Starting today, December 18th, and running all the way past Christmas until the 30th, the Chills and Thrills event adds six new trials to the game, all themed around the coldest of seasons (er… at least in the Northern Hemisphere). There have also been some changes to the trial modifiers, including different numbers of chests, and tweaks to the artifact cooldowns.
Chills and Thrills also includes a new wintery outfit, new weapons, and apparently, invisible mobs. You know, that thing that happens in winter where monsters turn invisible? Oh, you didn’t know about that? Never mind then. The Arctic Fox armour will let you cosplay as the squeaky little fellows, and the Frost Slayer sword and Shivering Bow will add icy combat to the monster-slaying fun.
Chills and Thrills is available now for all Minecraft Dungeons players, but for players who are interested in even more Dungeons content and don’t mind paying for it, last week also saw the launch of the first DLC in the season pass, Howling Peaks.
