There’s a new Minecraft game coming out, but it’s not what you’d expect and is more like Minecraft Dungeons than the original game. Minecraft Legends was announced at the Xbox Showcase at Summer Game Fest and it takes the beloved block building and crafting game series and turns it into an action strategy game that asks you to defend the Overworld from a deadly piglin enemy invasion.
The game is played from a third-person point of view and allows you to lead allies into battle in the Minecraft universe. It looks like it’s going to bring a fresh and unique take on Mojang’s original concept, so fans of the series will want to keep their eyes out for the Minecraft Legends release date.
We’ve put all the information we have on when the new action strategy Minecraft game is going to be in your hands below, along with a trailer so that you can get a better idea of what to expect.
Minecraft Legends release date rumours
Minecraft Legends will be released in Spring 2023. This is according to a gameplay trailer released during Minecraft Live 2022. While an official date hasn’t been announced, we’d expect it to release sometimes between March and May 2023, similar to when Minecraft Dungeons launched.
We should hear more about a release window for the game in the coming months, so we will update this article once we have a firm date.
Minecraft Legends gameplay
Minecraft Legends gameplay was shown in detail at Minecraft Live 2022. This video showed off some of the strategy and action you can expect with the unique blended experience Mojang Studios are crafting.
We get to see what it takes to attack a base, craft items, mine for materials, and make large structures. This touches on what The Loadout saw at Gamescom which is that Minecraft Legends is more about crafting large items than mining for items on a small scale.
Minecraft Legends is also going to be making its way to Game Pass next year. But, before then you can keen an eye on everything you need to know about the game ahead of the Minecraft Legends release date right here
