Minecraft Dungeons Is Getting Spooky

Minecraft Dungeons is rolling out a new update on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch today.

As you would imagine, this latest patch for the game is introducing a whole host of new content, not to mention, plenty of bug fixes since the games 1.4.3.0 update on September 8.

For those who like to keep track, the new update brings Minecraft Dungeons up to Update 1.5.0.0. and requires 532 MB to download on the PS4 (we've no news on other platforms just yet).

Added underneath are the official patch notes for anyone who likes to check all the nitty-gritty tweaks made by the team at Mojang.

However for anyone who wants a quick overview, here it is.

Update 1.5.0.0. has added the limited time 'Spooky Fall Event', plus new threat levels with Apocalypse Plus, and "a variety of changes and fixes".

As always, the team at Mojang would appreciate it if you would report any bugs you encounter to bugs.mojang.com. So do them a solid if you spot any.

Spooky Fall Event:

  • The prizes for surviving these supernatural trials will be ultra-exclusive gear and weapons that are a must-have for this spooky season
  • Make sure you join in the frightful festivities before time is up!

Apocalypse Plus:

  • Can you face the meanest of mobs without breaking a sweat? Then the new Apocalypse Plus feature is for you!
  • Apocalypse Plus brings a harder difficulty mode than ever before, but it doesn't stop there – it also comes with twenty increasingly challenging levels
  • This new feature doesn't change the game you know and love but adds a whole new dimension of difficulty for those who want an extra challenge. Try Apocalypse Plus for yourself, but don't say we didn't warn you!
