What you need to know
- Minecraft Earth is a mobile AR spin-off of Minecraft.
- It's still early on, so it's evolving a lot over time.
- The team is now making much-needed changes to make the game more playable at home.
- This includes more events in the world, as well as the ability to spawn Adventures.
It's still early days for Minecraft Earth, and that means the game is constantly changing. While its core problems remain unfixed, the game is getting some welcome improvements that closely follow what Pokemon Go has been changing, according to Minecraft Earth developer Aubrey Norris. The changes focus on letting people play more from the comfort of their home, without having to break their social distancing.
In @minecraftearth, you'll notice Tappables spawning more frequently and with more density, and you can also collect Adventure crystals so that you can spawn an Adventure right where you are and don't have to go out to an Adventure. Have you tried it yet?— Aubrey Norris 🥴 (@Chupacaubrey) March 25, 2020
This means that there will be more "tappables" (resources and other overworld events) spawning more frequently and in closer proximity to the player, as well as new Adventure crystals that allow players to spawn Adventures directly on top of them, instead of going out to find them. Hopefully this will encourage more people to avoid going outside and risking interaction with groups of people, but these changes shouldn't really go away even after the coronavirus outbreak is behind us.
