What is the Echoing Void DLC for Minecraft Dungeons?

Echoing Void is the sixth DLC expansion for Minecraft Dungeons, and the fourth included in the Minecraft Dungeons Season Pass. Echoing Void follows in the footsteps of Howling Peaks, Flames of the Nether, and Hidden Depths, and is the final chapter in the story following the Arch-Illager and the Orb of Dominance.

Echoing Void takes Minecraft Dungeons to The End, the mysterious and dangerous void that represents the “final” area in Minecraft, and is in some ways “the end” of Minecraft Dungeons. Mojang Studios has teased that Minecraft Dungeons isn’t finished yet, and more is coming in the future, but it’s not ready to talk about it yet.

Minecraft Dungeons heading to The End was first teased alongside other Minecraft Dungeons DLC during Minecraft Live 2020.

When is the release date for the Echoing Void DLC for Minecraft Dungeons?

Minecraft Dungeons Echoing Void officially releases on July 28, 2021 so players won’t have to wait too long.

When it releases, Echoing Void will be available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, PS5, PS4, and Switch, either by purchasing the Minecraft Dungeons Season Pass, Minecraft Dungeons Ultimate Edition, or Echoing Void standalone. You’ll also be able to play Minecraft Dungeons’ Echoing Void DLC through Xbox Cloud Gaming if you purchase it through one of the above means.

The Minecraft Dungeons base game is available through Xbox Game Pass on both consoles and PC, but Echoing Void will not be included. You’ll have to purchase Echoing Void to play it with Minecraft Dungeons through Xbox Game Pass.

What are the features and gameplay in the Echoing Void DLC for Minecraft Dungeons?

Mojang Studios loves to announce its updates and then slowly trickle out information on the road to final release, and it’s no different with the Echoing Void DLC. Right now, we don’t know a ton about what the new DLC will include in terms of features or gameplay, but there’s a bit we can extrapolate from previous releases and the screenshots and images we already have.

Here’s what you need to know about the features and gameplay in the Echoing Void DLC for Minecraft Dungeons.

What locations will there be?

We know that Echoing Void will take place in The End, a dark and foreboding dimension filled with purple-tinted voids, massive fortresses, floating ships, islands of white end stone, and hordes of endermen. It seems Mojang has expectantly adapted this into Minecraft Dungeons with a lot of embellishments like new environments, architecture, decorations, and more. From the few screenshots we have, Echoing Void looks beautiful and haunted, and we can’t wait.

As far as locations are concerned, we’re confident Echoing Void will include at least three levels. There will likely be two main levels and one secret level, following almost every other expansion for Minecraft Dungeons so far. However, this is the final expansion in this chapter of Minecraft Dungeons, so it’s possible Mojang will go bigger (in a similar vein to the Flames of the Nether DLC) and include more levels.

Echoing Void will also include brand-new puzzles to test the skills and creativity of players, so be on your guard when you first play.

What new mobs will we see?

Minecraft Dungeons features a variety of mobs, both hostile and peaceful, which are either existing Minecraft mobs adapted for the game or all-new mobs inspired by Minecraft or the DLC theme. Once again, we don’t know exactly what mobs will appear in Echoing Void, but quite a lot of information has already neem divulged through screenshots and the Echoing Void key art.

Endermen are almost certainly going to feature heavily in Echoing Void as mini-bosses, but it looks like Mojang has created at least four new endermen variants for Echoing Void. In images, we can see a smaller, purple-speckled enderman that appears quite frequently and may end up being the “grunt” mob for Echoing Void.

We can also see a bulky golem-like enderman with massive purple fists, and will likely be a tank-like mob similar to other mobs we’ve seen before. We can see an interesting enderman that trades purple for lime green and appears to have some kind of bump or pod on its back. We don’t know what this variant will do, but it may be a ranged mob or have some special ability.

Finally, we can see an enderman variant that fully embraces the “Slenderman” vibe by being much taller and lankier than the other variants, with what appears to be an Eye of Ender embedded in its chest. We don’t know what this enderman variant will do in Echoing Void, but it certainly looks interesting.

Elsewhere, we can also see returning mobs like pillagers and iceologers, so it seems other kinds of mobs have invaded The End in Echoing Void, which used to be dominated by endermen. Shulkers, which also make their home in The End, can be seen in Echoing Void, too, so be sure to look out for their sneaky long-range projectiles.

Who will be the final boss?

Of course, the final boss at the end of the Echoing Void DLC for Minecraft Dungeons is bound to be on a lot of people’s minds. Many may have expected it to be the terrifying Ender Dragon, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Apparently, the Ender Dragon may already be long-dead in the Minecraft Dungeons universe, and something else has been corrupted by the terrible powers of the Orb of Dominance.

If the key art for Echoing Void teases the final boss like previous expansions doid then it stands to reason players will have to face the nightmare tower depicted in the background. The unnamed creature looks like a horrifying combination between a slime, enderman, and the Redstone Monstrosity, all of which has been set on fire.

