News | Dungeons & Dragons campaign is coming to Minecraft

Mojang and Wizards of the Coast are teaming up for an upcoming Dungeons & Dragons expansion in Minecraft.

Created in partnership with Everbloom Games, the expansion will see players visit five well-known Forgotten Realms locations, including Icewind Dale and Candlekeep.

However, the expansion not only includes well-known D&D locations in block form, but also a ten-hour narrative campaign, including voice acting. Players can fight as paladins, wizards, rogues or barbarians and their moves against various enemies from the Dungeons & Dragons universe.

Players can level up their characters, but also shop in hubs before venturing into the open world and having to roll a virtual dice to determine progression. In every possible way, the DLC should radiate the atmosphere of the famous tabletop game.

The expansion should be available for the Bedrock Edition sometime this spring via the Minecraft Marketplace.
