Minecraft Legends release time

Evidently, there's only a short while left to wait for Minecraft Legends now. Only a few hours remain until you can jump in once it launches. Microsoft's subscription platform tends to offer early downloads for its day-one releases, so Minecraft Legends probably won't be an exception.

Those release times will generally be the moment where the game's servers go live, rather than when it is first accessible to download. So, if you're looking to get in as fast as you can to work on some tactical Minecraft battles, then take note of these times and add them to your calendar!

Minecraft Legends launch download size

With the game out today, you'll want to know how much space it'll take up on your hard drive.

Minecraft Legends' download size depends on the platform you're playing on, but it's 7GB on Xbox, 10.7GB on PC, and 6.6 on Switch.

That's it for our look at the Minecraft Legends release time, alongside a handy countdown timer to keep you locked into the specific time you need to keep an eye on.
