Minecraft Legends may have released alongside much-hyped AAA games with much more influential marketing campaigns, but that hasn't stopped it from falling into the hands of an astonishing number of players. Just two weeks after release, Minecraft Legends has apparently been played by over 3 million players.

Along with this announcement, Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive are releasing the first patch for the game, which brings much-needed fixes and improvements to Minecraft Legends. This is a modest update, so don't expect any new content here, but it should make players who have encountered some of these issues very happy.

The latest Minecraft Legends update is currently being rolled out to the game on all platforms, including Xbox, Windows PC, PlayStation, and Switch. It will also reach players who enjoy the game through Xbox and PC Game Pass or Xbox Cloud Gaming. Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive will tirelessly work to improve Minecraft Legends over time, so this patch is the first of a long series. The humble update is based on community feedback, with some of its most important fixes including:

  • The ability to choose to play on the same team as your friends in PvP matchmaking
  • Significantly faster online matchmaking
  • Several fixes for crashes, generation issues, and audio problems.
  • Improved input latency, performance, and load times on Switch
  • Various fixes for Arabic, Hebrew, and Japanese localization

In our review of Minecraft Legends, we concluded that the game is a flawed but incredibly enjoyable experience. Hopefully, future updates to the game will reduce those flaws and improve the fun. As it is, Minecraft Legends is already one of the best Xbox games for fans of action, strategy, and cooperative fun (and 3 million players seem to agree).
