New Missions

Creeping Winter will add 3 new missions in the game and it might be like the Jungle Awakens missions where there are 2 main missions and 1 secret mission.

New Mobs and Boss

The banner for Creeping Winter shows some mobs that weren't on the base game or Jungle Awakens DLC, which might probably be introduced along with the Creeping Winter DLC.

Frost Wraith (?)


One of the most noticeable enemies is the floating mob that looks like the Wraith encountered in the base game except it's icy now. This might also be the main boss of the DLC since it is wearing a crown with a menacing aura.

Frost Zombie (?)

Zombies covered in snow can be found everywhere on the banner which hints zombies that can inflict effects like Chilling on hit.

Ice Evoker (?)


Enough with the "Frost" names. This one looks like the Evoker from the base game but is now "Winter-y" and might summon frost familiars and icy spikes instead.

Arctic Wolf (?)

Looking harmless and possibly passive mobs, Arctic wolves are also seen in the banner and might behave the same as the Ocelots from the Jungle Awakens and attack other enemies. Kinda cute, too.

New Gear and Artifact

Expect all-new weapons and armors included that matches the theme of the DLC. Also, one of the characters in the banner is holding something that looks like a Frost Wand which may be a new artifact.
