Old One's Army & Dungeon Defenders 2 Crossover Content


This update includes all of the content from our awesome crossover event with Dungeon Defenders 2! Of course, if you missed the equally amazing Terraria content in DD2, now would be a fantastic time to check that out as well.

Old One's Army Invasion Event
  • Invasion event featuring enemies, weapons, and gameplay mechanics inspired by Etheria - the Dungeon Defenders 2 universe
  • This event will play like no other in Terraria - featuring a brand new mechanic where you protect an artifact from invading enemies with the help of a unique defensive structure system
  • Multi-tiered event allows players at multiple points in the game to experience scaling difficulty, with corresponding loot
  • Enjoy rewards in the form of armor, weapons, pets and more, all straight from the Dungeon Defenders 2 universe!
The Tavernkeep, a new NPC from the Dungeon Defenders universe, has arrived. He will be offering a variety of Etherian loot and gear in exchange for an exclusive currency earned by playing the new invasion!

Completely redesigned liquid visuals. Enjoy the ripples and waves, as the player, enemies, and projectiles now have a visible impact when they enter and move through water

The Blizzard weather event now has a new, unique ambient sound when active

Toggles for recently-added visual and water effects that will allow players to balance beautiful visuals and performance to fit their preferences

A new ability for Summoner players to direct their minions to attack a specific target



New Items - Etherian Style
  • Four new sentry summons, each of which has three tiers of potency
  • Ten new weapons
  • Eight new armor sets
  • Five new accessories
  • Two new pets
  • One new light pet
  • Three new boss masks and trophies
  • Two new decorative furniture items
  • Defender's Forge - A brand new “Personal Safe” style furniture item, in the style of the Piggy Bank and Safe
  • Defender Medals - A brand new currency which can be spent with the Tavernkeep for much of the above

New Enemies
  • Ten new enemies, many of which can become visibly (and mechanically) more powerful as gameplay progresses
  • Two new invasion style mini-bosses: Dark Mage and Ogre
  • New Old One's Army Boss: the fire-breathing Betsy!
Other
  • New musical track based on the Dungeon Defenders 2 OST, complete with a matching Music Box
  • Over 200 new sound effects inspired and adapted from Dungeon Defenders 2

Summoner Changes
  • The way Sentry Summons function has been changed somewhat.
    • Outside of the DD2 Invasion event, you now have a limit of one sentry summon at a time
    • Some of the 1.3.4 content can increase this limit
    • Unlike before, when the sentry limit is above 1, you can summon multiple versions of the same sentry. For instance, with a sentry limit of 3, you could summon 3 Frost Hydras at the same time.
  • Summoners can now direct their minions to attack a specific target of their choosing. However, if the minions do not have line of sight, they will continue to attack targets at random.


Of course, all of the above only represents the bulk of the content additions. There are a lot of other changes "under the hood" to performance, balancing, bringing in PC version changes to functionality and bug fixes, etc. as well as additional items that we have not listed above. For those interested in some "light reading material", we have placed the full raw changelog from Pipeworks below:

That SHOULD be fixed in this update. It was for me on my kit at least (and I used to be able to make it happen 100% of the time).

Really amazing updates etc.
However, please can you just tell us if you don't plan to release the local multiplayer on the Nintendo Switch. The wait is getting ridiculous now!
I absolutely love Terraria and used to play it multiplayer on another platform, but not as good as just single player.
 

First Boss

The Destroyer
Also, this is either a bug or an intentional nerf, but I guess we can't summon a lunar portal and a rainbow crystal at the same time anymore, for some reason, this, along with many other nerfs and buffs and other things, weren't in the mini changelog. Will you give us a full changelog of EVERYTHING?
