    The dev team has been working hard on 1.3.6 and the artists shared some of the new backgrounds on Twitter recently, so I've put them all together for you here! You can click the image for a link to their original tweet and make sure to give them a follow ;)

    And The Hallow by @Lazure

    There isn't a release date yet but we are super excited to continue sharing bits and pieces of 1.3.6 while it comes together! Thanks :)

    Ooh I love that mountain valley for the forest!

    Oh my, this is getting better and better. Sure it's still a 1.3.6 and not a 1.4.0?
    Also, the next world I create will have a mushroom biome from coast to coast.

    Edit: I also don't get why there are people complaining about the mountain background. It looks absolutely gorgeous.

    Edit2: I notice crystals on the surface in the Hallow screenshot. Will we occasionally find crystals on the surface?

    Look amazing !
    Can't wait to play the new update !

    I am also starting to wonder.
    Because for the amount of spoiler that they give us, this is definitely a really big update.
    So much that it's shouldn't be 1.3.6, but 1.4...
    Maybe that they make us think that it is 1.3.6, but at the end, they are gonna come and say "Guy, 1.3.6 has been cancelled, we are not making it anymore... Here 1.4 to pardon us ;)".

    That probably only the background change.
    If they were to put crystal on the surface, it would break the balance and become too op.

    I know, it is so inviting. It kind of makes me want to be outside, but then I remember I want to be in the air conditioning and play video games lol

    Maybe they thought the mountains would look better with more contrast or a darker, cooler shade of grey? I think it's fine, but I can see the argument for this background being more subdued than people are used to.

    The new mushroom background is beautiful. Currently the mushroom background is so dark that I can barely see anything except during the brief biome transition, so this is a very welcome change.

    Glad to see the progress! This likely confirms mobile for 2019, not 2020. Great.

    This is about the PC 1.3.6 update, which is nothing to do with mobile, and is worked on by a separate team - as such they do not effect each other's development schedules :)

    We haven't confirmed or announced a release date for mobile yet. This is PC content for the upcoming 1.3.6 update. But we will absolutely share when we have more details on when you can expect 1.3 for mobile :)

    Lovin' it! Keep it up, Re-logic team!

    That's almost what I'm wondering at this point. Considering how long this update has been in the works, and how much they've been adding and revising, not to mention all the stuff that's not even been revealed yet, this is starting to feel more like a major update than a lesser one.

    These backgrounds... man, they are pretty. I especially love the shading detail on the Mushroom & Forest biome backgrounds.

    Also, pastel Hallow trees, apparently. I love it. :pinky:
