Minecraft: Dungeons! Announced

The 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 look, showing off the high poly count models and detailed textures you'd expect from this (we kid, of course, it's voxels all the way). Here's word:

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 game! Minecraft: Dungeons is being created by a small and dedicated team in Stockholm, Sweden. This has been a passion project for them, and is inspired by their love of classic dungeon crawler games.

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 Arch-Illager!

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!

Look, here they are, spilling them!
