Massive New Terraria 1.3 PS4 & Xbox One Patch Now Available Greetings Terrarians! We’re happy to announce that a new update is now available for PlayStation 4 & Xbox One. We appreciate all the feedback and reports from the community as we worked through everything contained in this patch. This update includes several months of bug fixes, with over 600 bugs being resolved. Many of these were inter-connected and needed to be fixed together to avoid breaking something else. To keep these patch notes relatively light (as much as you can with as many fixes as this) we’ve combined several issues into a generalized fix list. Below is the “topline summary” of this update and shows just how vast it really is. If you’re so inclined, you can read the full unedited fix list here – just prepare for a lot of reading and some raw bug reports. While this patch update is massive, we suspect there will still be a few lingering issues out in the wild that will need to be patched in a future update; however, this patch should result in a significantly improved experience for everyone. Please continue sending your bug reports here: https://fs30.formsite.com/505games/form15/index.html You can provide feedback here: https://forums.terraria.org/index.php?threads/console-1-3-update-feedback-thread.64220/ The team at Pipeworks put together a quick video summary of what you can expect with this update: What’s Next? The teams at Re-Logic, 505 Games and Pipeworks Studio, have been coordinating on next steps for console. In the months ahead, we will be looking to do smaller and more frequent fix updates and the like for Console as we work down our priority list. And finally, before anyone asks, development on Mobile and Switch is being worked on by wholly separate teams in parallel to the work on PS4/XB1. Keep an eye out for new previews, teases, and monthly progress updates for those platforms in the near future.
