Mojang has announced Minecraft Dungeons: Ultimate Edition, a complete collection of the base game and all post-launch content. It's launching on July 28 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC, alongside a brand new expansion known as Echoing Void.
If you've missed out on the game or been holding off for more content, the Ultimate Edition is coming packed with Jungle Awakens, Creeping Winter, Howling Peaks, Flames of the Nether, Hidden Depths, and the latest DLC, Echoing Void. All will be included for a lower price than if purchased separately, although it hasn't been confirmed what the Ultimate Edition will be retailing for as of yet.
As for Echoing Void, it's said "you’ll face bold new enemies, collect legendary gear, and make your way through challenging missions to put a stop to the untold threat". Alongside this paid DLC, another wave of free content will also be included. The Gauntlet of Gales is a brand-new mission set within a maze, which "puts your skills to the test through tricky trials and perplexing puzzles."
Boasting 11.5 million players within the game's first year, Minecraft Dungeons has enjoyed plenty of success since its May 2020 launch. Even with the Ultimate Edition and this latest content, Mojang has said "there’s plenty more to come".
Will you be picking up Minecraft Dungeons: Ultimate Edition? Let us know in the comments below.
I've had a lot of fun with minecraft dungeons. Way more then I expected.
Not played the base game yet but correct me if I’m wrong: this game is extremely successful. What are the chances they actually stop making content for it? At they not just likely to keep on going, meaning, this won’t be the final “ultimate” edition?
Reason I ask is because sounds like it’s a title one should not pick until they are truly ready to sink into it.
@Tharsman I can see it going two ways: One, the game was largely just an experiment, and they've done what they can with the game in its current state and they'll eventually release a sequel with an expanded feature set. Or two, the game is infinitely expandable, in which case the Ultimate Edition will be in name only and they'll just keep it going. My money's on two.
@XxEvilAshxX I mean, the article closes with a quote of them saying “there is plenty more to come.”
Edit: mind you, a sequel would be the perfect place for MS to just declare new games in the IP going forward will be Xbox/Windows/xCloud exclusive.
I play with my son and we like the game alot, despite many bad design choices: DLC levels are too long to replay, Ancient Hunt gear offerings are a pain, and Raid Captain banners make levels unplayable. We play anyway despite the issues, but I hope they keep refining the experience.
