Minecraft: Legends surprised all of us at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase. A new action-strategy game from Mojang, Legends features a massive open world structured around traditional RPG elements. If you think Dragon Quest: Builders, you are not far away. So what do we know about Minecraft: Legends so far?
Do Minecraft: Legends do you have a release date?
Minecraft: Legends has no release date, but is slated for 2023. Again, the launch message was that everything would be playable IN ONE year, not NEXT. The semantics are important here because June 2023 is very different from November 2023, especially for a target audience that has summer vacation.
Do Minecraft: Legends have a trailer?
Yes! Minecraft: Legends premiered this trailer at the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase. It showed a variety of environments and characters, as you’d expect, but revealed little in terms of story.
East Minecraft: Legends coming to Game Pass?
What do you think? YES! Minecraft: Legends is confirmed for Game Pass.
What is Minecraft: Legends gameplay like?
Minecraft: Legends presents itself as a unique action strategy game. According to the official site, it mixes elements of strategy with the “immersion” of action games. You’ll stay in a third-person perspective and do things like defend settlements or fight horde battles. It says “you are at the center of every battle you fight, fighting alongside your allies while giving them directions”, so it looks like there will be elements of strategy or turn-based in the fight. There will also be a lot of construction, obviously.
What is the Minecraft: Legends story?
In an Xbox Wire blog post Dennis Ries, Minecraft Legends executive producer said:
In Minecraft Legends, players will discover a sweet land that is both familiar and mysterious, full of lush biomes and rich resources. But this beautiful land is on the verge of a terrible change – the pig invasion has begun and threatens to corrupt the Overworld. It’s up to the player to make unexpected friends (including classic mobs you’ll recognize from Minecraft) to form valuable alliances and pave the way for strategic battles against fierce Nether invaders.
Ries also confirmed online campaign co-op and multiplayer in addition to the main campaign.
Who are the Minecraft: Legends characters?
Minecraft: Legends didn’t reveal any named characters, but it looks like players will be taking on the role of a legendary hero according to the website:
Minecraft Legends is a brand new game that tells the story of the Overworld uniting against an invasion by hungry piglins. According to legend, only you can muster the mobs of the Overworld and help them defend their home. The events in which you will participate are neither fact nor fiction; they are simply part of a tale that has been passed down from villager to villager. There is no trace or evidence of the great hero who raised his banner to save the Overworld – all that remains is a mighty legend.
