Hostile jungles and forever-winter lands have been just a taste of what's to come! Here's a sneak-peek of some of the amazing content we're bringing to Dungeons next year – don't worry if it doesn't look sparkly and perfect just yet, we've still got work to do. pic.twitter.com/RLgCzBESGpHostile jungles and forever-winter lands have been just a taste of what's to come!

In the teaser video, we get a very early look at what appears to be at least three new expansions coming to Minecraft Dungeons with the new year, covering exciting parts of the Minecraft universe like the Nether, the End, and even underwater areas from Minecraft's Aqua Update. Minecraft Dungeons continues to impress with its post-launch support, and these expansions are exactly what fans have been asking for, with some extra anticipation reserved for the Nether expansion (will the Nether Portal in the Camp finally be used?).
