The next big DLC for Minecraft Dungeons has already been revealed: the massive and fiery Flames of the Nether DLC.

Flames of the Nether is going to contain six exciting new missions spread across all the new biomes introduced in Minecraft's Nether Update, with hordes of brand new enemies to discover and conquer.

Flames of the Nether launches for Minecraft Dungeons on February 24, 2021, on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PlayStation, PC, and even Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud), where Minecraft Dungeons is our number one pick in the Best Games for Xbox Cloud Gaming.
