Regal blob King Slime has escaped the world of Terraria and will be invading the underground caverns of Core Keeper in an exciting new crossover content update available to download next Monday, September 26th.
Available as a free content update for Core Keeper, King Slime squelches into the game as a new in-game boss that can be spawned by placing a particular royal accessory onto Glurch’s summoning circle. Battling King Slime may be a challenge, but it could definitely be worth your while: rumour has it that by defeating King Slime, players will score some exciting new loot that is sure to make them the envy of their fellow explorers.
And that’s not all for Core Keeper and Terraria fans. Available in Terraria’s upcoming 1.4.4 update, a new Caveling pet – the friendly Caveling Farmer – can be summoned to follow your Terraria character throughout their adventure and offer a little moral support wherever you go. Once the update launches, Terraria players will be able to summon the Caveling Farmer into their game by using a special item that they’ll also recognise from Core Keeper.
“While we aren’t sure of his intentions, we’re incredibly excited to welcome King Slime into the world of Core Keeper today,” said Vincent Coates, Product Manager at Fireshine Games. “As a game that served as so much of an inspiration for Core Keeper, we’ve been really excited to share this news with fans ever since conversations with Re-Logic began earlier this year. We hope that fans of both games will love seeing these iconic characters appear in each game’s worlds.”
“Re-Logic loves to support fellow indie developers that are out there making cool games. We have enjoyed playing Core Keeper since it came out, and given the similarities between the two games, the opportunity to partner together on some crossover content was a great fit,” said Ted Murphy, Head of Business Strategy & Marketing at Re-Logic. “We hope the fans of both games enjoy what has been added on each side, and we look forward to the continued success of both Terraria and Core Keeper as they each evolve in ways to continue to delight gamers everywhere.”
Released on Steam Early Access earlier this year and with over 1 million units already sold, Core Keeper is a 1-8 player mining sandbox adventure set in an ancient cavern of creatures, treasures and trinkets. Mine relics and resources to build your base, craft new equipment and survive. Defeat giant monsters, discover hidden secrets, farm crops, go fishing, cook new recipes and explore a procedurally generated underground world to unravel the mystery of the ancient core.
The next major content update for Core Keeper, The Desert of Beginnings, will introduce a brand-new desert biome and scorching new ‘Molten Quarry’ sub-biome, along with a variety of new enemies, weapons, equipment, a new boss, vehicle type and more when it launches this November.
