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.
