Core Guardian, the Terraria-like underground survival simulator that surpassed 500,000 downloads on Steam just weeks after launch, now has dedicated servers. The new feature, added in an update released today, will give Core Keeper players the ability to host their own multiplayer worlds for up to eight players.
“Dedicated servers have been requested from the very beginning of the game’s release on Steam Early Access, and we’d like to say a huge thank you to the members of our amazing community who helped test this feature ahead of its official release today.” said Sven Thole, CEO of Pugstorm, developer of Core Keeper.
Pugstorm also revealed the first details of Core Keeper’s first major content update today. Called The Sunken Sea, it will add a new water-based biome with islands, boats, and new enemies, treasure, base building items, fish, plants, and food. Your ultimate goal: explore a procedurally generated underground world and solve the mystery of the ancient core.
The Sunken Sea is scheduled to air in June. A solid release date has not been set, but the update will be fully revealed during the PC game program on June 12th.
