Minecraft Dungeons, the ARPG dungeon crawling addition to the growing Minecraft universe, has added a ton of new content and updates since its launch. More recently, the game just launched the Howling Peaks DLC alongside a new Season Pass, which includes Howling Peaks and three other unannounced expansions. To get into the holiday spirit, Mojang Studios is taking advantage of the Trials feature added in a previous update, which allows existing maps to be augmented and modified with new challenges, missions, and more.
The Chills and Thrills seasonal event capitalizes on these Trials with a series of unique challenges in exchange for exclusive rewards. This even includes a new type of armor with the Arctic Fox armor and other new items and gear. The Chills and Thrills event starts on December 18, 2020 and lasts until December 30. Players will have this time to complete all of the event trials and unlock all of the rewards on offer here.
Minecraft Dungeons is by no means a perfect game, but the constant flow of new content has been refreshing and the game is great fun with friends. Most notably, the game also topped our list of the best games for Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud) for its gameplay style, integrated touch controls, and how easy it is to get into the game.
