Minecraft Earth is the new augmented reality game from Mojang (Microsoft) teams that is similar to what Pokemon Go is in the video game industry for smartphone applications. The title was announced on the occasion of the 10 years of the license (still as popular as ever). After invading all gaming platforms in its classic version, Minecraft will export itself in a completely different way by exploiting augmented reality from this summer 2019 with a first phase of closed beta that is approaching fast.
If you don’t know how to register to download and play Minecraft Earth on your device, we will explain below what you need to know about it. You will need some prerequisites, such as your « App Store » ID or a « google minecraft earth id » if you have an Android device.
What do I need to register and play Minecraft Earth ?
To play Minecraft Earth, you must use a mobile device that has at least Android 7 or iOS 10. You will also need a Microsoft or Xbox Live account (Mojang has been a member of Microsoft for a few years now), your « App Store ID » if you are on iPhone or your « google id » if you are on Android as we explained above. So first of all, if you don’t have Android 7 or iOS 10 you simply can’t play Minecraft Earth on your device that won’t be compatible with the application!
