Hey there, Terrarians!

We certainly hope you enjoyed this year’s Halloween Contest as much as we did! Just like with last year’s pumpkins and costumes, the in-game builds for this year really showcase the level of creativity and dedication our community has to Terraria! With over 200 entries, this year’s contest was a smashing success! We absolutely love Halloween, and we hope to make our annual contest something everyone looks forward to each year.

If you haven't checked out all of the entries yet, you really should do so in the Entry Thread.

So, without further ado, we would like to present this year’s winners! As a reminder, we are selecting a winner and runner-up for each of our three core Terraria platforms: PC, Console, and Mobile. We will also be listing some honorable mentions as well as the winners of our contest participant random drawing. Of course, everyone that entered should have already received their “Headless Horseman” trophy/title,

Prizes for the winners – and participants – are listed in the spoiler below.

Good day everyone!

As you know, Terraria for both PS4 and Xbox One launched this week - we certainly hope everyone with a next gen console will take part and enjoy Terraria on these new platforms. In recognition of these launches, we created the brand new trailer below - enjoy!

For further details, check out our previous launch date confirmation post HERE.

Thanks for your support in welcoming Console Terraria to the Next Generation!

Good afternoon everyone!

We hope all of you console folks are excited for the PS4 (yesterday) and XB1 (tomorrow) launches this week - we always love seeing the access to Terraria expand! We have a bit of PC-related sales news for that side of the community as well. It's not a spoiler this time, but it is another chance to get your hands on the recently-launched DRM-Free version of Terraria on GOG.com!

GOG is running a Fall Sale across hundreds of games, and Terraria is gladly taking part. From now until November 25th, Terraria is selling on GOG at 50% off of the usual price of $9.99. That means you can head over there and pick up your very own DRM-free copy for the low price of $4.99! Just follow the link below to get started!

More information about the overall sale can be found at GOG.com and via their news announcement - both linked below.

We always enjoy making Terraria more accessible via sales like these, and we certainly hope you all take advantage of them!

Stay tuned as always for further updates around promotions, spoilers, contests, and more!

Happy Thursday evening everyone!

We certainly hope that our Mobile Terrarians have been enjoying the feast of Thanksgiving content that arrived yesterday - we don't know about you, but Turkor still haunts our dreams! That said, we certainly don't want our Console fans to think that we have forgotten about them.

So, without further ado, we would like to announce that the official launch dates for Terraria on the Next Gen consoles will be next week!

PS4 Logo.jpg
Terraria for Playstation 4 will launch on Tuesday, November 11th

Xbone Logo.jpg
Terraria for Xbox One will launch on Friday, November 14th
We apologize for the few-day gap between the two launches, but we didn't want to hold up either side from getting access to Terraria as quickly as possible. Terraria on PS4/Xbox One will be aligned to the current versions available on PS3/Xbox 360.

Additionally, we have added new cross play functionality to all versions of Terrarian on the Playstation platform. That means that players on the PS4 version can interact with players on the PS3 and Playstation Vita versions - choosing to either battle against or team up with the wider PSN community. We are also working very hard on cross-save compatibility for Xbox One - Xbox 360, but this will not be ready in time for the launch next week. We will keep you up-to-date on any progress made there.

To further get everyone hyped up, here are some screens followed with a few details that we suspect the community will be interested in.

Good afternoon, Terrarians!

As you may recall, we have hinted at a series of Terraria-based toys being in-development for a while within the Terraria Animated Series. Just in time for the Holiday Season, we would like to announce that the first wave of these toys will be available starting next week - and provide everyone with some further details around what we will have to offer as well as when and where you can buy them. First off, we’d like to share some thoughts from Redigit as well as Jazwares.

“We’ve listened to our fans and are excited to be working with Jazwares Inc. to bring them these Terraria products in the fall. Soon everyone will be able to collect all their favourite characters from the Terraria biomes,” said Andrew “Redigit” Spinks, President, Re-Logic and Creator of Terraria.

“We are excited to be partnering with Re-Logic to launch the Terraria toy line. Our goal is to engage and connect with gamers and teens to bring them their favourite virtual characters from the Terrarian world,” said Laura Zebersky, EVP of Global Sales and Licensing, Jazwares Inc.”

Below, you will find a comprehensive list of all that is currently available or coming soon. We will be adding to this page moving forward (we will let the Community know as we do) as new items become available. All of the available toys shown below can be purchased in Toys R’ Us stores and on Amazon (other locations may be added over time, and we will list these as they come on line) or by clicking any of the images in each toy section below – which will take you directly to an online store page for purchase. (NOTE: this feature is not currently active, but will be added ASAP)

Updated November 19, 2014: the spoiler below will contain an evolving list of know stores that will be carrying the Terraria toys!

Good afternoon, everyone!

