Minecraft Dungeons will get a free update that adds cross-play in November 2020, while the Howling Peaks DLC, Season Pass, and the Apocalypse Plus difficulty will be added in December.
Revealed at Minecraft Live 2020, Minecraft Dungeons will allow the Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions to all play together. Unfortunately, cross-save is still not supported.
Hello there hero, adventure calls once again! Dangerous mobs, new gear, and the power of the wind itself, all await you atop perilous peaks!
Howling Peaks DLC arrives in December – it’s nearly time to trek to the top!

The Howling Peaks DLC will feature a new boss, the Tempest Golem, who can conjure up “howling winds” to make your life just that much more difficult.
Speaking of difficulty, Apocalypse Plus will add 20 new difficulties after Apocalypse VII, and it “increases the characters’ power ceiling, and adds new enchantments and items.”
This news arrived alongside the reveal that Minecraft characters, including Steve, Alex, Zombie, and Enderman, will be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as fighters on October 13, 2020, and that Minecraft will get its Caves and Cliffs update in Summer 2021.

In our review of Minecraft Dungeons, we said it “is a beautiful and fun dungeon crawler with a simple but tried-and-true set of systems in place. It plays it extremely safe, though, without bringing anything mining or crafting spins to the genre to accompany Minecraft’s signature look and feel. Still, it’s just so damn charming, and so fun, it’s hard to fault it for going the safe route.”
