Minecraft’s Pokémon Go will not survive the second half of 2021: Minecraft Earth will close in June 2021 although, as a consolation, the game has received a latest update with the latest build of the game and that makes some changes to the game to “make it as fun as possible”.

In this way, integrated purchases are eliminated, prices are dramatically reduced, all the additional content for the game they had ready is included, the creation and casting time is reduced, the crafting and casting boosts that you have not used are exchanged for radio boosts of the same level and a set of objects is granted to the character creator for those who log into the game.

Players who own rubies will receive Minecoins, which can be used in the Minecraft Marketplace to purchase skins, texture packs, maps, and mini-games. If you ever made an in-app purchase in Minecraft Earth, you will receive a free copy of Minecraft (Bedrock Edition).
