OverviewOverview

Minecraft Dungeons is an action-adventure game that takes place in the Minecraft universe. You explore various dungeons to complete missions and collect new gear by exploring and finding treasure chests, or by defeating enemies. You can use this gear to defeat enemies who are stronger and challenge harder dungeons, which will then provide better gear for you.

Minecraft Dungeons also thrives as a cooperative experience for up to four players. Its variety in gear allows players to each have a unique purpose within the group. One player may be good at defeating enemies quickly, while another player can make the enemies weaker. When each person has a role within the group it encourages sharing gear so that the team may be the best it can be.
