'Minecraft Dungeons' (ALL) Reaches 10 Million Players, Flames of the Nether DLC Later This Month

by Rainier on Feb. 9, 2021 @ 8:42 a.m. PST

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!

The Minecraft Dungeons community has reached ten million players across all supported platforms! Ten. Million. Players. I don't think any of us at Mojang Studios could have ever imagined that the community of our dungeon-crawler passion project would grow to this point. Since the launch of the game in May 2020 across Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and Xbox/PC Game Pass, you have made the game into everything it is today. We're grateful and thrilled to be creating this game alongside you all!  

So, what have all ten million of you been up to? Well, the Arch-Illager has been defeated a casual 5,934,629 times. That's nearly as many times as the Arch-Illager has beaten me, so I'm glad everyone collectively avenged me. The most shocking fact of all might be that you spent a combined total of 1141 YEARS in camp! I tried to ask my boss if I could go camping until 3162 and he laughed in my face. Most impressively though, the Redstone Monstrosity has been beaten a total of 7,044,521 times! Of course, there were 19,511,994 attempts to best the Redstone Monstrosity, but hey... practice makes perfect.  

All those impressive stats may seem impossible to grasp, but behind those astronomical numbers are each and every one of our players. To celebrate reaching this monumental milestone, we're releasing a new cape and a pet for our players. It’s a small way to say thank you for being the best community out there (and saving the Overworld over and over again). These items will be available in your inventory on February 24 as part of the free game update releasing on the same date.

Flames of the Nether DLC

The Flames of the Nether DLC will take you on a journey to the blazing heart of the Nether itself. Six new missions await you – featuring familiar biomes as you've never seen them before! Those who survive the adventure will collect new artifacts, weapons, and gear! I personally can’t wait to play these new missions. I just need to work up the guts to face the fiery wrath of the Nether’s most dangerous mobs. Very casual. Nothing worse than a Sunday brunch with the gals. On a less terrifying note, the DLC also includes two new skins and the adorable Baby Ghast pet! How can something so cute and precious grow up into something so bone-chillingly scary?  

Free Content

But we don’t just have the paid DLC coming out, we also have what might be the most ambitious free update in Minecraft Dungeons history! This update includes a major new feature called Ancient Hunts, which are procedurally-generated end-game missions that weave in and out of the Nether. Surviving these Ancient Hunts and beating the Ancient mobs within is the only way to get top-tier Gilded gear! There’s also a chance to get Gold, a new currency that a newly-arrived Piglin merchant in your camp will find very interesting! We’ll have more details about these new features as we get closer to release

The free update and the Flames of the Nether DLC will both be available on February 24, 2021.

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.
