One of the many news pieces coming out of Minecraft Live this past weekend is a new update for Minecraft Dungeons that will bring cross-play. An exact release date was not given at the time, but we do know that the update will allow players across all three major consoles and PC to work together online. Making your dungeons crawling a little less of a chore when there's always someone online looking to play. It was also revealed that the next DLC pack called Howling Peaks will launch in December 2020, which you can read a little more about below as we wait for a date on that as well.
My darling Arch-Illager's playground will get a major update in November when we add a free update for cross-play! Does this mean that the game will turn into a very advanced version of tic-tac-toe? No! For some reason the developers thought you should be able to play with your friends regardless of platform instead. If the Dungeons team spent a little less time socializing and a lot more time answering the notes I shove under their locked door we could all be playing a boring version of bingo right now on our respective devices. But to each their own.
Cross-play isn't the only thing coming to Dungeons, the brand new Howling Peaks DLC and a Season Pass are coming out in December! The new DLC also comes with a new boss, the Tempest Golem. I would advise playing in your windbreaker to up your fashion game while protecting yourself from the howling winds that this boss conjures up. Sounds like a breeze? No problem, you'll be able to turn up the difficulty in the free update Apocalypse Plus. This adds 20 new difficulties after Apocalypse VII, increases the characters' power ceiling, and adds new enchantments and items.
