Minecraft is literally taking over the planet (Ok, well the “Earth”)

10 years after the release of the original Minecraft game, that was originally on PC, Microsoft has just launched a free mobile version of the game called Minecraft Earth that uses augmented reality.

What that means is that unlike in other versions of Minecraft where you created things with blocks in a virtual world…now you’ll build with virtual objects in the real world thanks to the camera on your smartphone.

Minecraft Earth is currently available for iOS and Android devices and while it’s free…I did notice that it has some in-app purchases.
