Dungeon Crawler based on Minecraft will be released on the popular storefront
Minecraft Dungeons, the ARPG dungeon crawler set in the Minecraft universe, is finally coming to Steam on September 22. Previously only accessible through Mojang’s launcher or the Microsoft Store, you’ll be able to purchase the game on Steam next month.
When the game releases on the popular digital storefront, there will be two purchase options. You can either buy the base game for $20 or the Ultimate Edition for $40. The Ultimate Edition will include all six DLCs along with some minor cosmetic items and digital goodies from the soundtrack and artwork. There will also be the “Minecraft Dungeons: Ultimate DLC Bundle” upgrade option for $20.
Minecraft Dungeons was first released in May 2020 as an isometric hack and slash dungeon crawler – like an accessible child version of Diablo. Unlike its main inspiration, there’s no mining or crafting – just pure combat with pre-created weapons and items. For example, there is a diamond sword in Minecraft Dungeons, but you must acquire it as world loot or by purchasing it from a merchant, rather than mining two diamonds and crafting the sword. Also, instead of being an open world, the game is a linear story-based game with a campaign.
Since the game’s initial release, six DLCs have been added, allowing the player to fight in different environments such as the Nether or the Jungle biome. In addition to the digital release on Steam, there will also be a physical release of the Ultimate Edition for $40 in retail stores. The Steam version adds the ability to support Steam Workshop as well as Steam Link support.
