A new ocean-themed DLC for Mojang's Minecraft Dungeons has been unveiled, along with a release date.

The Hidden Depths DLC will be released in two weeks time, on 26 May, the first anniversary of the game's release. It was originally shown during last year's MINECON livestream.

Hidden Depths will be the third DLC for the game's paid Season Pass, and the fifth DLC released in total. DLC is released for Dungeons every three months or so.

In this new DLC, players will have to fight a spreading corruption that has reached the darkest depths of the ocean, says Mojang. The DLC includes all aquatic creatures from Minecraft as well as some new mobs, such as the tropical slime and sunken skeleton, as well as an elder guardian boss.

Alongside this release, a new feature is coming to Dungeons: raid captains. These are challenging enemies that hide in various areas of the world. When killed, they provide useful bits of treasure. Also being added are new item enchantments and new game levels.

Minecraft Dungeons is available for Windows, Xbox, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. The Standard Edition is US$20 while the Hero Edition (which includes the Hero Pass DLC) is US$30.
