If you’ve enjoyed all that Minecraft Dungeons has to offer, today will be a good day. Mojang Studios is officially releases Minecraft Dungeons Hidden Depths DLC today, which adds a wide array of additional content for gamers to enjoy in this co-op action-RPG adventure. The Hidden Depths DLC for Minecraft Dungeons is the fifth premium expansion of the Minecraft spin-off from Mojang Studios and is now available for Minecraft Dungeons on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, PS5, PS4 and Switch.
Hidden Depths includes three new levels that take place underwater, creating dynamic and beautiful environments for players to explore. Going underwater also presents some unique challenges, such as changes in the physics of arrows and arrows, oxygen levels, and more. On top of that, players will also have to overcome hordes of new types of monsters, including Guardians, Drowned, and additional variations of existing monsters like Sunken Skeletons. Players won’t do it for nothing, as Mojang Studios has added a bunch of powerful gear for you to discover and experience.
Players can purchase the Hidden Depths DLC for Minecraft Dungeons by itself, or you can get the Minecraft Dungeons Season Pass and get the Hidden Depths DLC in addition to Howling Peaks and Flames of the Nether. Either way, you will get the adorable baby turtle cosmetic pet!
There is something here for everyone, however. Minecraft Dungeons is also rolling out a completely free update alongside Hidden Depths, which will add new enchantments, balance changes, and bug fixes, as well as a whole new feature with Raid Captains! These mighty monsters are scattered around the world of Minecraft dungeons, and defeating them will make anything on that level more powerful. If you are successful, however, you will earn some super powerful loot.
Finally, the Minecraft Dungeon Anniversary Event kicks off today, with plenty of seasonal challenges and trials for players. Coming victorious in these trials earns you exclusive gear, including new armor, melee weapon, bow, and cosmetic cloak, all celebrating a year of Minecraft Dungeons.
Minecraft Dungeons and the free update for Hidden Depths are included in Xbox Game Pass for Xbox, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming. If you want to fully enjoy the Hidden Depths experience, get yourself the premium DLC or the Minecraft Dungeons Season Pass. You can also play with a friend who owns Hidden Depths to access all of its content.
In case you’ve been hesitant to give Minecraft Dungeons a try, it’s one of our favorites and one of the best Xbox games around.
