Yes, the first of the upcoming themed events will be called Cloudy Climb, and will feature a new progression system, weekly challenges and a procedurally-generated tower that changes its form when you least expect it. The best part? It’ll be completely free to those who purchased the game.

Feel free to take a gander at the new launch date reveal video down below:

As you can see in the footage above, the blocky dungeon-crawler will also be getting quite a few additional knick-knacks. Specifically, there’ll be a bunch of new pets, emotes and flairs added into the mix, too.

Our very own Chris Jecks reviewed Minecraft Dungeons on PC when it launched back in May of last year, and enjoyed his time with the game, ultimately awarding it a 3.5/5, concluding:

Minecraft Dungeons is undoubtedly entertaining, and despite all my gripes I find myself being pulled back in, drawn to take on ever-more difficult challenges as I grind toward better gear. In particular, I’m eagerly awaiting my friends to join me. It’s just a shame there isn’t more content for us all to dive into together when the time comes.

Thankfully, with these impending Seasonal Adventures in the pipeline, our criticisms about a lack of content may have finally been ameliorated.

For more information about Cloudy Climb, here’s an official description courtesy of Mojang games:

Toot the hype horns! Play a tune on the anticipation accordion! Collect yourself and read every word in this article! There’s a windy announcement to be shared, and it’s all about Cloudy Climb. 

Not the type of cloudy climb that is my getting-out-of-bed-half-asleep-every-morning challenge, but Minecraft Dungeons’ first Seasonal Adventure. At Minecraft Live, we shared some information about what is to come, and today, we’re excited to announce that this free update will launch on December 14. Yay!

There’s plenty of reason to be excited! Cloudy Climb will introduce new, free content that includes an all-new progression system, weekly challenges, and a looming tower that – whether you like it or not – loves to rearrange itself whenever it gets an opportunity. Typical procedurally generated tower behavior, but also the perfect place to test your skills and to acquire Adventure Points!  

Adventure Points allows you unlock seasonal rewards such as adorable pets, dazzling capes, colorful flairs, and entertaining emotes that offer new ways of communicating with your fellow players. I for one plan to be the cringiest member of my party and dab emote to my heart’s content. If it’s there, why not use it? 

And for those of you who simply can’t get enough of these rewards, there’s a second, premium reward track with additional goodies, which can be unlocked by purchasing the Adventure Pass. These rewards have no impact on gameplay, but boy do they look shiny! Er, well, unless you plan on using the Ender skin.
