Mojang Studios 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. Players control hero characters to defeat enemies with a variety of different weapons, also known as "hack and slash". They make their way through missions, slashing hordes of enemies by aiming and pressing the attack button.


Main article: Story

Heroes fight illagers and other enemies, led by the antagonistic Arch-Illager, to free the villagers from oppression.[1]


Main article: Item

Defeated enemies drop emeralds, experience points and sometimes a piece of equipment. Heroes can equip a weapon, a bow, armor and three artifacts at any one time. Minecraft Dungeons heavily relies on a constant search for new drops that are more powerful than the current equipment.


The game supports multiplayer for up to 4 players at once, you can play either locally or online with friends, you cannot play both online and local multiplayer at the same time.

Local multiplayer uses a dynamic camera, rather than a split-screen, and prevents heroes from getting too far away from each other. Teleporting is disabled.


Main article: Mob

Mobs come in a variety of all shapes and sizes. Most of the mobs are hostile toward the hero. As the game progresses, enemies become bigger and stronger. However, greater items are rewarded to heroes as they equip stronger weapons while fighting stronger enemies.
