Minecraft Dungeons is getting a new season pass in addition to four new DLC packs in the coming weeks. This will bring its total DLC count to six, which will help spice up this little Diablo-esque animated dungeon crawler for Minecraft fans.
The first in a series of four new packs, Mojang is releasing Howling Peaks, which is set to debut on December 9. Announced via a blog post, the developer confirmed that Howling Peaks will introduce a new set of story missions and enemies, additional gear and items, and a new biome to explore.
The new Season Pass will offer savings to players, who will receive the Howling Peaks DLC along with the other three versions when they become available.
Heroes, a storm is brewing! Are you ready for your most dangerous journey yet?
The Howling Peaks DLC is coming to Dungeons on December 9. It’s time to climb to the top!

There’s currently no additional information on what the other three DLC packs will explore, or when we might see them in the wild. It should be a good time, though, for eager players looking to tackle some fun dungeon crawling action when the new content arrives.
We gave Minecraft Dungeons a 7.6 in our review, praising its “fast and varied combat” and the fact that, at its core, it’s fun to fly solo or play with friends.
“Minecraft Dungeons is a bright and colorful dungeon crawler, with interesting enemies and fast-paced, frantic combat. It doesn’t bring anything new to the genre and takes away a lot of its complexities, leaving us with a simple, accessible game , banal. but still a fun game.”
Just a week ago, the game added cross-platform multiplayer support. The patch, which dropped on November 17, now allows PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC players to join in and raid dungeons together. This update comes just in time for new content to be released, and with the holidays approaching, families have plenty of opportunities to play together.
