Greetings Terrarians!

In case you missed it, 2022 is certainly turning into a lovely year for Terraria! From starting the year with a pair of awards to last month's reveal of the big "parity" update for Console & Mobile Terrarians to this month's surprise sneak peek into the upcoming - and aptly named - Labor of Love Update for Terraria, how can you not love all that is going on in the world of Terraria right now? Of course, we couldn't do any of this without the love and support that you show us each and every day. So thank you, once again and we love you all!

Now... on with the show!

Greetings Terrarians!

As we have mentioned over the past few months, the team has been hard at work on an update to further optimize Terraria for Steam Deck play - inclusive of performance and controls. With the Steam Deck officially shipping out to players starting today, we are pleased to be able to push this update out to everyone just in time! For Terrarians that are not playing on Steam Deck at this time, dont fret, as we have some quality of life, balance, and bug fixes for you as well. Without further ado, let's dive right in!

Please note that this update also includes an update to the Terraria Dedicated Server application. You can always find the latest version of this at the bottom of Terraria.org, but we have included a link below for today's version as well:

Terraria State of the Game - January 2022

Greetings Terrarians!

We missed you over the holiday break - between all of the usual family and friends, running around, and with more or less all of the pertinent news items being covered off at the end of November, we decided to push off the State of the Game and just move on into the new year. So here we are, 2022 has kicked off with a bang. Week one saw Terraria winning the 2022 Labor of Love Steam Award as well as the launch of Journey's End on Nintendo Switch. Week two saw the re-imagined China Mobile version of Terraria winning TapTap's 2021 Game of the Year. Behind the scenes, things have been equally busy, with each development team hard at work on what is to come later this year. What all does that entail, you say? Let's get into the details!

Happy New Year!



Terraria: Journey's End Now Available on Nintendo Switch!

Switch 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 Switch up to an equivalent (content-wise) of the 1.4.0.5...

What else can we say but wow. Just wow, Terrarians. You are all simply amazing and it is so humbling to finally be able to pull down the win here - and against rather stiff competition. We know it is 100% due to your loyal support of our team and game over the years, and it is truly a pleasure to be able to work on an amazing game such as Terraria and then to share it with all of you.

Terraria truly is a Labor of Love for our team - like a family member to us - and to see it gain recognition such as this means more than we can say. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much to each and every fan out there and for each and every vote. It has been and remains our honor to deliver the Terraria experience to you. We look forward to an even brighter future ahead - with Steam Deck optimizations, content parity for all platforms, and (hopefully, fingers crossed!) crossplay later this year. Journey's End may have...​

Greetings Terrarians!

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.

Greetings Terrarians!

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!​
