We know that many of you who tried Minecraft Dungeons missed one big feature denying you an option to play with your friends. Upon launch, Minecraft Dungeons players were only able to group up with others who played the game on the same platform. The developers are fixing it and plan to implement cross-play support with the next game update.
The news was announced via Minecraft Dungeons’ Twitter account. Here’s a Tweet:
The new update will allow PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch players to group up and play this game together. However, currently, there’s no news about PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. It’s also worth adding that in order to create a cross-platform party, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 players will need to link up their platform and Microsoft accounts in order to activate this feature.
As mentioned above, this feature will become available on November 17th, meaning that it’s just in time for the new Minecraft Dungeons expansion. Minecraft Dungeons: Howling Peaks was announced a few weeks ago and promises to bring a new biome, new enemies and bosses, new missions, and rewards. It will also add a new hardcore mode called Apocalypse Plus which in addition to all the new content will serve players 20 new difficulty levels.

See you in a Dungeon!
