New Terraria 1.3 PS4 & Xbox One Patch Out Now!

Greetings Terrarians!

We’re happy to announce that a new update is now available for PlayStation 4 & Xbox One. We appreciate all the feedback and reports from the community as we worked through everything contained in this patch.

This update includes several months of bug fixes, with over 600 bugs being resolved. Many of these were inter-connected and needed to be fixed together to avoid breaking something else.

To keep these patch notes relatively light (as much as you can with as many fixes as this) we’ve combined several issues into a generalized fix list. Below is the “topline summary” of this update and shows just how vast it really is. If you’re so inclined, you can read the full unedited fix list here – just prepare for a lot of reading and some raw bug reports.

While this patch update is massive, we suspect there will still be a few lingering issues out in the wild that will need to be patched in a future update; however, this patch should result in a significantly improved experience for everyone.

Please continue sending your bug reports here: https://fs30.formsite.com/505games/form15/index.html

You can provide feedback here: https://forums.terraria.org/index.php?threads/console-1-3-update-feedback-thread.64220/


The team at Pipeworks put together a quick video summary of what you can expect with this update:



What’s Next?

The teams at 505 Games, Pipeworks Studio, and Re-Logic have been coordinating on next steps for console. In the months ahead, we will be looking to do smaller and more frequent fix updates for Console as we work down our priority list.

And finally, before anyone asks, development on Mobile and Switch is being worked on by wholly separate teams in parallel to the work on PS4/XB1. Keep an eye out for new previews, teases, and monthly progress updates for those platforms in the near future..

We already have a priority list that we are working from, but we always welcome player feedback to make sure that we haven’t missed anything.


Thanks for your support!

Terraria Console/Mobile: State of the Game (September 2018)

Greetings, Terrarians!


Welcome to our first State of the Game featurette! This is a monthly report that is designed to shed additional light on where we are in development, regardless of the circumstances.


We learned a lot during the initial 1.3 launch, and we believe this is a great way to keep everyone in the community informed about development happening on each platform.


Xbox One & PlayStation 4

Since April, the team has been working on a significant patch that resolves hundreds of bugs.


We’re happy to announce that the patch has been submitted to both first-party platforms for release! As soon as we obtain approval and can release it, we’ll let you know.


This new patch resolves over 600 bugs across every aspect of the game including UI, multiplayer, art and gameplay! Players new and old are going to have a much better experience overall!


Moving forward rather than doing massive patches like this one, we are aiming to do more frequent releases. The feedback we received from the community while working on this patch necessitated this timeline and workflow, but this is the exception to the rule moving forward.


Understandably people are wondering when the next content updates will appear. At this time, we’re focused on a few more follow-up patches that will be tackling a specific set of issues. There’s some technical housekeeping we need to take care of first that will put us in a better position to continue to work through the issues that people are most vocal about.


Feedback from the community, will also be critical in helping determine what issues we address.


Ultimately, we want to provide the community with a roadmap on what you can expect in terms of additional content.


Nintendo Switch

We have another full team working diligently in parallel on the Nintendo Switch version. As you may have seen from our teaser earlier this summer, we do have a development build up and running. The team can play the game for hours and the Nintendo Switch feels like a natural home for Terraria! That said, there is still much to do to get things ready.


Diligent watchers probably noticed a “UI NOT FINAL” sticky note included in the video. Currently, the team is hard at work making noticeable size changes to the user interface so that it’s more visible on the Switch screen. It should have the same unified feel that the PS4 & Xbox One UI does, but with an emphasis on making everything bigger for the handheld mode. And yes, these changes will carry over to docked mode so that players will have a consistent experience both docked and undocked.


We have a lot of tasks and bugs left to resolve, but we feel great about the progress that’s being made. We’ll have additional information to show you as we move through production and approach our internal alpha and beta milestones.



As we mentioned in our last update to the community Switch remains ahead of mobile development. One major component of this has changed. We’ve made efforts to accelerate mobile development by increasing the team size!


Our hope is that this larger team can help get the game into the hands of mobile players sooner than we originally anticipated. It will still more than likely be a staggered launch with Switch arriving first, however that gap in wait-time should be decreased. It’s important to note that just like console and Switch there’s a full team dedicated solely to mobile.


We’ve got some very skilled engineers that have recently joined the project and are already making an impact. 


While it has been speculated within the community we would like to confirm that Terraria for mobile will be arriving in 2019.


