New updates coming to Minecraft Earth

Discover new and game-changing features!

While some of you might be too young to remember (in which case get off my lawn, you whippersnappers!), Minecraft used to be pretty different from the game we know and love today. Even though it’s hard to imagine an Overworld without llamas or turtles, they haven’t always been there (yes, I’ve checked). That’s one of the things that makes it so great – and now, Minecraft Earth is following in its footsteps.

Exciting changes are coming, and that’s all thanks to you! Yes, you! At Mojang, we love player feedback, and we’ve read all of your suggestions on how we can improve the Minecraft Earth experience. I’ve also emailed Saxs some fun changes like making the interface completely gesture-based and featuring full TikTok integration. We’ve been working hard to prepare some new features that will make Minecraft Earth even more fun to play. Without further ado...

Adventure Crystals

You know what’s better than heading out in search of adventures? Staying in and adventuring on your terms. Previously, these life-sized slices of Minecraft were scattered across the map and you had to walk a fair bit to get to them. That’s usually fine, but during these strange and scary times, going outside may not be the best idea. And even in normal circumstances, sometimes you just don’t feel like leaving the house – and that’s okay. Thanks to these new Adventure Crystals, you can now mine, fight, and loot wherever and whenever you want.

Can’t wait to get your hands on them? First, you should know that right now, you can only find Common, Uncommon, and Rare crystals. The Epic and Legendary ones are on the way! So where can you get them? Adventure Crystals can be found in tappables – and you also receive a Common crystal every day through Challenges! Plus, at the end of each Adventure you’ll uncover an Adventure Chest with amazing loot, including additional crystals – some of higher rarity than the Adventure you are in. Of course, you can use the crystals by yourself or invite a friend to join in on the fun.

The best part? More updates are coming!

You heard it! More is to come, and we will be announcing several new features in the upcoming weeks! Make sure you keep an eye on our socials or come back to this post to check for updates on the other new features coming your way. Also, please keep the feedback coming through help.minecraft.netMinecraft Earth on Twitter, and Minecraft Earth on Discord. Haven’t played yet? It’s time to download Minecraft Earth for free on iOS or Android and fix that. Happy mining!
