Minecraft Earth beta finally hits Android next week

The game is a free-to-play augmented reality experience, somewhat similar to Niantic's Pokemon Go and allows players to explore the world of Minecraft through mobile devices.

It probably should be much of a surprise that there's a lot of interest about Minecraft Earth. If you manage to get into the closed beta, you will receive a free skin for Minecraft Earth and Minecraft Bedrock, which is only available for a limited time.

In July the first closed beta for Minecraft Earth was released to select residents in London, Seattle, Stockholm, and Tokyo. It'll be arriving sometime next week, though Mojang didn't say when, specifically, we can expect it to land. A tweet from the official Minecraft Earth Twitter account reveals that next week, a handful of Android users will be able to get their hands on the Minecraft-meets-VR mobile game. The real world plus Minecraft can be fun for the whole family and friends because you can build creations with new mobs and play together. Next week, we'll be bringing the #MinecraftEarth beta to your devices!

Minecraft Earth requires smartphones running on Android 7 Nougat or later, which support Android's ARCore augmented reality platform. Also, you need a Microsoft or Xbox Live account, app store log-in, and answers to a few questions to complete your registrations. By signing up, you'll enter a pool of eligibility for the Android Minecraft Earth beta. We'll let you know when the beta goes live on Android, so stay tuned for more.
