Minecraft Dungeons will release on PC on May 26th, releasing via the Microsoft Store, Xbox Game Pass and through an independent launcher (for Windows 7 and 8/8.1).    

With this release, gamers will be greeted with a Diablo-like experience, moving away from Minecraft's global destruction and reconstruction and into the realms of a blocky hack-and-slash. That said, the blocky aesthetic of Minecraft will help give this game a more family-friendly atmosphere. 

Earlier today, Mojang updated its Minecraft website to feature minimum PC specifications for Minecraft Dungeons, asking for DirectX 11 compatible graphics cards, 64-bit OS (Windows 10S is not supported), 8GB of system memory and 2GB of VRAM. Not bad for a modern AAA, though Minecraft games were always designed to be accessible. 

CPU-wise, Mojang wants players to use an Intel Core i5 processor with clock speeds of 2.8GHz or higher, and graphics cards equivalent or better than a GTX 660 or an HD 7870. Monitor-wise, the game supports a minimum resolution of 800x600. 

Minecraft Dungeons is expected to take up around 6GB of system storage, which is pretty low for a modern game. That said, this should be expected of a game with such simplistic visuals and art assets.
