Minecraft Dungeons’ players got some new content to explore in the latest game update that landed in the game this weekend. From now until December 30th, players will be able to access 6 new winter-themed trials featuring new trial modifiers, new loot, and some changes to the game mechanics.

Here’s the official description of  ‘Chills and Thrills’:

“The weather outside might be frightful, but the new Chills and Thrills seasonal event in Minecraft Dungeons is just delightful! Best of all, you won’t even need to put on your snow boots. Unless you want to. Who am I to tell you how to play video games in your own home? 

The chilliest and thrilliest event in Minecraft Dungeons history kicks off today (December 18 for you too snow-struck to check the calendar) and will run through December 30, 2020. The event will have six new winter-themed trials with two new trial modifiers, including a changing number of chests, changing the cooldown on artifacts, and invisible mobs. Invisible mobs? For the sake of my nerves, I’m not going to dwell on that terrifying little tidbit.

And the cherry on top of this stone-cold sundae? There are three unique collectable items as rewards! Slay the snowy fashion game with the Arctic Fox Armor, slice your way through the ice with the Frost Slayer, or cut through chilling winds with the Shivering Bow – each item brings a wintery approach to combat. 

Now all you need to do is jump into Minecraft Dungeons and head to the Seasonal Events where you can access all of the Chills and Thrills trials! What are you waiting for?”

The event is free for everyone who already owns Minecraft Dungeons and seems to be proper fun for this holiday season. It’s accessible through the special Seasonal Events section which was added with the latest Minecraft Dungeons DLC.

In case you missed it, a new Minecraft Dungeons DLC called The Howling Peaks is available for you to check out. We wrote about The Howling Peaks sometime ago, so if you’re interested, be sure to read our previous blog post.
