Minecraft Dungeons (opens in new tab) will receive two DLCs as part of its Hero Pass, and the first of them has been revealed on the Mojang blog (opens in new tab). Called Jungle Awakens, it's a three-mission adventure set, yes, in the jungle. New weapons, armor, and artifacts will all be included as well as new enemies like the leapleaf, poison quill vine, and jungle zombie. It's due in July.

The second DLC hasn't got a date yet, but it's called Creeping Winter and will be released later this year. All this information matches a leak from a week ago (opens in new tab), which included screenshots of Creeping Winter featuring a polar bear as well as some cold and unhappy zombies and creepers.

As well as the DLC, Mojang are working on patching in cross-platform functionality and some "cool new free content".

Our reviewer enjoyed Minecraft Dungeons (opens in new tab), summing it up as "the perfect introduction to dungeon crawlers for beginners and a breezy adventure for veterans. It doesn't have anything in particular that makes it stand out, but it's a fun, streamlined take on the dungeon crawl genre."
