Did you know that new game announcements aren’t done in the weekend? That was almost a rule until a few years ago, but in the news-saturated scenario of today, the gloves are off, especially if your name is Mojang and you have a Minecraft game to reveal.
Today the Microsoft-owned Swedish developer unveiled Minecraft: Dungeons, a full-fledged game inspired by the classic dungeon-crawlers of old, and crafted by a small internal team as a passion project.
This interesting action-adventure game set in the Minecraft universe lets you brave canyons, swamps, and mines while finding loot and killing nasty monsters. You can play solo or in co-op with three others.
Interestingly, the game is slated to release only on PC, and it’ll come in 2019. At the moment no console platforms have been announced, likely due to the small size of the development team. It’ll be interesting to see if more will come down the line considering the popularity of the franchise.
