Strategy gaming specialists Kalypso Media and developers Realmforge Studios have today announced a special new in-game event for their fan-favourite strategy title Dungeons 3. Beginning on 15th April and running indefinitely, the Golden Pickaxe Event introduces a new treasure-hunting challenge to the acclaimed dungeon management sim across all platforms (PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One).
In the event, the world of Dungeons 3 will suddenly be populated with mysterious golden pickaxes, with one appearing in a mission from each DLC released to date, along with the main game. Naturally, it’s down to the players to gather them up, with a selection of in-game goodies waiting to be unlocked and an extra special reward awaiting anyone that can locate a pickaxe in every piece of Dungeons 3 DLC. Rumour has it that this final reward has some connection to a faraway world…but what could it be?
Along with the Golden Pickaxe Event, there is currently a Dungeons 3 franchise sale on Steam and a seasonal Easter in-game event on all platforms, both of which will run until 22nd April, where players’ dungeons will be outfitted with an assortment of cosmetic decorations.
Kalypso Media has also prepared a trailer for the Golden Pickaxe Event, available below.
