Game of the Month: Minecraft Dungeons

You have never played Minecraft like this before

In the new Minecraft Dungeons you and your friends take on the role of heroes in a new action adventure unlike anything you’ve seen before in the Minecraft world.

Fight your way through the different levels, with up to four simultaneous players, to finally face the evil Arch-Illager.

Minecraft Dungeons is shown from a third-person view like the Diablo series, but there are no classes. Instead, you can customise your character and create your own playing style by choosing from the many items in the game.

The gaming world extends both above ground and down into the deepest of caves. Explore temples, battle your way through foggy forests in the moonlight and meet all the monsters you know from the original Minecraft.

Minecraft Dungeons are available in two versions - Standard Edition and Hero Edition:

  • Minecraft Dungeons - Standard Edition
  • Minecraft Dungeons - Hero Edition

What sets the two versions apart is that the Hero Edition includes two additional player skins, the Hero Cape object and a chicken as a pet in the game. The Hero Edition also includes the first two DLC additions free of charge when released.

Minecraft Dungeons: Jungle Awakens

The first official expansion to Minecraft Dungeons is named Jungle Awakens, with a release date sometime in July this year.

The expansion has three new missions and many new armours, weapons and artefacts to find. Just as the name indicates, Jungle Awakens takes part in a whole new jungle environment.

The second expansion is Creeping Winter with vast, frozen landscapes for Minecraft Dungeons. A complete opposite to the warm and green Jungle Awakens.

There are not many details on Creeping Winter yet and no release date. All we know is that the expansion will be released sometime during 2020.

Notable game launches in June

Command & Conquer Remastered Collection

The classic games Command & Conquer and Red Alert have been reworked with new graphics, a modern interface and a multiplayer mode. Both games have been adapted for modern computers and support up to 4K resolution. Even the music has been improved and you can seamlessly switch between the new and old graphics whenever you want. On 5 June, you can take control of your troops on PC.

The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds is a sci-fi RPG from the creators of Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity. The simplest explanation is that the game can be described as a Fallout in space. Develop your character with new skills, take part in endless discussions with lots of other game characters, and create your own path to reach the end goal. The Outer Worlds already exists for PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. Now the game has finally been released for Switch.

The long-awaited sequel to the acclaimed The Last of Us will be released on 19 June. The game starts five years after the events of the first game and 25 years after the first infected hit the world. In The Last of Us Part II, we once again follow the main characters Joel and Ellie from the first game, on a new, exciting journey. Take part in new environments in a whole new story of revenge and survival in an apocalyptic United States.