Closing Statement

In the next couple of weeks, we will be releasing an FAQ for both Switch & Mobile which will answer a lot of the community’s questions. This will be frequently updated and will provide the community with a centralized location for some of your most pressing questions. We can’t answer every single question, but it will serve as a good basis covering as much as we can tell you at that time.


With that said, it won’t include a release date for either platform. For those of you who want to understand a little more why we don’t give firm release dates (and we know there are a lot of you) it comes down to the fact we want to get these updates and releases up to the best quality that they can be. On top of that, sometimes problems we don’t foresee get in the way and we make a slight detour to correct those, as well as… one last thing, which sometimes turns into two. However, once things are narrowed down we’ll let you know.

That's No Moon... It's a Moonlord: Terraria 1.3 Launches on PS4, XB1 Submitted


Greetings, Terrarians!


The day that you have all been waiting for has finally arrived! That's right, Terraria 1.3 for Playstation 4 launches TODAY!!!  Xbox One is a few days behind, as we mentioned the other day, but we did want to share that the 1.3 update for Xbox has officially been submitted to Microsoft for approval - so hopefully not too much longer now.


The update should roll out globally throughout the day - so be patient if it has not yet arrived on your console for download.


So, what exactly are you getting today? Well, the content changelog will be much the same as the one from when PC made the leap from 1.2.4 to 1.3. To give you just some of the highlights:


  • Brand new invasions and events - including Martian Madness and the penultimate challenge: the battle vs the Lunar Cultists, Celestial Pillars, and the Moonlord himself!
  • Over 800 new items - including weapons, armor, potions, building items and more - are available to find or craft!
  • Expert Mode - Fortune and Glory, Kid... are you willing to take on a much higher challenge with the promise of greater rewards?
  • New Biomes - the Underground Desert, Sky Lakes, and other mini biomes are out there for you to uncover
  • Loads of Quality of Life changes and new features/mechanics
  • Updated sprites and artwork aligned to the PC 1.3.4 update


However, that is not all! Terraria 1.3 for Consoles is not a mere update to the existing version of the game. Instead, this represents a complete rewrite of the codebase from the ground up, utilizing the core PC codebase as its foundation. What does this mean? It means you will see a good number of additional changes:


  • Brand new Controller schemes - including Red's Pick and legacy console defaults - as well as full controller remapping so that you can customize your controls to your preferences.
  • New UI for Single Player and Splitscreen that more closely matches PC
  • More save slots for Players and Worlds
  • Larger worlds that now exactly match their intended sizes on PC
  • Other smaller visual and otherwise tweaks


Have an existing save from the legacy version of Terraria on console? Don't worry, the Pipeworks team have made sure that you will be able to continue your adventure with your old saves into the new and exciting world of 1.3! When you first launch the new update on your console, your legacy saves will be converted over to the new format as a part of startup. This is a one time process and it will take several minutes, depending on how many players/worlds you have and how large and complex they are. It is important that you let this process finish, so do not shut off your console, etc. until it does.


Bug Reporting

The Pipeworks team is on full standby and is prepared to roll out hotfixes. This will start with any minor bugs that we deferred in order to get this update out to you sooner vs later and will also include anything else you find - because, as always, millions of players will always find something that even the best internal QA team will not. Please get any early bugs you find in so that the team can address as many as possible before everyone shuts down for the Holidays (remember, even devs and Sony/MS deserve some time off :)).

Primary place for Console Bug Reports - Please utilize this link, which we will also have in a banner on TCF for a bit: CLICK HERE TO REPORT CONSOLE BUGS


For further details – including where and how to provide bug reports, feedback, and what is next up for the Terraria teams, please check out our full forum post on this launch:  LINK TO FULL DETAILS

So, it's a day to celebrate for Terrarians everywhere - an amazing new update in your hands and the promise of so much more to come! We cannot thank you enough for your patience and understanding as our teams collaborated to make this latest version of Terraria as solid as we could.

Cheers and here's to the future... now what are you still here for? Get out there and enjoy 1.3!

~The Teams at Re-Logic, Pipeworks, and 505 Games


1.3.5 Update is Live on PC!

Hello Terrarians!

The dev team has been hard at work! We are excited to introduce new and improved language support/translations, 4K support, UI scale and zoom options, new furniture, a couple of armor sets, and more! This update represents one part of the team's vision for what we have called 1.3.5 to this point, and is focused on polishing and fixing up some issues that have needed addressing as well as bringing some long-requested features to the game. Admittedly, it is a bit light on "more content", however, we wanted to go ahead and get these ready-to-go features out to players now rather than making everyone wait until all of the other stuff is completed.


