What you need to know
- Minecraft Dungeons, a brand-new ARPG from Mojang Studios, has just launched to much fanfare.
- We already saw hints of the DLC that may be planned for the game, Creeping Winter and Jungle Awakens.
- We now might have possible release dates, thanks to a user on Reddit.
- The image of Nintendo's eShop shows two DLC packs for Minecraft Dungeons, with release dates for July and September, 2020.
Minecraft Dungeons is barely out the door, and we've already received a ton of unexpected information about the DLC packs that may be planned for the co-op focused dungeon crawler. Creeping Winter and Jungle Awakens will inject fresh content into Minecraft Dungeons to keep people hooked on its loot-based gameplay, and should be the two DLC packs included with the Hero Edition.
According to an eagle-eyed Reddit user, MrTommyboy247, Nintendo's eShop page for Minecraft Dungeons: Hero Edition briefly showed two unnamed DLC packs, as well as planned release dates for each one. The first DLC pack for Minecraft Dungeons supposedly has a planned release date of July, 2020, while the second has one a few months later in September, 2020.
Since we previously saw a leak involving named DLC, it's easy to speculate and connect the dots here. We're not sure which DLC pack comes first, and none of this information is official, so take all of this with a grain of salt. All we can say is: we won't have long to wait for more fun in Dungeons, especially since Mojang Studios is also planning free updates on top of paid DLC.
Not your average Minecraft
Minecraft grows up and and reaches out.
Minecraft Dungeons is the next saga in Minecraft's story, and it looks like Mojang and Microsoft are hitting another one out of the park. Minecraft Dungeons combines the familiar world we all grew up on with an injection of Diablo, a whole lot of fun. Available on every platform you're on, for a ridiculously tempting price, what's not to love?

These DLC timings are not soon enough for how lightweight this game is. Also, I strongly believe this game should have been delayed to launch with proper cross ay and cross saves. It's unacceptable for a first party Microsoft title (especially one like this) to launch without: - Cross Buy for PC and Xbox
- Cross Save for PC and Xbox (and the rest of the platforms)
- Cross Platform Multiplayer for all platforms. Its 2020 FFS. It's unacceptable, and we should be naming and shaming companies for this.
