UPDATE: Developers Mojang has revealed that some players were given early access to the Minecraft Dungeons DLC and free update before their planned release date on July 1, 2020.

For everyone else in the UK, the next Minecraft Dungeons update will go live at 6am BST on July 1.

This will be followed by the Minecraft Dungeons Jungle Awakens DLC release time, which has been set for 8am BST on July 1 in the UK, and at 12am PDT the same day in the United States.

A message from Mojang adds: “It looks like the latest update and Jungle Awakens DLC has gone out a bit early on some platforms.

“If you aren’t seeing the update yet, this is normal. In addition to the Jungle Awakens DLC, there is a free update with a load of bug fixes, balance changes, and a new unlockable secret mission called Lower Temple.”

ORIGINAL: A big Minecraft Dungeons update has arrived today and it appears that some players may have gotten early access to new content. Developers Mojang confirmed last week that they would be adding new content on July 1 through the new Jungle Awakens DLC. They also confirmed that a free Minecraft Dungeons update would also be going live, bringing the Lower Temple dungeon, some new items, and a few game balancing changes.

Some players are reporting they have access to this new Minecraft update, along with new content today.

However, others are reporting only receiving the update, without any other changes noted.

“When I click it (Ender Pearl), it takes me to another map,” one Minecraft gamer reports.

“This new map has two DLCs, the Winter one and the Jungle one. The Winter one is still not out yet. But Jungle Awakens is playable for me. I’m on PC.”

Another adds: “I mean I am already playing it and it’s out. Update your game and it’ll show you news on the main screen saying the DLC is available to play.”

It’s unclear if this is some kind of glitch or part of Mojang’s plans to launch the latest free and paid content into Minecraft Dungeons.

The official Minecraft Dungeons Jungle Awakens DLC release date has been set for Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

But anyone who has been waiting for the new Minecraft Dungeons expansion may want to check and see if anything has changed on their chosen platform.

Everyone who owns the game will get access to the Lost Temple Dungeon, while those who own the Hero Editions, or Pass, will get automatic access to the new DLC content.

A message from Mojang adds: “For those of you who already bought the Hero Edition, all of this is included! Don’t worry, you can always upgrade your standard game with the Hero Pass.

“Jungle Awakens will be released on July 1, so get ready to battle new mobs such as the Leapleaf and Whisperer before ultimately saving the day by defeating the Jungle Abomination.”

And commenting on the free update, Mojang provided an early teaser, telling fans this week:

“One thing they did add was more shrubbery, vines, and humidity. Foliage as far as the eye can see.

“Oh, and a bunch of new weapons, armors, artifacts, and mobs. And three new story missions! Aaaand a free update, which includes the Lost Temple dungeon, some new items, and a few game balancing changes. Phew! I’m out of breath and I haven’t even gotten to the pandas yet.”

According to Microsoft, there are two DLC expansions planned for Minecraft Dungeons, following the game’s successful release earlier this year.

Minecraft Dungeons is also playable through the Xbox Game Pass, which provides a library of games that you can download and play.

Unlike Project xCloud, which is a new streaming service in beta, the Xbox Game Pass allows you to install the titles you want, rather than having to use a constant internet connection.
