Enjoying your evil-busting adventures in Minecraft Dungeons on Nintendo Switch? Well, even more content is heading your way in the future!
Mojang has confirmed that two new DLC packs are on their way to the game. The first one launching in July 2020, Jungle Awakens, will add three new missions that send players to a deep forest with leafy enemies. The second pack, Creeping Winter, will go live later this year.
Here are the full details below:
“A few days ago, the Minecraft universe got a great deal bigger – and so has the pile of dishes that I’ve been ignoring since the launch of Minecraft Dungeons. But since neglecting my job in favor of gaming has consequences that extend beyond my visual and olfactory pleasure, I’m here to announce (*cough* or confirm *cough*) some exciting future updates!
But first, on a more serious note, we would like to acknowledge the amazing response we got these past few days. One of the most exciting things about the launch is seeing your first impressions, the hidden and secret areas you’re discovering, not to mention the endless combinations of armor and artifacts you’re creating. We’ve put a lot of time, love, and hard work in this game – and seeing it finally in the hands of our community is an indescribable feeling. What’s even more exciting – there’s more to come!
You probably already know that we’re currently working on new content for Minecraft Dungeons, especially if you’ve purchased the Hero Edition. However, what you might not know is that the first of the two planned DLCs – Jungle Awakens – is coming in July! In this adventure, you’ll enter a distant, dangerous jungle to fight a mysterious power in three new missions. To defeat the terrors hidden among the vines, you’ll have new weapons, armor, and artifacts at your disposal.
Once you’ve had enough of the jungle heat, you’ll explore some frozen peaks in Creeping Winter! This second addition to Minecraft Dungeons will be coming later this year, so keep an eye on this blog and our socials for future sneak peeks.
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling really good about getting the Hero Edition right now – and it’s not just because of the baby chicken that comes with it. Have you seen how cute it is though?
Did you think that was it? Far from it! ! The team is also working on adding cross-platform play functionality and cool new free content for Minecraft Dungeons that everyone will receive, regardless of edition! We’ll come back with more details in the coming weeks. In the meantime, equip your favorite weapon and show that Arch-Illager who’s boss! Get it? I’ll see myself out.”
