- Minecraft Dungeons is an action RPG from Mojang Studios and Xbox Game Studios, available on practically every platform imaginable.
- However, on Sept. 22, 2021, Minecraft Dungeons will be available to even more players with an imminent release on Steam.
- Steam players will be able to purchase and play Minecraft Dungeons' base game or Minecraft Dungeons Ultimate Edition.
- Minecraft Dungeons Ultimate Edition includes all DLC and post-launch content for the game, including the complete soundtrack and digital artwork.
Minecraft Dungeons' latest injection of content came in the form of the Echoing Void DLC, which coincided with the launch of Minecraft Dungeons Ultimate Edition. Now that the first chapter of Minecraft Dungeons is complete, and players can find the entire collection in one place, Minecraft Dungeons is making the jump to Steam on Sept. 22, 2021, giving players another place to access this intense and action-packed Minecraft spin-off.
Minecraft Dungeons was already available on PC through the Microsoft Store and Xbox Game Pass for PC, but many PC gamers primarily access their library through Steam. On Sept. 22, Minecraft Dungeons will be available on Steam, with two versions from which to choose. The base game of Minecraft Dungeons will run for $20, while the quintessential Ultimate Edition will run for $40, but will include all previously released content and DLC for Minecraft Dungeons, the complete original soundtrack, and some digital artwork.
This is the latest in a growing series of Xbox Game Studios titles to launch on Steam, and it'll be interesting to see if Minecraft Dungeons can capture the same level of success as previous games have on the massive platform. If you're interested in picking Minecraft Dungeons up from Steam, you can wishlist the title now for when it releases later next month. If you're impatient, you can also play Minecraft Dungeons right now on pretty much any other gaming platform, including Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and Xbox Cloud Gaming.
With Minecraft Dungeons' neverending support from Mojang Studios, it has earned its place on our list of best Xbox games. If you haven't played Minecraft Dungeons yet, it's worth a look when it releases on Steam.
