What is “Minecraft Legends”?

Minecraft Legends is an action strategy game set in the world of Minecraft. Explore a variety of familiar biomes while slaying hordes of piglins and trying to prevent the Overworld from being overrun by creatures from the Nether. Battles are massive, with dozens of enemies (and allies) flooding the screen at any given time.

When you’re not engaged in real-time strategic combat, you can explore worlds littered with things to find and resources to loot. However, instead of forcing you to collect things piecemeal, you can send villagers to create a stockpile. These resources can then be used to craft various items and structures.

Minecraft is more about survival and doing things on your own, whereas Minecraft Legends is all about large-scale encounters and creating vast camps.
