Today Microsoft released a new trailer for the upcoming action strategy game Minecraft Legends. The trailer focuses on the game’s backstory in which the Pigglins invade the overworld and a hero unites all to fight them.
Furthermore, we also get a video segment with the developers explaining what the game is about and how it is being developed. The video also shows a brief glimpse of the gameplay, while creative director Magnus Nedfors and executive producer Dennis Ries explain what we can expect from an action strategy game set in the world of Minecraft.
Interestingly, we hear that adding a hero to strategy games slows down RTS (Real Time Strategy) gameplay and makes it more suitable to be played on consoles. Eventually, the developers want to create something that can be enjoyed by both gamers who don’t usually play strategy games and also enthusiasts of the genre.
