The Minecraft IP continues to grow with more games, as Minecraft Legends has been revealed at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase for 2022. Minecraft Legends looks to take the world of Mojang's sandbox builder and put it into a third-person real-time strategy experience where you must unite the Overworld against the forces of the Nether. So for players looking forward to the idea of a Minecraft RTS, here's everything we know about the release date, trailers, gameplay, and more. 

Minecraft Legends Release Date

We currently only have a release window of 2023 for the title, but considering all of the game's shown at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase are set to release before June 2023, we can expect to see it during the first half of the year. We'll make sure to update this once we get a concrete release date. 

Minecraft Legends Trailers

The game's reveal trailer came at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase for 2022, which was part CGI and part gameplay. The trailer started with a cinematic of some villagers in a scenic grassland village, before suddenly a dark fog begins to wash over the area and a Nether gate opens. This causes lava pools to begin to form as a legion of piglin enemies come rushing out of the portal to attack the village. 

 

The trailer then shows an unnamed character on a horse riding through multiple biomes and leading some Overworld enemies like creepers, zombies, and skeletons toward the Nether portal. After this, the trailer cuts into some gameplay, as we see a character on a horse doing some exploration, building, rallying troops, and taking part in combat. 

Minecraft Legends Gameplay

Minecraft Legends Gameplay

Specific details on how the game will play are currently sparse, so we only have the reveal trailer to go off. However, the gameplay portion of the trailer seemed to illuminate some features that will set Minecraft Legends apart from other RTS games. 

The trailer describes it as an action strategy game, which aligns with the rumours from before the reveal that the game would be a real-time strategy. While that genre may conjure images of titles like StarCraft with its top-down perspective, Minecraft Legends appears to have a third-person camera, putting you right into the action with the rest of your troops. 

Minecraft Legends Gameplay rallying

It seems like the player will be able to control the leader of the Overworld army (your character) and personally lead troops with commands, which we see an example of when they wave a flag and some mobs follow. 

Minecraft Legends Gameplay building

It's fair to say the biggest aspect of Minecraft is the building, and RTS games are no stranger to construction, with them often focusing on getting resources to create more buildings that provide benefits and produce more troops for battles. The trailer showcased some building, but it seemed more in line with Minecraft, allowing the player to create their own structures which followers build for you. We don't know yet if these are premade or if there is freedom to what kind of structures you can build, but it would seem like a waste to prohibit the player from getting creative in a Minecraft game. 

Minecraft Legends Platforms 

Minecraft Legends is set to come to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Nintendo Switch. It will also be released on day one for the Xbox Game Pass.
