Terraria Receives a Massive Content Update

505 Games today announced that Terraria will receive a massive content update, which will be made available for free on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and PlayStation Vita platforms.

“We believe this massive content update opens up a new world of possibilities for Terrarians and we are delighted to be bringing this content to passionate Terraria fans who are experiencing the universe on consoles and handheld devices,” said Richard Gittins, Senior Brand Manager at 505 Games.

“The passion expressed by Terraria‘s community has fueled our ambitions to do justice for the original PC content, and with the delivery of this update, there really has never been a better time to get into Terraria and discover its delights. We look forward to bringing additional content to existing Terrarians as well as broadening out to new audiences throughout 2014 and beyond.”

Terraria is an action-packed sandbox adventure that enables players to dig, fight, explore and build in a world they craft themselves. The original PC game, published by Re-Logic, has become an indie phenomenon since launching May 2011, achieving huge sales successes and garnering multiple award wins. 505 Games have since brought Terraria to a wider audience across console platforms as well as iOS and Android devices to high acclaim.

The free title update includes (but is in no way limited to!) the following:

  • Rain, blizzards, and a new snow biome with unique treasures and items for normal and hardmode versions
  • The sun is brighter and midnight is darker, along with several other graphical upgrades
  • Stalagmites, icicles, moss, plants, rocks and other “piles” added
  • New mini caves with unique backgrounds, and chests and pots with distinct graphics to each biome
  • The hammer is now used for creating slopes, halftiles and breaking walls only, whilst the axe is now only used for chopping down trees and giant mushrooms
  • Pickaxes will now remove blocks, placeable objects and items such as Life Crystals and chests
  • Players can now craft early-game magic robes and staves, whilst bricks, wood, stone and glass all now blend together
  • New hardmode jungle temple with beehives

Water will now change color based on the biome and depth that you are in, and there are several new fountains that will change the color of water when they are placed nearby

In addition, there are over 1,000 new items, including:

  • 10 new ores
  • 4 new wood types
  • 31 new brick types
  • 12 new wing types
  • 29 new tinker combinations
  • Over 50 paintings that can be collected randomly throughout the world
  • 8 new friendly NPCs
  • 4 new bosses
  • Over 100 new enemies
  • Over 15 new pets that can be found in chests and dropped rarely off enemies

Terraria is available for console on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and PlayStation Vita, and was recently released in stores across Europe as part of the Xbox Classic Hits range for Xbox 360.
