Minecraft Dungeons: Hidden Depths DLC Out Now!
Minecraft Dungeons is officially one year old! In celebration of this momentous day, Mojang released Hidden Depths, the new underwater DLC for the game, plus the start of a very special Anniversary in-game event.
Hidden Depths includes both paid and free content, and will unlock new ocean-inspired weapons, gear and artifacts such as the Coral Blade, Bubble Bow, Anchor and Turtle Armor as well as includes more new mobs like Sunken Skeletons and a powerful new enemy, Raid Captains. In addition to this new aquatic content, we also brought in a familiar feature from Vanilla Minecraft – in order to maintain oxygen while swimming, players must swim through streams of air bubbles to refuel and continue their Hidden Depths exploration.
Today is the first day of the Anniversary Event, where players can jump into seasonal trials with special in-game rewards including an event-exclusive cake inspired cape that’s the icing on top of the seasonal trials. The seasonal trials are available until June 8, so hop into the game before the event concludes.
Take the plunge now
Ahoy, landlubbers! No. Nope, that’s terrible. I’m starting the article over again.
Time to jump into the deep end of Minecraft Dungeons with the new Hidden Depths DLC – which conveniently goes live today! A shard from the Orb of Dominance has been wreaking havoc, and it’s up to you to free the tides from the dangerous undertow of corruption. Look, it’s all good to save the Overworld from corruption (and very important work!), but let’s be honest… the loot doesn’t hurt! New weapons, gear, and artifacts are waiting beneath the surface among countless lost treasures.
Of course, there’s also a free update today that provides new content for all Minecraft Dungeons players. Lurking among the mix of new mobs and enemies are Raid Captains, a powerful new enemy! Seek out these Raid Captains and add a new level of challenge to your missions (and more importantly, reap the rewards).
The natural beauty of this DLC may distract you from the dangers of the deep, but the new weapons, gear, and artifacts make sure everything will go swimmingly. If all else fails, at least you’ll still have the Baby Turtle pet. To learn more about these offers and how to get the DLC pack for your platform of choice, visit the Minecraft Dungeons website.
