    I’d imagine a future update might bring the skins from the Minecraft marketplace and custom created characters to the game. That functionality exists in Minecraft Earth already

    Could it be possible to hit level 50 as you progress through the difficulties? Or will it require 100 hours of additional playtime after you've already done everything else?

    Are you stuck with the hero that you choose or you can change it and game keep your progress with each one?

    Wow 1st review i've seen for ages and it's for MD :( I'll never play this :( I'm sure my children will though, amazing game for kids, for the children! One of my boys PS slims has broken though, it never rains it pours, so he'll have to wait. :( Argos has been out of stock for about a week. Funnily enough the PsVR has loads of stock, hmmm wonder why.

    Do you know any other dedicated Xbox websites that I can read reviews? Not XBLA or The Wire they both suck hard, i'm only interested in Xbox dedicated websites. Preferably active, actually that's a must.

    Not for me but I really appreciate that you took the time to try a game and write up a review.

    Official site reviews still exist! Wow!

    At a glance, it looks just like Riverbond. Not that I expected much anyway.

    I agree more reviews and I’m glad the game sounds like it’s not too bad. I’m surprised the no online matchmaking didn’t come up. I don’t understand why this ever happens anymore. Maybe it will be added in a later patch but with gamepass people will play right away, leave a bad taste in their mouth and they won’t come back with new games coming in every month.

    I have been hearing only positives about this title. I am really looking forward to playing.

    You can play online with friends though? I wouldn't have thought this style of game lent itself to travelling with randoms anyway. (Obviously depending on how long the levels are).

    Wasn't too sure about the game beforehand but I might actually like this. Only a couple of days left

    If I've never played Minecraft then would I enjoy this game?

    Might start the GwG Warhammer similar game in the meantime.

    Yeah you can play with friends but not everyone has a group to play with. It’s just odd to see this happen but especially a 1st party game.

    Minecraft is an online game played by a ton of kids, with that comes all sorts of predation and Microsoft has sure as hell got to be aware of that.

    I’m still surprised but that at least is a very good reason.
