Minecraft Dungeons launches on May 26 as part of Xbox Game Pass and on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. It takes an old-school approach to action RPG gameplay, focusing entirely on the gear grind as you ascend increasingly difficult tiers filled with swarms of gradually more powerful mobs.
As we get deeper and deeper into the endgame, not only are we discovering some insane weapons and armor with cool intersecting effects, but we’re finding more and more hidden levels and secrets. Initially, we thought the game only had two hidden levels, but as of writing we have now found four, and our friends at Lords of Gaming have now found a fifth, and it’s one level Diablo fans will love.
Warning: Don’t read if you want to avoid spoilers!
As we get deeper into the game, we’ve started uncovering all sorts of crazy secrets that are truly, truly hidden, without any hints or waypoints. Every now and then, I’ve been able to find secret doors and hidden switches by searching around. Some require rolling off ledges that look as though they will kill you, but sometimes fortune favors the brave.
After some crazy parkour skills in the Camp, you can access a hall which features pixel-style artwork of the Minecraft Dungeons’ dev team. However, there’s also a painting you can interact with, giving you hints to a collection of runes you can find that grant access to a special Diablo 2-tribute level. Yes. It is the cow level.
We’re still working out the full list of steps to access the Cow level for ourselves, but a big shoutout to Lords of Gaming for finding it first. We’ll have a full guide up on how to access it as soon as possible, but you may want to work it out for yourself, it’d be far more fun!
Minecraft Dungeons is a far larger game than some reviews might have you believe, with piles of secrets and a rewarding loot-oriented gameplay loop that fans of classic ARPGs should enjoy. And if you’ll excuse me, I have loot to go and grind.
