Here's some gameplay footage of the Minecraft Dungeons action-RPG

Last year at Minecon Mojang announced an action-RPG spin-off called Minecraft Dungeons, a Diablo-like with voxels. This year's Minecon gave us a closer look at it, with just over four minutes of gameplay footage.

While it maintains the blocky visual style of Minecraft there sure are a lot of flashy effects going off during combat, as the heroes fight skeletons, creepers, spiders and a surprising amount of sheep. There's also a pig with a treasure chest on its back that seems to be the loot goblin equivalent, and which is called a piggybank.

Though there are no classes characters are differentiated by their gear, including artifacts. One of the players here has a wind horn that pushes enemies back, and there's also wheat that summons a llama, which spits at enemies.

There's no mining or crafting of course, just a lot of whacking bad guys and collecting emeralds. Minecraft Dungeons is due out in 2020.

Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get.
