Minecraft Dungeons can be played online with 1 – 4 players. The game’s difficulty will change based on how many players are within the game, scaling to be more difficult the more friends that join. You can also start a multiplayer game by yourself and have others join your quest for glory while your game is in progress.
If you prefer to play with others in person, go back to the main menu, and select the Online Game | Change above the Online Game tab. Now highlight and pick Offline Game before loading up your world. When you’re in your camp, open up your friends list to connect the other players. Now all you have to do is have the other players make their Minecraft Dungeons characters and they will load into the game.
