'Minecraft Dungeons' (ALL) Cross-platform Play And Howling Peaks DLC Coming Later This Year

by Rainier on Oct. 5, 2020 @ 2:25 a.m. PDT

Fight your way through an all-new action-adventure game, inspired by classic dungeon crawlers and set in the Minecraft universe!

Brave the dungeons alone, or team up with friends! Up to four players can battle together through action-packed, treasure-stuffed, wildly varied levels – all in an epic quest to save the villagers and take down the evil Arch-Illager!

Discover a trove of powerful new weapons and items that will help you defeat ruthless swarms of new-and-nasty mobs. Fight or flee through canyons, swamps and – of course – mines! Any adventurer brave or foolish enough to explore this blocky and beautiful world will need to come prepared.

So quickly, gear up!

Bring a friend when cross-platform play arrives to Minecraft Dungeons!

Since launching in May on Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, we’ve had players playing “Minecraft Dungeons” around the world and those players will all be able to join each other online regardless of platform when cross-platform multiplayer gets enabled in a free game update coming this November.

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 Howling Peaks DLC will introduce a new boss – the Tempest Golem – who creates a storm of howling winds from the top of perilous peaks. New missions, items, and mobs await in this stormy conflict! And coming soon, we’re releasing a free game update that introduces “Apocalypse Plus.”This is a set of 20 new difficulties available after Apocalypse VII, adding significant challenge while also increasing the power ceiling for characters in the game. The update also adds new enchantments and new unique items.

Key Features:

  • Dungeon Creeper! Battle new-and-nasty mobs in this all-new action-adventure, inspired by classic dungeon crawlers.
  • Multiplayer! Up to four players can team up and fight together in co-op mode.
  • Power Up! Unlock dozens of unique items and weapon enchantments for devastating special attacks.
  • Options! Personalize your character, then fight up-close and personal with melee swings, hang back with ranged attacks, or tank your way through swarms of mobs, shielded by heavy armour!
  • Epicness! Explore treasure-stuffed levels in a quest to take down the evil Arch-Illager!
  • Mojang! The first stand-alone game developed by Mojang and set in the Minecraft universe since… well, Minecraft!

Minecraft Dungeons is currently available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC at $19.99 USD.
