SEATTLE, Washington-November 7, 2022- Terraria boss Skeletron Prime has been mysteriously summoned outside of the action-adventure sandbox game to appear in a new virtual event hosted by Game Jolt. The social media platform for gamers is collaborating with Re-Logic, the studio behind Terraria, from November 14th through the 21st. Fans are invited on a unique adventure where they will craft iconic weapons from the game in preparation for a Livestream boss battle titled Terraria x Game Jolt: Skeletron Prime Attacks!
Social media meets inspiration from gameplay in this unique challenge to defeat the enemy and defend Game Jolt’s Terraria community. Reward-based challenges referred to as quests will guide participants through adventures that include classic concepts from the original game in a novel setting. On the week of November 14th, Game Jolt will send participants on a quest each day to gather ingredients and craft their favorite weapons endorsed by the official Terraria Wiki. When a quest gets completed, users earn the materials needed to advance to the next step, leading up to a battle with Skeletron Prime on November 18th. Participants will also be entered to win both virtual and physical prizes during the event including collectible trophies and plushies featuring Terraria’s Eye of Cthulhu.
Even in this new environment, fans will recognize familiar details from the game as they dig for resources to craft Terraria weapons like the Megashark, Light Disc, and Golden Shower. In this iteration, weapons are crafted with virtual stickers representing ingredients, which are placed on Crafting Stations posted to Game Jolt’s Terraria community. Those crafted creations can be used in a showdown with Skeletron Prime from November 18th through the 21st. The boss battle will take place inside a Livestream on Game Jolt where users can chat during combat as they work together and wield their weapons to defeat the mechanical evil.
Through this style of interactive gamified content, players discover new ways to engage with their favorite games and fan communities. Immersive events inspired by games add depth to the social media landscape, encourage positive interactions, create authentic connections, form new friendships, and foster communities built around shared interests. Crossovers are continuing to grow in popularity, bringing even more fans together with collaborations that allow for the creative use of classic IPs and offer fresh ways to enjoy beloved games. Terraria’s latest news follows excitement for its 1.4.4 Update: Labor of Love, igniting an already devoted fan base that has been going strong for over a decade since the game’s first release.
