What free content is coming alongside Hidden Depths?
Along with the release of the paid DLC, there is also a free update that will be available with new enchantments and Raid Captains.
Taking down these dangerous foes will immediately change the way you play the game. Beat them down and they’ll drop one of two tokens: one which instantly increases the mission’s threat level and another which adds a rules modifier to your current mission. Survive the mission with tokens in tow and you’ll earn the Raid Captain’s Bounty, a special reward at the end of the mission. Seek out these Raid Captains and add a new level of challenge to your missions (and more importantly, reap the rewards)!
Anniversary Event (May 26 – June 8)
We’re celebrating the first anniversary of the Minecraft Dungeons launch with a special Anniversary Event! Join in-game from May 26 to June 8. Complete the seasonal trials to collect special rewards, including a new melee weapon, ranged weapon, armor, and even a cape.
Two seasonal trials will appear each day on the Mission Select screen. Completion of a trial will grant one of the limited pieces of gear, so you’ll have to play multiple days to collect them all. Complete seven (7) of these trials during the event to unlock a cape for use in Minecraft Dungeons!
The seasonal trials and rewards will only be available until June 8 and cannot be earned after the event has ended so jump in and celebrate on May 26!
