Developer Mojang went in-depth on the upcoming online PvP mode for the upcoming Minecraft Legends. The developers also announced the release date which will be April 18, 2023.
Minecraft Legends is an action strategy spinoff of Mojang’s popular open-world crafting-survival game. A core part of the experience is the online PvP mode which Mojang detailed today during the Xbox Developer Direct.
Like the world of Minecraft itself, the PvP mode will be procedurally generated, meaning the world where players face off against each other will be random and different every time you play.
While the core gameplay seems to revolve around two teams of players invading each other’s camps, Minecraft Legends appears to be encouraging a wide range of playstyles depending on player preference.
Players who want to play on the offensive can take the fight and siege the enemy base or attack Piglins. Players who want to explore can scavenge for resources, and secrets, or scout out enemy bases.
Finally, players who like building can build complex, Minecraft-style bases and armaments to defend against enemies.
