As you know, we have been working diligently over the past 18 months to expand the World of Terraria - both in regards to the scope of the game itself as well as the platforms on which it can be played. It has been simply amazing to watch our community expand into Console and Mobile in parallel with our reinvigorated PC fans.
That said, we are extremely pleased to share the two teaser screenshots below that we hope will finally address a long-desired addition to Terraria: availability for both Mac and Linux!
Mac/Linux Terraria FAQ
Q: Will existing Windows worlds/characters be compatible with the Mac/Linux versions?
A: Absolutely! Existing Windows players should be able to copy over and utilize their existing world/character files.
Q: Will owners of the existing Windows version on Steam have to purchase the Mac/Linux versions separately?
A: Our intent is to provide the Mac/Linux versions free of charge to any existing owners of Terraria on Steam. The logistics and/or if this is possible will play out as we get closer to launch.
Q: Can players on different platforms (Windows/Mac/Linux) play together on the same server?
A: Yes indeed! Players from across the Terraria "computer-based" platforms should be able to jump in servers together for some Terraria multiplayer sessions with no issues.
In full transparency, both of these versions are very much in development, so we cannot make any promises as to a launch date - or even if they will ultimately be feasible - but we wanted to make sure that our long-suffering Mac/Linux fans know that we are working diligently to bring Terraria to their platform!
