10th AnniversaryTerraria is Turning 10 Years Old - Celebrate with Us!
It will be "difficult" to find a way to release the item (so that everyone that currently own terraria is able to purchase this "special edition" for free).
They can, however, simply bundle it with the current game (in the form of a small "update"), so all users can "update" and they will have the two "copies" of the game.
The user can then decide which game to launch. The save location however might need some adjustment.
It will, however, be quite a problem if Relogic had not done the version control (and archive previous versions properly) that 1.0 was lost among the many updates.
If they had, publishing it is actually quite easy.
