    Yes it's from Microsoft, yes it's blocky and yes, it's pretty much Pokemon GO: Minecraft Edition w/o Pokemon! Announced today, Minecraft Earth is an AR mobile game allowing you to superimpose Minecraft blocks in the real world. Some of the game's features include:
    • Collect! Minecraft Earth features many of the mobs you know and love, along with a bunch of new ones we can’t wait to show you. Over time, you’ll get the chance to discover unique variants, and use them to populate your builds. Minecraft pigs parading around your local park? That’s about to become your reality.
    • Explore! Your real-life neighbourhood is about to take on a new dimension. Gather resources, take on challenges, and experience a whole new world to discover!
    • Collaborate! Build even better by teaming up with other Minecraft Earth players. You can craft amazing creations together. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
    • Survive! Sure, you’re good at fighting hostile mobs in Minecraft, but are you ready to battle Minecraft mobs in real life? Best of luck, because we’re going to put your survival skills to the test!
    There is no release window for this title but a limited beta is planned for this summer and registrations are live on the official website.

    I think it's a neat idea.

    Would certainly be cool to see what people make with it if they can leave their designs/builds for others to find.

    I think it's a great idea. Not much of a minecraft player myself but i do see a lot of potential in this. Would be awesome to explore the world and suddenly come across a huge large dungeon someone built making it so like a real life rpg/adventure game
    Someones comment made laugh tho '' Minecraft irl: U can build things Players: build penises ''

    Well, Roblox already supports VR, so at this point why not. It's not like I have to play it.

    Huh so is this a trial for what the hololens minecraft will be like. looks cool if they had a vr headset but otherwise its annoying to build if you have to hold up the phone yourself while doing it.

    I absolutely love how angry people get about anything related to Minecraft or Fortnite.

    I think this game can do well. Granted, I probably won't ever touch it. But I'm gonna hold back on the elitist snobbiness that often comes with prefering certain games over others.
