The plot and other major gameplay details of the game are already out. Minecraft Legends takes place in a utopian version of regular Minecraft’s overworld. There, all hostile and passive Minecraft mobs live in complete harmony. But then, a Nether portal opens and this peace becomes a rarity. Now, mobs from the Nether dimension spawn at random locations and try to destroy the overworld and its residents.
You, as a player, have to team up with the overworld mobs and fight these Nether residents. There are tons of new golems, combat mobs, and amazing weapons to support your venture. Though, considering the resources that your enemies have, it all comes down to the right strategy.
