Minecraft is a game that doesn't get old like so many others. If anything, it ages like a fine wine.

There's good news on the horizon for Minecraft Dungeons as well. An update will be coming to all versions of the game which will allow players of any console to play with each other.

Linking All Four Major Consoles

As is usually the case these days, Minecraft Dungeon's official Twitter made this announcement. For the first time ever, Minecraft gamers on PS4 and Xbox One will now be able to interact, explore and build together.

It also means that those on Nintendo Switch and PC will be able to play with each other, linking all four major consoles. The Bedrock edition of the game already had this feature, but Dungeons also getting it enabled is huge.

The timing of this announcement means that crossplay will be fully enabled before the Howling Peaks DLC is released for Dungeons in December.

Why Crossplay is Huge

Crossplay will make a massive difference to the Minecraft experience, as what makes the game so special is playing it with friends. Now, no matter which console your friend is playing Dungeons on, you will be able to play with them.

BETTER WITH FRIENDS: Minecraft can be fun by yourself, but is better enjoyed with others

Minecraft itself has had crossplay before with its Java and Bedrock editions, the latter having the same coverage as this update.


A larger pool of players to fill up online lobbies is great for Dungeons too, as it will elongate the life of the game. Not that it needed help in this department though, the series is going very strong.

Crossplay is something that was little more than a pipe dream a few years ago. The list of games which now have it though is very extensive and growing all the time.

With next-gen just round the corner too, cross-saves are starting to enter the fold. Again, this is something that was laughed off as a possibility a few years ago.

Release Date

Crossplay across Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC will be coming to Minecraft Dungeons players on 17 November.
