Minecraft: Dungeons Is a Brand-New Game Coming From Mojang in 2019

Inspired by classic dungeon crawlers, this new Minecraft experience is only announced for PC at the moment.

Minecon Earth 2018 was host to numerous Minecraft announcements over the weekend, including the introduction of pandas to the game next year, but a brand-new game was also revealed. Minecraft: Dungeons is coming to PC in 2019 and it's been inspired by the classic dungeon crawlers you know and love.

Minecraft: Dungeons is being created by what Mojang is calling a "small and dedicated team in Stockholm, Sweden". It is an all-new game, rather than a new mode in Minecraft, in which you will find new weapons and items, take on swarms of enemies, and make your way through environments such as canyons, swamps, and mines.

For the time being Minecraft: Dungeons is only confirmed for PC (there's been no word on a console release coming after the game's debut), but there is support for up to four players to take on foes together as they work towards beating the Arch-Illager. You can see the reveal trailer for Minecraft: Dungeons just below:

There's not much else to say about Minecraft: Dungeons. We'll bring you more info as and when Mojang reveals more. Until then, here's a picture of those pandas.

Audience Development Manager, Gamer Network

Tom started life on a circus in Australia before his family moved to the UK. His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
