Minecraft Legends multiplayer co-op explained

This article will give you an overview of everything you need to know about playing with your friends in the latest series spinoff.

Minecraft Legends Multiplayer: A player can be seen in the Overworld

Minecraft Legends does have multiplayer options both co-op and competitive. In co-op multiplayer the game allows you to team up with friends to build structures and grow your forces with drop-in drop-out co-op as we saw with Minecraft Dungeons. The PvP has support for up to eight players, split into teams of four.

Within the competitive mode, players have to work to defeat the other with strategy, equipment, structures, enemy forces, and their own resources and weapons they have gathered. These resources are all shared within your team in Minecraft Legends. In this mode, you can build enemy mazes and also upgrade towers to fortify your defences and protect yourself. Both modes include Minecraft Legends crossplay support which we were able to test out in our Minecraft Legends review.

Unlike the regular Minecraft game or Minecraft Dungeons, Minecraft Legends puts the focus on strategy and teaming up with friends to overpower large groups of enemies within the co-op mode. As such, the game is less focused on mining and small-scale material farming and focused on crafting and building structures to support your armies, which are only amplified when you add more players to your game.

Both modes work seamlessly with your game and progress, so you don’t need to worry about having to start a fresh playthrough.
