Minecraft Dungeons can be played alone but seriously benefits from co-op fun. Today during Minecraft Live, the developers revealed that Minecraft Dungeons cross-play is coming later this year in a free update. This means players across Xbox One, PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch can all get in on the dungeon-crawling action together.
While there's no exact release date, the cross-play update is coming at some point in November, so players shouldn't be waiting too long. Minecraft Dungeons is also available to play via Xbox Cloud Gaming via Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and even supports touch controls.
Minecraft Dungeons has continued to grow since launch, with the release of the Jungle Awakens and Creeping Winter DLCs. More updates and endgame features are planned, as is future DLC. There's plenty of other news coming out of Minecraft Live, regardless of whether you enjoy Minecraft, such as the upcoming Caves and Cliffs update set to release in Summer 2021 or the Howling Peaks DLC for Minecraft Dungeons.
Not your average Minecraft
Minecraft explores the dungeons.
Minecraft Dungeons is the next saga in Minecraft's story, and Mojang Studios have knocked another one out of the park. Awesome co-op combat paired with powerful loot, all at a crazy affordable price? There's not much more you could ask for in an epic dungeon crawling ARPG.
Better late than never. I was dumbfounded to know that it wasn't cross play from launch, but glad to see it coming!
