What is the Minecraft Dungeons Beta?

Mojang opened a closed beta exclusively for Microsoft Windows players from March 25th to April 25th, 2020. Participants were able to enter on the Minecraft Dungeons website for a chance to participate in the limited beta.

The beta release seems to have been primarily for testing purposes, with the official FAQ stating that the Beta is “aimed towards testing online gameplay.” This explains why only a few players were given the opportunity to access the game.

The beta is also known to have only included “a small sample of content from the full version of Minecraft Dungeons.” It's highly likely that there will still be many more surprises waiting that were not revealed in the beta version.

Beta Period is Over


A notice on the official site declares that the beta period has ended.

Unfortunately, the beta period has ended, and it is no longer possible to play the Beta.

In fact, even players who were given access to the Beta are no longer able to play the game. As such, it seems that there's truly no way to play the game until the release date, barring any last-minute demo release from Mojang.

We'll be adding more information at lightning speed as the release date approaches! Check back here at Game8 to find out if any new demo releases or beta versions become available this month.

      Yep. The game feels like an arcade dungeon crawler game because of that. I think it would be better if they made an actual, great, and deep story for the game.
