Core Keeper finally has a dedicated server > NAG


Back in March, I wrote about the early access launch of Core Keeper, a mix between top-down gameplay like Stardew Valley and persistent co-op multiplayer features you’ll find in Valheim or Terraria. It’s a fantastic little game, but until recently it was held back by one critical issue: no private dedicated servers. As a result, you could only join a game when the host was online, which really reduced the chances of a little walk-in gameplay. I even noted it in my initial post: Core Keeper could be the next Valheim if it had dedicated private servers.

Well, it’s time to put my prediction to the test. This week, the developers of Core Keeper released dedicated server software for the game. This Steam post explains morebut you can find it in the “tools” section of your Steam client.

They also took the opportunity to reveal a major content update, The Sunken Sea, which is slated to arrive in June, adding additional areas, ore types, enemies and build options, and more:

  • New sub-biome
  • new boss titan
  • 4 new enemies
  • New type of ore
  • New equipment and weapons
  • New legendary weapon
  • new fish
  • New plants
  • new food
  • Teleporters
  • Boats
  • New base building elements
  • Sprinklers
  • New level at the jewelry bench
  • New Valuables
  • Map markers

The message also hints at other surprises. Keep an eye out next month for when the update drops.
