Minecraft Earth: New augmented reality game will let players build in the real world | Science & Tech News – News

Minecraft Earth will be hoping to have similar success to Pokemon Go, which was a massive hit and saw players searching their neighbourhoods for virtual creatures.

The makers say the new version will allow gamers to “create masterpieces together” and take their builds “into the wild at full size” – and even promise “Minecraft pigs parading around your local park”.
