Teesside, United Kingdom — September 8, 2020 – In partnership with Mojang Studios, developer and publisher Double Eleven today celebrated the release of the Creeping Winter DLC pack, the second update for action-adventure game Minecraft Dungeons, a standalone title from the hugely successful Minecraft franchise. Set as a wintry storm emerges that threatens to consume all it touches, Creeping Winter features brand new environments, missions, enemies, armor, weapons, and artifacts and is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
The Creeping Winter update also comes with the free Camp Update, which includes new villager merchants, a blacksmith that upgrades items, and a gift wrapper for multiplayer trading. Daily Trials are also included in the free portion of the update and offer new challenges every day, making wild changes to the game mechanics which provide difficult, experimental, or fun challenges for you to overcome.
After developing the console editions of Minecraft Dungeons and the Jungle Awakens DLC with Mojang Studios, Double Eleven’s continued role in the development has been centered around DLC content creation, online support and general updates, with the goal of creating the best possible player experience for the community. Thus, Creeping Winter represents the apex of Double Eleven’s collaboration with Mojang Studios, using everything they have learned in their work on the game so far to take on the role of lead developer of this second DLC adventure.
