The new Minecraft D&D DLC has players choosing among classes like Barbarian, Paladin, Wizard, or Rogue to start exploring iconic Forgotten Realms locations such as Candlekeep and Icewind Dale. Players will be facing off against classic baddies such as beholders, mimics, mindflayers, and, of course, dragons.
