Greetings Terrarians!

Happy Halloween! This is absolutely one of our favorite holidays of the year - a time to watch some scary movies, dress up as your favorite monsters, eat way too much candy, and just be a kid (again). October was a massive month for Terraria, with Mobile receiving Journey's End, PC 1.4.1 coming out, and Console Journey's End development ramping up to full speed. With that said, let's dig into our pumpkin-shaped pail here to see what treats await - no tricks, we promise! :pumpking:

PC - RE-LOGIC

This month, we were able to get the 1.4.1 update into your hands at long last! We hope that everyone is enjoying all that it has to offer! Personally, our favorite part is the new Princess NPC along with those sweet Vanity Contest sets.

The team is currently hard at work on the second wave of hotfixes for Terraria 1.4.1 - we are feeling confident that this may be the one that covers off all of the remaining issues. We will have an update on timing and content of that (1.4.1.2) just as soon as we can.

PlayStation 4, XBOX ONE, Nintendo Switch - DR STUDIOS


XBOX & PLAYSTATION

Last time we were here, we gave you all a little teaser video of Journey's End running on Xbox One. It was so awesome to see how everyone reacted to the idea that 1.4 was already running on consoles. Since that time, we have also wrapped up Journey's End for mobile as well as what we hope will be the needed hotfixes to get that version at a great place, allowing our team to turn its full focus over to bringing that Journey's End goodness to our eager Console fans. We do not yet have a precise timeline to give you, but the team has been doing some scoping and planning work so that we know all of the areas we need to touch in order to get from where we are today to where we need to be in order to get a worthy version of 1.4 out to you.

Part of that will be working out things like what legacy systems to pull over, making sure saves cross over properly, etc. on top of the usual implementation on various consoles. It is not as exciting perhaps as the new content itself, but taking the time needed to do these things right will pay off in the best console Terraria experience that we can deliver. :)

Hopefully, if all goes to plan, we will have more to share next time by way of visuals, etc. - either way, we will look forward to giving you a progress report from our first console-focused time period. Stay tuned!




NINTENDO SWITCH


We didn't want to go an entire month without showing something on the Console side of the house... and that got us to thinking that the Nintendo Switch Terrarians didn't get to join in on last month's "it's alive!" teaser video. Well, let's do something about that, shall we?

Terraria: Journey's End - Alive and Running on a Nintendo Switch!
As we were saying to our XB/PS friends above, we do not have an exact timeframe to give you just yet. Odds are that the Switch version will take a bit longer than the other two just because of the extra features and nuances that the Switch provides (Touch Controls, Docked vs Undocked, hardware differences, etc) - but the team will be doing everything in our power to lessen that time gap.

We hope you really enjoy seeing Journey's End running on Switch as much as we do - these are exciting times indeed!

MOBILE - DR STUDIOS

Happy Halloween!

We admittedly do not have much in the way of huge development news or spoilers to share with you this month. We tried to figure out what happened and why... but then we remembered that the epic Journey's End update (plus all of 1.3.1 - 1.3.5) just landed in your hands a mere week ago! ;) Making this leap a reality for all of our Mobile Terrarians was hard work indeed, but we are so glad to see it here and to read about how everyone is really feeling like this is the best Mobile Terraria experience ever!

That said, we have also been diligently documenting your bugs and feedback for some hotfixes and perhaps future development down the road. To that end, we have a hotfix in process that we expect to be able to push out to everyone sometime early next week. This will cover an array of issues raised either internally or by the community coming out of the Journey's End launch. We won't list all of that out now - but we do think we have covered off most of the major bits.



Zenith Stick Range.png

You want one example? Ok fine... we fixed the range of Zenith when using the virtual sticks or a gamepad to now reach the entire screen, just like touch!


We will save the rest for the hotfix post next week - so make sure that you tune in for that information. We hope that it makes your Terraria journey even more polished... so much that you will never want it to end! If you have any new bugs/issues to report, please do so via the link below:


Beyond the hotfix wave - and once we feel like we have Terraria 1.4 where we want it to be, we will be turning the majority of our focus towards bringing our Console Terrarians into the Journey's End era. We will get back around to our plans for Terraria 1.4.1 and a few other potential ideas, etc. that we have at a later time once we have that wrapped up and out. :cool:


For now, we sincerely hope that everyone is enjoying Terraria: Journey's End for Mobile. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to bring it to you and we cannot wait to keep up this momentum moving ahead!

Greetings Terrarians!

TERRARIA PARKOUR CHALLENGE
With the release of the 1.4.1 update we feel it is time to kick off a series of awesome annual community features and events. We are planning everything from PvP tournaments to art contests and we will be revealing them all in the months leading up to the festivities taking place on the Terraria 10 Year anniversary. Today we are announcing our plan to host the Terraria Ultimate Parkour Challenge which will be taking place this year from December 18 until December 31.

Our goal is to create an incredible parkour course for the Terraria community each year and release the map this year on December 18. Members of the Terraria community will have around 2 weeks to complete the course as fast as possible. All rules related to playing the course will be revealed in the November State of the Game announcement. This will be a PC event to start, but eventually this will be a global event available on all Terraria platforms.

We can reveal that the goal of the parkour event will be to try to complete the course in the fastest possible time and sharing a recording of your run for verification. The top ten fastest times will then qualify to compete in an epic live event to determine who is the parkour champion for this year. We are also planning on giving away some awesome prizes for this event.

If all of this sounds interesting to you then you have an opportunity to take your involvement in the Terraria Ultimate Parkour Challenge to the next level. We are looking for passionate members of the community who are interested in helping to design the parkour challenge each year. If thing sounds like something you want to be a part of then join the Terraria Community Team Discord server and apply to join the TCT. If you are accepted as a member then request to join the Ultimate Parkour Challenge team.

1.4.1 was amazing! 1.4.1.2 gonna fix EVERY bug in-game? Then I have a suggestion:

Make 1.4.1.2 fix all bugs AND exploits too?

One more thing: WHY DOES FREAKING MOBILE AND SWITCH GET IT BUT NOT CONSOLE?! I have Desktop and Console, but no love for Console today.

Any chance for the volume 4 of the soundtrack on Bandcamp? Would be nice to have a lossless version.
Working on a lossless on Steam as well... but the entire Depot of the full ST is now bigger than their "standard ST uploader" can handle - lol.

I'll sort it out, but its gonna take longer than usual.

Because DR was already WELL deep into Mobile 1.4 before the switch to them for console was made... and now they can turn those same efforts over to Console.

Looking pretty good, even if the news isn't as exciting as last time minus the console and tMod news, gimme that Xbox 1.4.
Still great to see though!
