Minecraft Dungeons Jungle Awakens DLC Is Out Now
The first DLC pack for Minecraft Dungeons has just dropped, and as the name Jungle Awakens implies, it’s a lush green adventure set in a jungle. As you’d expect there are baddies in the jungle, and you will need to click on slay the baddies in order to complete various tasks and obtain loot. It’s centred around the Orb of Dominance, which was destroyed in the vanilla game, but still holds some power over the jungle for some reason.
Welcome to the jungle! Defeat the terrors hidden among the vines in Jungle Awakens, the first expansion for Minecraft Dungeons.

The trailer for Jungle Awakes above exhibits off lots of the new bits you’ll need to play with. There are pandas, poisonous-looking skeletons, and a few creepy cacti-like creature. To tackle these new challenges, you’ll have new instruments just like the Vine Whip.
To celebrate the release of Jungle Awakens, we’re also adding some extra content to the Minecraft Dungeons base game – free of charge. This content can be downloaded by updating the game and contains:
- A free map: Lower Temple
- A new threat level per difficulty: Unlocks higher-powered gear and additional challenges for the end-game content
- New gear: Battlestaff and Dual Crossbows, plus two unique versions of each of them
- Balance changes to various items
Players who don’t purchase the DLC are being equipped with another new additions just like the Battlestaff and Dual Crossbows. How are you imagined to reload a crossbow if each your palms are—oh nevermind I’m certain it’s cool. All gamers will even have entry to a brand new secret mission known as the Lower Temple as properly.
Unlike the standard base game which is available for free through – the DLC packs cost extra. It’s available now through the Microsoft Store for $5.99. For the PS4 and Switch versions, you’ll buy it through the PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop. If you own the Hero Edition, both DLC packs are already included. By the way, there’s also a second paid DLC planned for later this year. Players will explore frozen peaks in Creeping Winter. Mojang Studios has yet to announce details about that DLC pack.
