As a way to celebrate 10 years for the franchise, we announced today a brand-new Minecraft game – Minecraft Earth.

Minecraft Earth is an all new free-to-play augmented reality game for mobile that will bring the creative nature of Minecraft to the real world.

The game’s mechanics are simple: explore your neighborhood to find blocks and unique mobs for your builds.
