Mojang has rung in 2022 with free maps for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition on PC, and the latest of the batch has just been revealed. If you fancy celebrating Halloween in January, then this is the one for you.
Why the Halloween comment? Good, the ad explains that you’ll face off against zombies, dogs, and “a gigantic, terrifying stuffed animal with nails in its arm” in the new map titled Grave Danger. This horde of monsters is attacking your castle, so you will need to set up traps and other defenses to protect your base. You can see what it looks like in the trailer below.
Minecraft creative collective Shapescape has put together Grave Danger, aiming to add a twist to typical tower defense gameplay. “There is some tension as you wait for waves of enemies to crash into your defenses,” Shapescape explains. “But if you made a mistake, you can’t fix it. Grave Danger uses traps instead of turrets. We also gave the player an agency during the spawn phase in which he can fight zombies directly. You can download Grave Danger for free on the Minecraft store right now.
Before presenting this freebie, Mojang revealed the map of the Axolotl Islands. This one tasks you with saving the Salamanders from an encroaching group of slimes. It is always currently always free to download for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.
