What Is Minecraft Earth?

For those unaware, Minecraft Earth was a project designed by Microsoft. Much like Pokemon Go, the Minecraft Earth required gamers to team up and have free movement. It required the player to go against other players, Minecraft Earth combined virtual and augmented reality in the game.

However, with the pandemic and the risks of the virus, free movement or team play seems to be impossible.

That said, Minecraft is giving fans a proper send-off with a couple of updates before the shutdown.

Some of the updates include the complete removal of real money transactions. Minecraft will also be bringing down the ruby costs drastically and the time required for crafting and smelting will be reduced. Plus, all the unreleased and completed content will now be included down the pipeline. Minecraft also mentioned the character creator items will be given to those who sign up between now and June 20.
