In Minecraft Legends we will control a character that can give orders to your allied units to guide them in battles where strategy will have a fundamental weight. Our goal is to defeat the piglins, some creatures that have come threatening to corrupt the Overworld. As you can see in the trailer, the traditional mechanics of Minecraft will continue to have a presence, as is the case with the constructionas well as the importance of biomes and resources.
