|— Hidden Depths Game Files|
|— In-game pre-purchase description|
The Hidden Depths is a paid DLC for Minecraft Dungeons released on May 26, 2021, the first year anniversary of Minecraft Dungeons. It is the fifth DLC in Minecraft Dungeons, and takes place in an ocean biome. Showcased at Minecraft Live 2020, it is the third Season Pass DLC after Howling Peaks and Flames of the Nether.
The Hidden Depths take place underwater, around a small group of islands. Underneath the largest island is a ridge filled with a coral reefs and a shipwreck, on the west and deeper below is an ocean monument that harbors an ancient guardian, and on the east is an underwater volcano surrounded by lava, glowing lanterns, and a large fossil. The missions in the Hidden Depths are huge when compared to other missions, with about fifteen secrets in the Coral Rise alone. There is a cutscene in the abyssal monument in which the ancient guardian breaks through its own lair, and starts the boss fight. It is one of the only boss fights with a cutscene, apart from the Vengeful Heart of Ender, however this cutscene is not a separate movie (like this two), rather than is directly within the mission.
The following is included in this DLC pack:
|Bubble Trouble||Feeling Bubbly||Glow and Behold||Gone Fishin'||Iceologer's Revenge||Lost Power||Save Your Breath||Seafood Skewer||Turn the Tide|
