Not one to rest on its laurels, Mojang is continuously looking to one-up itself by introducing new features for Minecraft, and it looks like Dungeons has received a cool new, free update.
Crossplay has been in huge demand across the board for most major online multiplayer titles, including Minecraft Dungeons. Essentially, crossplay refers to a couple of things having to do with playing a game (say Minecraft Dungeons) with friends and other players across different platforms.
In addition to playing with others on various platforms, crossplay, combined with Cloud Saves, will see the player carrying progress across different platforms.
Minecraft Dungeons players will now also enjoy cross-party adventures with friends and other players across PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and Windows.
Crossplay comes to Minecraft Dungeons: PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and Windows
Players can download the update for free, which is always neat, and begin playing Minecraft Dungeons with friends who own the game on different platforms. Cloud Saves will also be available in a future update, a cool addition for players who like to play the game on other platforms and want their progress to be carried over.
