Battle mode coming to Minecraft

New minigame will appear on console versions next month

Posted on

Team Minecraft at Mojang, 4J Studios and Microsoft have announced the development of minigames for Minecraft: Console Edition, with the the first mini game, called Battle, coming in June.

Battle allows you to set up a competitive multiplayer fight for survival. Players in Battle matches use randomly generated resources found in chests placed in specially designed PVP maps and combat one another in a free for all death match until the final victor is determined.

Fallen players can spectate the combat among remaining players in the match by freely flying around each arena as a bat. Battle matches can be played with up to four players in split-screen and up to 8 players online. Or, you can find other community members to join your game via an in-game matchmaking system.

In June, Battle will be rolled out for free to all owners of Minecraft on consoles via a game update, and the free update will include three maps for you to try out. If you like Battle and want more, there will be additional Map Pack add-ons periodically after release for $2.99 USD.

Minecraft: Console Edition is available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PS4.
