Minecraft Dungeons’ is tied together with a central Camp, where you can trade Emeralds for random loot with villagers, and sort out your gear, and select which missions to undertake with your pals. The Camp area is suspiciously big. Indeed, searching around the area, you can find a few hidden chests and things like that.
As we get deeper into the game, we’ve started uncovering all sorts of crazy secrets that are truly, truly hidden, without any hints or waypoints. Every now and then, I’ve been able to find secret doors and hidden switches by searching around. Some require rolling off ledges that look as though they will kill you, but sometimes fortune favors the brave.
After some crazy parkour skills in the Camp, you can access a hall which features pixel-style artwork of the Minecraft Dungeons’ dev team. However, there’s also a painting you can interact with, giving you hints to a collection of runes you can find that grant access to a special Diablo 2-tribute level. Yes. It is the cow level.
Simply titled “Moo?” the level is populated by lovable Mooshroom cows, which spawn in Minecraft‘s famed Mushroom Fields biome. The level is a tribute to the infamous Cow level from Diablo II. Awesome.
We’re still working out the full list of steps to access the Cow level for ourselves, but a big shoutout to Lords of Gaming for finding it first. We’ll have a full guide up on how to access it as soon as possible, but you may want to work it out for yourself, it’d be far more fun!
Minecraft Dungeons is a far larger game than some reviews might have you believe, with piles of secrets and a rewarding loot-oriented gameplay loop that fans of classic ARPGs should enjoy. And if you’ll excuse me, I have loot to go and grind.
