Korn will be playing an in-game concert in AdventureQuest 3D and AdventureQuest Worlds

Believe me, I’m just as awestruck by that headline as perhaps anyone reading this is, and I’m the one who wrote it. It’s true, though: The hard rock group Korn will be lending its members’ likenesses and even a brand-new song as part of an in-game concert event in both AdventureQuest 3D and AdventureQuest Worlds. Yes, really.

Here’s how it shakes down: New AQ3D characters will get themselves a Magic Ticket in their inventory, though you’ll certainly want to get through the tutorial section first. If you happen to already be a regular player of the game, you can get your ticket from the Special Event Promoter for a mere 100g. In either case, using the ticket will teleport you to the Battle Concert Arena when the event starts, where you can hear an in-game concert by the digital versions of Korn, including a new song from their upcoming album The Nothing, and even fight monsters in the mosh pit for some loot.

The event itself will be free, but there is also a VIP pack up for purchase that will grant you Korn-branded items, the Heavy Metal Mosh Pit armor, the ability to transform into monsters while at the show, and even a backstage pass so you can get a shot with the in-game likenesses of the band.

The totally surreal in-game event starts on Tuesday, August 20th, and will run for a month, and once it’s gone, it absolutely is gone.

Over 10 years ago AQWorlds was doing virtual live concerts. I also have read about Free Realms having a live concert in game too.

Fortnite does a concert this year “We’re the first live virtual concert!” Uh huh.

I remember when Free Realms did this when it launched. It was some k pop kids group that had avatars that looked like them.

They’ve been doing this for ages in AQWorlds with bands. The only new thing is that it’s happening in AQ3D now as well. They had at least 3 live concerts AQW in the past.

Oh hey I found the one you were talking about (I had read about it before also). Guinness lists that one as the first that took place both live and in real life at the same time.

AdventureQuest Worlds actually did the first in game live concert or music event with Voltaire, but it wasn’t taking place in live and real at the same time as far as I know.

AQW did another one the next year with One Eyed Doll.

I found links to stuff showing the various old concerts, the old event pages for AQW and also a Guinness page talking about Free Realms having the first concert that was live in both real and virtual at the same time in 2009 – but apparently my post isn’t going to be approved with the links in it (or at least hasn’t been yet, a day later, so I assume it won’t be).

The proof is out there though if you want to go looking :D

Wouldn’t be the first time it was done either :D When Blind Guardian did the theme for one of the later Sacreds, they were also approached with “hey.. do you want to actually be in the game?” It was pretty nuts :D

Now that I think about it, Sabaton has a tank in World of Tanks, too.

I wonder if there’s enough to do a Top 10. What a crazy list that would look like…

Well, we’ve had tech-driven holograms doing concerts, guess it was only a matter of time before a human-driven meatbag did a virtual concert.

They’ve been doing live concerts in AQW for over 10 years now, so it’s not really a new thing. It’s just a different band doing a concert there that they’re also doing in AQ3D this time.

I’m not convinced I’m actually on MOP and not some fake tabloid site. That’s more logical to me than the article lol.

Going to have to check this out.

I’m sorry say what now

I think the most shocking part of it all is that it’s AQ3D. Definitely not the most popular of MMOs, but I guess Korn isn’t the most popular of bands these days. Still, wow that’s wacky.

Popular or not, it’s definitely fitting for AQ3D.
