Minecraft Dungeons DLC Welcomes You to The Jungle

Minecraft Dungeons' first DLC pack, Jungle Awakens, launches this summer with new mobs, gear, and more.

Minecraft Dungeons just launched this week, and while we're enjoying it quite a bit, we can't say the idea of new Minecraft Dungeons content doesn't intrigue us. Fortunately, we won't have long to wait for more because Minecraft Dungeons' first DLC pack, Jungle Awakens, is out in July.

The news comes from an update Mojang posted on the official Minecraft website.

There's no solid release date yet for Jungle Awakens, but it's the first of two planned DLC expansions for this year; the second is Creeping Winter, which is out sometime later this year.

Jungle Awakens brings with it an entirely new environment — a jungle, obviously — and three new missions. On top of that is a wealth of new items, gear, and artifacts to enhance your party.

Mojang briefly mentioned some of the new enemies we can expect to find in Jungle Awakens too: the Leapleaf, Jungle Zombie, and Poison Quill Vine. They're apparently pretty aggressive, so Mojang says you'll need to make sure your gear and party are in good order before heading into the jungle.

The full announcement is on the Minecraft website, where Mojang also says plans for Minecraft Dungeons cross-play are still proceeding smoothly.

We've still got a little while to wait until Minecraft Dungeons' Jungle Awakens DLC launches in July, but that gives you plenty of time to brush up on your dungeon-crawling skills with our Minecraft Dungeons guides. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Minecraft Dungeons news as it develops.
