Minecraft: Dungeons will take Mojang’s wondrous block builder universe in a whole new, Diablo-esque direction. With Minecon 2019 now wrapped, we’ve got a new trailer and some fresh details on what the dungeon-crawler inspired title will bring, like spells, tons of loot, and battle llamas. Now, with the game due to arrive sometime in spring 2020, you have the chance to join the closed beta – sign ups are live.
If you head over to the Minecraft: Dungeons website, you can put yourself forward to join the closed beta which the devs will be hosting “some time in the future.” You’ll need a Microsoft account to register on the sign up form, but as the site says, they’re free to set up in case you haven’t already got one. You’ll also need to be 18 years old or above to join the fun.
There’s no specific date given for when the Minecraft: Dungeons closed beta will kick off but perhaps players might get to test out some of the cool features announced so far. The game will feature Minecraft’s iconic, blocky art style – but the similarity to the hugely popular sandbox game pretty much ends there.
It’s an action-adventure game that will see you take on set quests and locations, as well as a nemesis called Arch-Illager, with various weapons, mobs, and items – but no mining or building. It’ll also feature drop-in, drop-out co-op play, with difficulty that dynamically adjusts based on the current number of players.
