Minecraft devs talk Minecraft Dungeons price, cross-platform multiplayer

As we inch ever closer to the dungeon crawler’s nebulous “April 2020” release date, developer Mojang recently posted an FAQ covering some interesting information about Minecraft Dungeonsincluding the price of the game.

The standard edition of Minecraft Dungeons will cost $19.99, and the Hero Edition, which includes a hero cape, two-player skins, and a chicken, will cost $29.99. The game will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and it will be available on Xbox Game Pass on PC and Xbox One when it launches.

Mojang is also preparing two DLC packs for Minecraft Dungeons, and Hero Edition buyers get them for free when they launch. Individual DLC pack prices were not provided.

It should not be surprising that Minecraft Dungeons is all about local co-op and online multiplayer. This raises the question of whether Minecraft Dungeons will also be cross-platform. According to Mojang, yes – but not initially.

When Minecraft Dungeons launches, it will only support multiplayer for those playing on the same platform. However, the plan is to introduce cross-platform multiplayer later in a free update.

The full FAQ post is on the Minecraft website.

We look forward to Minecraft Dungeons a bit, especially after hearing about things like how the team designed the game’s soundscapes. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Minecraft Dungeons news as we get(er) closer to launch.
