The 3D sandbox adventure game Minecraft celebrated it’s 10-year anniversary on May 17, 2019. At that time, sales of the game had reached 176 million copies across all platforms worldwide. Mojang announced an all new free-to-play augmented reality game for iOS and Android mobiles, called Minecraft Earth. Early access previews of the game released last month ahead of the global release in December. Minecraft are bringing the game to the real world over the next three weekends in New York, London and right here in Australia, specifically Campbell’s Cove in Sydney.
The statues are life-sized creations of the Muddy Pig, Moobloom and the all-new, amazingly-festive Jolly Llama which will feature a scannable QR code to play an exclusive new adventure built by the Minecraft Earth development team and allow players to receive exclusive access to the Jolly Llama in-game before it’s globally available in December. The pop-ups will be live from 10am-7pm during the weekends of November 16-17, November 23-24 and November 30-December 1 at Campbell’s Cove, Sydney.
With so much time now spent online, Minecraft Earth is encouraging players to get outside and share social multiplayer experiences with other players. Minecraft Earth has created a whole new way to explore the world, whether it’s to build something on top a unique landmark in your neighbourhood, or just see the world from an entirely new augmented reality perspective.
Details of the event is as follows:
