Minecraft Dungeons Seasonal Adventures Begin This December (VIDEO)
If taking the blocky stylings of Minecraft to the dungeon-crawler genre wasn’t interesting enough, Minecraft Dungeons has boasted several prominent DLCs following the fantasy-inspired spin-off to its literal End conclusion this past summer. While this finale marked the culmination of the title’s narrative thus far, developers Double Eleven and Mojang Studios are preparing to add even more to the title’s endgame in the Form of Seasonal Adventures.
As revealed during the recent Minecraft Live event, the finale of the Dungeons’ storyline has now given rise to Seasonal Adventures, which aims to add a series of new content on a regular basis. The update will introduce the Adventure Points currency, which is earned by completing activities like weekly challenges and exploring a seed-generated enemy labyrinth called The Tower that reconfigures every two weeks. The first bit of Tower gameplay was shown during the live event, seen below.
Adding to the availability, Seasonal Adventures will support both free and paid tiers, with either path presenting a different range of content. This release method sounds similar to a battle pass, with Mojang phrasing the premium as an ‘Adventure Pass.’ The team confirmed that Seasonal Adventures won’t expire after the previous one concludes, with each existing alongside each other indefinitely. A mix of new and old rewards was also teased to be doled out to players along with new pet varieties, explosive flairs and emotes, as well as a range of extra cosmetic options.
As of now Minecraft Dungeons’ Seasonal Adventures is scheduled to release this December, with the first said adventure titled ‘Cloudy Climb.’ As this was only the first reveal, more information is sure to be detailed in the weeks ahead, including a more solid release date. Other than Dungeons, the Minecraft Live event also held reveals for the future of vanilla Minecraft, as well as the addition of both Java and Bedrock Editions to Xbox Game Pass for PC.
Minecraft Dungeons is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, as well as PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility.
