Minecraft Dungeons Launcher FAQ

Why does Minecraft Dungeons have a dedicated launcher?

Unfortunately, you can't start Minecraft Dungeons from the Minecraft Launcher because Minecraft Java Edition and Minecraft Dungeons use different account systems. We know this is not ideal and we are doing our best to include both games in the same launcher! Bear with us, feel free to give feedback, and learn more about this here.

I have bought my copy of Minecraft Dungeons on Win10 store can I still use the Minecraft Dungeons Launcher to start the game?

Choose where you purchase your version of Minecraft Dungeons thoughtfully, for that will determine how you are able to access the game moving forward. That means if you buy Minecraft Dungeons on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10, you will also need to play through the Microsoft Store. The same goes for if you purchase the Minecraft Dungeons Launcher version of the game, you will have to access the game through the Minecraft Dungeons Launcher. It’s the same great game either way you decide to purchase it, but make sure you are aware that you will always have to access the game through the same channel in which you purchased it.
