Minecraft Dungeons releases patch update for ‘Howling Peaks DLC’, fixes some bugs

A small patch to end the year for Dungeons.

Minecraft Dungeons has had a busy month already, with the release of this third expansion, the Howling Peaks DLC, and a new Season Pass that includes the latest DLC along with three more future updates. However, Mojang Studios hasn’t finished the year yet and is releasing a small patch update for Minecraft Dungeons with the update. There’s nothing terribly exciting about this patch, but it fixes a few annoying bugs and makes some balancing changes, one of which should hopefully make the game fairer.

Minecraft Dungeons is cross-platform play and recently enabled Minecraft Dungeons cross-play between these platforms. Play on console, PC, Switch, and even your mobile device through Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud), where Minecraft Dungeons is our top pick for the best games for Xbox Cloud Gaming. If you want to play Minecraft Dungeons and more on the go, be sure to also invest in one of the best controllers for Xbox Cloud Gaming.

This update should be available for all Minecraft Dungeons platforms simultaneously. The full changelog for Update includes:


  • Fixed Apocalypse Plus prompt appearing after every completed mission
    • This prompt will still appear once each time the game is restarted and a full fix for the issue will come in a future update
  • Cooldown reduction now affects Element Satchel and Scatter Mines
  • Fixed mobs not spawning in night mode
  • Disabled invisibility for enchanted mobs because it was too intense!
