Mojang Studios, the developer of Minecraft, has teamed up with Wizards of the Coast to bring a Dungeons & Dragons experience to Minecraft players. The collaboration marks the first time that Minecraft players will have the opportunity to embark on a 10-hour adventure inspired by the popular tabletop RPG.
In an announcement during WotC’s D&D Direct presentation, Mojang Studios revealed that the DLC features a fully-voice-acted adventure with a narrative-based storyline that includes classic D&D elements such as spells, ability scores, and dice rolling. However, the cast for the voice acting has not yet been disclosed.
A one-minute Minecraft Dungeons & Dragons launch trailer is also up on YouTube which provides a glimpse into what to anticipate. The DLC will have a “game within a game” concept, similar to the recent Jumanji movies, as Mojang Studios’ Senior Producer, Riccardo Lenzi, shared.
The adventure will begin in a basement, where players will encounter a Dungeon Master (DM) who will introduce them to the rules of D&D and help them create a character from one of four classes: Paladin, Barbarian, Wizard, or Rogue. The players will then be transported to the Forgotten Realms and embark on an epic journey. While the DLC won’t be entirely open-world, it will feature vast landscapes and cities for players to explore as they progress through the adventure.
The Minecraft Dungeons & Dragons DLC offers both single and multiplayer options, allowing players to simulate the experience of traveling with companions in a traditional D&D adventure. As part of the storyline, a dragon loses its body under mysterious circumstances and ends up sharing a body with the player character, leading to plenty of banter and interaction between the two.
Players can also look forward to encountering several famous towns and creatures from the world of Dungeons & Dragons, including Mimics, Displacer Beasts, and Beholders, adding to the authenticity of the experience.
The release of the Minecraft Dungeons & Dragons DLC is yet another example of Minecraft’s ongoing commitment to bringing new content to its players. Despite being in the market for more than a decade now, Minecraft continues to push out updates that keep its fan base excited and engaged.
In addition to the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons DLC, Minecraft players can also look forward to exploring several popular roleplaying servers. These servers offer unique and immersive experiences that allow players to become fully immersed in their favorite universes. Some of the best Minecraft roleplaying servers for 2023 include:
