Minecraft Dungeons: Howling Peaks expansion DLC is out now

Minecraft Dungeons cross-play Nintendo Switch November Minecraft Dungeons: Howling Peaks DLC December release date Mojang Studios Microsoft season pass

Minecraft Dungeons: Howling Peaks expansion DLC is available now to continue the dungeon-crawling adventures with friends. It is the first expansion in a new season pass being offered by Mojang Studios, and it takes the fighting to a treacherous mountaintop. The plans for the season pass were first revealed late last month, and it will include three more DLC expansions in the future.

The new content takes players on an “action-packed trek” atop a mountain, offering up some visual variety from the main game. The DLC pack also contains new weapons and artifacts, for those looking for a little bit extra. If paid DLC isn’t your jam, Mojang Studios is also delivering some free content.

A free update that arrives alongside Minecraft Dungeons: Howling Peaks delivers six new enchantments for players. Enchantments work as upgrades for specific weapons and armor, and six new options will provide some new dungeon-exploring variety.

If you are swayed by the paid offering, the season pass might be worth picking up. Just like most cases, this new season pass offers a discount on each DLC pack if you pay up front. It’s now been revealed that the pass is $20 on Switch. Mojang Studios will deliver more paid packs over the coming months.
