Minecraft Earth’s closed beta kicks off today in London and Seattle

The Minecraft Earth beta has begun and its first users are exploring the block-building potential of augmented reality. The closed beta is available to players who signed-up ahead of the start date and live in either London or Seattle, the two cities which are playing host to the first tests.

The only gameplay we’ve seen of the Pokemon Go-esque AR game is from the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference demo last month and the Minecraft Earth: Closed Beta Announcement video. But, as Eurogamer notes, anyone who signed up to the beta is allowed to post gameplay impressions and videos of their experiences, meaning we can finally get a closer look at how the game will play out.

The layout of Minecraft Earth is somewhat similar to Pokemon Go, allowing you to walk around the world exploring and collecting resources that will help you build structures. There are ‘Tappables’ dotted around the world that you can click to get blocks, resources, and items, and will also help you build up your XP and level up.
