Microsoft has unexpectedly announced Minecraft Earth, a completely new game in the series, developed exclusively for iOS and Android. The project works with the mechanics of augmented reality in like Pokémon Go, adding the already well-known gameplay from the original.

Players will be able to create buildings alone or with friends in their room, and then go and place them in full size somewhere on the street. You will be able to manage wildlife mobs and resources around you, then use them in the afterwards. In many ways, it resembles the whole core experience of Minecraft.

Microsoft acquired Minecraft in 2014 and for many years sought to turn it into a family-friendly, educational and creative product. Interestingly, the company previously demonstrated the AR-version of Minecraft at E3, using the HoloLens AR platform.

The company claims that closed beta testing will begin in summer, but has not yet indicated when the public launch will take place. The game will be distributed with the F2P model and will not include loot-boxes (which does not mean the absence of built-in purchases). New details are worth waiting for in June at E3 2019.
