At Minecon Earth this weekend, Mojang announced Minecraft Dungeons, an “action-adventure game inspired by classic dungeon crawlers.”
The game sees up to four players “battling through action-packed, treasure-stuffed, wildly varied levels” as they attempt to take down the Arch-Illager and save the villagers. Watch the official announcement trailer below:
“Discover new weapons and items that will help you defeat a ruthless swarm of new-and-nasty mobs,” the developer added. “Fight or flee through canyons, swamps and – of course – mines! Any adventurer brave or foolish enough (or a bit-of-both!) to explore this blocky and beautiful world will need to come prepared. So quickly, gear up!”
Minecraft: Dungeons is scheduled to launch on PC in 2019. A console release has not been mentioned.
