Ever wanted to build a castle or a working calculator over, say, the pub on the street corner? Well, Minecraft Earth probably won’t let you build something that advanced. But you can try, with the game launching on Android and iOS in Australia today.
Microsoft announced the AR game’s availability this morning, adding that the early access version would have smelting, crafting, new mobs and procedurally generated adventures that weren’t available in the closed beta build.
“[Adventures are] small slices of procedurally generated, limited-time Minecraft worlds that you play in augmented reality in life size and are just one of the experiences that are optimised for social multiplayer,” Microsoft said.
The company also put together a cute little PSA video, reminding people not to do exceedingly dumb shit in real life just because they’re playing Minecraft Earth. If you walk in front of a tram or into a lake, that’s on you.
