Happy Friday Terrarians!

Remember a few State of the Game's ago when we mentioned that we were working on something pretty cool that would potentially change the way that people approach certain aspects of the game? Well, the time has come to give you a peek behind the curtain at Terraria HQ and let you in on some juicy details surrounding this new feature coming to Journey's End!

Building has always been a staple of the Terraria experience - but functionally-speaking, there has never been any real reward to making fun creations outside of the adoration of the community. Similarly, everyone builds their central base and sort of shoves everything there... sure, some folks build in other biomes, but only for fun. What if we told you that Journey's End is going to change all of this up, raising building up to being a core gameplay feature with its own rewards?


Full Steam Ahead! tModLoader to Launch as Free DLC for Terraria with Journey's End!

Greetings, Terrarians!

We are just shy of three weeks out from the highly-anticipated release of Terraria: Journey's End, and we know that as the anticipation builds, so will the excitement! Well, allow us to add more fuel to that fire with the official announcement that the long-standing "Terraria mod to make and play mods", tModLoader will be coming to Steam as a free DLC for Terraria alongside Journey's End!

Though fully-integrated official mod support is not something that is feasible within the Terraria codebase, tModLoader has served faithfully as that "bridge" between the main game and the amazing library of player-created mods that exists for Terraria. With this launch, modding has never been more visible or accessible for Terrarians - so, if you have not ever tried out modded Terraria, there is no time like the present!

Terraria Mobile (Build 390) Update Notes

This update primarily covers bug fixes from the Controller + Customization Update ( as well as enhanced gamepad support.

PLEASE NOTE: It is not possible to support all controllers and there is a chance that your gamepad may not be supported, even after the update. If your controller isn’t able to connect or to have its buttons mapped after the update, please check your device setup and consult the manufacturer. Due to the sheer number of third party controllers we’re unable to provide a list of supported or unsupported devices.


Added a new settings option in Controller called Setup Controller Hardware:

Good afternoon Terrarians!

It is such an exciting time to be a part of the Terraria Community right now... from the recently-announced Journey's End launch date to the cascade of updates on Console and Mobile, it seems like there is big news coming almost every day!

Adding to this, Re-Logic is thrilled to share that we are partnering with the fantastically-creative folks over at Sanshee to produce a brand new line of Terraria merchandise. We have big plans here, so this is a space you will want to watch over the weeks and months ahead as more and more items are revealed and become available.

Happy Controller & Customization launch day, Terrarians!

At long last, the teams at DR Studios, Re-Logic, and 505 Games are pleased to bring our first Feature Update to Mobile Terraria in the post-1.3 era. The focus here is to bring a whole new level of customization to the controls and interface for players along with implementing robust and fully remappable controller support for bluetooth-capable gamepads. We are thrilled with how all of this turned out and we cannot wait to see what you all do with this newfound power! :eek:

Please send us your very best setups and gamepad mappings - we would love to see your creativity at work!

As always, please report any bugs or issues that you encounter so that we can get any needed hotfixes out there as quickly and completely as possible!

With this update out and once the hotfixes are done, we will be moving on to our next stage in our Terraria Mobile...

Parity at last! Terraria 1.3.5 Launches Today on Xbox One and PlayStation 4!

  • 54,478
  • 120

Greetings Terrarians!

At long last, we have reached the day that once seemed impossible - Terraria on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will receive the 1.3.5 update today, bringing console Terraria up to parity with the live PC version of the game! Terraria 1.3.5 brings a handful of new furniture items, a couple of really cool developer armor sets, and the long-anticipated UI size slider. As usual, the team has tried to roll in a round of bug fixes into the update. So, without further ado, here is the Terraria 1.3.5 for Console changelog!

As for what is next? The console team is planning to look into a few quality of life features we have had in mind for a while, along with any further needed bugfixing from this or prior updates. So stay tuned for that!

Before anyone asks, no this does not mean that PC and Console can now crossplay - as most of you are aware, there are a ton of other hurdles beyond just "same content"...

Greetings Terrarians!

We wanted to take a moment out of our final push to complete the eagerly-anticipated Journey's End update and celebrate a little something with our loyal and awesome community.

Terraria has officially reached the epic milestone of having sold 30 Million copies across all platforms!

Some fun details:
  • 14 Million sold on PC

What is even more crazy is that the momentum behind our game remains as strong as it has ever been - even in advance of Journey's End arriving soon, which is sure to blow the lid off once again!

To say that this floors all of us in regards to the sheer level of support and love you have shown us over the years is a massive understatement. We can only hope to return the favor by continuing to provide amazing gaming experiences for years to come (whether it be on Terraria or...

Hello Terrarians!

As mentioned previously, the Terraria team has been on a mission to further expand the range of Terraria merchandise offerings available to our fans. Our goal in this is to be able to provide a more broad array of cool stuff that will give the community a lot of choices in the ways they want to display their Terraria fandom.

Our long-time partners at Elite Gaming Gear have been making Terraria console skins for some time, with the more recent releases of the Xbox One Controller Shell and the Terraria Switch Carrying Case. If you have not checked those out, you really should - they are seriously cool. :)

One thing that Re-Logic really wanted to see happen on this front is custom Switch Joycons with a...

Happy Friday Terrarians!

Terraria merchandise is always something that we hear is in great demand. Though we certainly had great success in the past with the old toy line and the like - and we are making great strides towards bringing the community even more Terraria merchandise options - we have never had anything really targeted at the collector's end of the spectrum. Really high-end, well done collectable pieces were always something we very much wanted to see come to pass, but the opportunity just never quite presented itself in the right way.

Well, that is about to change in a big way! We are very excited to announce that we will be partnering with the amazing and talented folks over at Animegami Studios to bring the first high-end Terraria collectable merchandise to the fans!

What exactly will Animegami be working on? What are the plans and details? Read on to learn more...
