What you need to know
- Mojang, the developers behind Minecraft, has an "Ask Mojang" series on YouTube.

- The latest episode, part of the "Home Edition" series, is now available.
- This episode is a short one, but still has some neat information about Minecraft Dungeons.
With more people working from home than going out, it's important for companies to keep communicating with their customers. Mojang has their "Ask Mojang" series of videos, in which various team members from across Mojang's three Minecraft games answers questions posed by the community. The third Home Edition episode is short, but it focuses almost entirely on Minecraft Dungeons.
The team members talk about what they've been up to at home, but the interesting tid bit comes later on. When asked if there are additional "secret" levels after you beat the game, one member refused to say anything confirming or denying the question. The other shifted focus and began talking about how Minecraft Dungeons has procedurally generated levels, meaning each time you play the level can look and feel differently.
It's impossible to draw any conclusions from such a small interaction, but we already know that higher difficulties are unlocked in Dungeons by first beating the game at a lower difficulty. It's not outside the realm of reason that there may be hidden levels unlocked by this too. Either way, we'll all be able to find out as soon as the game comes out for Xbox One and PC on May 26th.
