I don’t see the Fire 7 generation 7 listed on the devices that will get the update, sorry. So your device is not able to receive the update. But you can still enjoy the game as it is without the update.

Hi GriptONight,
Please don't double post on this forum (or in this case quadruple post). If you have something to add, please edit your last message to include it instead of sending a new one. I've merged the posts for you this time, so remember for the next. Thanks.

Terraria was released on Amazon years ago - and the pre-1.3 version has been around and not update for at least 2-3 years. So, there was no recent amazon launch.

As for why the new version won't work, 1.3 is a substantial step-up in hardware requirements (as it was on PC and consoles) - so whereas 1.2 may work fine on a given device, that does not guarantee that it will on 1.3. Part of the blessing/curse that is a game that has been updated for nearly 10 years now.... technology moves during that time, and if we lock everything down to what was possible/available a decade ago, then we shortchange the overall game on more contemporary devices.
