We are approaching the first anniversary of Minecraft Dungeons, the action-RPG spin-off of Minecraft. During this time, Minecraft Dungeons received several updates and DLCs, culminating with the recent (and massive) Flames of the Nether DLC, to add new features and significantly improve the game over time. One thing that’s been sorely missing since launch, however, is cross-save support. After nearly 12 months of waiting (nearly 6 months after Minecraft Dungeons officially added cross-play support and promised cross-save, we are finally getting cross-save support in Minecraft Dungeons.
Today, Mojang Studios and Double Eleven are finally rolling out the update that officially enables cloud-powered cross-saves in Minecraft Dungeons at some point today. Powered by the same Microsoft account you use to enjoy cross-play to join your friends, cross-saves allow you to transport your characters and all of their progress across all Minecraft Dungeons platforms is available. Yes, this includes Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, PS5, PS4, PC and Switch. However, this does not include purchases, such as the Minecraft Dungeons Season Pass.
Minecraft Dungeons players have been waiting a long time for cross-save support to arrive, and at times the omission has been frustrating. We discussed this and more in our overview of Mojang Studios and how it sometimes feels like an underfunded indie studio.
Now, with cross-save support, Minecraft Dungeons fully feels like the game it could have been at launch. With all the post-launch support the game has received, it’s absolutely one of the best games on Xbox and one of the best games on Xbox Game Pass. If you haven’t checked out Mojang Studios’ experimental Minecraft franchise expansion yet, it’s definitely worth checking out. Now, with cross-save, you can worry even less about losing some of your progress if you’re playing on multiple platforms.
Cross-save support comes in Minecraft Dungeons Patch Update 22.214.171.124, which also includes a small handful of other bug fixes and tweaks. The full changelog for Minecraft Dungeons 126.96.36.199 includes:
