Original article [Thu 12th Nov, 2020 06:30 GMT]: Since the release of Minecraft Dungeons, Mojang has promised the game's community it would add in cross-platform multiplayer, so people across all systems could play together. Now, on 17th November, heroes on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC will be able to team up with each other.
"Heroes, are you listening?! Cross-platform play arrives on November 17 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows and Xbox One! It’s almost time to join forces – whatever platform you play on!"
This will be followed by the brand new Howling Peaks DLC and Season Pass in December. There'll also be some additional free content on the side - Apocalypse Plus (which adds 20 new difficulties, increases the characters' power ceiling, and adds new enchantments and items).
