    Good Day, Terrarians! We are excited to announce that the latest update to Mobile Terraria has been submitted to Google Play and iOS and should be coming soon to your Android and iOS devices! This update comes packed with fixes as well as expanded worlds! Read on for further details...

    EXPANDED WORLDS!

    Dig! Fight! and Explore in a more expansive world over 2.5 times the size of what has been available thus far for Mobile Terrarians! The Easter Bunny has left everyone a basket brimming with goodies - from needed fixes to the long-standing player request for more room to explore, this update is literally bursting at the seams with the inclusion of Expanded Worlds!

    That's right, you will now have the option of creating a more expansive world consisting of 4200 x 1200 tiles (equivalent to "Small" worlds on PC) OR a Normal World (1750 x 1000 tiles)! Expanded worlds will also sort out some of the "interesting" worldgen quirks that existed on mobile to-date due to "overcrowding" of biomes. Way cooler than a chocolate bunny or stale marshmallow chicks!

    Its also the time of year when the Terraria Mobile Easter content is available to play!
    • Defeat corrupt bunnies to summon the Easter Bunny boss, Lepus!
    • Defeat the Easter Bunny boss to return the bunnies back to normal
    • Enjoy your reward: special weapon or item for your success!
    Full details are available here: http://terraria.gamepedia.com/Easter

    IMPORTANT NOTES

    Unfortunately, one side effect of this update is that it will bring down the curtain on iOS 7 support. Older devices that are not capable of iOS 8+ are just not capable of running what we have planned in a way that is acceptable. We remain fully committed to supporting iOS 8 and above from here on in.

    iOS: If you have an iPhone 4S or an iPad 2nd Gen, which both have less than 1GB of memory, you may experience performance issues if you create an Expanded World.

    Android: If your device has less than 1GB of memory, you may experience performance issues if you create an Expanded World. The option to create Expanded Worlds is not available on devices with less than 512MB.

    EVERPLAY: Though the Everplay button is back, it does not yet function properly. We are looking to add back full Everplay functionality in the next update - so hang in there just a bit longer!

    AMAZON, WINDOWS PHONE, & BUG FIXES
    This update also includes a second round of bug fixes from the ongoing list (thanks again for all of those informative bug reports - keep them coming!), with more to come! Check out the full list of fixes in the changelog below. Before we get to that, however, here is the latest for our long-suffering Amazon and Windows Phone Terrarians:

    AMAZON: We are very close on this. Sent the latest up to Amazon this week and hoping to hear back from them soon and that it sorts everything out so that we can push all of the goodies from the past few updates your way!

    WINDOWS PHONE: We think we have finally sorted this one out! We have submitted a build that should not only fix the crashes, but also provide WP players with all of the updates and fixes they have been missing along the way. There is one very important exception to this that we are still exploring. If you have a Lumia 640 LTE, unfortunately, Terraria is still crashing on this device. We are exploring this issue for diagnosis and fixing, but we did not want to hold off on getting the update out to the other WP users.

    Also note that this update will only work on WP devices with at least 1 GB of RAM.

    You should get the crash fix (except for Lumia 640) shortly, and then we will be following up with Expanded Worlds for our Windows Phone players shortly after that (may be 2-3 weeks)

    Hi bro (I apologise for spelling mistakes[i'm from poland]) My terraria isn't working and when i press the play buton ,the world "synchronization " jumps out next to my terraria steam ikon and it's shutting down immediately. I have all requirements and files: "XNA framework4.0 ", "Framework4.5 Net ".I am begging for help because nowhere have I found the solution to my problem.I alredy reinstaled the steam and terraria and I also did the "check the cohesion of files of the game" on steam (it did not work).

    Hey there Terrarians, please be mindful of one issue which we have just discovered in the iOS 'Expanded World' update due to go Live v.soon. If you receive a call OR press the Power button whilst playing (to lock the screen), the App will appear to be frozen when you return to it. You just need to press the Home button to suspend the game and then resume it. You can resume by either pressing the App icon or performing a double press of the Home button and then selecting the App via the multitasking menu. The game will pop back up with the Pause menu displaying which is the normal behavior from pressing the Home button or suspending the App. The issue freezes the game screen, so your first impression is that it has crashed as it appears unresponsive, but that's not the case. Rest assured, this issue is now fixed and will make it into a Hot fix update which we will try and push through and out ASAP.

    Once we hit Release, it starts to propagate across the Stores. We would hope to be in all Stores within 24-48 hours.

    Hype hype hype! Can you release more bug fixes though? Still an extraordinary amount of bugs in the game.
    No you can't, it only becomes expanded if you create a new world.

    The connect to Google play and Google drive options don't work they accomplish nothing (android) also even though I have just over 1gb free on internal storage and about 14.5 GB on an SD card it says I have less than 1gb when I try to create a large world and then crashes before I can even enter a world name
