Minecraft Legends hotfix highlights
Team up with friends, faster matchmaking, and more!
It’s been less than two weeks since Minecraft Legends launched, and we’re thrilled that our community is finally getting to play it – over 3 million players have already experienced the legend for themselves. Thanks to our community, we’ve also received a lot of great feedback. We’re beginning to address it in the first game update, which is starting to make its way to all supported platforms right now!
Minecraft Legends update 1.17.28951 introduces a variety of improvements, and you can check out the full patch notes on our Help site. We’ve also compiled a summary of the changes below.
This is something a lot of players have asked for, and we’re very excited that you can now choose to play on the same team as your friends in matchmaking. All you have to do is invite them to join the lobby on your team in matchmaking. Afterwards, the game will assign other players to the opposing team.
Also, eager heroes can now rejoice over the significantly faster matchmaking starting timer. Once at least six players have joined a public lobby, the game will start in 10 seconds instead of 60.
Performance and stability
We’ve fixed several crashes that could occur in various scenarios, some spawn issues with piglins from piglin crates, and some audio issues with magma cubes.
We’ve also improved input latency on Nintendo Switch, alongside making general performance improvements for a smoother experience, increasing loading speed, and fixing crashes when loading into co-op campaigns.
We’ve made several improvements to text wrapping with Arabic and Hebrew localization as well as fixing various translations and a button mapping issue within the Japanese localization.
We want your feedback!
We’re continuously working on bringing improvements to Minecraft Legends based on your feedback, so if you have any suggestions or encounter an issue or bug during gameplay, please write to us at this link: bugs.mojang.com
