The weather is getting colder, the leaves are falling, but things could not be more red hot in terms of news around Terraria development, merchandise, and more! We have so much going on right now, even squeezing in this State of the Game is a challenge. Never fear, however, for we are here to share the latest and greatest across the world of Terraria. Let's get to it!
Greetings Terrarians - and welcome to The Constant!
As we revealed just a few short weeks ago, we have been hard at work in secret with our good friends at Klei Entertainment in order to bring the fans of both Terraria and Don't Starve Together a brand new free content update that faithfully pulls part of each game into the other. How will all of this work? What precisely do we have in store for our side of the crossover? Venture forth, brave Terrarians and learn more about what awaits you as The Constant collides with the world of Terraria!
TERRARIA 1.4.3 HOTFIXES
Fixed (again) Abigail's Flower growth not appearing on servers, requiring...
We have a whole handful of new merchandise offerings we wanted to share with you - just in time for the Holiday Season! We are working hard on the Terraria x DST update (as well as DR working hard on Switch and more Console fixes) - stay tuned for more on that front. For now, feast your eyes on these amazing new Terraria Merchandise items!
TERRARIA MERCHANDISE HUB
Of course, you will want to keep a close eye on our Merchandise Hub (terraria.org/store) - where these, and all of our other available merchandise items are constantly updated and collected in one place to make shopping for gifts (of gifts...
One of our favorite holidays approaches - Halloween! We don't know about you, but between the decorations, costumes, parties and more, it is just such a fun time of year. We hope that each of you gets a bit of time to indulge your spookier side and to maybe enjoy a handful of tricks or treats. Speaking of, we have a full candy pail of both to hand out for this month's State of the Game... so step right up, ring the doorbell, and let's see what horrific surprises await Terrarians everywhere!
Console Terrarians, it is here at last... welcome to Journey's End!
Initially released in May 2020 for PC, Journey's End brings Terraria to the next level, to a place where the core game can finally be called "complete". From new ways to play the game, to over 1000 new items to find and craft, to new bosses to challenge, and even a full-pass review of all content of the game for balance, graphic quality, and mechanics - truly, Journey's End has something for everyone. We cannot wait to see your reactions as you dive in to all that this update has to offer, and we hope that you thoroughly enjoy our gift to you. It has been an amazing journey indeed... but we truly feel that this end is really just a new beginning for the amazing world of Terraria.
This release will bring Console up to an equivalent (content-wise) of the...
Fall is nearly upon us, as 2021 turns towards its latter stages. We have always figured that the final few months of this year would be an intense and fantastic time for Terraria and Terrarians, and the reality is lining up with that quite well. From Xbox/PlayStation getting Journey's End in a week to ongoing work on Switch to a wide array of new merchandise items and much more - 2021 may be winding down, but Terraria is just getting started! We have a ton to go over this month, so let's jump right in!
That's right Terrarians - we have an official launch date for Journey's End to arrive on Xbox and PlayStation - September 30th!
As we mentioned a bit ago, we have been in submission with Sony/Microsoft - and we did have to conduct a second pass/submission after fixing up a few things. However, we are completely confident in this second pass - enough so that we are ready to give you all an official date.
We will have a changelog and more information available on launch day.
So, settle in for a bit longer and start the countdown, Terrarians - Journey's End will be with you soon!
It's back to school time for those of you still in school - and for everyone else, its the dog days of Summer as we look forward to cooler temperatures of what will hopefully be an amazing Fall season. One thing we know for certain is that the last few months of 2021 will see a lot of exciting happenings for Terraria! We have lots of juicy news across the board this month, so let's not waste any more time chatting!
The first half of 2021 is behind us - and what a first half it was for the world of Terraria. The second half of the year is setting up to be even bigger - with the release of Journey's End on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch all slated to come in the next handful of months alongside some pretty darned cool merchandise offerings... and maybe even a few surprises along the way. Let's jump right in and kick the second half of 2021 off properly. The first half was crazy and fun, but we are just getting warmed up!
Things are certainly heating up everywhere we are located - and the same can be said for all of the goings-on in the Terraria world. From development news to the results of the huge Tenth Anniversary Contest, this month's State of the Game is jam-packed with fun tidbits for everyone. The second half of 2021 is setting up to be even bigger than the first half... and its been a pretty darn first six months already! Hang on tight, Terrarians - 2021 is nearly half over, but the fun is just beginning!
