Minecraft Dungeons brings a whole new experience to the Minecraft world as a dungeon crawler.

It incorporates armor, weapons, artifacts, enchantments, mobs, bosses, and more into an action-adventure unlike anything Mojang has done so far.

The game is best spent with friends and isn’t heavy on replayability, so make sure you have allies willing to experience the game with you.

And with no predefined classes, be sure to experiment with all the different ways to play this game. You might find a home in some of the more traditional dungeon crawler classes like rangers, mages, rogues, and more.
