Minecraft Dungeons Will Get The Creeping Winter Expansion Next Month

Mojang and Double Eleven revealed today that the Creeping Winter expansion for Minecraft Dungeons is on the way in September. The content will drop on September 8th along with three events for the game that the devs didn't go into detail about just yet. The game will also receive an update that adds two new things to help you out a bit. The first being a Camp Update with new villager merchants, as you can visit the blacksmith to upgrade your favorite items or meet the gift wrapper to send an armored present. The other will be Daily Trials as you get a new challenge every day where you can replay previous levels in a new way. This includes random combos of mobs to defeat to win exclusive gear. Two trials will be available on the main map every day, and they are adding an extra for each DLC pack. You can read more about the Creeping Winter below.

This morning when I woke up and shook my trusted Magic 8-ball, the same answer kept floating to the surface: September 8. I thought that was pretty strange, but then checked the calendar and was utterly blown away by the wisdom of what some would call "a cheap toy that you can't consult to make all of your major life decisions." It turns out that September 8 will be an incredible day for fans of Minecraft Dungeons with not one or two, but THREE big events all landing on the same day. Because I'm the kind of person who eats dessert first, I figured I'd start with the biggest news, but these announcements are the text equivalent of a three-scoop sundae for dinner.

The Creeping Winter DLC brings a wintry storm that threatens to consume all it touches. The only chance of halting the biting frost is for a hero to take on new missions and relentless new enemies! Since no good deed goes unrewarded, let's say it's finders keepers on all the new armor, weapons, and artifacts you'll run into along the way. Just watch out for chilling new mobs and slippery ice on your way to save the day!
