Most recently, the game just launched the Howling Peaks DLC alongside a new Season Pass, which includes Howling Peaks and three other unannounced expansions.

Minecraft Dungeons isn't a perfect game, by any means, but the steady stream of new content has been refreshing, and the game is a lot of fun with friends. Most notably, the game also leads the pack on our list of Best Games for Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud) for its style of gameplay, its integrated touch controls, and how easy it is to jump into the game.
