Minecraft Dungeons DLC FAQ

This article provides information on Minecraft Dungeons' DLC.

Note: If you're buying Minecraft Dungeons DLC off of the Minecraft Dungeons website, please be aware of which version you're buying for. If you have the Windows 7/8 version of the game, only the Windows 7/8 version of the DLC will work. The same applies to the Windows 10 version. A marker on the top left of the DLC's image shows which version it is.


Windows 7 and 8 vs Windows 10

In This Article:

Does the DLC have to be purchased for each platform? 

Each DLC pack must be purchased separately for each platform. Purchasing content on one platform will not grant access on another platform. If you purchased the game for Windows 10 from the Windows Store, be sure to purchase the DLC from there. 

How do I install DLC packs?

Please check out How to Install Downloadable Content and Hero Pass Content for a step-by-step guide on installing downloadable content for your platform.

How do I install game updates?

Please check out How to Update Minecraft Dungeons that will guide you through how to update Minecraft Dungeons on your platform of choice so you can enjoy the latest new features and bug fixes.

Does everyone need to own the DLC 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.

How do I access DLC content missions? Do I have to complete the main story first?

After installing the DLC, head to the Mission Select map in the Camp and navigate and find The Stronghold mission to start your adventure.

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.

Where can I find patch notes for the latest update?

Minecraft Dungeons patch notes can be found at aka.ms/DungeonsUpdate.

Where can I report bugs and post feedback?

Any bugs encountered in Minecraft Dungeons can be reported at aka.ms/DungeonsBugs and all feedback/suggestions can be posted to aka.ms/DungeonsFeedback.

Ancient Hunts

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!

Looking for more details on Ancient Hunts? Check out this in-depth overview over at Minecraft.net.

Gilded Gear

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!

Taking down these dangerous foes will immediately change the way you play the game. Beat them down and they’ll drop one of two tokens: one which instantly increases the mission’s threat level and another which adds a rules modifier to your current mission. Survive the mission with tokens in tow and you’ll earn the Raid Captain’s Bounty, a special reward at the end of the mission. Seek out these Raid Captains and add a new level of challenge to your missions (and more importantly, reap the rewards)!

The Howling Peaks DLC is an action-packed trek to the mountain top that features dazzling new armor, weapons, and artifacts. Of course, new enemies such as the Squall Golem and Mountaineer await you along the way as well – no one said it would be easy! Atop it all is the source of the stormy conflict, the Tempest Golem who has been corrupted by a shard from the Orb of Dominance.

Of course, even if you don’t purchase the Howling Peaks DLC or the Season Pass, there is always new, free content for you to enjoy. With this update you will get six free enchantments, all of which have the potential to totally change the way you play the game!

Minecraft Dungeons Season Pass

Please note that as of 2022, the Season Pass has been delisted from digital stores.
