Minecraft Dungeons Review
Posted: A year ago, last updated 8 weeks ago.
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.
Players: You can play with 4 players in the same room and up to 4 players online. Cross-Platform: You can play with other people online, on any system, Switch, Xbox, PlayStation and PC. Cloud saves enable you to play on one system, save, and then continue on another system.
