Get ready to dive into the ocean — the Minecraft Dungeons Hidden Depths DLC has just been announced, and you won't have to wait too long to play it — it's arriving on PC and consoles later this month!

Minecraft Dungeons is an action RPG based on the Minecraft universe. It originally had a couple of pieces of post-launch DLC and that was all players might have expected — that is, of course, until Mojang made the announcement that it was releasing a new season pass with an additional four pieces of DLC. Thus far, we've gotten Howling Peaks and Flames of the Nether; now, the third of four pieces of DLC is on the way.

The Minecraft Dungeons Hidden Depths DLC will take you to the ocean biome. Naturally, there will be plenty of enemies to fight such as Guardians and Drowned. Based on the DLC's image, it looks like there's going to be a fair amount of swimming, as well.

That's not all, though! A new "Raid Captains" feature will debut as part of this DLC. These will be "super challenging new enemies" that will change up the way you typically play the game according to today's announcement. As with other DLC packs, some free content will also be arriving for all players regardless of whether or not they buy this DLC or the season pass.

When is the Minecraft Dungeons Hidden Depths DLC Release Date?

The Minecraft Dungeons Hidden Depths DLC release date will be May 26, 2021, on all platforms. A free update will also arrive for the game on the same day.

There's one more piece of DLC to go before the season pass is done — perhaps Mojang will feel the itch to release another batch of content in the future? For now, there's still plenty of fun to be had; you can buy Minecraft Dungeons for PC and consoles via its official website starting at $19.99 or your regional equivalent. Don't forget that you'll need to buy the DLC separately if you really want to expand your experience!
