New Xbox Game Pass Game is Already a Big Hit

A brand-new Xbox Game Pass game became a major hit with millions of players around the world just a few weeks after its launch.

Minecraft Legends is already a major hit for Xbox Game Pass with millions of players venturing through the Overworld since its launch last month. Following the success of the ever-popular Minecraft, Minecraft Legends brings a new experience in the form of an action strategy game featuring co-op and competitive multiplayer.

Developed by Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive, Minecraft Legends focuses on the story of a hero who protects the Overworld from the Piglin Invasion and the Nether. The Nether corruption spread by the Piglins destroys everything within reach, and it’s up to players to combat this threat and become the fabled hero in Minecraft Legends. Players may also enjoy a co-op campaign with up to four players or face off against each other in Versus Mode, which supports up to eight players.

Minecraft Legends is one of the most well received first-party titles for Xbox Game Pass in 2023 alongside Tango Gameworks’ Hi-Fi Rush. The success of Minecraft Legends also extends past Xbox Game Pass since the recently released title is available now on multiple platforms including Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 5.

Minecraft Legends achieves an incredible feat with its three million players around the world, but Microsoft did not confirm the exact number of Xbox Game Pass subscribers that have played the new title. However, Xbox Game Pass likely contributed greatly to the overall player count of Minecraft Legends. The game’s success may be partially credited to the growing number of Xbox Game Pass subscriptions as players look forward to Xbox’s new titles in 2023 and beyond. Nonetheless, the latest milestone for Minecraft Legends is a great look for Xbox Game Pass going forward.
