You probably remember Minecraft: Dungeons – as an isometric ARPG reminiscent of Diablo, it’s a pretty weird pivot away from the freeform building sensation in its title. Minecraft studio Mojang unveiled it at Minecon last year, promising a release in 2019. That appears to have slipped: at Microsoft’s E3 conference just now, it was announced for release in spring 2020.
It will be supported with Xbox Game Pass from launch onward, and will have four-player local and online co-op. We also saw a decent chunk of gameplay, and from the looks of things, friends will be able to drop in fairly seamlessly. Character personalisation is a thing, as are weapon enchantments, loot, and treasure. You ultimate goal is “to take down the evil Arch-Illager”, which we’re sure makes sense in context.
