You can pick up Minecraft Dungeons on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and the PC. It’s offered across a variety of different platforms, ensuring if you want to do some dungeon crawling with your friends, and you have access to a console, you’ll be able to adventure in the game. But can you only play with those on the same platform?

When the game initially launched, you could only play with those using the same hardware. Developers Mojang has announced that Minecraft Dungeons will receive cross-platform play starting in November of 2020.

It’s something the development team highly encouraged, mainly because there’s no online matchmaking, and players will be left having to solely play with their friends or those in the same room as them. The cross-platform flexibility will ensure it won’t matter what platform your friends have and where they originally purchased it. Everyone will be able to play together, regardless of their hardware.

While the launch of Minecraft Dungeons limited players, you can soon expect to jump into a dungeon with your friends. Those who have Xbox Game Pass won’t have to pick up the game because it’ll be available with the subscription service.
