Terraria is crossing over with another PC indie title, the excellent Core Keeper and is set to release its slime at the end of September.
It’s not the first time 2D crafting game Terraria has crossed over with another title. Back in April, Terraria crossed over with Don’t Starve Together, bringing the Deerclops and more to the former. Now, it’s Core Keeper’s turn.
Not unlike Terraria, Core Keeper describes itself as a “mining sandbox adventure”, so it makes sense the two would cross over. We absolutely loved Core Keeper when we covered it back in March, even though it’s still in Early Access. Developer Pugstorm has added extra biomes since then and we’re definitely up for even more content.
The crossover update, which arrives this September 26th, adds King Slime, a goopy boss that you can call through Glurch’s summoning circle (insert your own filthy joke here). It’ll be tough to beat but the loot drops will, apparently, be worth it.
Terraria, on the other hand, will get a Caveling Farmer that, stepping out of Core Keeper, will follow you around offering moral support. Terraria update 1.4.4, set to arrive shortly, will add the creature. It’s fun to see games crossing over like this and we’re not at all bitter that, while Capcom released Street Fighter X Tekken, Namco never followed up with Tekken X Street Fighter. Honest.
If you’ve yet to play Core Keeper you can purchase it from the Steam Store. Pugstorm is aiming for it to leave Early Access by the end of 2022 but that’s subject to change.
