Minecraft has remained one of the most popular video games in the world, and millions of people continue to play the title each day. The cute graphics, easy-to-pick-up, and creative gameplay experience, plus a constant stream of new content updates make it a remarkable and enjoyable experience. Recently, during the E3 2019 Microsoft panel, the company announced Minecraft Dungeons.
Many gamers may have got their first taste of a pure sandbox with the help of the original JAVA version which was released for the PC a decade ago. The game has come a long way since then, and it is present across a large number of platforms, including the PS3 and PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, Android, iOS and others.
Mojang worked a lot on the base game, but some players were looking forward towards a breath of fresh air. If you are one of them, you will be happy to learn that Minecraft Dungeons will be released in Spring 2020.
Minecraft Dungeons would launch next year for Windows, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PS4
Minecraft Dungeons was announced a few months ago, but many details about the title remained elusive. More information was shared during the Microsoft Conference, which took place at E3. Many sources thought that the game would use a first-person perspective, but it seems that they were wrong. A short gameplay trailer showcased a top-down dungeon crawler in the vein of the iconic Diablo games.
Players will explore thematic dungeons filled with monsters and loot. The game will include an assortment of equipable items, among which we can count armor, weapons, and special items which grant a unique skill. Four-player local and online co-op capabilities were also teased, but there is no sign of a single-player mode or campaign.
The initial announcement inferred that the game would be a PC exclusive, but at the end of the video, it is mentioned that the game will be playable on Windows, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PS4. It will be included in the Xbox Game Pass initiative. Microsoft and Mojang will likely share more information about Minecraft Dungeons in the future.
