Pick your platform, any platform.

Looking for an adorable RTS to keep yourself busy with? Jump on the Minecraft Legends train and get ready to take on the hordes of Piglins that are aiming to bring you down a peg or two. While this title is available on every major platform, there are going to be a few key differences that make some platforms more exciting than others. If you’re a player that has access to every available platform under the sun, you may be struggling to find which version you should get, but fret not! We are here to help you choose the right version for you.

Where Should You Play Minecraft Legends?

There are a few different reasons that players may be struck on where they should purchase Minecraft Legends, but fret not: we are here to help you figure it out with ease. While every platform may look and play the same, there are a few different reasons why you may be looking to get it on a specific platform, so let’s dive in and find out.

Keyboard Warriors Should Choose PlayStation or Xbox

If you’re hoping to jump right into Minecraft Legends and play it as Steve intended, you’re going to need a keyboard and mouse. While the game does control just fine with a Controller, having the option to jump in with your favorite keyboard can make your time spent in the game that much better. If you don’t have a PC that is capable enough of running Minecraft Legends at an acceptable framerate, you can jump onto your PlayStation or Xbox console of choice and play with this control method.

Portable Gamers Should Pick Steam Deck or Switch

While the Nintendo Switch is a household name at this point, some players may prefer the graphical fidelity and enhanced framerate that the Steam Deck has to offer them. If you’re a big enough fan of the game to purchase two copies or utilize Xbox Game Pass to its full potential, you’ll even be able to take your progress on the go, thanks to the Cross-Progression that Minecraft Legends has baked into it. Taking your battles on the go could be a major reason to invest in this particular version of the game, even if it may not be as graphically pretty as its counterparts.

Try Before You Buy With Xbox Game Pass

As we mentioned above, if you happen to have an Xbox, PC, or even a Mobile Phone with Xbox Game Pass, you’ll be able to give Minecraft Legends a proper try before you buy it on another platform. While this mix of RTS & Adventure gameplay may sound like your cup of tea on paper, you may find that it isn’t exactly what you thought it might be. Sign up for a month of Game Pass and hook up your favorite controller to your phone or laptop to give this one a try.
