Minecraft Dungeons has been a smash-hit. The couch co-op nature of the new dungeon-crawler made it the perfect lockdown game.

Now a new update, fresh DLC, and more content is on the way!

Creeping Winter DLC

After the wonderful Jungle Awakens DLC, the latest Dungeons adventure is on its way!

Landing on 8 September, Creeping Winter promises a new adventure for even seasoned warriors.

CHILLY RECEPTION: A frozen adventure awaits!

It will be £4.99 for those playing on Game Pass or who didn’t buy the Hero Edition.

However, you can get the Hero Pass Upgrade for around £8.40, so if you didn’t play Jungle Awakens yet its a nice little discount!

The in-game description promises three new missions, a new Boss Battle, new mobs, and all-new gear.

Beyond that little is known, but given the quality of gameplay its likely to be worth your time!

Free content update

Along with the paid DLC there is a free update coming on 8 September too.

There will be some new features coming into the game, including new merchants and Daily Trials.

NEW SECRETS TO UNCOVER: With new levels come new hidden features!

You’ll encounter captured merchants during your adventures that need saving, so be sure to help them as they will be very grateful.

The blacksmith will upgrade items for you and the gift wrapper will allow you to trade items with other players in multiplayer!

The Daily Trials will provide fun new challenges every day! Daily Trials make wild changes to the game mechanics which provide difficult, experimental, or fun challenges for you to overcome.

Physical copies

Finally, if you’ve been waiting to get a physical copy of Minecraft Dungeons then you’re in luck!

Nintendo, Sony, and Xbox copies will be available on 8 September too!

These will be the Hero Edition, meaning both DLCs are included!
