The worldwide phenomenon, Minecraft, meets dungeon crawler, in this top-down, action-adventure spin-off. While Minecraft Dungeons has the classic art style, enemies and weapons from the main game, its gameplay has been overhauled drastically – and it’s available for purchase and download right now on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC and Xbox Game Pass.
In Minecraft Dungeons you’ll be personalising your character, venturing into dungeons, slaying mobs and looting for better weapons and armour – instead of building, creating and surviving in the first-person like you usually would. In this sense Minecraft Dungeons has more in common with Diablo and other dungeon creepers than it does with Minecraft proper.
The game offers deep customisation so you can play the game your way. You can focus on defence with a heavy tank build, slay enemies up-close with a sword, or provide support from afar with ranged weapons. Either way it’ll be fun to mix and match play styles and build the perfect party with Minecraft Dungeon’s four player co-op. If you’re more of a lone wolf, then no worries, Minecraft Dungeons is also completely playable solo!
- • Dungeon Creeper! Battle new-and-nasty mobs in this all-new action-adventure, inspired by classic dungeon crawlers.
- • Multiplayer! Up to four players can team up and fight together in co-op mode.
- • Power Up! Unlock dozens of unique items and weapon enchantments for devastating special attacks.
- • Options! Personalise your character, then fight up-close and personal with melee swings, hang back with ranged attacks or tank your way through swarms of mobs, shielded by heavy armour!
- • Epicness! Explore treasure-stuffed levels in a quest to take down the evil Arch-Illager!
Minecraft Dungeons is available now on Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC for £16.74. Or you can play it on Xbox One and PC through Xbox Game Pass where the game is also available.
