Now Playing: Minecraft Dungeons Video Review

The Howling Peaks is the first of four DLCs included in the second Minecraft Dungeons Season Pass. Like Howling Peaks, each of the upcoming Minecraft Dungeons DLC expansions will add new levels, items, puzzles, and story. Like the two DLCs included in the first season pass, you’ll be able to purchase each of these next four DLCs individually if you prefer, but again the season pass gets you all four at a cheaper price.

Whether or not you accept these upcoming expansions, Minecraft Dungeons players have more content to look forward to. Free content will continue to flow into the game alongside paid DLC, such as six free enchantments that will be added alongside the Howling Peaks.

Writing in GameSpot, Steve Watts wrote: “Minecraft Dungeons are missing obvious parts of what gave the namesake its identity – notably, breaking through walls to explore underground caverns and using found materials to craft. But because it is such a successful departure from its predecessor, Dungeons shows just how flexible the franchise has become.Rather than changing our expectations of what games can be, it capitalizes on its own popularity to introduce young gamers to a classic genre and serves as a short but sweet treat for veteran looters. It scratches the dungeon-crawler itch with a sense of goofy charm and expands what Minecraft can be.”
