Greetings Terrarians!

Welcome to the the latest Terraria community update on development progress across all active platforms! So much has happened over the last several weeks - from Switch Launch to the reveal of Terraria Mobile online multiplayer and so much more. These are exciting times indeed to be a Terrarian! Read on below to uncover the latest and greatest information around the Terraria universe.

PlayStation 4 & XBOX ONE - PIPEWORKS

The team has continued its work integrating the 1.3.5 update to both PS4 & Xbox One, and great progress has been made already! Our QA teams have started functional testing on some of the content we’ve added thus far; which means content included within 1.3.2 through to 1.3.4.

There’s still more content and updates that need to be integrated, but this is a great opportunity to see how things are shaping up as we work through this process.

After the update integrations have been completed, we’ll need to do another SDK platform update and then final testing alongside Re-Logic before we can get it in your hands.

It’s still too early for a release date, however once things are solidified we’ll let you know.



What a crazy couple of weeks! For those of you that missed the original news, we launched the Nintendo Switch version of Terraria on June 27th! So, if you haven’t already, please consider snagging a copy from the Nintendo eShop. You can find additional details here: Terraria for Nintendo Switch - Nintendo Game Details

Of course, if you would rather wait for the physical version, we also announced those release dates recently:...

Greetings Terrarians! We’re happy to announce that a new patch for Nintendo Switch will be releasing on Monday, July 15th. The patch should begin rolling out to players around 6:30 AM PDT.

This update is centered around addressing some of the most commonly reported bugs by the community.

Greetings Terrarians!

Earlier today, we conducted a community livestream direct from Terraria Mobile 1.3 running on one of our phones! While that is certainly plenty cool - and we really appreciate everyone that stopped by to hang out and chat with us - we wanted to share the big piece of news coming out of that stream for anyone that was unable to attend.

Terraria Mobile 1.3 will launch with Online Multiplayer!

That's right - for the first time ever, Mobile Terrarians will be able to connect and play with their friends regardless of location. Of course, local multiplayer (over the same wifi network) is still very much included, as you can see from the screen above. We know this is one of the biggest things that Mobile Terrarians have desired - well, that and 1.3 - for a long time, so we are beyond excited to see this come to fruition.

Of course, there are lots of details behind the scenes here that you should know, so let's dive in!

How will this work?
  • Online multiplayer will work much like non-Steam PC multiplayer does. This means that you will need to enter the IP address from the host, along with the port and any password that the host sets.
  • Once you enter all of that information and tap "Join", then you are in!
  • We chose this method to ensure that Android and iOS players can play together, rather than sticking to the device family specific systems. It's a bit more complex, but opens up way more possibilities - and players.
  • Do remember that performance and the like will be dependent on device specifications and your network. Connecting via a lower-end supported device on a 3G connection will obviously see more potential issues than a top end device over blazing fast wifi. ;)

Greetings Terrarians from around the world! We are ecstatic to announce that Terraria will be launching on Nintendo Switch on Thursday, June 27!


You read that correctly. Terraria Switch will be live to the world for digital download in 2 days! We love our fans, and since the game is ready, we figured we would just get it into your hands as soon as possible. It will take us a bit more time to get out the physical retail version, but until then we hope you will enjoy the full game available for download via Nintendo eShop. For those Terrarians reading this and approaching the emotional equivalent of bliss, please come share your love on our social communities on Discord, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, Twitch, YouTube, Steam, the forums, and everywhere else. We can't wait to read your gleeful reactions. They provide us the sustenance we need to push out updates.

To celebrate the Switch launch, we are going to be hosting daily events for prizes on Discord.

Greetings Terrarians!

Welcome to the the latest Terraria community update on development progress across all active platforms! Summer is really starting to heat up - and so is the news across every platform for Terraria. Read on below to uncover the latest and greatest information around the Terraria universe!

PlayStation 4 & XBOX ONE - PIPEWORKS

After the release of 1.3.1 our focus shifted toward patching bugs that emerged after the release of the update. In response, we released two set of hotfixes. You can find more information about what was included in those patches here.

The team has also been hard at work on content conversion, and some fun features like water distortion. We don’t have an ETA yet on when the next content update will be available, but we’ll make sure to share additional progress as it becomes available.

We also wanted to give a big shout out to Re-Logic for the announcement of their 1.4 patch! As fans of Terraria we’re as excited as you are to see what comes next!



Next, let's look at a quick update on Switch. For starters, we wanted to make sure that everyone had a chance to check out the Switch Showcase Collection that we put together and posted here on TCF just a little while ago. This is where we will keep the videos that we have produced around Switch, each showing off a different aspect of Terraria on this platform. Click the link below to give these a view!

Good day Terrarians!

As you hopefully noticed, we had some pretty big news to share at E3 today! During the PC Gaming Show, we revealed live to the world that the in-development 1.3.6 update is no more... the next update to Terraria will in fact be the fourth major update we have developed for the game, which we are calling Terraria: Journey's End!

For those that were unable to watch the reveal live, we have shared the teaser trailer below - along with some key details and a bit of what we expect will be your FAQ. As we always do, we have left out a ton of juicy details and other content and features that will be included with Terraria: Journey's End. Some of those have or might be spoiled between now and launch, but others will remain a secret until you have the update in your hands later this year. So, without further ado... we present to you Terraria: Journey's End!



  • Terraria: Journey’s End includes a full re-visit to all elements of Terraria. Over time, some things may have felt left behind or made obsolete by newer content. No more! Old things made new and new elements added to flesh out the overall experience – think you know all there is to know about Terraria? Think again!
  • Terraria: Journey’s End will include over 800 new items for players to find or craft!
  • Terraria: Journey’s End adds new foes to defeat and challenges to overcome as you seek fortune and glory.
  • Terraria: Journey’s End will see a full revamp of world generation – including overall improvements and a handful of new mini-biomes to explore.
  • Quality of Life improvements abound in Terraria: Journey’s End! From Block Swap to the...
Good Evening Terrarians!

As many of you know, our sweet little baby game just turned 8 years old! It feels like just yesterday we were hold up in a tiny hotel room in Minneapolis writing the initial design doc for 1.2! As the years have progressed and our community has grown, it has become very apparent that we all share one common goal: seeing our little game reach its full potential! With that I would like to share with you one of the many new critters you can expect to find in the upcoming 1.3.6 PC update;

There are no words to describe how much your continued support and passion means to the entire team. Terraria definitely would not be what it is today without our community and we thank you all so much for that. <3
