Minecon 2019 is now in full swing, and developer Mojang has announced some exciting news to fans of its sandbox block-builder in a livestream at the show. Minecraft Earth – the alternate reality version of the game for mobiles – is getting a global rollout. It’s been revealed that Minecraft Earth will launch in Early Access in October, and you can begin pre-registering to find out when it’ll arrive in your country starting today.
Mojang has announced that Minecraft Earth will release in smaller markets around the world at first, but once it’s got off the ground and is faring well in those, it’ll start making its way to others, coming to more countries every few days or weeks. It looks like the plan is to get it worldwide by the holidays this year.
As this release is Early Access, players won’t yet get to experience everything the final build will have to offer – instead, this version will include all the features you’ll need to enjoy the game on a core level, with more content and features to arrive later on, around Spring 2020. The studio’s idea is to get the game to players now, so they can help grow and develop it – as well as get stuck into it now for fun, of course.
