Minecraft Dungeons is an action-adventure game inspired by dungeon crawlers. This game was originally inspired by Nintendo 3DS games and was created to be played on this device. However, Minecraft Dungeons expanded its reign to include PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
Minecraft Dungeons is a multiplayer or single-player game. Up to 4 players can play and complete quests together. Dungeons edition offers multiple quests, an end goal, and an overarching enemy called the Arch-Illager.
Many players are interested in Minecraft Dungeons, especially since it was only released last year. Here is everything players need to know about Minecraft Dungeons in 2021.
Everything players need to know about Minecraft Dungeons
This game is not like any other Minecraft game ever before. In Dungeons, players are not able to craft or mine blocks like they would in regular Minecraft. This is a completely separate game that focuses on quests and action fighting. Its a standard dungeon crawler type game.
When the player starts playing Dungeons, they’ll start receiving missions and tasks to complete. There’s a lot of guidance for players just starting off. There are often messages at the top of the screen informing the player of what they must do to complete their current quest.
Each mission the player goes on is replayable on varying levels of difficulty. This means that if a player completes all their missions and quests in easy mode the first time they play through, they have the opportunity to go back and replay the entire game on a harder difficulty.
Each mission offers different loot rewards that can be found along the way and after each mission is completed. There are also standard Minecraft mobs to battle, such as creepers.
While players don’t have the ability to craft or mine in this game, they still are able to enchant their armor and weapons. Players pick up weapons and armor in loot chests found all around the game. There’s a very different enchantment system in Dungeons than in regular Minecraft, but players are still able to level up their armor and weapons to fight mobs.
