When Minecraft Dungeons was revealed to follow in the same vein as its mainstream sibling in being cross-platform, the lack of cross-play at launch was a notable weakness of the game.

The update will be free for all players and may contain other general bug fixes and improvements, as well as adding cross-play support. The game will likely follow Minecraft using your Microsoft account for cross-play, but details are not yet known.
