Minecraft Dungeons is now out!.

Coronavirus caused a small delay pushing the game from April into May, but that hasn't stopped the excitement.

Players will be fighting all kinds of mobs, making new classes, choosing weapons and enchantments, and fighting tough bosses.

Is Minecraft Dungeons free for Minecraft owners?

The short answer is no.

Having a copy of Mojang's original Minecraft game will not allow you to play Minecraft Dungeons for free.

HORDE: Good luck taking this one down!

However, this isn't the end of the world. The new adventure is extremely affordable, and given the global lockdown is coming out at the perfect time!

Minecraft Dungeons price

Like the normal Minecraft, Dungeons will be available on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. Whatever hardware you normally game on, it will probably be available.

The game costs £16.74 on Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch and is a smidge cheaper on PS4 at £15.99.

Xbox One and PC players can get the Hero Edition, which gives them a few extras right away as well as access to later DLCs.

That will cost £24.99 ($29.99), whilst PlayStation players can acquire the Heros Pass for £9.49.


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

It incorporates armours, weapons, artefacts, enchantments, mobs, bosses and plenty 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 some allies ready to experience the game with you.

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