Minecraft Earth finally available in the UK

Dig in.

At last, Minecraft Earth is available to everyone in the UK.

This is the long-awaited "Early Access" build of the game detailed back in September at Minecon Earth - and which we've played around with a good deal ourselves.

New from Minecraft Earth's closed beta are its Adventures - shared AR vignettes where you work together with others to gather rare resources - plus in-game systems for crafting and smelting.

Microsoft is a little behind schedule with the game's global rollout, but previously said it would launch Minecraft Earth in all countries before the end of 2019.
