Alongside “most ambitious free update” yet.
Minecraft Dungeons, developer Mojang’s enjoyable co-operative dungeon-crawler spin-off, will recieve its fourth paid DLC update – titled Flames of the Nether – later this month on 24th February.
Details on the new DLC are still a little slight, but Mojang says Flames of the Nether, which leads players on on journey to the heart of Minecraft’s iconic otherworld, will feature six new missions across “familiar biomes as you’ve never seen before”. There’s also promise of new artefacts, weapons, and gear to acquire along the way, plus two new skins and an “adorable” Baby Ghast.
Flames of the Nether – which follows on from previous DLC offerings Jungle Awakens, Creeping Winter, and Howling Peaks – is the second paid content update to be released as part of Minecraft Dungeons’ £16.74 Season Pass, but will also be available to purchase separately when it launches on 24th February. It’ll likely cost £4.99 if previous DLC pricing is any indication.
