As of this month, Minecraft Dungeons is well beyond the one-year mark since the title’s initial release. However, developer Mojang Studios has introduced some exciting additions to the game since. For one, the most recent update welcomed cloud saves to the game which by extension offers cross-save for players looking to experience their game on a separate platform. Also, cross-platform play was introduced not too long before that either.
Lately, Mojang Studios is still occupied with the recent Cliffs & Caves Update for Minecraft. Currently, the title update is to ship in two parts throughout the course of 2021. Atop of that, promised Archeology feature was delayed into 2022 as well. This past June, Mojang Studios welcomed the first half of the update which includes blocks and mobs. World generation is to be featured in the latter addition later on.
In a new announcement, Mojang Studios reveals the next expansion for Minecraft Dungeons, Echoing Void. While the last expansion welcomed a new setting in the Nether, this add-on branches further into The End.
In the Echoing Void DLC, you’ll face bold new enemies, collect legendary gear, and make your way through challenging missions to put a stop to the untold threats (emphasis on plural) that lurk in the dark dimension in which Endermen reside. Are you thrilled? Excited? Maybe even a bit ecstatic? Good, because there’s more!
Just as with our previous adventures, we’re bringing a free content update alongside the Echoing Void release! Besides the addition of a handful of powerful enchantments such as Ambush, Shadow Blast, and Void Strike, we’re also introducing Gauntlet of Gales – a unique maze-like mission that puts your skills to the test through tricky trials and perplexing puzzles! This gauntlet can be accessed through your mission map and contains challenges that require everything from wit and cunning to endurance and determination.
Additionally, Mojang Studios also welcomes Minecraft Dungeons: Ultimate Edition. “The superlative way to experience the complete story of the Arch-Illager and the Orb of Dominance,” Per Landin, Mojang Studios Creative Communications Assistant shares. “This action-packed package includes the base game and all six DLCs: Jungle Awakens, Creeping Winter, Howling Peaks, Flames of the Nether, Hidden Depths, and Echoing Void – all at a lower price than if purchased separately.”
While Minecraft Dungeons continues to expand in its own rights, the game also shares to be a shining example for success on xCloud. In a previous report from Windows Central, Mojang Studios explains the open window that the game shot for being the first to implement touch screen controls. The decision resulted with a 40 percent influx of users that used the feature exclusively. You can read the full report by heading here.
