Good afternoon, Terrarians!
The teams at Re-Logic and Engine Software would like to take a few moments to provide the entire Terraria Community with a major announcement. As we hinted earlier in our quite vague "teaser", we will be collaborating on a new project that is not Terraria 2, nor anything else that we had discussed before.
Well, the time has come to provide our first major reveal around this project. So, without further ado, we present to Terrarians everywhere the first look at...
Expanding upon the immensely popular action-sandbox title Terraria, exploring what might have been, and approaching gameplay in a new direction; Terraria: Otherworld represents a novel take on the Terraria experience.
Set in an alternate dimension within the Terraria universe, Terraria: Otherworld places the player in a life-and-death struggle to restore a once-pristine world – now overrun by a malevolent force that has corrupted nature itself – to its original splendor. Along with a rag-tag band of survivors, will you be able to successfully harness the power of an array of weaponry, magic, defenses, and even the world itself to thwart the designs of this unseen evil?
Combining the experience of sandbox gameplay with role-playing and strategy elements, Terraria: Otherworld explores the Terraria experience in an innovative and unique way - providing a fresh approach to the “open world” genre.
To further pique your interest, we put together a brief teaser trailer video based on early Alpha footage.
Terraria: Otherworld is in development for PC & Mac platforms. We are considering PS4 and Xbox One versions, but a final decision has not been made in that regard. We have set up a "Coming Soon" page for Terraria: Otherworld where everyone can stay abreast of the latest and greatest news as the project progresses. We also plan to launch a full site and community for Terraria: Otherworld at a future date/closer to launch. We will share details around that both on the Terraria: Otherworld page as well as here on TCF.
Re-Logic & Engine Software will both be in attendance at the upcoming Game Developers Conference (Expo March 4-6, San Francisco), showcasing Terraria: Otherworld and making ourselves available for Q&A. We plan to share our thoughts and experiences while there - for those interested - via social media and/or a potential blog thread here on TCF. If you plan to be in attendance at GDC, feel free to stop by our booth (#2230)!
For now, please utilize the new Terraria: Otherworld forum section on TCF to discuss the game, news, speculation, and more.
We are also announcing the new Re-Logic Facebook & Twitter accounts. As we expand beyond Terraria, we felt that this was a natural move. Please add these to your list of social media pages to follow!

We hope you will join us in our excitement around this new project and the chance to take the Terraria universe in a fresh direction!
For those that may be concerned about Terraria and the 1.3 update - don't worry a bit. We are still working as feverishly as ever to bring what we think is the most amazing update yet to Terrarians everywhere.
Finally, we wanted to take a minute out to send a personal thank you to each and every one of you - our fans and customers. Without your support, purchases, sharing Terraria with friends, and just overall awesomeness, none of this would be remotely possible. We are greatly looking forward to bringing you a gaming experience that expands upon what you love about Terraria, feels truly different/new, and lives up to the expectations we know each of you have for us. Rest assured that we do not take that responsibility lightly and we cannot wait to delight you once again!
