    It's finally time! As I've teased so many times over the last couple days, here it is: THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

    Well, what is it? It's right HERE: Dungeons 2.0!

    Dungeons is getting its very own standalone game called "Dungeons & Heroes" (provisional name), which works very much like the Minecraft version: You create your own dungeon and attack other players' dungeons!

    But instead of having this post be just a huge wall of text like every other news post, here are some images from the game as it looks right now:

    A singleplayer-only demo version of Dungeons & Heroes is scheduled to be released in July 2018, so you can get a feel for the mechanics in this new game! A public beta version featuring a fully playable singleplayer campaign, as well as an online multiplayer mode is expected to launch near the end of 2018.

    In addition to what you know from the Minecraft game mode, Dungeons & Heroes will feature the following things:

    LOADS of Minions

    The minions you see in the screenshots are only a fraction of the amount of minions that'll end up being in the actual game. They all have some super interesting and intriguing mechanics as well! Here are some examples:
    • Rat Grunt (Poisonous): When the enemy hero is hit, they take 20% increased damage for a short time.
    • Speedy Rat: When this minion is damaged below 50% health, increase its attack & movement speed.
    • Reaper: When this minion engages in combat, destroy up to two nearby minions with 5 or less health, and gain +5 health for each minion consumed.
    • Cyclops Wizard: Periodically summon two bats to attack the enemy hero.
    • Shadow Rat: When not attacking the enemy hero, this minion enters stealth and cannot be targeted.
    And one more thing about minions: There will be BOSSES! And some of them even have some super special effects like this one:
    • (boss name secret): At the start of the game, if your dungeon has no traps, increase all your minions' health by 50%.
    LOADS of Traps

    This one will be a feature exclusive to the standalone version. In addition to minions that can be killed by the attacker, you can put permanent traps into your dungeon to further hinder their progress! Traps range from flamethrowers to spikes on the ground, to some really wonky electrical shenanigans. You name it!

    Traps are really useful in forcing the attacker into uncomfortable situations, and are extremely deadly when combined with strong minions!

    Dungeons & Heroes Celebratory Mythic Survival Update

    In order to celebrate the announcement of Dungeons & Heroes, Mythic Survival will receive a special update in the coming days, which introduces a few new special items:
    • Ancient Artifact: New rare item. Right Click: Receive a random special item. The item received is based on what a chest would contain if an ELITE player opened it with maximum bounty.
    • Mystic Scrambler: Now also works with mythic items. (converts them to a random legendary)
    • Steel Miner: New mythic item. Efficiency X, Fortune X, Unbreakable diamond pickaxe. Monster spawners that are mined with this pickaxe drop as regular blocks. This item won't be obtainable just yet, but will make its way into the game soon! (probably with the upcoming underworld update, oh crap I said too much)
    • Shadow Archer's Bow: New mythic item. When hitting an enemy, you teleport to their location. This one won't be obtainable just yet either, but will be made accessible as soon as the Steel Miner is available!
    • Garthodos' Treasure: New mythic item. While equipped, you gain the ability to fly while out of combat. Awarded for opening 5,000 chests on Mythic Survival. You will automatically find this item in your 5,000th chest, and every other 5,000th chest you open thereafter, so if you lose it or give it away, you're guaranteed to get another one soon!*
    *the 5,000 chest counter starts as soon as the update is released, so chests you have already opened won't count towards it. Chests don't have to contain a special item in order to count.

    In addition to those items, Mythic Survival will have the drop rates of rare & epic items slightly adjusted to make them a little more common. This should balance out the amount of useful items players can find, and the amount of walking sticks that appear in any given chest.


    The celebratory update is scheduled to release TOMORROW! That is: Sunday, April 15th of 2018!!

    I hope you guys are as excited about this as I am. See you on the servers! (and soon, in Dungeons & Heroes??!)
