WHAT FREE CONTENT IS INCLUDED COMING ALONGSIDE FLAMES OF THE NETHER?
Along with the release of the paid DLC, there is also a free update now available with several new features.
Ancient Hunts are procedurally-generated end-game missions that weave in and out of the Nether. To access the Ancient Hunts, you’ll need to sacrifice items and Enchantment Points that will change the way your mission unfolds and what sweet loot you’ll receive at the end! If you want that mega-rare and brand-new Gilded gear, you’ll have to take on the Ancient Hunts and defeat the elusive Ancient mobs!

Gilded gear drops are part of the free update as ultra-rare items with an extra Enchantment slot built-in, making them some of the most powerful items in the game. To get these end-game level items, you’ll have to face the Ancient Hunts and travel to the dangerous Nether.
Gold Currency and Piglin Merchant
Would it even be a trip to the Nether without a visit from Minecraft’s favorite pig-headed mobs? Everyone knows these battle-loving mobs are focused on the fight, but there’s one thing they love most of all: gold. Once you get your first piece of gold, the Piglin merchant will set up shop in the mysterious cave that’s popped up near camp. Trade your gold for items, possibly even rare Gilded gear!
A full list of changes is available in the Patch Notes.
HOW DO I ACCESS THE NEW MISSIONS?
While looking at the Mission Select map in the camp, navigate to the Other Dimensions tab to start the Nether missions.
If the content does not appear, ensure that Minecraft Dungeons is updated to the latest version via an internet connection before accessing the new content.
DOES EVERYONE NEED TO OWN THE DLC IN ORDER TO PLAY NEW MISSIONS TOGETHER?
If the host of a game session owns the DLC, players that do not own them can still join the host and play the new missions. All players will still be able to obtain new gear that is dropped, even if they don’t own the DLC. You will need to purchase the DLC if you want to play the new missions in your own game session.