The other part of this update will be focused on a list of things that the team feels needs a fresh look (rebalancing/tweaking/polishing) as well as some areas that we feel were overlooked or forgotten when we were working on the past several updates. This will provide a solid foundation from which we can execute our other secret Terraria update plans - and we are pretty sure you will find those exciting!


For now, enjoy these handful of goodies (especially our non-English speaking fans), look forward to a second round to come... and towards even bigger things down the road.

Check out our 1.3.5 launch announcement post (linked below) on our forums for the full changelog and to discuss the latest update to Terraria!

Terraria 1.3.5 Launch Announcement




Changing of the Guard: An Update from Otherworld

Good Day, Terrarians-


We wanted to take a few moments to share some important news with you all in regards to the status of Terraria: Otherworld.

As you all know from when we first announced the game a good while back, Re-Logic’s focus has and always will be on delivering complete and quality game experiences to our fanbase. This means that we will not compromise game quality for speed to market or for any other reasons within our control. Our team had a clear vision for this game – one that we shared with all of you with much shared excitement – and, as much as we hate to say it (and in spite of all of the reforms we tried last year) - the current state of the game is still equal parts far from that vision and well behind schedule.


As a result, we have made the decision to move on from having Engine Software continue development of Terraria: Otherworld. Re-Logic has possession of the game (code, art, sounds, etc.) as it exists today, and we have been examining the array of options available to us to get TOW to a place to where we can confidently deliver on the vision and expectations we all have for this game. After taking a good hard look at everything, we feel that a new and fresh start/direction is the only way Otherworld will ever reach its full potential at this point.


So, where does TOW head from here? The great news is that we already have a dedicated and passionate team ready to pick up the torch and continue the Otherworld journey! Based upon their really impressive work to-date with the Terraria re-write on Console/Mobile, coupled with an amazingly on-point proposal for completing Otherworld (after a thorough review of the game on their end), we have made the decision to bring Pipeworks on board as our new development partner for Terraria: Otherworld!

We know that the "radio silence" and all of the shifting development work aimed at continuing the journey for Terraria: Otherworld has been frustrating for a lot of you. It isn’t a happy or easy call for us either – however, we feel strongly that we owe it to our community and loyal customers to uphold the standards that both you and we expect and to focus on delivering the best possible games that we can for you all to play. The length of the silence was purely driven by "these things take time to occur and then set up" coupled with our desire to have an actual solution/path forward before just sharing the news about Engine.


Come whatever may, quality is simply not something we are willing to compromise on to make a quick buck. It may be painful in the short term, but our sincere hope is that it will pay off for everyone in the long term. Clearly, had we known this would be the scenario way back then, we would have held off on announcing the game until a later time - but such is game development. That said, we are really happy and confident with the new team and new plan - and cannot wait to get back on track.


Some quick details/questions that you may have:


  • Scope: We will be working with Pipeworks to examine the entire game, from top to bottom, to see how it fits with our high expectations and core vision for this project.
  • Timing: As we know more about the specifics of timing, etc and/or have fresh spoilers to share, we absolutely will - though expect the "quiet period" to go on just a bit longer while Pipeworks gets ramped up and we actually have new things to show.
  • Impact on other work: Pipeworks will staff up appropriately so that the Otherworld workload does not have any impact on the timing/quality of the Terraria 1 Console/Mobile/Switch launch
  • Other Changes: We will be doing a full refresh of all of the Otherworld public-facing locations (Website/Twitter/Facebook/etc.) - including a revamp of the logo itself!   As these are completed, we will be sure to let you know so that you can check things out!


Thanks so much to you all for your amazing support of Terraria, Terraria: Otherworld, and our company. It is that support that drives us every day to do amazing things for you and we look forward to sharing more of what is to come very soon.


We are sure that you have a ton of questions, and we will answer what we can – but we will not delve into some areas out of either respect or confidence or the unknown. So we will ask your patience and forgiveness in advance there.





Update on Console & Mobile 1.3 Update Progress

Good day, Terrarians and a Happy 2017 from Pipeworks!


It has been a few months since we announced our taking over the work on Terraria for Console and Mobile; including a full rebuilding of the Console/Mobile codebase. We are happy today to be able to give you an update on progress - and to showcase some of what is coming your way on the road to 1.3 for Xbox One & PS4!

The video above contains a few snippets from our latest build - contrasted with the identical content from the PC version of Terraria so that you can see our end goal of "one Terraria experience" coming to fruition. We hope you join us in our excitement when you see this small taste of what we are building for each of you; including a new "friend" who is dying to meet you.


