    Allegedly release date is April 30, 2020.

    https://www.trueachievements.com/n41079/minecraft-dungeons-release-date

    The store pages don't give away much else as of yet, with no pricing. However, there is an entry for both a Windows 10 and an Xbox version of the game. The page confirms that there will be Xbox cross-platform multiplayer, and will support 4K Ultra HD.​

    I think I might actually play this. I've tried Minecraft & every time I don't understand the appeal, but this looks cool.

    BTW, if you didn't get into Minecraft Story Mode before they delisted it, you can now "play" it on Netflix. It's interactive like the Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.

    by multiplatform do you mean it is going to be released on the Playstation for instance?

    This could well be my favourite Minecraft game to date, 'cos I have the X360 version and never been a fan. But this one, being a hack 'n slash with gameplay mechanics like Diablo looks quite promising, and fun.

    Minecraft Dungeons on OneX showed notification that it's ready to start. Is this just a teaser? Or did someone forget to change the date from April 30th?

    Any first impressions on Minecraft Dungeons now that it's out? Too old to stay up last night to play. LOL

    Only watched one review so far. Apparently it's very short, 9 missions and a few hours. No idea of the longevity of the game.

    Leaks have shown there are at least 2 DLCs coming. Spoilers be there, so be warned.

    Needs some Minecraft Killer Instinct characters. :p

    ----

    Played a couple missions past the tutorial - pretty straightforward action rpg. Interface seems simple enough for the moment.

    No crossplay yet, but it's in the pipe.

    Tried it briefly on my laptop (Iris 620 Pro), and it has microstutters and the frame limiter isn't very solid (sometimes goes a frame above or below).

    No Cortana or Chief? LOL

    Cool. Big no alarms going off is good.

    I don't know these things. So I should be good. LOL

    hm... seems like item enchantments (you get a point to spend when you level-up) are tied to the specific items and don't seem to carry over to new items. :???:

    e.g. just got a new sword and the enchantment I applied to the default weapon didn't carry over.

    You can salvage your previous weapon/armor to reclaim those enchantment points back, but once you do you lose that weapon/armor. :/
