Microsoft has now officially announced that it’s bringing Minecraft Earth (which it has acquired from its creator back in 2014) to iOS and Android, in Augmented Reality (AR) form.
That means that you, the player, will be able to build things directly on your desk or kitchen table if you so feel inclined, playing solo in the evenings or alongside your friends, and then place your buildings in the outside world whenever they’re finished.
The platform is still under development but, according to Microsoft, a limited beta version will become available during the summer and Minecraft Earth will be free to play on both iOS and Android.
However, the company was quiet about when that will happen and we don’t have a clue about the game’s pricing structure. But, since summer’s just around the corner, Microsoft will most likely start teasing the game sometime at the end of May or in June. We’ll keep you posted!
