Similar to the original, Minecraft Earth is centered around building structures, gathering resources, crafting and exploration. Players could build augmented reality structures in collaboration with other players, gather resources through tapping on "tappables" in the in-game map, and access "Adventures" which may be a puzzle or a specific task, or a virtual location with hostile entities to defeat. The adventures reward players with in-game currency. Collaborative construction is done on "build plates", and players can share copies of their completed structures. Minecraft Earth takes into account physical objects such as trees and lakes so there are fewer incidents and interferences with the AR simulation.
