Who developed Minecraft Legends?
Minecraft Legends is developed by Mojang, the Swedish studio that makes Minecraft, in partnership with Blackbird Interactive, the Canadian team working on the Homeworld series. To help out, a third team located in Redmond is also working on the project.
In terms of history, what does it give?
The beautiful lands of the Overworld find themselves threatened by an invasion of pigs. Players must send these invaders back to where they belong, namely the Nether, by uniting with other heroes to form valuable alliances.. Minecraft Legends will have a campaign”full of surprises for Minecraft beginners and veterans alike” according to the developer, who will talk about the myths of Outworld and which will hinder the player protagonist who needs his help. Hopefully, they will have a solution to offer against the Piglins. Like the original software, the universe will be both funny and a little disturbing, according to Mojang.
What is the game genre?
Minecraft Legends is an action-strategy game that qualifies as an RTS by its creators. In fact, the title will ask you to build your base while repelling various enemies that come in waves. Players must take command of legions of mobs from the series bestiary to unite the people of the Overworld against the swine invasion. It should be noted that in Minecraft Legends, yesterday’s enemies become allies. As we said, the story is about myth and it doesn’t always take place in the vanilla Minecraft universe as we are used to seeing it. Thus, Creepers become a formidable bomb with legs capable of punching holes in opponent’s installations. As for skeletons and other zombies, tough soldiers, they wear hats so they don’t get burned in broad daylight. Logical, right?
The Mojang team says that players will gradually learn to discover the strengths of these units, such as the special abilities of skeletons (strong over long distances) and golems. Because yes, in Minecraft Legends, blocks allow you to summon these valuable allies with multiple assets. In order to win the battle, the player must develop a strategy using each type of these cute creatures wisely.
Do you need to know Minecraft or Minecraft Dungeons to appreciate the adventure?
According to Mojang, You don’t need to play Minecraft to have fun in Legends. “It’s a game for everyone” who “covers a wide range of gameplay”. “If you are a connoisseur, you have played many of our other games, you will feel right at home, but this is a different experienceexplained Magnus Nedfors, creative director of the project. We already know that we will encounter Creepers, skeletons and zombies, and that many new golems will be in the game. Piglins is depicted as a funny villain, has childish reactions and brings a touch of comedy to the adventure.
Is there multiplayer?
Minecraft Legends will feature online co-op multiplayer. So you can team up with friends to explore software campaigns. A competitive (PvP) mode will also be available, allowing participants to send their multiple units into gear while building a gigantic base. In fact, the PVP mode pits two teams against each other, blue and orange, on a randomly generated map. Each team can consist of four players. As the game progresses, participants gain access to tougher mobs and stronger structures. Some buildings deal bonus damage to units and therefore will be priority targets for opponents. Strategy game requires, resources will be important. It should be noted that the pigs will wander around the map and may decide to surround structures in their path.
