Minecraft Devs Talk Minecraft Dungeons Price, Cross-Platform Multiplayer

Mojang unveils Minecraft Dungeons' price and hints at cross-platform multiplayer as a major goal.

As we edge ever closer to the dungeon crawler's nebulous "April 2020" release date, developer Mojang recently published an FAQ covering some interesting tidbits about Minecraft Dungeons, including the game's price.

The standard edition of Minecraft Dungeons will cost $19.99 and the Hero Edition, which includes a Hero Cape, two player skins, and a chicken pet, will cost $29.99. The game will release on the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and it will be available on Xbox Game pass on both PC and Xbox One when it launches. 

Mojang is also preparing two DLC packs for Minecraft Dungeons, and Hero Edition buyers get them free when they launch. Individual prices for the DLC packs were not provided. 

It should come as no surprise that Minecraft Dungeons is all about local co-op and online multiplayer. That begs the question of whether Minecraft Dungeons will be cross-platform, too. According to Mojang, yes — but not initially. 

When Minecraft Dungeons launches, it will only support multiplayer for those playing on the same platform. However, the goal is to introduce cross-platform multiplayer in a free update later.

The full FAQ post is on the Minecraft website.

We're looking forward to Minecraft Dungeons quite a bit, especially after hearing about things like how the team designed the game's soundscapes. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Minecraft Dungeons news as we creep(er) closer to launch.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
