Minecraft Dungeons, the block builder’s iconic dungeon-crawling spin-off, has been out in the wild for over a year now, launching in May last year. But, it hasn’t arrived on any of the biggest PC platforms yet, although that’s about to change – Minecraft Dungeons is heading to Steam next month.
Earlier this week, some eagle-eyed fans spotted that a store page for the cubic action-RPG had popped up on Valve’s platform, though it didn’t give – and won’t. still only gives an expected release window of “September 2021”. However, Mojang has now revealed with a Steam release trailer (below) that the big day is set for September 22, so you have less than a month to wait for Minecraft Dungeons to debut on the platform if this is where you are keen to play it.
Additionally, the trailer’s description reveals that fans who purchase the Ultimate Edition of the game on Steam will have access to freebies, “like soundtracks and digital artwork.” The Ultimate Edition includes the game’s six DLC packs as well as the base game.
If you haven’t given the game a boost yet, Minecraft Dungeons essentially takes the whimsical, blocky essence of Minecraft into a dungeon crawler. Players must tackle procedurally generated and manually crafted dungeons filled with monsters, traps, and puzzles to overcome, as well as plenty of loot to find. It plays from an isometric perspective and has classless gameplay, so you can use whatever weapons and kit you find however you want.
In our Minecraft Dungeons review, our own Ben Maxwell gave it a seven out of ten, calling it “a stripped-down Diablo that’s brimming with charm and loot variety but probably better suited to younger audiences.”
