Minecraft Dungeons "Holiday 2020" Trailer

The holidays are here for Minecraft Dungeons

Gear up this holiday season! Brave the dungeons and share the gift of adventure with the Minecraft Dungeons DLCs and Season Pass.

Minecraft Dungeons updated to Version

Chill out

As we mentioned earlier in the week, Minecraft Dungeons was updated to welcome the Chills and Thrills seasonal event. That update brought the game up to Version, and you can read the patch notes below.

- Fixed the Apocalypse Plus prompt appearing after every completed mission (MCD-4879)
- Cooldown Reduction now affects Satchel of Elements and Scatter Mines (MCD-4892)
- Fixed mobs not spawning during Night Mode
- Disabled invisibility for enchanted mobs because that was too intense!

Minecraft Dungeons "Chills and Thrills" seasonal event is now live

Chillin' like a villain

The weather outside might be frightful, but the new Chills and Thrills seasonal event in Minecraft Dungeons is just delightful! Best of all, you won’t even need to put on your snow boots. Unless you want to. Who am I to tell you how to play video games in your own home?

The chilliest and thrilliest event in Minecraft Dungeons history kicks off today (December 18 for you too snow-struck to check the calendar) and will run through December 30, 2020. The event will have six new winter-themed trials with two new trial modifiers, including a changing number of chests, changing the cooldown on artifacts, and invisible mobs. Invisible mobs? For the sake of my nerves, I’m not going to dwell on that terrifying little tidbit.

And the cherry on top of this stone-cold sundae? There are three unique collectable items as rewards! Slay the snowy fashion game with the Arctic Fox Armor, slice your way through the ice with the Frost Slayer, or cut through chilling winds with the Shivering Bow – each item brings a wintery approach to combat.

Now all you need to do is jump into Minecraft Dungeons and head to the Seasonal Events where you can access all of the Chills and Thrills trials! What are you waiting for?
