Minecraft Dungeons is the co-op focused ARPG spin-off of Minecraft, and it wasn’t necessarily taken seriously by hardcore Minecrafters upon release. Fun game mechanics, beautiful graphics, and a steady stream of updates and DLCs like the Howling Peaks DLC have all made Minecraft Dungeons an enjoyable and overall fantastic game for all ARPG fans. Turns out a lot of people agree with that sentiment, as Mojang Studios just revealed that Minecraft Dungeons has surpassed over 10 million players.
Minecraft Dungeons is available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming, and has garnered an impressive following since launch. Those 10 million gamers apparently have:
It’s almost certain that those numbers have been massively boosted by the availability of Minecraft Dungeons through Xbox Game Pass. Still, Minecraft Dungeons has held firm alongside larger releases after nearly a year of existence.
To celebrate, Minecraft Dungeons will give all players a free cosmetic cape and a pet (resembling a baby pig) which will be added to your inventory on February 24, 2021. Coincidentally, this is also the release date of Minecraft Dungeons’ Flames of the Nether DLC and Free Update, which promises to be the most ambitious Minecraft Dungeons update yet. The free update and celebratory cosmetic items are, of course, free, but the Flames of the Nether DLC can be grabbed as part of the Minecraft Dungeons Season Pass.
Minecraft Dungeons is at its best when played with friends, so consider one of the best headsets for Xbox Series X | S to keep in touch with them during the battle.
