Minecraft: Dungeons, a brand new game set in the world of Minecraft, is coming to PC in 2019, Mojang announced today during Minecon Earth 2018.
Being developed internally by a “small and dedicated team” within Mojang, the developer describes Minecraft: Dungeons as an “action-adventure game inspired by classic dungeon crawlers.” It’ll support up to four players and feature various new weapons, items, and mobs, as well as a variety of environments to explore and an overarching quest that’ll see players face off against an enemy called the Arch-Illager.
“When I think of Minecraft I think about it as a multiverse,” Jens Bergensten, lead developer at Mojang told IGN. “Dungeons is essentially one Minecraft world with specific areas to go to, specific quests, and specific monsters. That said there are of course procedural elements to the game.”
During today’s stream, the Swedish developer also announced a variety of new Villagers (and Pillagers) are coming to Minecraft in 2019. Additionally, adorable new cats and pandas will also be added “very soon.”
