With Mojang wrapping up work on Minecraft Dungeons, the studio has turned its attention to a new spin-off game. Minecraft Legends will be releasing next year as an all-new action strategy game developed in partnership with Blackbird Interactive.
In Minecraft Legends, players will discover a full of lush biomes and rich resources. But this beautiful land is on the brink of terrible change – the piglin invasion has begun and threatens to corrupt the Overworld. It's up to the player to make unexpected friends (including some classic mobs you’ll recognise from Minecraft) to form valuable alliances and lead the way into strategic battles against the fierce invaders from the Nether.
Minecraft Legends will have its own full campaign, containing “many surprises” for both newcomers and Minecraft veterans alike. The game will also feature online co-op as well as competitive multiplayer.
The game doesn't have an exact release date just yet, it is planned for 2023. Like many other games shown during the showcase today, this game should be coming in the first half of next year.
