What you need to know
- Minecraft Dungeons has been available for months on several digital platforms and storefronts.
- However, fans of physical games have been lamenting the lack of a disc option for Mojang Studio's latest title.
- This is change on September 8, with Minecraft Dungeons getting a physical release on Xbox, PS4, and Switch.
- You can pre-order the game starting now from Best Buy, if you want to make sure you get the game early.
September 8 is turning out to be a busy day for the co-op Diablo-them-up Minecraft Dungeons, with new DLC, free updates, and a physical release all happening at the same time. If you're one of the passionate gamers who still favors a physical disc over a digital code, you don't want to miss your opportunity to grab Minecraft Dungeons for Xbox, Playstation 4, or Nintendo Switch starting September 8, 2020.
Best Buy now has the physical version up for pre-order on their site, so you can reserve your copy a little under a month before they go live. A physical copy of Minecraft Dungeons will net you a cool $30 USD, but fortunately you're getting the full Hero Edition. That means you get:
- The Jungle Awakens DLC, which launched back in July.
- The Creeping Winter DLC, which launches the same day as the physical copies, on September 8, 2020.
- Cosmetic items to customize your character, like a Hero Cape and a baby chicken.

Dive into the dungeons on disc.
Minecraft Dungeons is already an epic co-op ARPG adventure on your favorite digital platform, but it has yet to be seen in the real world. Now that's about to change, with Minecraft Dungeons coming to discs for the first time with a physical release. Even better, the physical release is the Hero Edition, so it includes everything you need right out of the box.

The Xbox One does not seem to be able to send the PC a join request. The "invite to game" option is grayed out. How did you send the invite? Or is this super dated?
I think cross play isn't currently available but can be done with a workaround.