Keep in mind that this is a pre-alpha build so you may notice some bugs appear, however we couldn’t hold off any longer releasing some footage!


So, what about timing? Glad you asked:


  • Our work is progressing on-schedule, and we are really pleased with the progress thus far!
  • We are quite close to moving to Alpha and beginning the rigorous testing/QA process in partnership with our friends at Re-Logic.
  • Target Timing for release of Console 1.3 remains Q2 2017.



  • Our plan is to utilize good portions of what we have built and learned with the console rebuild as we work to build a similar "One Terraria" experience on mobile devices.
  • Of course, there will still be a good bit of work needed on mobile-specific areas (UI, Controls, etc) beyond getting that core foundation solid.
  • Target Timing for release of Mobile 1.3 remains a few months after Console, so you can expect this in the second half of 2017; hopefully sooner rather than later!


The Pipeworks team is quite pleased with the progress the team has made thus far and continues to make every day. We are even more thrilled to give you a sneak peek at some content that will be arriving soon!

1.3.4 Dungeon Defenders Crossover Update


1.3.4, is now live! This update opens the portal between Terraria and Etheria, bringing the Dungeon Defenders 2 cross over content, including a new NPC, enemies, weapons, and more!

The Path Ahead: Major News Updates for Console & Mobile

Good day, Terrarians!

We cannot help but to be really excited about the ongoing work – and that we are finally able to share it with you! So, without further ado, we are sharing a handful of plans with you today:

  • Old Generation Consoles (PS3/Xbox 360/PS Vita)
  • Changing of the Guard
  • Current Generation Consoles (PS4/Xbox One)
  • Mobile



What’s happening with old-gen?

  • Engine Software is currently working on an update that will be focused on clearing out the most impactful bugs that our QA and/or Re-Logic QA have been able to uncover - along with keeping close track with anything that the Community has raised. This will encompass over 100 fixes in total. If you have any major items in particular that you would like to inquire about, please let us know.


  • This update will unfortunately be the final update for PS3, XB360, and PS Vita


  • Targeted release timeframe is September 2016


  • The great news is that you can continue to play these versions of Terraria (both online and offline) as a fully functioning – and still incredibly fun – game.
    • No further updates will be coming for old gen
    • Current-Gen consoles (XB1, PS4) will continue to receive updates (more on that below)
    • Future updates to current-gen platforms will unfortunatelty make cross-play with old-gen platforms impossible



Why are we no longer providing updates for old-gen?

  • Simply put, these consoles are 12 years old at this point, and we are running into hardware requirement issues (as some of you saw with Vita): as Terraria has grown over the years, its hardware demands have as well – with 1.3 being a sizeable jumping-off point. This also means that we would likely have to substantially "hold back" current gen possibilities in order to make things work with the "lowest common denominator."


  • So, that being the case and in order to continue to give all users the best Terraria experience, we needed to draw a line here that allows old gen players to have a stable and authentic game experience – even if that means being stopped at 1.2.4 tier content – while also enabling current gen consoles to fully leverage their more current hardware.


  • We explored a few possible approaches to make 1.3 work, but – to be frank – none of them were really acceptable. They required too much in the way of compromising the Terraria console gameplay experience and still left some lingering stability concerns, all while drawing in a rather large amount of resources to make it work at all – resources that we ultimately feel would be better used to push Terraria forward further and faster.



How are we making the transition easier for our users?

  • You will be able to upload your worlds from old-gen platforms and transfer them to current-gen – we have been focusing heavily on cross-saves over the past few months and will continue to do so in order to be 100% certain that this is functional for everyone.


  • We are working with Sony and Microsoft to help make the transition as smooth as possible for current owners – keep an eye out for some exciting promotions!



As this is a major milestone in the journey of Terraria on Console and Mobile, we took a step back and evaluated everything that we had currently going on as well as available resources. To that end, we are making a shift in the development teams moving forward. We thank Engine and Codeglue for all of their contributions to bringing Terraria to a wider community but we’ve made the decision to bring all development in-house under one roof with Pipeworks. So say a big thank you to them both, and a give a warm welcome to Pipeworks!


Engine will remain on board until the final Old Gen Console Update is complete, while CodeGlue will remain on board until sometime in Q3, as they continue their work on stabilizing the mobile codebase. CodeGlue will also remain on board for any future 3DS updates.

