Popular sandbox Terraria and Core Keeper are close friends. A familiar monster of both works visits us
Fire shine Games, a publisher of Core Keeper , announced on September 22 that crossover content with Terr aria will be distributed on September 26 (local time). In this crossover, a certain monster in both works can be summoned in the opponent's world.
First, on September 26, a crossover update will be made in Core Keeper. This update seems to be able to summon the King Slime of Terrain in the cave of Core Keeper. The summoning method is not clear, but it is necessary to have a ritual to invite King. The rewards that players get from defeating King Slime are special items.
On the 28th, as part of the originally planned 1.4.4 update LABOR OF LOVE in Terr aria, the cave ring that appears in Core Keeper will be summoned as a pet. To summon this, it seems that you need a familiar item in Core Keeper. This crossover is not a limited-time collaboration, but remains in both works as a permanent content.
Both works are works with different individuality, but also have something in common. For example, dot pictures drawn in and combat, search, and sandbox elements that are evaluated by players. This crossover will be an important bridge that connects the two worlds. I've been playing happily since the launch of Core Keeper, said Ted Murphy, RE-LOGIC's business strategy and marketing manager who develops Terrain. Given the similarities between the two games, he states that it will be perfect for crossover. By the way, the official Twitter account of Terr aria introduced the work at the start of early access of Core Keeper in retweets. Murphy's words are not the lip service for the collaboration, but probably at the beginning of the distribution of both works.
Most recently, there was a video posted by the Core Keeper official Twitter account, where the Terr aria side was involved. A tweet that introduces the comfortable cave update held on September 14 in Core Keeper. However, there was a video suggesting this collaboration. It is a treasure chest with king slime-like golden decoration. Here, the official Twitter account of Terrain commented, There is some suspicious treasure chest. Looking back now, this would have been a crossover hint.
And Core Keeper and Terr aria are scheduled to be updated this fall (related article 1, related article 2). Terrain has been updated many times after the update, which was final update. On the 28th, along with the crossover, the update LABOR OF LOVE will be added to add new features. Core Keeper will be updated on the 14th of this month, and a large update will be planned again in November. Terr aria was released in 2011, and Core Keeper was just early access distribution in March 2022. Both works, which have been released for more than 10 years, are currently updating vigorously, and it is deeply impressive that they will collaborate.
Core Keeper is currently distributing early access to PC (Steam), and crossover updates will be distributed on the 26th. The LABOR OF LOVE version of Terr aria, including crossover, will be distributed on September 28 for PC (Steam) and overseas console/mobile.
