Minecraft Dungeons is rolling out a new patch update today with, which pending adds the Spooky Fall event to Minecraft Dungeons. With this event, which lasts from today until November 3, 2020, you’ll have seasonal challenges and trials to complete, as well as exclusive gear and rewards to unlock. This is Minecraft Dungeons’ first holiday event, so hopefully this will pave the way for future timed celebrations.

Alongside the Spooky Fall event, we’re also getting the announced Apocalypse Plus mode on Minecraft Live alongside the Minecraft Dungeons Howling Peaks DLC. With Apocalypse Plus, players will have access to an extra twenty difficulty levels, leading to greater challenge, more powerful gear, and just a whole lot more game to play.
