Minecraft Dungeons

Mojang Studios has issued a new update for Minecraft Dungeons. The main highlight is adding support for the Spookier Fall 2021 event, but also includes changes and fixes.

Below are the full patch notes for the Minecraft Dungeons update:

Minecraft Dungeons is continuing its support with the Spookier Fall 2021 event, which has just gone live. This was first seen in the game last year as simply “Spooky Fall”.

According to Mojang Studios, the event has “heart-pounding seasonal trials, cursed rewards, and monstrous mobs ready to scare the creeper out of you”. You’ll want to participate in order to claim unique and seasonal-exclusive items. Players can get their hands on the Cackling Broom, the Phantom Bow, and the Spooky Gourdian armor set just in time for Halloween.

Here’s a trailer that offers up a look at what players can expect from the event:

Earlier today, it was announced that Minecraft Dungeons would be featured as the next Nintendo Switch Online Game Trial in Europe. We now have confirmation that the same offer will be extended to North America as well.

Minecraft Dungeons can be played for free with an active subscription starting on August 18 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Any progress made can be transferred to the full version. The trial will end on August 24 at 11:59 PM PT / August 25 at 2:59 AM ET.