We know nothing about this final boss, including its abilities or attack style, but it definitely looks the part. Hopefully, Mojang will tell us more about the final boss in the Echoing Void DLC for Minecraft Dungeons ahead of the official release.

What gear and loot can you collect?

Like with every other Minecraft Dungeons expansion, Echoing Void will include new gear. And, like with most other details of the expansion, we don’t know exactly what will be included. In the images we do have of Echoing Void, however, we can see at least four sets of new armor, a vicious-looking broadsword, a similar-looking bow and crossbow pair, and a set of gorgeous dual-wielded daggers or short swords.

We imagine these are the unique variants of new weapon categories being introduced in Echoing Void. As far as the unique abilities and attributes of this gear are concerned, we’re not really sure.

We also haven’t seen any sign of new artifacts or companions, but there are bound to at least be new artifacts included in the Echoing Void DLC for Minecraft Dungeons.

Is there a free update with the Echoing Void DLC for Minecraft Dungeons?

Every expansion for Minecraft Dungeons so far has also included a free update, which adds new features, quality-of-life improvements, and more for all players, regardless of how they’re playing Minecraft Dungeons and which expansions they own. Echoing Void will continue this trend and feature its own free update. Aside from the usual batch of bug fixes and general changes we’re expecting, it seems the free update coming alongside Echoing Void will include at least two new features.

Firstly, another batch of new enchantments is being added with the free update. We don’t know exactly how many new enchantments are coming or what their effects will be, but we do know of the following enchantments:

  • Ambush
  • Shadow Blast
  • Void Strike

All of these enchantments sound like they’re attack-focused, and may take advantage of End-inspired abilities like how endermen can phase through space, or offer increased damage under certain circumstances (like when attacking an unsuspecting enemy). We’ll likely learn more about these enchantments as we get closer to launch.

Secondly, we know the free update coming alongside the Echoing Void DLC will include a new game mode called “Gauntlet of Gales,” which is seemingly inspired by the Howling Peaks DLC. This game mode will have players solve a variety of complex puzzles and mazes in exchange for exclusive rewards, and offers yet another way to play Minecraft Dungeons outside the usual gameplay loop. It’ll be interesting to see how the Gauntlet of Gales stays relevant over time, and if it succeeds in mixing up Minecraft Dungeons’ gameplay.

If the free update coming to Minecraft Dungeons with Echoing Void includes any other changes or new features, we’ll have to wait to learn about them.

What is Minecraft Dungeons Ultimate Edition?

Minecraft Dungeon’s openinge era is coming to a close, and includes a staggering six DLC expansions filled with new levels and a plethora of content for players to enjoy. For those who haven’t played Minecraft Dungeons or haven’t returned to the action RPG in ages, Mojang Studios is offering a new way to play alongside the release of Echoing Void. Entering the field: Minecraft Dungeons Ultimate Edition.

The Ultimate Edition of Minecraft Dungeons basically does what you’d expect it to do, and includes all previously released content for Minecraft Dungeons. This includes Minecraft Dungeons, the Hero Pass (it may not include the Hero Pass cosmetic items), and the Season Pass in one (apparently) aggressively priced bundle. While this isn’t targeting hardcore Minecraft Dungeons players that already own all the expansions, it could be a great way for more players to experience everything Minecraft Dungeons is offering over a year after its initial release.

Minecraft Dungeons Ultimate Edition officially launches on July 28, 2021 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation, Switch, and PC, and will include:

  • Minecraft Dungeons
  • Jungle Awakens
  • Creeping Winter
  • Howling Peaks
  • Flames of the Nether
  • Hidden Depths
  • Echoing Void

We don’t know exactly how much Minecraft Dungeons Ultimate Edition will cost yet, but Mojang Studios promises it’ll be a more affordable way to access all Minecraft Dungeons content. Considering you can currently play all of Minecraft Dungeons for around $50 without sales, I’d expect the Ultimate Edition to come in at around $40.

Will there be future content for Minecraft Dungeons?

Mojang has made it clear that this concludes the Minecraft Dungeons story, or at least, the Arch-Illager and the Orb of Dominance’s story. While the arrival in The End with Echoing Void may signify the end of the game as a whole, that’s not the case.

From Mojang Studios: “Does that mean it’s over for Minecraft Dungeons? Certainly not — there’s plenty more to come — but one thing at a time!”

It’s not clear if Minecraft Dungeons will being a new story and continue to release expansions like it has been (possibly with a new Season Pass) or if the game intends to go in a new direction entirely, but we do know that Minecraft Dungeons isn’t going anywhere yet. We’ll likely learn more about what the future entails for Minecraft Dungeons after the Echoing Void DLC officially releases.

We’ll keep our eyes peeled for any new information about Minecraft Dungeons and where the game is heading next, and update you accordingly.

Minecraft Dungeons is a great game all around. It’s easily one of the best Xbox Game Pass games and one of the best Xbox Cloud Gaming games, making it one of the best Xbox games in general.
