Minecraft Dungeons: How to Pre-Load for Xbox - Release Date, Trailer, Pre-Order & More

We've seen Minecraft evolve an awful lot since it's inception in 2009, but the next chapter in the series is set to steer the iconic franchise in a brand new direction!

Minecraft Dungeons will play like an isometric hack and slash game, and rest assured that it still features Minecraft’s iconic aesthetic.

For those who haven't heard about the next title, it takes influence from established titles like Diablo, but it will undoubtedly set itself apart from the game.

Pre-load was recently made available for PC users, so when will it be available on Xbox?

It is a Microsoft IP after all.
