Minecraft Dungeons Crossplay Lets You Play With Friends Next Week

Minecraft Dungeons Crossplay is set to arrive in mid-November, finally letting PC and console players enjoy the Minecraft-themed action RPG with their friends on other platforms.

The last few weeks have been pretty good for Minecraft Dungeons. The Creeping Winter DLC and physical editions of the game launched and the next piece of DLC was revealed after that. Most interestingly, Mojang confirmed that a Season Pass is on the way, adding four new pieces of DLC to the game in the future. Eventually, Minecraft Dungeons will have the base game and six pieces of DLC — and that assumes that Mojang doesn't make more after the Season Pass is completed. 

Unfortunately, the game has suffered from one minor flaw: it didn't have Crossplay. Players on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch were only able to play with people within their own platform's ecosystem, effectively isolating these four distinct communities from one another. That's all about to change next week!

When is the Minecraft Dungeons Crossplay Release Date?

Minecraft Dungeons Crossplay will arrive on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, finally bringing together all platforms a little less than six months after the game's original launch in May 2020.

"Heroes, are you listening?!" read a tweet from the game's official account. "Cross-platform play arrives on November 17 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows and Xbox One! It’s almost time to join forces – whatever platform you play on!"

With the base game, the Hero Pass, and four more pieces of DLC coming in the Season Pass, it's never been a better time to buy Minecraft Dungeons! You can buy Minecraft Dungeons starting at $19.99 or your regional equivalent via its official website.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
