What is Minecraft Legends?
The upcoming game from Mojang and Blackbird Interactive was first announced at the Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022. According to the devs, Minecraft Legends is going to be a real-time strategy game that incorporates Player vs Player (PvP) elements.
Following the showcase from Xbox and Bethesda, we’ve gotten a better look at what to expect in Minecraft Legends. Along with the gameplay reveal, eager fans were also in for a treat as the game’s release date was also announced.
- In the gameplay trailer, we saw Minecraft Legends in action. There is a mode available where two teams of four go head-to-head against each other in battle. The main goal of both teams is to be the first to destroy the other teams’ “base” or defenses.
- Teams must work together in order to fight off both the other team and various enemies, including Piglins. These creatures will attack both sides, so you need to be prepared in case a wave of Piglins comes knocking on your doors.
- Players share their resources, including troops, with their teammates. It will really be a collective effort in order to fight off the forces trying to invade and destroy your base. Strategy is the key to winning battles in Minecraft Legends, so rally up your best troops!
- Aside from multiplayer, there is also a single-player campaign. Your main enemies here are the Piglins. On the other hand, they will also cause chaos and disruption in multiplayer games.
