The long-awaited Minecraft Dungeons, the action RPG dungeon crawler (Diablo mixed with Minecraft) from Mojang. was released today and is the first new Minecraft title since the original record-breaking game came out in 2011.
Gone are the world-building ways of Minecraft and in its place is a frantic hack-and-slash game that can be played as a solo, or up to as many as four players, in coop mode.
The game is also available on Windows, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch, but that has left some disappointed as at launch the game doesn't feature cross-play - the ability to play with friends on different devices. Majong has promised that this feature is coming to the game in the future though but until then one user might have found a workaround for Xbox and PC players, allowing them to attempt to defeat the dreaded Arch-Illager on their preferred machine.
The glitch comes courtesy of Reddit user zMuska who provided a video and instructions for how to enable cross-play between Xbox One and PC.

Remember this is not an official feature and could be patched out at a moments notice, so try and enjoy it while you can and we will keep you updated with official cross-play as we get more information.
