Minecraft is one of the biggest franchises in the gaming world and it has made its way to a lot of different platforms and devices over the years. With the release of Minecraft Dungeons, a series owned by Microsoft, a lot of players are wondering if you can play it on Mac. Here’s what we know so far.
Can You Play Minecraft Dungeons on Mac?
Minecraft Dungeons is available on PC, but no, you cannot play it on Mac. The game is currently exclusive to Windows on PC, as the franchise is owned by Microsoft, the parent company of Windows. Additionally, the game is available for purchase on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
While you cannot play Minecraft Dungeons on a Mac, if you are a Game Pass subscriber with a Windows device, you can get the game for free on either device. Further, the game supports the Xbox Play Anywhere feature which means you only have to purchase the game once and can play it on any Xbox or Windows device with your data saved and transferred.
However, not all is lost. At one point in time, the official Minecraft Dungeons website did state that the game would be released on Mac. However, as the release date got closer, Mac was removed from the list of available platforms and was never added back. Since then, it hasn’t been added back and there has been no word from developers on why Mac was removed from the platform list.
However, since it was listed as an available platform at one point in time, there is some hope that the game could see a release on Mac at some point in the future. However, in the meantime, you’ll have to settle for playing the game on one of the many other platforms.
Minecraft Dungeons is a bit different than the original game, as it focuses heavily on story and exploring randomly generated dungeons. The game supports co-op split-screen play with up to four players but doesn’t allow you to drop and trade items between your group. There are currently ten main missions in the game, with two DLCs planned for the future. Maybe by the time the DLCs are released, you’ll be able to play it on Mac.
