Core Keeper Shimmering Frontier Update Adds Crystal Biome

Fireshine Games and Swedish game developer Pugstorm have released the Shimmering Frontier free content update for Core Keeper. Explore a glistening new crystal biome environment and discover new crafting materials.

A new crystal-based biome awaits. The Shimmering Frontier update takes the mining sandbox survival adventure to a whole new area with a brand new material, Solarite ore. Discover new recipes and use the new ore to craft Solarite-enhanced equipment that includes an improved Mining Pick, Fishing Rod, Sword and Crossbow.

Use the brand new Upgrade Station to upgrade gear. Players can level up their favorite weapons and tools for the first time in Core Keeper. Discover over 50 new pieces of armor and weapons, such as the Razor Flake, Shard Club and the gooey Slime Staff. Other examples include the enemy HP leeching Larva Fang necklace and the inventory increasing Trench Coat.

The powerful new Roofing Gadget tool can crack open the ceiling to reveal beams of light. For those who like to move and dig simultaneously, the Hand Drill now makes this feat possible. Drill through walls in record time with the Obliteration Ray. When wielded, the highly destructive Obliteration Ray mines faster than any other equipment in the game.

With a new biome comes new enemies, creatures, and characters. Giant Crystal Snails can be found roaming the frontier along with creepy crawly Nilipedes and crystal-mimicking Mimites. A Crystal Merchant is ready to make a deal with new items to trade.

Defeat the Atlantean Worm. This new colossal boss is optional and lurks deep below the waves in the Sunken Sea biome.

Test out combat skills in all-new battle events. All are challenged in these arena-based combat scenarios with only the most courageous walking away with shinny rewards. Find over 50 new pieces of armor and equipment.
