The first game to come up during the January 2023 Xbox and Bethesda Developer_Direct was Minecraft Legends. This is the action-strategy game for groups of players to play together to face off against other players’ team in a changing world. Your goal is to strategically build up a base and strengthen your team, while also going up against the other players with mobs you recruited. This portion of the presentation ended by revealing Minecraft Legends release date is April 18, 2023.
You can watch the new Minecraft Legends footage at the very beginning of the showcase below.
There’s also a new gameplay trailer.
Back in June 2022, Microsoft offered another look at this Minecraft spin-off. That offered a better idea of what went into creating this new game.
Minecraft Legends offers PVP for up to four people and cross-platform play in a procedurally generated world. You share an army and resources with other players. This means people can be building or gathering, as well as fighting. Also, throughout the game someone will be facing both the other players’ team and the Piglins.
The Minecraft Legends release date is April 18, 2023. It will come to the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. It will also be a part of Xbox Game Pass at launch.
