Minecraft Dungeons celebrating 10 million players

Mojang Studios' Minecraft spin-off from last year, Minecraft Dungeons, has now surpassed the impressive 10 million player milestone less than a year after its launch. The title has seen a healthy number of updates and DLC since its arrival, and the studio is currently preparing to release the next content drop later this month.

The cooperative dungeon crawler released in May 2020 for the PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 promising a different take on the studio's massively popular block-based sensation that is Minecraft. Xbox Game Pass subscribers on PC and Xbox consoles are also a part of this massive 10 million player number, but the studio didn't provide a breakdown on how each platform has fared.

However, Mojang did share some numbers on how the 10-million strong community has spent their time in the game. The Arch-Illager has been defeated 5,934,629 times since the launch of the game, while the Redstone Monstrosity has been taken down 7,044,521, though that's out of 19,511,994 attempts. Players have also spent a combined total of 1141 years in the Camp hub area.

Celebrating the milestone, Mojang is releasing a cape and a pet for all Minecraft Dungeons players for free, which will appear in everyone's inventories on February 24. This is the same day that the new six-mission strong Flames of the Nether DLC will land alongside a hefty base game update. Find details on the DLC pack and the update over here.
