Minecraft Dungeons: Cross-Play, Howling Peaks DLC and Apocalypse Plus Difficulty coming in 2020

Minecraft Dungeons will receive a free update that adds crossplay in November 2020, while Howling Peaks DLC, Season Pass, and 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 to play together. Unfortunately, cross-save is still not supported.

The Howling Peaks DLC will feature a new boss, the Tempest Golem, who can conjure “howling winds” to make your life even harder.

Speaking of difficulty, Apocalypse Plus will add 20 new difficulties after Apocalypse VII, and it “increases the character power cap and adds new enchantments and items.”

This news came 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 Minecraft will receive its Caves and Cliffs in the summer of 2021. .
