Terraria March Update - State of the Game

Terraria

Greetings Terrarians! Welcome to the the latest Terraria community update on development progress across all active platforms!

A ton of progress is being made, and things are really starting to come together – we are hopeful that we will be able to have some of this in your hands soon. That said, on with the latest news….

Xbox One & PlayStation 4

We are getting ever-closer to have Terraria 1.3.1 in the hands of our XB1 and PS4 Terrarians! We are currently working through some bugs that emerged during final testing of the update.

Once we have those taken care of and can give everything another close look-over, we should be good to push this out to everyone!

While not an exhaustive changelog, we thought it might be a good time to remind everyone about some of the cool stuff that is coming your way when this drops:

NEW FEATURES

  • Dart Traps & all Temple Traps can now be hammered to rotate 90 degrees at a time, revolutionizing arena building
  • Cannons (normal, bunny, confetti, Snowball Launcher) can now be controlled by wire and shoot fake projectiles!

NEW ITEMS

  • Tons of new Wiring/Mechanical items – from Logic Gates to Logic Sensors to Junction Boxes, Conveyor Belts, and more!
  • Yellow Wrench adds a fourth wire color
  • The Grand Design, once crafted, will place all of your cool wiring tools in one place for easy use
  • Team Blocks and Platforms make for cool new aspects to your PVP games
  • Static Hook will allow you full control over your grappling
  • New Pressure Plates, including the Teal Pressure Plate (which can be triggered by pets and projectiles)
  • Trapped Chests can now be crafted to keep others from poking around in your stuff
  • Angler Tackle Bag will make fishing more efficient than ever!
  • Brand new Critter & Monster Statues
  • And of course, who could forget that you will now be able to pick up your very own Companion Cube from the Traveling Merchant!

QUALITY OF LIFE TWEAKS

  • Improved Wire drawing to look less fuzzy with multiple colors on the same tile.
  • New large gem over-head display
  • You can now use situational building accessories from your inventory and toggle their effects like info accessories
  • Decompressed sprite graphics for improved fidelity

MISCELLANEOUS ADDITIONS

  • Duke Fishron’s will no longer run away so easily
  • You will find Beehives in the Jungle – Not the bees!
  • Torches can be put on actuated tiles

Nintendo Switch

Mobile

PC

Happy March Terrarians!

Spring is getting so close, we can hardly wait! Of course, now that its warmer outside, what better activity could there be than a spot of fishing… and nothing says fishing like a Blood Moon, right?

If that sounds dangerous to you, we assure you that it totally is. However, for those brave enough to cast their lines in the face of danger, unique rewards await – like our new friend the Vampire Frog here!

This pre-hard mode summon will hop and tongue-lash your enemies with reckless abandon should you be fortunate enough to pull its summoning item from the watery depths.

The team remains very hard at work with all that is going into this amazing update, and we are more confident than ever that you will find this to be well worth the wait.

We will have a lot more to share in the weeks ahead – stay tuned everyone!
