    Hello console and mobile Terrarians!

    We are in the home stretch! The teams are submitting the updates to the various platforms this week. This includes XB1, X360, PS4, PS3, PSVita, Windows Phone, iOS, Amazon, and Google Play. If all goes well, you should be playing the update by Christmas! Once we have approvals, I will try to update you with the details.


    Mobile users will be 100% up-to-date with PC 1.2.4, barring any technically-impossible things.

    Consoles (XB1, X360, PS4, PS3, PSVita) will be missing a handful of content (listed below) that will be added during Q1 of 2016 due to the new and improved QA team being rockstars. This ultimately left us with a choice: more content with more bugs, less content with fewer bugs, or an approximate 2 month delay. We decided that providing a more stable game within the time window that we gave is most important, so we prioritized the bug fixing over the missing content or the delay. Again, our plan is to add the missing content – along with any additional fixes needed that come up post-launch – as soon as possible in early 2016. We feel it's the best path overall and will continue to keep you as up-to-date as we can.

    Think you made a good choice on adding some right now and add the rest later so you don't bring too many bugs. Will be looking forward to the final updates

    VERY glad that everything is in submission! Congrats on the milestone for everyone. Now we wait on the Apples and Sonys and Microsofts of the world. :)

    On the console front - quite unfortunate, but I would have made the same choice. Glad there is at least a plan to fast-track the missing stuff. Also glad the extra time on bugs was taken - really hoping that yields a cleaner and more stable game in the end.

    I am beyond excited to see all the console and mobile Terrarians finally get their hands on all this amazing content! Be sure to share all the amazing builds and experiences that you have (plus any issues) once you do! :)

    Yes! I'm gonna love this update, I can do frostmoon (if updated then) and get some good loot from it, I wonder what other seasonal events will be created for Terraria, we have Halloween, Christmas, maybe we could do something like a holiday more offbrand? I cant really think of any right now.

    This is great! Console is finally getting some love. But we psvita users remember the horrible "crash-on-saving" bug... Is that finally gone?

    Great! Going to create a new world when the update rolls out, and start from pre-hardmode with a new character! Hope they fixed random crashes on android though, or the update wont be enough enjoyable.
