Minecraft Dungeons is part RGP, part block-builder
Minecraft Dungeons has finally arrived, which is fantastic news for those locked-away in self-isolation.
The new expansion to the Minecraft saga puts you and three other friends inside a dungeon. It’s less block-builder, and more action role-playing game (a bit like Diablo, but with more blocks).
Like the original game, Minecraft Dungeons is suitable for all players and age-groups. Although, while Dungeons is a new take on the game that first launched back in 2009, some familiar elements are still present: you’ll be defeating enemies, discovering loot and exploring and upgrading your character.
Because it is a combat-focussed game, Dungeons is actually a tad more streamlined than its builder counterpart.
Dungeons is a lot more simple than your traditional RPG, which will be painful for die-hard gamers but more accessible to the casual crowd. Inventory management is very simple, and players aren’t even locked in to set character abilities – powers and skills revolve around the equipment you pick up during your adventure.
Dungeons is out right now on PC, Xbox and PS4.
