I WANT TO BE A PART OF THE MINECRAFT DUNGEONS COMMUNITY, WHERE CAN I FIND YOU AT?
HOW DOES COMBAT WORK?
Combat in Minecraft Dungeons takes place in real-time and places an emphasis on weapons, gear, and enchantments. We were very careful in tuning items in the game to accommodate unique fighting styles, with this flexibility being especially rewarding in co-op multiplayer. A wide variety of weapons can be customized with unique enchantments that are an asset in battle.
CAN CHARACTERS BE CUSTOMIZED?
There are no character classes in Minecraft Dungeons – your power and abilities are based entirely on what you have equipped at any given moment. Players are also able to select their appearance from a diverse range of skins.
ARE THERE NEW MOBS IN MINECRAFT DUNGEONS?
There are a variety of brand-new mobs that are part of the Minecraft Dungeons narrative. The Key Golem is a cute little critter that helps open locked doors while making funny noises, that are sure to delight. Those visiting the Fiery Forge will encounter the epic boss-like Redstone Monstrosity. There are many more unrevealed mobs to discover, in addition to a lot of mobs you already know and love like Creepers and Endermen.
DO MISSIONS CHANGE FROM ONE GAME TO THE NEXT?
Yes! Each mission in Minecraft Dungeons is a mix of procedural content and carefully crafted elements that tie into the mission's objectives and narrative. In other words, while parts of the mission stay the same, the paths, mobs and treasure you find will be different every time you play it.
IS THERE ANYTHING TO DO AFTER BEATING THE GAME?
With its randomly generated levels and a plethora of items to equip, we’ve strived to create an experience that players will continue to come back to time and time again. Players can team up and return to levels at higher difficulties to uncover new items and rewards, with more surprises coming post-launch.
IS THERE MOD SUPPORT?
There are currently no plans for mod support.
WILL THERE BE ONLINE MATCHMAKING?
No. Minecraft Dungeons is designed to be played together with your friends – either on a comfy couch or in a comfy online session.
WILL THERE BE A BETA FOR MINECRAFT DUNGEONS?
We’re hosting a very limited closed beta for some players on PC. This is a technical beta that includes a small sample of content from the full version of Minecraft Dungeons and is aimed towards testing online gameplay.
Participants were chosen at random from those who previously signed up on minecraft.net. Those chosen will have received an invite at the email address used during signup. Additional participants will not be added to the closed beta at this time.
WHAT CONTENT IS AVAILABLE DURING BETA?
Players are able to check out the first few levels of the game with a group of friends in a multiplayer setting. The levels are procedurally generated so every playthrough will have a different layout, mob encounters, and loot drops.
WILL I KEEP MY PROGRESS AFTER THE BETA?
Any progress made won’t carry over to the full game. This means that you’ll lose access to any items, missions, or other progress you’ve made during the closed beta period.
HOW DO I PLAY WITH MY FRIENDS?
Before playing with your friends, make sure you’re logged into your Microsoft account and that you know your friend’s gamertag. Gamertags can be found at the top right of the Xbox account page next to the profile icon.
To log in to, or create an Xbox account, please visit account.xbox.com. Once you’ve logged in, you can add your friend’s gamertag to play with through the website. Both players need to add each other in order to play together.
THE GAME DOESN’T START - WHAT CAN I DO?
- Ensure your PC meets the Minimum Requirements.
- Ensure your PC has the latest Windows updates.
- Update graphics drivers for NVIDIA or AMD graphics cards.
- Though they’re installed along with the game, make sure you have installed the software dependencies for the game:
WHY DOES MINECRAFT DUNGEONS HAVE ITS OWN LAUNCHER?
Unfortunately, you can't start Minecraft Dungeons directly from the Minecraft Launcher because Minecraft: Java Edition and Minecraft Dungeons use different account systems.
Minecraft Dungeons is using Microsoft Accounts and Minecraft Java Edition is using Mojang accounts. We have twisted and turned many options to give our players the right experience and decided that a good temporary option is to have one dedicated launcher per game. Therefore, you need the Minecraft Dungeons Launcher to be able to play the game.
WHEN WILL THE BETA END?
The closed beta is currently planned for a 2-3 week period.
