Free Update

That isn’t the only new content coming to the game on September 8th. There will also be a free update, adding two new features to the game. Firstly, there will be new merchants added to the game: the Blacksmith and the Gift Wrapper. You can add these to your camp by finding and saving them whilst you play the game. The Blacksmith will allow you to upgrade items, whilst the Gift Wrapper lets you trade items in multiplayer lobbies. These merchants can also be levelled up, giving them additional stock for you to purchase.

Physical Edition

Finally, the team also announced that Minecraft Dungeons will be releasing in physical format for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. This will be the Hero Edition of the game, including the base game, both DLCs and some unique hero edition cosmetics (like a cape). This will launch everywhere except Japan on September 8th. Japan will receive it later due to production delays.
