What is Minecraft Dungeons About?

Minecraft Dungeons Review – Trailer

Minecraft Dungeons is an action RPG / dungeon crawler spin-off of Minecraft. It is set in the same universe as the original game with its signature blocky visuals representing living beings and the environment. In this particular game, there is a proper, linear storyline for its campaign along with cutscenes to help push the narrative.

Once upon a time, a homeless “Illager” named Archie was rejected by everyone he met. Then, he finds a mysterious artifact called the Orb of Dominance, which corrupts him but also gave him powers. From that point on, he takes on the identity of “Arch-Illager”, with a mission of vengeance against those that wronged him, wreaking chaos all over the world, and turning villagers into his slaves.

Players will explore procedurally-generated dungeons in the map to fight all sorts of evil in a variety of environments. The ultimate goal here is to subdue the Arch-Illager, destroy the Orb of Dominance, and save the world. It will be a treacherous journey, but you can play with up to 4 players in either local or online co-op multiplayer.
