Will Minecraft Dungeons have cross platform multiplayer?

Currently, you can play Minecraft Dungeons with other players using the same platform as you.

There are plans, however, to include cross platform multiplayer in a later free update to Minecraft Dungeons. This update is yet to be given a release date by Microsoft.

Once this update is released, you'll be able to play alongside any other Minecraft Dungeons player no matter what platform - Nintendo Switch, PS4, PC or Xbox One - you're playing on yourself.

What multiplayer options are available in Minecraft Dungeons at launch?

Minecraft Dungeons allows up to four players on the same platform to play together using either online or local multiplayer. This means that, even though the game doesn't support cross platform multiplayer yet, you can still enjoy the multiplayer aspect of the game.

You can't, however, mix local or online multiplayer at the same time - you've got to pick one.

If you do decide to explore Minecraft Dungeons with other players, then note that the game's difficulty, number of enemies and the loot you receive will be based upon the number of players joining you.

Cross platform saves restrictions in Minecraft Dungeons explained

Minecraft Dungeons will not support cross platform saves at launch, which means you won't be able to transfer either save files or game progress across platforms.

If you do decide to start playing Minecraft Dungeons on a console or PC that you haven't previously played the game on, you're essentially restarting the game from scratch - even if you're moving between an Xbox One and PC.
