A new trailer for Minecraft Legends has information on player-versus-player battles. Developers have revealed additional information on how to win against other players online.
- The next Minecraft strategy game, Minecraft Legends, is a collaboration between Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive.
- Teams have detailed some of the aspects of Minecraft Legends’ player-against-player combat, including the special characteristics that make team battles so exciting.
- For the time being, the release of Minecraft: Legends is penciled in for the spring of 2023.
In the upcoming Minecraft spinoff strategy game, gamers will compete for head to head in team battles.
On Friday, Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive detailed Minecraft Legends’ player-against-player (PvP) combat.
Although player-versus-player (PvP) combat had previously been established, the mechanisms underlying it were unclear.
The developers claim that in PvP, players are split into two opposing teams, blue and orange, with the goal of destroying the other team’s base by amassing stronger structures and units over time.
“We didn’t want to just take the Minecraft IP and plaster it on a typical RTS,” says Pete Gahn, director of games at Blackbird Interactive. As the developers put it, “we wanted to actually design something that felt like a Minecraft strategy game as opposed to just a strategy game with Creepers in it.”
At Minecraft Live 2022, the development team showed off Minecraft Legends’ gameplay and discussed the game’s post-launch support, which will be unique from that of other Minecraft games like Minecraft Dungeons.
There is no confirmed release date for Minecraft Legends just yet, but it is expected to be out sometime in the Spring of 2023.
It will be released for the Xbox One X, Xbox One S, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Switch.
It will also be accessible through Xbox Game Pass from the get-go, much like every other Xbox first-party game.
