Stay up to date with new mobs, buildplates, and challenges in our Minecraft Earth update guide

Minecraft Earth players

October 07, 2020: We’ve added the latest info on Minecraft Earth update 0.27.

There’s always another Minecraft Earth update coming to the location-based game, but sometimes it can be hard to hear about it. This isn’t a massive game, and changes often drop fairly quietly, adding new mobs, buildplates, and challenges. Sometimes you might not hear about a Minecraft Earth update. For those of you playing the game, it’s important to know what new content is on the way.

That’s why we’ve decided to create a Minecraft Earth update guide. No matter whether it’s a new challenge season, a fresh in-game feature, or a new buildplate to get DIY with, we’re going to round up every Minecraft Earth update, and put them all together in one handy place. Pretty smart, eh?

If you enjoy this article, then make sure to check our list of the best location based games on mobile, for more games like Minecraft Earth that you might enjoy. And if you like building, some of our best mobile strategy games are most certainly for you. We hope you find the guide helpful!

Here is the latest Minecraft earth update:
