This will have you building mechanical creations with new challenges and rewards.

If you’ve not kept up with iOS 14’s ARKit improvements, read this. It is going to be interesting to see if Minecraft Earth makes use of these features in the future.

That will no doubt make more people give Minecraft Earth a shot on mobile. If you’ve been wanting to play Minecraft Dungeons on mobile, check this out to see how it works on xCloud.
