Microsoft and Mojang, the original creators of Minecraft, have announced a new game in the series set to the tone and style of the original but with a completely new gameplay style. Called Minecraft Dungeons, the game is an action RPG set to release on Xbox One and PC in the spring of 2020.
Fight your way through an all-new action-adventure game, inspired by classic dungeon crawlers and set in the Minecraft universe! Brave the dungeons alone, or team up with friends! Up to four players can battle together through action-packed, treasure-stuffed, wildly varied levels – all in an epic quest to save the villagers and take down the evil Arch-Illager! Discover a trove of powerful new weapons and items that will help you defeat ruthless swarms of new-and-nasty mobs. Fight or flee through canyons, swamps and – of course – mines! Any adventurer brave or foolish enough to explore this blocky and beautiful world will need to come prepared. So quickly, gear up!
Minecraft Dungeons looks to inherit a lot of the "Diablo" formula as players look to enter dungeons, defeat baddies, and collect loot to customize and personalize their characters. The family friendly title will feature four player couch co-op or online co-op play with cross platform support.
Check the below screens and video for Minecraft Dungeons to get a taste of things to come. There will be two editions available at launch, the standard for $19.99 or the Hero Edition for $29.99. There are no details what the Hero Edition entails, but expect plenty of customization options for your characters.
While the game was shown off at the Microsoft press conference, Minecraft Dungeons will also be making its way to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
