Badges / Endowed Progress reported on May 24, 2022
There ARE achievements, but they're just for fun and far from mandatory.
Premium Currency reported on May 24, 2022
The bedrock version has an optional e-shop of skins and worlds. However, these can also be made or downloaded for free online.
Recurring Fee reported on May 24, 2022
Realms subscription exists, but is unnecessary.
Premium Currency reported on May 24, 2022
Bedrock only, there's a marketplace of skins and maps that you can purchase. However, it's entirely optional and not pushed on you, and the maps generally offer a completely separate experience from standard worlds.
Reciprocity reported on Jul 5, 2021
Sharing is optional and depends on how you play the game. Some players only play singleplayer and this isn't really an issue in multiplayer.
Competition reported on Jul 5, 2021
Competition is optional. You could choose to join a Player Versus Player multiplayer server, but you can also stay in Singleplayer.
Invested / Endowed Value reported on Jan 21, 2021
After building lots of stuff, the world feels important to you. But thats just how it is for sandbox games, is it not?

Regular achievements every game has.

Its mostly for helping your friend craft something, nothing bad here.
