Announced as part of the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase, Minecraft Legends is a new action strategy game set in the iconic blocky Minecraft world.

In a slightly different vein to that of the creative, sandbox-style of the original Minecraft, new strategy game Minecraft Legends sees players form valuable alliances to protect and defend the Overworld. Players will find themselves faced against the piglins and their Nether corruption, and will be relying on help from Overworld mobs to keep them pushed back. Minecraft developers Mojang have partnered with Blackbird Interactive, a studio with plenty of experience in the real-time strategy department.

Minecraft Legends is set for release in 2023, on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows pc
