Core Keeper will receive furry companions with the Paws & Claws Update on May 10th

From Press Release:

LONDON, UK – April 26, 2023 – Meet a variety of fluffy friends and raise your very own pet pals in Core Keeper’s ‘Paws & Claws Update’, the next major update for the hit mining sandbox adventure game, launching as a free content update on May 10th.

Introducing pets to the game for the very first time, the Paws & Claws Update lets explorers embark on their underground adventure with five all-new cuddly companions, including the waggy-tailed Subterrier, floppy-eared Fanhare, fluffy-furred Embertail, oozy Jr Slimes, and the aerobatic Owlux. Discover, hatch and care for each pet, feeding them to gain experience and learn new skills, before bringing them into battle to take advantage of their unique abilities.

Players will also get to explore the brand new Meadow sub-biome and meet adorable farm animals roaming the world. Discover Moolins, Bambucks and the crustacean-like Strolly Poly, and look after them to farm useful materials like milk, wool and Strolly Poly plates.

The Paws & Claws Update also introduces a powerful new Creative Mode, allowing explorers to build to their hearts’ content. Create your perfect underground base without the need to gather resources or worry about enemy attacks in this all-new, passively-paced mode.

A host of highly-anticipated community-requested features will also be introduced, including object rotation, a bucket, improved combat mechanics and a brand-new craftable glass material, complete with refractive lighting effects and paint options to create even more stunning bases.

“The Paws & Claws Update has been the most fun update to work on yet, and we can’t wait for players to discover all the adorable animals we have coming to Core Keeper next month,” said Fredrik Präntare, Chief Executive Officer & Creative Director at Pugstorm. “The pets add a whole new dimension to the experience, and when combined with highly-requested features like buckets and rotational objects, we really hope fans love what we have in store for them with this next update.”
