It looks like the next Minecraft Dungeons DLC might be going to the Nether, building on some earlier footage shown at Minecon Live late last year.
Minecraft Dungeons is an action RPG set in the Minecraft universe. Thus far, the game has had two pieces of post-launch content. These proved so popular that the developers released a third DLC; critically, this third DLC was to be the first of four new DLCs arriving as part of the game's Season Pass.
Unfortunately, we didn't get much in the way of news for what the rest of the Season Pass would feature beyond the Howling Peaks DLC. Now, it looks like the next Minecraft Dungeons DLC might be going to the Nether judging by a tweet from the game's official account.
Well, hello there! Now, who are you lot?— Minecraft Dungeons (@dungeonsgame) February 5, 2021
The above image shows three Piglins standing in the new Warped Forest biome in the Nether; this biome was added to the Java Edition of Minecraft as part of its Nether Update.
The Nether coming to Minecraft Dungeons isn't exactly new news, mind; this otherworldly location was teased during Minecraft Live back in October 2020. However, the timing of this teaser is especially curious — it may very well mean that the Nether is going to be the focus of the game's next big DLC pack.
When is the Minecraft Dungeons Nether DLC Release Date?
Despite this teaser, there is not yet a release date for a Minecraft Dungeons Nether DLC, much less an official confirmation of a DLC focusing on the Nether as far as I can tell. However, we can speculate on the launch based on past updates:
- Jungle Awakens release date – July 1, 2020
- Creeping Winter release date – September 8, 2020
- Howling Peaks release date – December 9, 2020
As you can see from the past releases, a new piece of DLC launches roughly every 2–3 months. That means that there are pretty good chances we'll get more news about the next Minecraft Dungeons DLC sometime in the next few weeks, with March being most likely to fit the Seasonal release schedule. For now, you can enjoy all of the game's great content by buying Minecraft Dungeons via its official website starting at $19.99 or your regional equivalent.
