Minecraft Dungeons is a great game to play with friends, but it has been crippled by its lack of cross-play support in the past. Recently, we learned that cross-play was definitely coming to Minecraft Dungeons, and now it’s a reality. The free cross-play update is rolling out today for every platform, connecting everyone through Minecraft Dungeons in a similar way to its older sibling, Minecraft. Once you download the update, you’ll be able to play with friends on Xbox, Windows, Playstation, and Switch, without platform boundaries ruining the fun.
It’s awesome to finally see this update release, and will hopefully make it a lot easier to play with friends in Minecraft Dungeons, which is really where the game shines (playing solo can be a bit dull). However, there’s a second piece of news that’s been brought to light alongside the cross-play update: cross-save support is coming to Minecraft Dungeons. Another weakness of Minecraft Dungeons is how save files can’t be carried across platform lines either, and unfortunately that doesn’t change today.
However, Mojang Studios confirmed that cross-save support is coming to Minecraft Dungeons soon in an free update, but didn’t provide an exact release date. Either way, it’s great to hear that Minecraft Dungeons is finally getting all the multiplayer and platform-agnostic features it likely should have had at launch. If you’re looking for the next injection of content for Minecraft Dungeons, the huge Howling Peaks DLC will arrive later this year.
Want a new way to play Minecraft Dungeons, or are looking for something similar? Minecraft Dungeons is one of the Best Games for Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud) right now, letting you play on the go with an Android mobile device. It also ranks as one of the Best Games for Kids on Xbox, along with a handful of other truly fantastic titles.
Not your average Minecraft
Minecraft explores the dungeons.
Minecraft Dungeons is the next saga in Minecraft’s story, and Mojang Studios have knocked another one out of the park. Awesome co-op combat paired with powerful loot, all at a crazy affordable price? There’s not much more you could ask for in an epic dungeon crawling ARPG.
