Korn (opens in new tab) have revealed that they’ll play a virtual reality show inside two video games starting this week.
The band will be transformed into game characters in AdventureQuest 3D and AdventureQuest Worlds for the grand opening of the Battle Concert Arena in the massively multiplayer games starting tomorrow (August 20).
Fans who don’t currently play the titles are urged to download them from Google Play, Apple’s App Store or Steam on PC and create their own character to attend the Battle Concerts.
Each new character will receive a “magical concert ticket” in their inventory, which will teleport them to the event once it gets under way.
A statement reads: “Get in the most brutal mosh pit ever and make video game history! Korn is playing the grand opening of the Battle Concert Arena in the massively multiplayer games AdventureQuest 3D and AQWorlds.
“The band will play onstage while you fight monsters, score loot, and hear a new song from Korn's upcoming album The Nothing.
“We're taking AdventureQuest 3D’s multiplayer live events to the next level. Starting August 20, 2019, grab your friends and join fellow players in an unforgettably brutal, monster-filled virtual-rock-concert. Don't forget to pick up all the loot.”
While the event is free to play, an event pack can be purchased which gives the player special Korn-branded items – including a “backstage pass” where you’ll be able to take a virtual selfie with the band.
