What you need to know
Recently, Minecraft Earth Early Access went live in the United Kingdom and the United States. The download is a free-to-play game that blends augmented reality (AR) with a new version of Minecraft built on the Bedrock Engine. The goal is to build structures and explore a superimposed Minecraft world wherever you are.
Many gamers didn't think that Minecraft Earth would see the popularity Minecraft enjoys on platforms like iOS. However, that doesn't appear to be the case. Today, Xbox's Aubrey Norris tweeted that Minecraft Earth was the most-downloaded app on the Apple App Store. We were able to verify this and can confirm it's the most-downloaded app currently in the United States.
It's great to see that the game is enjoying such popularity. Hopefully, this is going to continue down the line. However, only time will tell. Do you think it's going to be as popular as Pokémon Go? Let us know.
