Massive Updates Hit Console and Mobile Versions of Terraria

November 8, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

505 Games has spruced up the console and mobile versions of the hit PC game Terraria. The company, which publishes the iOS, Android, Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game, announced updates for all versions of the game in one way or another. iOS and Android Terraria owners can now play against each other or cooperatively thanks to Wi-Fi multiplayer support for up to four players. This update also includes code fixes and the ability to directly drop items into the world from the inventory bar.

An update for the PS3 and Xbox 360 version of the game gives players a glimpse of what they have been missing out on in the PC version after it was updated with the 1.2 update.

The update adds a dozen new items and recipes, along with two completely new armor sets, additional light sources and building blocks, twenty new monsters, eight new zombie enemies and six new demon eye variants. The title update also addresses performance improvements from the original console release. You can get the full list of changes and editions here.

505 Games also announced that Terraria will be coming to Windows Phone 8 "soon," and that console versions of the game will get the full 1.2 update "early next year."

Eh, Terraria's new content doesn't seem to be remotely substantial. I'm gonna wait for Starbound, which looks leagues better AND so many features and so much content it's ridiculous and awesome.

I hear a lot of great things about this game; maybe I'd check it out if it weren't For Everything But Wii U.

I don't know about the mobile releases, but the PC and Xbox versions use XNA. Though there is a PS3 version out, so maybe all the fans have to do is poke Redigit more for a Wii U release.

If you don't like something I said in a post, don't just hit the dislike, let me know your thoughts! I'm interested in knowing everyone's opinions, even when they don't mesh with my own.

Indeed. It might need some tweaking for the Wii U, but it would be cool....

 

Even if this "everything but Wii U" business is.... ah heck, it's headed for the nursing home by now.

Luckily, with the PS3 and 360 hitting the ends of their lives, less and less games will release for them and I can retire the damn thing.
