Minecraft Battle mini-game now available on consoles

2 minute read

Minecraft received its first ever Battle mini-game. Announced some time ago, the new mini-game has been released as an update for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Wii U versions of the game.

Minecraft‘s Battle mini-game is just one of a few mini-games Mojang plans to release for Minecraft on consoles. For now, we have no information about other mini-games that have yet to be added to Minecraft on consoles, but we’ll surely know more soon.

In Minecraft‘s Battle mini-game, players fight against each other using various resources and crafted methods. Here’s how Mojang explains the game:

“It’s a last-minecrafter-standing deathmatch in which players tussle over resources and weapons in perilous arenas, fending off would-be assassins and their own hunger pangs. We’ve designed it specifically for consoles in mind – it’s super-accessible and fast-paced, made to support couch-based competition just as easily as online matchmaking. There’s no need to craft anything here, and you can loot inventories and equip armour with the tap of a button. Fall beneath your opponent’s blade (or enchanted fishing rod) and you respawn as a spectating bat, fluttering in the face of your nemesis.”

Although Minecraft‘s Battle mini-game is being for free to all Minecraft console players, additional maps for this mode can be purchased for $2.99 each.
