How to play Minecraft Earth multiplayer with friends

4 min read

Minecraft Earth started its closed beta around the world and tasted the new spin-off from augmented reality (AR). By combining the creative blockbuster with real-world mapping, early foundations are already a promising starting point that corresponds to Pokemon GO. Multiplayer extends the app beyond your device and attracts groups of friends to a shared virtual world.

The course of resource collections from Minecraft Earth is linked to & # 39; Buildplates & # 39 ;, the creative canvas of the game for building in AR. Multiplayer extends your experience to friends so that players can work together and build in a shared space.

However, Microsoft has not made multiplayer simple, at least in its current iOS beta. Multiplayer requires a host to share its Buildplate via a QR code, with subsequent players participating in the selected scenario in a multi-step process.

  1. Press Buildplate icon in the Minecraft Earth menu bar.
  2. choose To build or Play based on your preferred mode.
  3. Place you Buildplate on a flat, structured surface.
  4. Press ellipse button in the upper right corner.
  5. choose Invite a friend. Your unique QR code is displayed.

Other players can now participate in your game via the generated QR code by following the steps.

With a generated QR code, remaining players can now join the world. The current implementation of Microsoft is somewhat complicated and something that we first interpreted as a bug. Diving deeper into the iOS TestFlight notes outlines a two-step process, despite the fact that no references were found in the game.

  1. Press Play with friends icon in the Minecraft Earth menu bar.
  2. Scan the host QR code. You are automatically added to the game, although the host buildplate is not displayed.
  3. Scan the host QR code using your in-game seeker a second time. This helps orientate your position in the world and allows you to view and work with blocks.
  4. Repeat the steps for all participating players.

Although the implementation initially has some non-intuitive obstacles, probably due to beta status, the Minecraft Earth multiplayer proves its potential in beta. Positioning and fluidity seem consistent in augmented reality and offer a new building experience with friends.

The running beta of Minecraft Earth is currently exclusive to iOS devices, via a limited pool of enrolled applicants through the beta sign-up portal. Expect wider availability and an Android expansion in the coming weeks, awaiting a full launch scheduled for later in 2019.
