Terraria-like Core Keeper gets its first big content update next month

Pugstorm reveals that the first major Core Keeper update will introduce a new water biome full of fresh content to explore to the indie game next month

Core Keeper Sunken Sea: players gather around a pier to fish

Core Keeper’s first major content update, The Sunken Sea, will arrive in June. Set in a brand-new water-based biome, you and the gang will travel in boats, encounter multiple new enemy types, mine new valuables, experiment with new base-building elements, and discover new fish, plants, and food.

Developer Pugstorm has also revealed that the indie game now features support for dedicated servers, allowing players to host multiplayer worlds for anyone to access at any time. The devs have also updated player-hosted multiplayer to support Steam’s networking backend, which should solve many of the networking issues players previously encountered. You can find out how to set up your own dedicated server here.

“Dedicated servers have been requested since the start of the game’s launch into Steam Early Access, and we’d like to say a huge thank you to the members of our incredible community who have helped test this feature ahead of its official launch today,” Pugstorm CEO Sven Thole says in a press release.

Core Keeper swiftly found an audience when it launched in Steam Early Access earlier this year, hitting the heights of 500,000 units sold in just two weeks. We reckon Core Keeper is like Minecraft with purpose, if you’re wondering what our two cents are.
