Minecraft Dungeons is an action-RPG game set to be released in the second quarter of 2020 on Windows, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.[1] It can be played solo or online with up to four players.[2]

Development[edit]

It was created by Mojang under the creative director Mans Olsen, using Unreal Engine 4.[3]

Gameplay[edit]

Unlike Minecraft, Minecraft Dungeons has no crafting, building, or the ability to destroy blocks. Instead it focuses on being a dungeon crawler game, where the player explores randomly-generated dungeons filled with randomly-generated monsters, deals with traps and puzzles, and finds treasures.[4][5]

There is no class system. Anyone can use any weapon or armor they wish.[6]

Reception[edit]

Shacknews calls it "a fun, laid back dungeon crawler for friends to get into".[7]
