Microsoft wants to follow the success of Pokémon Go with Minecraft Earth

Despite the success that Fortnite has had in the last two years, Minecraft is still the king in terms of video views on YouTube of a video game. Both games are completely different and despite the fact that Minecraft arrived on the market 10 years ago, Microsoft has managed to keep it after buying it, to continue to attract the general public.

Virtual and augmented reality are increasingly present in video games. Pokémon GO and Apple’s continuous demonstrations in this section with each new iPhone presentation are a clear example. If you add Minecraft to augmented reality, we find Minecraft Earth.

Microsoft has announced the upcoming release of Minecraft Earth, its commitment to augmented reality based on Minecraft and that will allow us to build whatever comes to mind in the park next to our house, on the road we do every day to go to study or work in addition to allowing us to add aesthetic elements to urban decoration or even creatures that we can find in the game on a regular basis.

Another of the attractions that Minecraft Earth will offer us is that we will be able to form groups of friends to build together, all on a real scale, as we can see in the presentation video of this new game that MMicrosoft just opened the beta phase for all users who want to help it arrive as soon as possible in its final version.

Minecraft Earth will be available in version for iOS and Android. To be able to install it on iOS it is necessary that our terminal is managed by iOS 10 or higherwhile on Android, the game requires Android 7 or higher.

If you want to be part of the beta program, a beta that will be very limited, you can do it through this link. As that page indicates, the large number of questions we have to answer is because they want to select the best candidates. The guys at Microsoft want to people who regularly play and know the world of Minecraft.
