Good day, Terrarians!

We hope that everyone has had an amazing time with the most recent updates across the board. On our end, we just finished our first official Re-Logic in-person meeting and we are more excited than ever for the future of Terraria and our company!

On that front, we would like to give each of you a long-overdue update on a project that so many of you have asked about over the past several months - Terraria: Otherworld.

When last we checked in on Otherworld, we let everyone know that the project was not ready, that we weren't going to sacrifice our standards for deadlines, and shared some sweet spoilers of the Crimson biome. Since then, we have been mostly quiet on the project. That silence ends today - we are going to share what's going on, why, and where we are heading.


So, what happened?
To keep it short and simple, at the beginning of this year, we undertook a full in-depth review of the project versus our standards, expectations, and vision for the game. It was pretty clear to us at the time that Otherworld needed quite a bit of work - and even a good bit of rework - in a number of areas in order to hit that mark.

We then spent some time in detailed discussion among ourselves and also with Engine Software in regards to how best to get things to where they need to be. We then made a list of requested reforms and changes and such. As a part of this, the project team at Engine now has a new lead designer and art lead along with other changes made to better align to our vision for the game. On top of that, our two teams have laid out clearly what needs to be done and are pushing forward executing towards that roadmap to deliver the game we expect - and...

Good day, Terrarians!

We cannot help but to be really excited about the ongoing work – and that we are finally able to share it with you! So, without further ado, we are sharing a handful of plans with you today:

What’s happening with old-gen?
  • Engine Software is currently working on an update that will be focused on clearing out the most impactful bugs that our QA and/or Re-Logic QA have been able to uncover - along with keeping close track with anything that the Community has raised. This will encompass over 100 fixes in total. If you have any major items in particular that you would like to inquire about, please let us know.
  • This update will unfortunately be the final update for PS3, XB360, and PS Vita
  • Targeted release timeframe is September 2016
  • The great news is that you can continue to play these versions of Terraria (both online and offline) as a fully functioning – and still incredibly fun – game.
    • No further updates will be coming for old gen
    • Current-Gen consoles (XB1, PS4) will continue to receive updates (more on that below)
    • Future updates to current-gen platforms will unfortunatelty make cross-play with old-gen platforms impossible

Why are we no longer providing updates for old-gen?

  • Simply put, these consoles are 12 years old...
Hello Mobile Terrarians!

Good day Terrarian's!

As some of you may have seen we will be splitting 1.3.2 into 2 smaller updates. 1.3.2 will focus some small quality of life changes as well as a silly new Birthday event! 1.3.3 will touch on more quality of life as well as Underground Desert!

We intend to release 1.3.2 in less than one months time. We will be losing one week of development time because the team is coming to the states! Yoraiz0r and Crowno will be traveling from Israel and Brazil to meet our Indiana based team for the first time this Monday and Arkhalis will be traveling from Colorado. We will be talking about the future of Terraria and other projects while blowing up the sky on celebration of the 4th!

With that please enjoy this lovely gif of things to come:

Good day, Terrarians!

It is so hard to believe that our beloved Terraria Community Forums is coming up on two years old! In that time, we have seen the build up to and eventual launch of Terraria 1.3, the subsequent 1.3.1 update, the release of Terraria on the Nintendo 3DS, and much more! We hope you will join us in our strong belief that this is just the beginning of what is possible for this community and the future of both Terraria and Re-Logic. As we head toward Year Three, we are looking forward to a healthy TCF, excited to watch it grow even more as we receive a boost in members in the near future.

With all of these events going on, we do recognize that there will be a near-term need for additional people to help out - thus, we are going to be conducting a fresh round of moderator applications! With the possible surge of new activity, and slight coverage gaps, we're hoping to select a small amount of people to assist us on the forum staff.

Below, you will find the process for applying to be a moderator. It is much the same as before, with some improvements based upon learning from any shortcomings from the last time. So, if you have passion for the community and a desire to make the earnest commitment to volunteer to help, we are looking forward to seeing you toss your hat into the ring!

