Minecraft Legends release date – everything you need to know

The Minecraft Legends release date is nearly upon us, so, here’s everything you need to know about this block-building survival game.

Minecraft Legends sets out to be a different take on the much-loved franchise. This edition will feature more action/adventure aspects as well as strategy. Players must stop the Piglins from attacking nearby villages by uniting them, building fortifications and stopping them from taking over the world.

As mentioned, Minecraft Legends plays a bit differently to previous titles in the franchise. Players will begin on a generated map filled with resources. It is then your job to order allies to begin harvesting and constructing in order to keep the enemies at bay. Additionally, you will be able to survey the area via a mount. 

Furthermore, the game will offer a PvP mode. Each map will get a blue team and an orange team (each including up to four players each). The match begins as both teams harvest resources and build structures and ends when one team successfully destroys the other’s base. 


Although there are only currently two trailers for Minecraft Legends, they are definitely worth the watch! The announcement trailer was released back in June 2022 which shows “a paradise on the brink of destruction.”

The second trailer was released in August and features the game’s pesky enemies, the Piglins. You can watch them both below!
