Greetings Terrarians!

Can we just say that we are always so excited when Spring finally arrives? Everything turning green, the temperature outside finally making it pleasant to get outdoors - new life springing up everywhere. Sort of how it has felt on the Terraria teams as well, with everyone finding their stride again as we push towards the completion of the 1.4.5 update. Even so, it is hard not to look beyond that into the work in front of us to try and make crossplay a reality (no promises!) and whatever else lies ahead. This is a really exciting time for our team, and we hope that all of you are ready to embark on the journey ahead alongside us. However, that's a story for another State of the Game.

For now, let's get rolling on the latest and greatest Terraria news!

TERRARIA - 1.4.5 IS DRAWING EVER-CLOSER

The team has started to adjust to the new normal, and we have accomplished a lot over the past month towards getting Terraria 1.4.5 back on track. We are starting to get a more clear sense for what remains to finish and for when we might be able to get this out to everyone. No, that does not mean that we have a date to give you yet - unfortunately, QA and Balancing work is part of what remains to do... and that will be where we are most challenged in the new structure. Still, we hope that we can provide a time frame for 1.4.5 soon.

As for what the team has been working on, we have recently been laying the groundwork to add a few new languages to Terraria for PC - Japanese, Korean, and (potentially) Traditional Chinese. These are large playerbases that have had Terraria on other platforms, but have never had it localized to their native language. This will also be important for Crossplay (should we be successful in those efforts), we feel, to enable Terrarians in those countries to have a shared experience.

That said, is it spoiler time? Why, I believe it is!

A little while back, Redigit teased that a Shimmer Water Gun might be a thing...

Well, how about we show you this beauty in action for this month's spoiler? To be clear, the Shimmer Water Gun only transforms NPCs - for all other uses, you will have to seek out the Aether...

In case you missed it on Twitter a week or so ago, Crowno shared his revamps of Boss Trophies to go alongside the Banner revamps we showed last time!

Hello everyone!

It has been a month since we released/announced the 1.4.4 tModLoader preview was ready for modders to start porting their mods - and what a month it has been! We are so pleased to report that the port to 1.4.4 is well underway for several major mods, and the feedback that modders and other early users have shared with us thus far has been invaluable towards fixing bugs and improving the features of TML 1.4.4. Once again, we encourage all modders to get their mods up to date so we can release tML 1.4.4 to players in a timely fashion, allowing players to dive right back into their favorite mods on day one.

tModLoader Steam Workshop - New Mods every Day!
TML SW Banner.png
The TML Steam Workshop has over 4500 mods already! Coupled with the in-game mod browser, the TML Steam Workshop is a great way to explore what modded Terraria has to offer - check it out today by clicking the banner above!

WHAT'S NEXT FOR TML?

More of the same - getting TML 1.4.4 ready for prime time and then waiting to see what Terraria 1.4.5 will have in store and how we will need to adjust/account for any changes to bring TML up-to-date.

As always, you can keep track of the current progress and much more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)


Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader)

TMODLOADER ISSUES/BUGS

The Re-Logic team does not directly develop TML, so bugs with TML are best reported via the links below.

CONSOLE & MOBILE - DR STUDIOS

Now that the development work on the technical updates is complete, the team at DR has shifted gears towards bringing 1.4.5 over to Console and Mobile platforms! The technical update (1.4.4.9.2) should be rolling out to everyone soon, so keep an eye out for that and let us know if you encounter any issues whatsoever.

With that said, wish us luck on the Terraria 1.4.5 path... as with Labor of Love, our goal is to launch simultaneously alongside PC - hopefully with a GLOBAL simultaneous launch this time around. We may have some other surprises in store, but it is much too soon to know if those will work out so we will just leave you wondering for now.


So, keep an eye out for 1.4.4.9.2 and look forward to us sharing our progress as we catch up to what the Re-Logic team has already done for 1.4.5!

Oh yeah, and wish us luck as we get prepared to enter the wild world of Crossplay development soon.


Until next time, Console & Mobile friends - thanks for all of your love and support!

The team is feeling pretty good about console & mobile at this point, but we know that the bug reporting never stops! So, please, as you run into any issues, be sure to file a Bug Report via the links below!

TERRARIA MERCHANDISE UPDATES

COMING SOON: TERRARIA CHIBICHAN MINIFIGURES!

Terraria Chibichans Teaser2.png
Our fantastic partners over at Terraria.Shop are at long last ready to announce that the first lineup of Terraria minifigures will be soon be available! This is a product line that the Re-Logic team has been looking forward to for some time. The old Terraria figures from back in the day were good in their way, but we are very excited about the look and style of these! We really feel that they capture the style of Terraria in a way that feels unique and authentic. We hope you agree!

Expect more details about the rollout of the first wave of Terraria Chibichans sometime next month! If you want to be sure not to miss the announcement, you can sign up for the mailing list at Terraria.Shop as well.

This is the first of a lot of cool Terraria merch offerings that we have been teasing over the past few months. We are looking forward to sharing even more in the months ahead!

TERRARIA GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES

The Book One collection, which will be available later this year via book retailers is drawing ever-closer. More on this when we have details (working on a new cover for this as well!).

We are aware that some folks out there are still having issues with receipt of their Issues 1-4 orders. For everyone that has not yet received your shipment for Issues 1-4, you should be receiving an email from 50 Amp Productions soon. If you do not receive this email and you still have not received your package, please reach out to [email protected] immediately so that we can take care of this ASAP. Feel free to let us at Re-Logic know ([email protected] is the best way to be sure it is seen) if you are having any issues as well, but the 50amp email above should be the best way to sort out any stragglers out there!

In addition, the 50amp team is doing a full review of fulfillment processes to ensure that a repeat of this does not occur with any future issues.


We have a final script for Issue 5, so work on translating that over into art can begin in earnest. Continuing in our line of teaser images... here is a peek at another member of the fearsome Goblin Army, the Goblin Peon!

I've been wanting this for YEARS!!!🥛🥛🥛 (literally since the localization update back in 1.3.5) (and before I had the PC version as well)

Now all that's left if for Terraria to add official Esperanto support. A man can dream...

My girlfriend and I have already played Terraria using crossplay now.
I like to play Terraria on PC only, using keyboard and mouse. So i installed Android emulator on PC. She was playing on the phone. To create a local network, we used "ZeroTier One" app.
So crossplay is already real!
Therefore, I am sure that Re-Logic will be able to introduce crossplay into the game. Good luck! And thanks for your work!
