Celebrate the Winter Holiday in Core Keeper with the recently released Patch This update brings cool content that’s fit for the season, including a new merchant and new items.

One of the things that players will notice when logging into Core Keeper is that certain biomes and objects are now covered in snow. Some enemies also received a makeover befitting of the holidays, like the Slime Blobs that have now become Snowhead Slimes.

Anyway, the new Seasonal Merchant has arrived in Patch This merchant, who happens to resemble Santa Claus, sells players some holiday-themed items, including the Festive Workbench, Gingerbread House Chest, and Little Helperlings.

Players can summon the Seasonal Merchant by crafting a new item called the Seasonal Calendar from the Carpenter’s Bench. This calendar should then be placed inside a small room with a bed in it. After doing so, the merchant will appear almost immediately, so players don’t have to wait that long.

Aside from the new seasonal content, this update increases the drop chance of Oracle Card “Brilliance.” Not only that but this particular card can now drop from Large Ancient Crates as well. This is a pretty good change, especially for players who have had trouble finding one in the past.
