“Minecraft Dungeons” is postponed to May 26

Minecraft Dungeons is on its way to consoles and PC, albeit a bit later than expected. Mojang says the Minecraft The Dungeon-Crawler spin-off will be released on May 26 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation 4 and, as revealed during last week’s surprise Direct, Nintendo Switch.

The Microsoft-owned studio originally planned to release Minecraft Dungeons in April, but he said that due to coronavirus concerns, “this is no longer possible. [We] wanted to ensure the health and safety of our teams and empower them to provide the best possible experience to you, our players.”

Mojang also teased more details about the game, including that it will add a cross-platform multiplayer option through an upcoming patch. You’ll be able to team up with up to three other players in local and online co-op modes. Missions use a mix of procedurally generated and fixed elements to keep things fresh every time you play while ensuring that the narrative and objectives remain intact.

Minecraft Dungeons will be available in two versions. Along with the $20 standard edition, there’s a $30 hero edition that includes cosmetic items and access to a pair of DLC packs along the way.
