Creeping Winter is coming to Minecraft Dungeons on September 8, 2020, so Mojang Studios is kicking off the week-long countdown with a preview of some upcoming gear added in the new expansion. The teaser puts together a base “loadout” using new additions present in Creeping Winter, and gives us our first real look at Creeping Winter’s chilling aesthetic.
Frost armor. First we have this icy protection, which probably won’t protect you from the cold, but it will defend you from attacks from the many hostile mobs lurking in the area. Apparently it also comes with a neat snow particle animation, hinting at the special abilities this armor can possess (randomly attacks enemies with flying snowballs, freezes attacking enemies, anything else?).
Winter touch. Your frozen armor wouldn’t be complete without a cool enough weapon to go with it, so Mojang Studios also showed off the Winter’s Touch arc. This weapon almost certainly freezes and slows enemies from a distance, judging just by its name and appearance, but we can’t be completely sure until Creeping Winter puts this new bow in our hands.
Ice cream stick. We already knew from a previous dev diary that a new hostile mob in Creeping Winter can summon and drop huge blocks of ice on players’ heads as they fight. Turns out, players can turn the tide with an artifact that does just that: summon huge chunks of ice to quickly fall on your enemies. Control the ice and target it wisely. I’ll be honest, it’s a little cold.
Icy skin. Creeping Winter wouldn’t be complete without new skins to adorn your character with, and that’s exactly what the Frosty skin aims to do. This skin definitely fits the “everyone is shaking” aesthetic of Creeping Winter, and should be perfect for players looking to match their hero to the environment they are currently fighting for their life in. Or do you like being cold and miserable?
The arctic fox. Last but not least (in fact, consider this one my favorite) is the Arctic Fox cosmetic pet. Like the baby chicken and the parrot before it, the arctic fox technically doesn’t do anything or help players in any way, but it’s still a must-have for any hero exploring the frozen tundra. This precious creature will follow you everywhere and look adorable all the time. not that your enemies will care.
Creeping Winter seems like a decent injection of content for Minecraft Dungeons, perhaps even surpassing Jungle Awakens that preceded it. While Jungle Awakens was a good sign of things to come, it was light on content and didn’t add a ton to the game. a lot After which they did not show. We will find out by your side on September 8, 2020.
