Minecraft Dungeons Patch Notes: Update 1.28

Here are the official patch notes for Minecraft Dungeons Update 1.28 that is now rolling out to all the supported platforms of the game:

Tower Multiplayer:

The Tower is expanding – both when it comes to the variety of floors you can encounter, and the number of players in a run! Fauna Faire’s new Tower multiplayer mode supports four players and puts bigger focus on team collaboration in order to overcome threats as you ascend to the top.

  • Up to 4 players can join in online multiplayer or up to 4 players in local multiplayer
  • Players have a shared pool of lives during a Tower run
  • Difficulty scales based on the number of players with increased mob health and mob count

There are also improvements to the Tower, whether playing singleplayer or multiplayer:

  • New Tower floors featuring Cacti Canyon, Windswept Peaks, and Broken Citadel
  • New floors have been added to various Towers which add the Ancient Guardian and Tempest Golem!

Treetop Tangle:

Located somewhere deep within the lush forests of the Jungle Island, Treetop Tangle is a new free mission to explore together with like-minded adventurers. Players who come here will have to prepare themselves for a long climb up a giant tree if they want to discover its secrets. The journey will surely be challenging, but possibly also rewarding as the mission is said to contain some previously undiscovered pieces of gear…

Find the mission in the Island Realms on the mission select screen, even if you don’t own the Jungle Awakens DLC.

New gear to find:

  • Totem of Casting
  • Root Rot Armor
  • Black Spot Armor (Unique)


The rumors of a new merchant villager lurking somewhere on the outskirts of the camp were true! The Enchantsmith has arrived just in time for the faire and has set up shop eight o’clock of the Adventure Hub (that’s southwest for all you non-clock navigators).

  • Utilize their craftmanship to re-roll enchantments on your favorite pieces of gear!
  • Each roll on a single piece of gear increases the cost with Gold
  • The Enchantsmith can be unlocked by rescuing the merchant in Highblock Halls

Random Mission:

A new button has been added to the mission select screen that sends players into a random mission, gaining an additional boost in Adventure Points upon completion of the mission. This feature is available for players that have completed Obsidian Pinnacle on Default difficulty.

Seasonal Adventure:

Fauna Faire brings an animal-focused late summer to the camp. This means there will be an abundance of furr-tastic skins, pets, and other mob-themed cosmetic items to add to your closet. Whether you want to embrace your inner chicken or show off your mighty paw-er, there’s something for everyone. And just as with previous seasonal adventures, Fauna Faire offers two reward tracks – one free and one Adventure Pass track.

The active season can be changed in the Adventure Hub so you can still earn rank and rewards from Seasons 1 and 2. Setting the season in the Adventure Hub will make all Adventure Points go toward ranking up in the selected season!
