Minecraft Earth, developed by Mojang and published by Xbox Game Studios, is an Augmented reality video game. It was launched back in October 2019 and is available on Android, iOS, and iPadOS. In the game, players have to build augmented reality structures on “Buildplates” with other players, then tour them in full size in Play Mode. Players have to visit in the real world to build structures and collect other items in the game.
Well, as we all know, due to Coronavirus pandemic across the globe, most of the countries are lockdown, and people are advised to stay at home. Staying at home is the safest option as there is still no vaccine for COVID-19. Developers of the Minecraft Earth, concerning safety, have announced that Adventures in the game are moving indoors for some time. Check out below the official statement :
⚠ Safety First! ⚠ Adventures are moving indoors! In the interest of player safety, we’re temporarily disabling public Adventure spawns. Don’t worry, you are still able summon Adventures at home with Adventure Crystals.

Minecraft Earth is built on the foundation of a passionate and creative community – we’re building this game together. We have always approached the development of the game as a collaboration with our players and naturally, your health and safety are incredibly important to us.
In light of the developing COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily removed public Adventures from Minecraft Earth. In many places around the world, there are mandatory shelter-in-place orders that have closed most public areas and gatherings, which would make many public Adventures both inaccessible and potentially dangerous. You will still be able to spawn private Adventures with Adventure Crystals, but you will not see public Adventures spawn on the Map. This is not a permanent change, but we do not yet have a specified end-date as our decision is informed by the precautionary measures outlined by the World Health Organization.
In late March, we introduced new game mechanics to adapt Minecraft Earth for at-home play. Adventure Crystals, more Tappable spawns, and increased Tappable density allow you to experience everything Minecraft Earth has to offer while sheltering in place and practicing social distancing. You will soon also have the ability to share copies of your Buildplates with your friends remotely. We are committed to the continued development of Minecraft Earth, and the dev team would love to hear any ideas you have about how we can better adapt the game to suit at-home play. We welcome your feedback at Blog post and thank you for your continued support of Minecraft Earth.
We hope you are safe and suggest you stay at home as now you can even enjoy Minecraft Earth at your comfort zone. Rest assured, we will be updating you as and when any new info arrives from the Developers.