Meeting Pipeworks: Our new Console and Mobile Development Team

That said, let’s meet the new team shall we? Taking over the mantle of Terraria development on Console and Mobile will be Pipeworks Studio out of Eugene, Oregon! Here is a bit about Pipeworks and why they were such a good fit for this project:


  • They are a part of the Digital Bros. group (of which 505 Games is as well) – so this is an opportunity to bring Terraria “in house”
  • Since the reforms in QA, our current Console (and future Mobile) QA team is located at Pipeworks as well – this means that the QA team and the dev team will sit side-by-side, and that makes for some massive gains in efficiency of finding and squashing issues!
  • The team dedicated to Terraria at Pipeworks are MASSIVE Terraria fans. Each of the team members are well-versed veterans of the franchise on PC and beyond – logging hundreds of hours of play over time. They are also immensely passionate about this project and making this amazing.


So, everyone, please share your warmest greetings to our new team at Pipeworks! We have certainly encouraged them to dive right in to the community – and we hope to have some events in the very near future that will allow the community and the dev team to interact more closely. Stay tuned there!


Continuing with our theme of this being a key milestone and thus a chance for a fresh start, Pipeworks is hard at work on two huge undertakings:


Console Reset

  • PW is currently rebuilding the entire Console Terraria experience from the ground up.
  • The foundation/standard being utilized is the current Terraria PC codebase, which should ultimately mean:
    • Integration of the PC Controller support style
    • A more seamless/authentic experience - when you play one version or the other, they should feel quite similar if not exactly the same!
    • Shortened update “gaps” and a cleaner, more stable experience
    • And more!


  • There are other potential benefits to this Reset that the team is actively exploring and discussing, but we will save those for sharing when we know more/are more certain if/when any of that will be possible.


Terraria 1.3 on Current Gen Consoles!!!

  • Our next update for current gen is the long-awaited MASSIVE Terraria 1.3 update - which includes a ton of new content. When it arrives, it will include both the reset discussed above AND be current up to at least PC 1.3 standard. For those of you whom are for some reason unaware of what all 1.3 brings to the table, here is just a small sampling:
    • Endgame Celestial Invasion Event & Moonlord final boss encounter
    • Brutally difficult Expert Mode – where fortune and glory - and unique loot - await those brave enough.
    • Over 800 new items, bringing the total count to well over 3500!
    • Numerous player quality of life upgrades
    • Original Changelog for PC is located here: http://forums.terraria.org/index.php?threads/1-3-changelog.20617/


We know that everyone has been dying for this content to arrive on Console for some time, and we are beyond thrilled to finally announce that it is well underway.


The timing of these two projects will overlap – meaning that Current Gen Console players will get both the Reset AND Terraria 1.3 at the same time! Of course, that leads to the obvious question: When?


Our current target delivery for the Reset+1.3 is Q2 2017. All of this will be absolutely free to existing Current Gen Console Terraria owners (Old Gen players will have to purchase a Current Gen copy).


We – and Pipeworks – plan to share progress and spoilers along the way. We are even looking into more interactive ways to allow you all to share in the journey with us. So, stay tuned and look forward to that! In the meantime, let’s whet your appetite with a quick screen of the current actively-running build of Console Terraria:



So, that just leaves our good friends the Mobile Terrarians. What do we have in store for you guys?


As you saw above, we are changing our Mobile development team over to Pipeworks as well. As with Console, Pipeworks is working to redesign and rebuild the Terraria Mobile experience. This eventual Mobile Reset will include Terraria 1.3 as well!


In parallel, CodeGlue will continue their efforts to stabilize the existing Terraria mobile game. This will be critically important even with the Mobile Reset, because there will likely be older devices (less RAM, etc) that cannot run Mobile 1.3, and we want to leave players with those older devices with as stable and solid a Terraria experience as we can.


Key things to know:

Timing is planned to be “around the time of” the Console Reset – but likely will come after it by at least a few months. As we know more, we will share it.

  • As with Console, we will share our plans and progress and journey with you!
  • We are aware of other features desired by the community (online multiplayer, UI redesign, rebalancing, etc), and those will absolutely be discussed in our planning. As we know more there, we will fill you in – hopefully, we can cover off at least some of these in the reset!
  • As always, the updates (and the reset) will be free to current owners of Terraria on Mobile.

Whew, well that’s all we have for today – it was a lot to write and probably even more for you guys to take in. We are beyond thrilled to be able to share all of this with you and equally excited for what this means for the future of the franchise is a massive understatement. We truly feel that we have found a way here to spend the time and money needed to accomplish our – and Re-Logic’s – goal of providing the best Terraria experience possible to as many people as possible. This is something that we look forward to continue providing to you all for years to come.


Here’s to the journey ahead!
