Mojang Studios has announced that the first DLC release for Minecraft Dungeons is coming in July, which is titled Jungle Awakens. It adds three missions and has players entering a jungle to fight “a mysterious power”. “To defeat the terrors hidden among the vines, you’ll have new weapons, armor, and artifacts at your disposal,” Mojang says.

Later in 2020, players will be able to get their hands on the Creeping Winter DLC. No information has been shared about its contents at this time.

Mojang also reconfirmed plans to add cross-play. Free content is in the works as well.

During an interview with IGN’s Unlocked podcast, Xbox boss Phil Spencer addressed the situation. Spencer seemed to damper expectations a bit, noting that some of the Switch releases were pushed by the developers and the company doesn’t want consumers to be wondering as to which platforms all of its titles could end up.

Spencer’s full words:

The action-adventure game Minecraft Dungeons has finally secured a release date. The game will launch on May 26, Xbox Game Studios and Mojang announced today.

Previously, Minecraft Dungeons was targeted for April. But fans were warned that there could be a delay as the team’s workflows were impacted from the coronavirus.
