You can now watch footage from Korn’s video game where in which they play a virtual concert while their fans battle it out with monsters in a mosh pit.
Announcing the news on Twitter earlier this month (August 16), the band revealed that they will be taking part in a “video game battle concert” in the game AdventureQuest 3D and its 2D version, AdventureQuest Worlds, on August 20 at “sundown EST.”
Now, you can see footage from their very first virtual concert which took place earlier this week. Happening inside MMORPGs AdventureQuest 3D and AQWorlds, the short set formed part of the ‘Battle Concert’ series. Watch below.

Artix Entertainment, the games’ developer, teased the event as “the most brutal mosh pit ever.” During the band’s virtual set, players also get the opportunity to “fight monsters” and “score loot.”
More than just the gameplay, players will be treated to a new song from Korn’s upcoming album, ‘The Nothing’, during the virtual set and there’s an opportunity to participate in a virtual Q&A with the band.
While the experience is free for gamers, there is a special event package available for purchase which includes “Korn-branded items, the Heavy Metal Mosh Pit Armor, exclusive travel forms which let you transform into the new monsters from the show, bonus quests, and more…including a backstage pass so you can get a virtual backstage experience with the virtual band and take a virtual selfie.”
The frenetic track begins with the nu-metal band’s trademark chaotic guitars and lead singer Jonathan Davis’ famous coarse vocals, before descending into something more melodic. Its lyric video, meanwhile, features gothic images of lions and ghosts floating through a spooky dungeon.
