Microsoft and Mojang Studios today unveiled a new version of classic Minecraft dubbed ‘Minecraft Legends’. The game, which was first announced at Xbox’s Developer Direct back in January this year, is completely different from Minecraft Bedrock Edition, which is already available to players around the world.
In Minecraft Legends, gamers will ‘play as a hero’. “You might think this means you’ll be doing all the fighting, but really: you’ll be doing all the pioneering work,” Microsoft wrote in a blog post. In the game, players must summon new friends and lead them into battle to defeat the furious pigs. Gamers must defend villages, destroy Piglin bases, and push back the Piglins’ corruption. Microsoft says that different allies have different strengths and weaknesses, which when used wisely will give gamers an edge in battle.
“In true Minecraft fashion, you’ll also need to make sure you don’t run out of resources, so you can spawn allies and build defensive or offensive structures,” wrote Microsoft. They play through the campaign as each play creates a unique map.
Minecraft Legends Features
There are three gaming modes in Minecraft Legends. is the first ‘Campaign Mode’, where players can experience the true story of the game. In this mode, gamers must fight to save the overworld solo or in co-op with up to three friends. is the second ‘Co-op Mode’In which users share the same resources with other players, but each player has their own allies to collect and build.
is the third ‘PvP Mode’, in which gamers get to face intense matches with their friends. In public matchmade games, players will be divided into two teams of four players each. “You need to defend your base while coming up with devious plans on how to destroy your enemy! Whichever team is the first to destroy the other’s base wins,” the company explained.
Lost Legends is another way to experience Minecraft Legends. It can be accessed only after the users have completed the campaign. Microsoft says that Lost Legends are essentially monthly challenges that players will be able to download at no extra cost to test their skills in unique scenarios. Like the main game, players can play there in cooperative mode with up to three friends. On winning, they will get a special cosmetic reward for that month.
In addition, Microsoft says that the first Lost Legend is available now.
