As Unit said, this is just for testing purposes.

It is not REQUIRED for you to send it in or to do anything.

When the update launches, the game should convert your saves automatically - and it will also keep the old save format files intact in the off chance that something goes awry... so that if a hotfix to that system is needed, it can be done and then the system can have a crack at doing it again until all is well.

I really hope that 1.4 for Switch fixes some of the issues that I experienced while playing, one of them being the lag that occurs during sandstorm events. Anyway I’m really excited for the Switch update!

So word is going around that the update will be released on 8/25, but this is incorrect. Submission is happening on 8/25, with the release being a couple of weeks after that, if all goes well.

Greetings Terrarians!

The first half of 2021 is behind us - and what a first half it was for the world of Terraria. The second half of the year is setting up to be even bigger - with the release of Journey's End on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch all slated to come in the next handful of months alongside some pretty darned cool merchandise offerings... and maybe even a few surprises along the way. Let's jump right in and kick the second half of 2021 off properly. The first half was crazy and fun, but we are just getting warmed up!

STEAM WORKSHOP NEWS

The level of quality and quantity on the Terraria Steam Workshop just continues to climb - over 20,000 packs and worlds so far, which is just insane! If you have not checked out the Workshop yet, what are you waiting for?

TERRARIA WORKSHOP DEVELOPER'S CHOICE SELECTIONS
The team has their eyes on a handful of picks for our next round of Developer's Choice - but we want to give a bit more time to further evaluate and to let more packs and worlds arrive. Look for our next round of selections next month! That said, we are pretty darned proud of the ones that are there already.

WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON?

We know that everyone is starving for more information on what the Re-Logic team has been working on together. Again, we cannot give a ton of details here other than to say the Game Jams continue unabated. In fact, our first full Jam is almost coming to its completion. Not sure if or when we will ever share what that turned out to be (again, these are not intended to be fully fleshed out expansive games)... but you never know.

So, for now, we will have to just continue to ask for your patience and trust in our process as we continue our own journey towards whatever lies ahead.

Thanks again, Terrarians - we are as always blown away by your support!

TMODLOADER NEWS - TML TEAM



Hello everyone!

We provided a brief update on our progress on Steam just after the last State of the Game - this is definitely worth checking out so that you can see the latest and greatest:



As always, you can keep track the current progress and such more in real time at tModLoader/tModLoader (But note that the completion percentage doesn't mean anything, because issues and PRs don't have weights.)

An official pre-launch playable alpha/beta version remains very likely - more on that as we have more to share. After we're done with that testing and any related fixes, release will be very close! At this time, however, we still can't give anyone an ETA for the full release.

Developers who are willing to contribute may do so by doing PRs to the tModLoader/tModLoader branch. (See tModLoader/tModLoader)

TMODLOADER ISSUES/BUGS

The Re-Logic team does not directly develop TML, so bugs with TML are best reported via the links below.

PlayStation 4, XBOX ONE, Nintendo Switch - DR STUDIOS

XBOX & PLAYSTATION

Greetings, Terrarians! As we shared last month, Console Journey's End is now in the Beta phase - where we get to do all of the fun and hard work of testing, fixing, and optimizations... followed by more testing, more fixing, and even more optimizations.

So, what's the latest? The team has made a ton of progress across the board this past month, and we are happy to report that - barring any unforeseen issues - we are planning to submit Terraria: Journey's End to Sony and Microsoft within the next few weeks! Once we reach that stage, the timing and what happens will be a bit out of our hands (how long it takes them to review, what they want fixed, etc) - but this will be a major milestone towards getting the update in your hands!

Nothing fancy to show off this month - the team has their heads down on the final push. Wish us luck!

MOBILE - DR STUDIOS

Hello everyone!

Hang in there, our Mobile friends - your time in the spotlight will come again soon enough. As you will see above, we are getting ever-closer to that console release, after which we will be entering the era of "Parity" where we are going to be pushing for a world where all Terrarians are on the same version. Those will be exciting times, and we are thrilled to have you along for the ride with us! :)



Thanks as always for the honor and trust you give us each month to work on Terraria - it is not a responsibility that we take lightly, and we look forward to bringing more amazing things to you all as we move forward.

Greetings Terrarians!

Here's the latest and greatest happenings on the Community side of things. Thanks as always for being the most engaged and awesome gaming Community ever!

TERRARIA MERCHANDISE STORE HUB

As we have brought on more and more amazing merchandise partners over the last two years, it became apparent to us that we would need some sort of centralized "hub" from which Terrarians could easily see and browse all that is available. We have been working on this behind the scenes, and we are happy to share that our first version of this is now available on Terraria.org!

View attachment 332784
Click the banner above to head to Terraria.org/store now!​

This will be your one-stop-shop where we will have all of the currently-active Terraria merchandise on display. If you see something that you like, simply click on the item and you will be whisked away to the storefront of whichever partner makes that particular product so that you can check out further details and complete your purchase.

Everything is laid out by category and easily navigated via the index and/or search. Please let us know any feedback that you might have so that we can make this experience the best that it can be!

We will be keeping this up to date and continuously adding to the offerings available here - so this is a page you will want to bookmark and check often!

TERRARIA MERCHANDISE UPDATES

We still have a handful of partnerships and products that remain under wraps, but that we will be revealing just as soon as the time is right - our plan is to have a LOT more out for the holidays. That said, what better time than the State of the Game to check in on news from our existing partners as well as to shine a light on some other things that are in the works?

I am quite excited
 
Looking forward to playing Journey's End on PS5. Then, eventually on Switch, as soon as 1.4 does get released on Nintendo Switch. But until that happens, I'll play it on PS5

Stupid question cause its coming out inevitably but will the patch notes per chance be posted prior to launch on console i would assume there is some difference in patch notes and such since compared to pc due to console exclusive and pc exclusive content.

Well the patch notes wouldn’t be from console 1.3 because console 1.4 is ported over mobile and hugely changed and optimized for console from what I’ve seen, so necessarily it won’t have those bugs as hoped

what exclusive content?

all the versions are going to be exactly the same, i'm pretty sure.

the only thing exclusive to PC is the use of mods, which is only because sony and the others prefer to keep mods away from their platforms.

which i find odd, considering the recent remaster of quake allows mods, even on console...

I think they might mean exclusive content from prior to 1.4 but I could be wrong
