It took a little longer than expected, but now we’re getting a proper patch update for Minecraft Dungeons that fixes a whole list of issues players were having with stability and general gameplay. The changelog is quite impressive on all platforms, for at least one patch, but each platform also receives additional patches specific to that console. The update is out now for Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4, but it’s also coming to Xbox One and Windows shortly.
We’ll update this article when we also receive the update on Xbox One and Windows 10. You can also check the Minecraft Dungeons help page for more info on patches when they come out. This seems like a pretty solid patch and should make the game much more stable for many players.
