On February 8, Minecraft Dungeons, an action adventure game based on the original Minecraft game, crossed 15 million players mark and created a new milestone. To celebrate the occasion, the publishers have announced a new in-game event called Festival of Frost. The event went live yesterday, February 8 and will continue till February 22. But that's not all. As a token of appreciation to all the players, Minecraft will also be giving freebies to everyone who logs in to Minecraft Dungeons after February 8. All the players will receive a free Iceologer cape to decorate their character.
The Minecraft Dungeons game supports consoles like PlayStation, XBox, Nintendo Switch as well as Desktop computers and offers a dungeon crawling styled game where players can fight enemies and collect better gears to get stronger.
