The first stand-alone game developed by Mojang and set in the Minecraft universe since… well, Minecraft!

Mojang on the gameplay of Minecraft Dungeons

This is the page concerning information regarding the gameplay of Minecraft Dungeons.


The game is an action/adventure RPG.


Worlds are procedurally generated. World Seeds are being considered. There is a "Hub World".[1] Levels take place both above and below ground.[2]

The first level you play is called the Creeper Woods. There are other levels as well, the order of which is unknown: The Fiery Forge and the Desert Temple.


Not much is known about the plot, due to the game not being released yet. What is known is that players will fight illagers and other enemies, led by the antagonistic Arch-Illager, to free the villagers from oppression.[2]


The game was originally going to a small single-player campaign, but the development team thought they were "onto something so fun" that they decided to expand it to include up to four players. It can still be played as the single-player campaign, if wanted.[1]


Even though the trailer suggests that players are constrained to a single class, that is not the case. Players can pick up different weapons and armor, enchant them, and then equip them to choose a different class[2].
