Upgrade gear for the very first time. Using the brand new Upgrade Station, players can level up their favorite weapons and tools. Discover new weapons, such as the Razor Flake, Shard Club and the gooey Slime Staff, by defeating the Atlantean Worm. This new colossal boss is optional and lurks in the Sunken Sea biome.
Create beams of sunlight. Use the new powerful Roofing Gadget tool to crack open the ceiling to light the way. Drill through walls in record time with the Obliteration Ray. Highly destructive, the Obliteration Ray when wielded mines faster than any other equipment in the game.
New biome, new enemies, creatures, and characters. Roaming the frontier are giant Crystal Snails, creepy crawly Nilipedes, and crystal-mimicking Mimites. Speak to the Crystal Merchant to discover new items to trade.
Test out those combat skills in all-new battle events. These arena-based combat scenarios challenge all and the most courageous can walk away with shinny rewards. Find over 50 new pieces of armor and equipment. Examples include the enemy HP leeching Larva Fang necklace and the inventory increasing Trench Coat.
With such a significant amount of new content and an entirely new biome to explore, there’s so much to Core Keeper’s Shimmering Frontier update that we just can’t wait for players to discover it all for themselves next month. Shimmering Frontier is the fourth major content update for Core Keeper following our previous work on The Sunken Sea, Desert of Beginnings and Paws & Claws. We wanted to make this latest update feel very special with a host of substantial new content and gameplay improvements. We hope players love exploring the Shimmering Frontier and finding all of its hidden secrets.Fredrik Präntare, Chief Executive Officer & Creative Director at Pugstorm
