Minecraft Earth beta is coming to Android devices next week

It probably should be much of a surprise that there's a lot of interest about Minecraft Earth. The guys behind Minecraft are determined to bring the game to more people as Minecraft Earth is now available on most Android devices.

Like Pokemon Go, Minecraft Earth is an augmented reality (AR) mobile game where players can explore the real world and build within it using Minecraft blocks.

That's all about to change.

For Android users interested in jumping into Minecraft Earth, go to the Minecraft website at this link, and sign up to potentially get access. It'll be arriving sometime next week, though Mojang didn't say when, specifically, we can expect it to land.

Android players, we've heard your call.

Minecraft Earth was first revealed by Microsoft in May, with a trailer launched as part of the 10th-anniversary celebrations for the IP. Other players can see and interact with your builds, which is neat.

Requirements for the closed beta include a mobile device running Android 7 or iOS10, plus a Microsoft or Xbox Live account (which can be created for free). Have the app store log-in ready as well plus answers to questions to complete registration. The game is only for 18 years old and above.

Tests of Minecraft Earth have been underway for one month on iOS, providing a brief demo of the full experience. We still don't know when the game will launch, but it is worth pointing out that it's up for pre-registration on the Google Play Store as of today. You can find out more about it here.
