Xbox Game Pass Adds Minecraft Dungeons

Minecraft Dungeons, recently released on PC and Xbox, but more importantly, it released as part of Xbox Game Pass. This means all Xbox Game Pass subscribers can play the brand new Minecraft experience for free, regardless of the platform. Since the game is also owned by Microsoft, its safe to assume that this title will stay in the Game Pass library indefinitely.

For those who don't have the Game Pass subscription, you can buy the game standalone for $20. As for the game itself, it's a different take on the Minecraft formula, inspired by classic dungeon crawlers like Diablo. Something far different than what the series is about. The game isn't just available on PC and Xbox though, you can purchase the title on PS4 and the Switch.

Fight your way through an all-new action-adventure game, inspired by classic dungeon crawlers and set in the Minecraft universe," reads an official pitch of the game. "Brave the dungeons alone, or team up with friends! Up to four players can battle together through action-packed, treasure-stuffed, wildly varied levels – all in an epic quest to save the villagers and take down the evil Arch-Illager!

Minecraft Dungeons releases soon to move the Minecraft franchise in a creative direction by sending players on a Diablo-style adventure full of loot, missions, and perilous dungeons to explore," reads the opening of our official impressions of the game. "It’s a big departure from the traditional Minecraft formula where you build as much as you can and try and survive the night until you’re ready to build again, and in many ways, it works well. It’s the perfect introduction to this type of game which might not satisfy those looking for more challenging dungeon crawls, but it feels like a worthwhile venture for anyone who’s interested and is made far better with companions.
