Is Minecraft Dungeons a bold new direction for the series or just one-off?
Minecraft Dungeons is the massive off-shoot that trades the building and digging for a more action-focused take. Dungeons is a top-down action RPG about dungeon delving and co-op play.
Minecraft Dungeons doesn’t have the class split we’re used to seeing in that style of game, but you will be able to adopt a specific play style thanks to artefacts and character enchantments. The game also includes an array of weapons, giving it a distinct take on the Minecraft universe.
There’s a big focus on customisation and cosmetic unlocks for your character, too. Minecraft Dungeons even supports couch co-op if you can’t get online, or four players in online co-op.

Minecraft Dungeons is out Tuesday, May 26 on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch. It’s also part of both PC and Xbox Game Pass, where it’ll be available at launch.
