Mojang's next adventure into the wonderful world of Minecraft is none other than Minecraft Dungeons, an aggressive entry that combines the best of Diablo with the sandbox title everyone knows and love. The only way I can think of to make the experience even better is to combine it with all those friends I wish I had. If you have friends, here's everything you need to know about co-op in Minecraft Dungeons.
How can I play with friends in Minecraft Dungeons?
Minecraft Dungeons is a fantastic platform for social features and gameplay, so of course Mojang made those features front and center when you're playing. The only requirement? Be hanging out at your camp, which is your rest point between every level. Here you can take a moment to upgrade your weapons with enchantments, buy new gear with emeralds, and more.
If you're at camp, all you need to do to play with friends is open the Friends menu using the "View" button (the one that looks like two interlocking squares) or pressing the "F" key on a keyboard. This brings up a handy screen that lets you add more controllers for local play (yes you can do that!), check to see if any of your friends are already playing and have active sessions that you can join, or select one of your friends from a list to invite to your own game.
The UI is simple and put together pretty well, so it's easy to either join games or get friends to join yours. Even better, Minecraft Dungeons does support local play so you can get multiple people playing on one device! Local play isn't a guarantee in any game anymore, so it's awesome to see it here.
Better together, even in Dungeons
Competitive multiplayer isn't for everyone, but cooperative games with friends and families can make a world of difference when playing games, and Minecraft Dungeons has a great formula to support it. Whenever you jump into Minecraft Dungeons, be sure jump on with others and tackle the Arch-Illagers hordes hand-in-hand. That way when you're beaten anyways it's not just your fault.
Minecraft goes full RPG
Minecraft grows up and reaches out.
Minecraft Dungeons is the next saga in Minecraft's story, and it looks like Mojang and Microsoft are hitting another one out of the park. Minecraft Dungeons combines the familiar world we all grew up on with an injection of Diablo, a whole lot of fun. Available on every platform you're on, for a ridiculously attractive price, what's not to love?
