Minecraft Dungeons will get its upcoming Howling Peaks DLC next month, as detailed in a blog post. Alongside the release of Howling Peaks, Minecraft Dungeons is getting another season pass as well, which gets you access to the game's next four DLC expansions at a discounted price.

As its name implies, the Howling Peaks DLC adds a brand-new mountain area for you to dungeon crawl to the top of. The area presents new enemies to fight, such as the Squall Golem and Mountaineer, as well as additional armor, weapons, and artifacts to discover. If you manage to reach the peak, there's a new boss for you to defeat too: the Tempest Golem. The Howling Peaks will be available on December 9.

The Howling Peaks is the first of four DLCs included in Minecraft Dungeons' second season pass. Like Howling Peaks, each of Minecraft Dungeons' upcoming DLC expansions will add new levels, items, puzzles, and story. Like the two DLCs included in the first season pass, you'll be able to purchase each of these next four DLCs individually if you prefer, but again, the season pass nets you all four at a cheaper price.

Regardless of whether you buy into these upcoming expansions, Minecraft Dungeons players have more content to look forward to. Free content will continue to trickle into the game alongside the paid DLC, such as six free enchantments that will be added alongside the Howling Peaks.

In GameSpot's Minecraft Dungeons review, Steve Watts wrote, "Minecraft Dungeons is missing conspicuous parts of what gave the namesake its identity--most noticeably, breaking through walls to explore underground caverns and using the found materials to craft. But because it's such a successful departure from its predecessor, Dungeons shows how flexible the franchise has become. Rather than shift our expectations of what games can be, it's banking on its own popularity to introduce younger players to a classic genre and serves as a short-but-sweet treat for looter vets. It scratches the dungeon-crawler itch with a sense of goofy charm and expands what Minecraft can be."
