Big news today for Minecraft Dungeons fans, with the Creeping Winter DLC release date finally announced! According to Mojang Studios, Creeping Winter will release on September 8, 2020 and will bring new levels, monsters, gear, and more to their Diablo-them-up cooperative ARPG adventure. Players who purchased the Hero Edition will gain access to Creeping Winter at no additional cost, just like with Jungle Awakens, while other players can purchase the DLC separately.

That’s not all news though, as Minecraft Dungeons is also getting a big free update on the same day which will add new content and make sweeping changes to the game. This update will launch alongside Creeping Winter, but will be available for all players regardless of which version of the game they have purchased. New merchants will be added to the game and can be rescued on your travels.

  • The blacksmith can upgrade equipment for you.
  • Gift wrapping can help you trade with other players in multiplayer.
  • Merchants can be upgraded to have additional stock.

The update will also add new daily trials that promise to bring “wild changes to game mechanics” and offer rewards in exchange for completing various challenges. Just like with the free update that came with Jungle Awakens, we also expect more balance changes, fixes, and general improvements to be made to Minecraft Dungeons as well.

Finally, Minecraft Dungeons is getting a physical release in retail stores! Fans of physical game copies can rejoice, as they will be able to get their hands on physical copies of Minecraft Dungeons for Xbox, PS4, and Nintendo Switch starting September 8, 2020. Fans in Japan will have to wait another month due to manufacturing issues. The physical copies will be the Hero Edition, so they will include the Jungle Awakens and Creeping Winter DLCs right out of the box!
