Announcement of Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons DLC packs

Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons are both getting new DLC packs in the near future, and they couldn’t be more different. The Minecraft DLC is based on the How to Train Your Dragon film series, while the Dungeons Pack takes players underwater.

The How to Train Your Dragon pack adds a new area, the Barbarian Archipelago, which is the main location in the movies. As you’d expect from such DLC, you’ll be able to tame and ride dragons, and the world will have a variety of activities to complete. Additionally, the pack includes 24 new skins. It’s now available in the Minecraft Marketplace for 1340 coins, or around $8-9.

The Dungeons DLC, on the other hand, is titled Hidden Depths and takes place in the depths of the ocean. You will have to manage oxygen levels while exploring and fighting against a corrupting influence. There are also a number of new dangers and enemies, such as the pufferfish.

Along with the paid DLC – which will likely cost $6, if it’s consistent with previous packs – Dungeons will also get a free update. This will add several new levels as well as Raid Captains, who challenge enemies hidden across the world. The DLC pack and free update will launch on May 26 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
