A massive Dungeons & Dragons crossover is headed to Minecraft, developer Mojang announced on Tuesday during the D&D Direct showcase. The announcement came alongside a new trailer that offers a look at what the upcoming expansion has in store.
Minecraft x D&D Trailer
Minecraft D&D will be a separate mode from the main game where players will create their character and complete quests for various NPCs while exploring the Forgotten Realms. The DLC features four character classes to choose from: barbarian, paladin, rogue, and wizard, each with unique abilities that players can deploy during combat. Based on the trailer, the mode also has plenty of iconic D&D monsters to slay, including beholders, mimics, and gold dragons.
While we don’t know the exact release date for the Minecraft D&D crossover DLC just yet, the expansion is on its way soon and is expected to arrive sometime this spring.
