Minecraft Earth Patch Notes

New stuff (and some changes) coming your way on Minecraft Earth!

Minecraft Earth R9 Patch Notes

General: 

  • Get to know your way around with the new Build Mode tutorial – much easier than putting together furniture IRL! 
  • Improved speed of sign-in and app resume speeds by up to 50% on all platforms because loading screens are only cute the first 5 times you see them. 
  • Free stuff! Players are now gifted starting items the first time they enter Build Mode. 
  • Location reporting now has comment box for specifying detailed reasons like “busy road,” “water feature,” and “super haunted, abandon hope ye who Adventure here.” 
  • Layout of your profile and Buildplates has been updated – spiffy! 
  • Not such a tough row to hoe – farming in Buildplates now requires tools for harvesting. 
  • We added more Adventures for you to explore. ALGEBRAIC!  

Audio: 

  • Lofi Beats to Mine and Craft To: Buildplates build and play mode added Vanilla ambient music. 

Mobs:
