The good news is that yes, Minecraft Legends is available to play two-player. In fact, you can play with up to seven friends at once depending on which game mode you choose. If you want to play co-operatively, you can play either the full campaign or a scenario together with up to three of your friends. Or if you want to play a PVP battle, you can play as two teams with between one to four players on each team. It’s also worth noting that Minecraft Legends is fully cross-play, so it doesn’t matter whether your friends are playing on a handheld, console, or PC as you can still team up.
