At the time it was announced, Majong had disclosed a July 2020 release time slot for Jungle Awakens. Today the video game developer assigned an exact date of July 1, 2020, for the upcoming Minecraft Dungeons expansion pack.
Sweat drips down your brow. A wall of vines blocks your path. A distant rumble of something stirring deep in the undergrowth.— Minecraft Dungeons (@dungeonsgame) June 26, 2020
