The new action-strategy spin-off Minecraft Legends is finally available on Xbox platforms and on PC, PlayStation, and Switch.
In case you missed its reveal, Minecraft Legends is a new action strategy game developed by Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive. Here, players can explore various biomes with rich resources, but instead of survival, the goal is to lead allies in strategic battles to save the Overworld from the Piglin invasion.
The game’s premise is described as:
Minecraft Legends is the new action strategy game we made in partnership with Blackbird Interactive where you play as the brave hero who unites the inhabitants of the Overworld to fight off a devastating piglin invasion. Nether portals have appeared all over the once-peaceful Overworld, bringing piglins and spreading netherrack, and it’s up to you to lead the charge and destroy them before the corruption covers everything! In this game, mobs that you would typically fight or avoid in the original Minecraft will become your friends and fight alongside you. The story of Minecraft Legends is one that’s been passed down through time in the Overworld, so who’s to say whether it’s real or not? The truth is nobody can, so it’s up to you to discover it and craft your own theories!
Minecraft Legends is now available on all Xbox platforms, including Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Xbox Game Pass for console and PC. The game is also available as a standalone purchase on PC via Steam or the Windows Store, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5. Plus, the game is also available through the Gaming Hub on Samsung Smart TVs.
As a bonus, the game features cross-platform multiplayer across all platforms at launch.
