Good day Terrarians!
In late 2014, we saw a number of updates for Terraria on Console and Mobile – including Mobile 1.2 and the addition of the expanded Holiday/Xmas content to our console versions. At the time, we also made the commitment to everyone that we would be looking to provide more frequent updates heading into 2015 – including one that we had planned to have live in “Early 2015”.

Well, we are quite pleased to announce to everyone that we intend to stick to that commitment, and that starts now: The Frost Moon is coming to Console Terraria (all platforms) over the next 2-3 weeks!

For those of you familiar with the PC version of Terraria, the Frost Moon is the second of the two “Moon Invasion” events in the game (and demonstrably harder than the Pumpkin Moon which we added to Console last year). This event will test the mettle and ingenuity of even the most hardy Terrarian warriors as they make their best attempts to hold off a terrifying horde of frozen monstrosities in search of challenge and loot.

New/changed mechanics/bugfixes:
- Any sand block can be used to create glass
- Changed any wood recipe tooltip ('Any wood' instead of enumerating all wood types)
- Fixed allow obtaining the disco ball from merchant and jungle wall from Dryad
- NPCs will now seek shelter during Solar Eclipse events
- Between 15 and 31 dec, xmas themed zombies, slimes and bunnies will spawn
- +1 Music track for the Frost Moon Event
- Items which regenerate health per hit now have a cap of 2 hearts per second.
- Properly convert mannequins with console exclusive armor and vanity items in games from pre-christmas saves
- Recover Dragon Mask, George’s tuxedo shirt and Fabulous slippers on mannequins in christmas saves
- Added new trophy decarations
- Added Frost moon event

New items:

- Christmas Tree Sword [weapon]
- Festive Wings [accessory]
- Razorpine [weapon]
- Christmas Hook [item]
- Chain Gun [weapon]
- Baby Grinch’s Mischief Wistle [summon item/pet]
- Everscream Trophy [furniture]
- Ice Queen Trophy [furniture]
- Santa-NK1 Trophy [furniture]
- Elf Hat [vanity]
- Elf Shirt [vanity]
- Elf Pants [vanity]
- Naughty Present [Frost Moon event summon item]
- Elf Melter [weapon]
- Blizzard Staff [weapon]
- North Pole [weapon]
- Snowman Cannon [weapon]
- Giant Bow [vanity]

New enemies:

- Present Mimic
- Gingerbread
- Zombie Elf
- Nutcracker
- Yeti
- Everscream
- Krampus
- Flocko
- Elf Copter
- Ice Queen
- Santa-NK1

This is great! I can't wai for this to finally come out, there will be all kinds of things I want to try out, like riding mounts, or seeing what the Travelling Merchant will give me b/c I've never had a PC to play Terraria on, so thanks for updating the console version of Terraria;)