May is here - and with it comes the start of the Summer months for some of us out there. We hope that whether you are getting ready for Summer or are already there, that you will have an amazing and relaxing time - and stay cool as things heat up. Of course, you can always head inside for some Terraria - and we do hope that we will be a big part of your summer plans! So, what's going on in the world of our various development and community teams? Let's dig right on in and find out!
Can you believe it, Terrarians? In a week's time, the game we all know and love so much will reach its tenth birthday! No doubt, it has been a long and amazing journey that we have enjoyed taking with you - one full of twists and turns, ups and downs, and more than a few surprises along the way. Even crazier is that Terraria is stronger than ever as it heads into its second decade - with no end in sight!
We could not do it or be here without the amazing and passionate support of each and every one of you - so we want to formally invite you to join in on the Terraria Tenth Anniversary Celebration! What all do we have in store? Well... here's the plan (though we won't rule out the possibility of there being more along the way):
Happy Birthday, Terraria and Terrarians! Today, the game we all know and love so much turns 10 years old. It has been a great time to look back and reflect on the past as well as look forward to what the future might hold. We hope that everyone has been able to participate in our "Pre-Anniversary" Contests thus far... and is looking forward to what today and the rest of the celebration holds. We did promise a few surprises along the way did we not? Let's dive in and open up this first birthday present...
April showers are supposed to bring May flowers... or so we are told. So, what kind of showers can you expect in April's State of the Game? Well, the kind that get everyone hyped up for what is yet to come in 2021! We certainly have some items of interest to hit for everyone this month - so enough of the flowery language and on with the news!

Greetings, Terrarians... and happy Terraria 1.4.2/Steam Workshop Support launch day!
That's right - at long last, we are able to provide an easy-to-use system and location for Terrarians everywhere to showcase their creative energies in all new ways. Starting today, everyone will be able to create, upload, share, download, and play a variety of types of game modifications within the vanilla Terraria game. Let's break down the new toys at your disposal!
NEW WAYS TO MODIFY THE CORE TERRARIA EXPERIENCE
Have a really cool map that you want to share? The best Terraria golf course ever? Maybe an epic adventure map that would blow peoples' minds? This is your chance to...
Spring has sprung... or at least it sure seems like it is trying to in our neck of the woods. We surely welcome the warmer weather with open arms. In the spirit of Spring being a time of growth and new things, we have tons of fun new tidbits to share in this month's State of the Game... including one release date (no, its not the one you are thinking of... but there is some pretty nice news in console-town to share that you won't want to miss) and much more. So, let's bask in the sun as we peruse the latest and greatest in the world of Terraria, shall we?
We remain hard at work on the litany of updates across the board as we press forward into 2021. Things are really starting to come together, and we are beyond excited for what the rest of the year has in store. That said, we did our usual numbers updates to close out 2020 and we wanted to share that once again - thanks to your beyond-amazing support - Terraria has reached another units sold milestone!
Terraria has officially exceeded 35 Million copies sold across all platforms!
As of the end of 2020...
17.2 Million sold on PC
8.5 Million sold on Consoles
9.3 Million sold on Mobile devices
Oh, and we just passed Portal 2 for the top spot on Steam250’s highest rated games on Steam to boot!
We don't know about you, but February brought lots of cold weather (and not a small amount of snow and ice) our way. Hopefully you have been able to stay warm and safe. While the weather may be chilly, the action on the Terraria development side is continuing to heat up. On the PC side, the team is doing a lot of polish work for the upcoming Steam Workshop/1.4.2 update - and things are really starting to come together. Meanwhile, our partners over at DR Studios are making fantastic strides on what is arguably the toughest task for Console 1.4: UI & Controls! Rounding it all out, we have some cool new Terraria merch and community tidbits to share. So, come in from the cold and let's sit around the fire and talk some Terraria!
As you may have seen a while back, famed YouTube and streaming star PewDiePie had a good time playing through Terraria - both in its 1.3 and 1.4 incarnations. During that time, we had a lot of fun watching his exploits in the world of Terraria, and the two sides had a chance to make some connections and have a few chats along the way. Flash forward several months, and the idea came up to do a limited edition crossover merchandise campaign!
This will be launching today on our Terraria.shop storefront (links below), and we hope you are as excited about this as we are. What will be available? Want to learn more? Read on!