As we noted in our earlier Pre-Thanksgiving update preview, we are poised to deliver an awesome Thanksgiving-themed update for our Mobile Terrarians. We know people have been justifiably excited about this and have desired a specific launch date. Well, we wanted to take a quick minute to answer those requests with that launch date: this Thursday, November 6th!

Here is a quick teaser description of what is coming as well as a screen shot of the Thanksgiving boss, Turkor the Ungrateful (in case you missed it earlier this week).


In the spirit of Thanksgiving this holiday season, we’re unleashing the terrifying Turkor the Ungrateful turkey boss for players to battle in Terraria. Turkor is ready to turn the tables and make you the main dish during this festive celebration. This incredible cornucopia of new game content is available for a limited time only – until Nov 30th. The Thanksgiving update will launch on Thu, Nov 6th (on App Store, Google Play and Amazon).

Along with our mobile Terraria developers, CodeGlue, we sincerely hope our Mobile Terrarians enjoy this Thanksgiving update, and we look forward to bringing you even more news on the console and mobile Terraria fronts in the weeks and months to come!
We're back in black!
Ladies, gentlemen, [Insert category of people here], welcome to our first Creation Compendium of the Terraria.org Forums!
Before we get to our amazing creations from the community, we'll go over a few, important things:

1. Entries for the next CC will go on user Darthmorf's account. He will host CC#20.
2. To enter into CC, simply upload your image onto an image hosting site (Or a video hosting site if your creation is of that variety), and then post it's link onto the CC host's profile.
3. There are no themes due to AyeAye12's wishes, so go nuts!
4. CC entries will be taken in until next month.

Now, without further ado, our creations for this month!

Good evening Members of TCF!

Happy one month anniversary! What an exciting month it has been - with over 10,000 members and nearing 100,000 posts, it's clear that TCF has started off strongly!

We have made a handful of enhancements and upgrades to TCF this afternoon - thank you all once again for your patience during the upgrade process. As this is more comprehensive than the usual Changelog, I am sharing this via a standalone post. If you have questions, please share them here or via a PM/Profile post to me.

First of all, we have updated to the latest Xenforo, which will enhance stability and fix some bugs. In addition, we have added a handful of behind-the-scenes features that will enhance the TCF experience in ways that will be visible - though some will not be readily visible. This includes some additional SpamBot protection layers and staff tools.

While we were at it, we took the time to add some new member functionality, which is outlined below.

Upgrades to Conversation System
We have made some subtle, yet handy enhancements to the PM/Conversation system. These represent a few things requested by the community coupled with some additional functionality. A brief summary:
  • You can now see which members are actively participating in a conversation - and when they last viewed the conversation. Members that have left the conversation will have their names crossed out along with a big X next to their name.
  • Conversation Starters have the option to Kick other members from Conversations. From time to time, we have heard this as a need from the community. Please note that if this ability starts to be abused, it will be removed from the individuals doing so - along with possible additional account action. If it is abused in a widespread manner, it will be limited to Forum Staff completely.

Good evening Terrarians!

We know you are eagerly anticipating Halloween next week - as evidenced by some of those fantastic Halloween contest creations we have been seeing across all three versions of Terraria - but we wanted to take a few moments to share some tidbits of information around upcoming Console and Mobile Terraria events. First up, we have the Mobile Thanksgiving Update:

A Mobile Terraria Thanksgiving Feast

Thanksgiving is here!
If you search well, you might find yourself a new little friend...but beware not to stuff his face too much, for once he turns up his nose, there is no going back!
- The Merchant just received a shipment of Turkey feathers, which can be used to spawn your very own Turkey pet
- Be careful of the Cursed Stuffing - and whatever you do, keep it away from your Turkey lest you awaken Turkor the Ungrateful!
- Though if you are brave enough to engage and defeat Turkor, you will obtain the Horn of Plenty - a bottomless regular healing potion

In addition, we are adding a handful of fixes and tweaks. These include:
·Water Candle now works even if you're not holding it.
·Now holding the buy button will keep on buying until you let go of the screen. (Same as crafting)
·If you reached maximum health of 400 HP (10 golden hearts) the game increases difficulty, mainly higher spawn chance & more mobs.
·Wraith AI had a bug where it was stuck flying on a certain height - this has been fixe

Good afternoon everyone! Apologies for the delay in providing any news, but we wanted to be sure we had a solid answer before handing out any additional information.

Along those lines, we have great news: the Thanksgiving update has been approved by both Apple and Amazon! This means that you can expect to see the update ready for download later this week for iOS/Amazon/Google...
Good day Terrarians!

Coming with the 1.3 update, we are introducing brand new liquid mechanics that are more smooth and natural-looking than the previous "blocky" liquids in Terraria.This pair of videos show a "before and after" to showcase these fantastic changes!

The new water does not adversely affect performance nor will it result in the removal of the ever-popular "water duping" bug.
