Minecraft Website announces Minecraft: Dungeons!, an action/adventure Mojang
says is inspired by classic dungeon-crawlers. This is coming to PCs next year,
and they offer this trailer with a

NEW GAME ALERT! NEW GAME ALERT! NEW GAME ALERT! Ring the good news bell!
Blast the joy klaxon! Detonate the announcement Creeper!
Got your attention? Oh, good! Because today, we’re introducing Minecraft:
Dungeons – a brand new game from Mojang!
Can you tell we’re excited? Well, it’s not every day we get to announce a new

Stockholm, Sweden. This has been a passion project for them, and is inspired by

But let’s get specific! What exactly is Minecraft: Dungeons? It’s an all-new
action-adventure game inspired by classic dungeon crawlers, where you’ll
constantly discover new weapons and items that will help you defeat a ruthless
swarm of new-and-nasty mobs. You’ll fight or flee through canyons, swamps and –
of course – mines!
You can brave the dungeons alone, or team up with friends. Up to four players
can battle together through action-packed, treasure-stuffed, wildly varied
levels, all in an epic quest to save the villagers and take down the evil
But as the old saying goes 'one announcement trailer says more than a rambling
blog post ever could'. So without further preamble, here's that trailer:
As a game developer, when you’re carefully crafting something like Minecraft
Dungeons, you’re pouring your heart and soul into something you’re really proud
of… which you can’t tell a living soul about! In other words, these poor devs
have been sworn to ABSOLUTE SECRECY for a long, long, time. But now they can
finally spill the beans!