As always, if you have any questions, a TCF staff member should be able to address them.

Thanks as always for your support!


In addition to ramping up in general, we are still seeking to fill a few gaps as best we can on TCF. Since our last application period, we are seeking to supplement our team in two areas: early morning coverage and the Mobile version of Terraria.

- Morning Coverage: The times were are looking for are from approximately...

Greetings, Terrarians!

We are pleased to share that the latest update for iOS and Google Play has been submitted for release and should be live to your devices in the very near future - likely over the next 24h!

As a reminder for anyone that missed our earlier announcement, this update will bring Extra Save Slots as well as a World & Characters "Save" Backup Function to Mobile Terraria! Beyond doubling your existing number of save slots for worlds and characters, this long-desired feature will allow you to copy worlds and characters (like you can on PC, for example) - allowing you to create regular backups of your most important saves. We hope this will help lessen the sting in the event that you run into some nasty issue that messes up your worlds or characters! In addition, this new functionality will allow players to do things like moving save files from device A to device B using the cloud.

Extra Save Slots
  • Characters: Players will now have access to 6 Local and 6 Cloud save slots
  • Worlds: Players will now have access to 6 Local and 3 Cloud save slots
These save slots are available for use with the new Backup Function and/or to create new Characters and Worlds - it will be entirely up to you in regards to how you choose to use them!

Backup Function
For further clarity, this will allow players to make a copy of any existing local or cloud file to any other open cloud or local save slot that they have. For example:
  • Local - Local
  • Local - Cloud
  • Cloud - Local
Unfortunately, Cloud - Cloud is not possible at this time.

These will all now be possible for the file safety of our players and for their convenience when moving between devices.

To learn all about how the new Backup Function works and how to make it work, we put together a quick Instructions Thread together for your use:

Hello Terrarians!

2D_Terraria-WiiU_PEGI small.jpg

The Terraria Wii U digital version is available starting today in EU, with the US version to launch digitally on June 16th.

Europe Store Page (UK)
US Wii U Store Page

As you may have seen previously, we expect the retail copies to be available on June 24th in Europe and June 28th in North America (if you are interested in picking up a physical copy).

We hope that everyone really enjoys the Terraria experience on Wii U - we think it is pretty awesome ourselves!


In addition to the Wii U news, we are also pleased to announce that the long-awaited latest console update is live today for Playstation devices (PS3, PS4, and Vita)! You should be seeing it soon, if you haven't already. Below you will find the new content and a list of bugs that were fixed. Some of the bugs are specific to Xbox One and 360, those will take affect within the next couple of weeks.

The Xbox One and 360 updates (with the same content and fixes) are still in submission with Microsoft and we will update you here, as soon as we are made aware of an approval/launch date.

Remember, you can report bugs here.


*Note* This list contains bugs that have been addressed, not the fix/change. For example, "Acorns will not grow on sand when planted" is the bug, so Acorns will now grow on sand, since it has been fixed.

  • The 'Arctic Diving Gear' is not visible
  • Rich presence information is not localized for all supported languages.

Hello Terrarians!

We would like to share the latest on the Console and Mobile side of Terraria development. There is a lot of information to share today, including some GREAT news on the mobile side! We can't thank you enough for your patience and continued support while we work to bring fixes and new content to consoles and mobile devices.



As you know, the Frost Moon update launched a couple of weeks ago in Europe, but we identified a nasty multiplayer bug that we quickly fixed and resubmitted to both NOE and NOA. At the same time, we pulled the American update before it went out so that we limited exposure to that bug. Well, we have good news to report - Terraria 3DS v1.03 (Frost Moon Update + Multiplayer Bug Fix) is set to release in Europe on June 10, with the American release to follow soon after (we'll update as soon as we have confirmation on the American date). You can refer back to this post to see what is coming to 3DS along with more save slots!
