Terraria September Update 2019 - State of the Game

Terraria

Greetings Terrarians! Welcome to the the latest Terraria community update on development progress across all active platforms! School is back in session, but that has not slowed down the pace of progress across the board for Terraria.

Things are really starting to come together and pick up momentum – so hang on, enjoy the ride, and read on for all of the latest Terraria news!

Xbox One & PlayStation 4

Hey Terraria fans on the PS4/X1!

We’re just finishing up on porting 1.3.4 to Playstation 4 and Xbox One, and Re-Logic has started their review pass for quality. That means that we may have some additional bugs to address, but the 1.3.4 content is in the game and ready for testing, so we’re on the home stretch!

As soon as we have a chance to finish a quality assessment and bug fix with Re-Logic, we’ll look to get this submitted and downloaded on your consoles. No promises on date and time, but we’ll let you know when it’s ready to go.

Mobile

Let’s see, what happened in the world of Mobile Terraria since the last State of the Game… oh that’s right, we launched Terraria 1.3 for Android and iOS!

In case you missed that for some crazy reason, check out our launch thread here > Mobile Terrarians Assemble! Mobile 1.3 Launches Today!

Since launch, we have been hard at work on post-launch fixes and responding to player feedback (including the return of optional Legacy Jump controls and Autoswing).

If you want to see what all has been addressed since launch, keep a close eye on the Fixes Changelog Thread linked below!

We should have at least one more fix round coming your way in the next week or two. This one is primarily targeted towards issues that players on very low-spec devices may be having in regards to crashing and the like.

Of course, it will have the usual suite of other fixes, but we wanted to let those low-end players know that some relief may be on the way soon.

All of this is in the testing/review process internally at the moment – so we do not have an exact timing to give you nor the extent of things it will cover just yet.

As it is our hope that this fix wave (1.3.0.7.5) will be the final one for launch before we move on to the often-mentioned “Controller Support + Customizations” Feature Update, it is our current plan to submit this version of Terraria Mobile 1.3 to Amazon for approval.

This is subject to change should other critical issues arise, but this is certainly the plan!

To whet your appetite, we wanted to share some more Amazon info with you… and they say a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

Nintendo Switch

Good news, Switch fans: The 1.3.1.1 port is nearly complete!

Thanks to the work we already put in on PS4/X1 this did not take as long as we expected, and we’re pretty happy with the results. We’re still working at additional features like adding proper touch support for the Grand Design/Multicolor Wrench.

We also have a few bugs left to address, as well as a review pass by Re-Logic, then we’ll look to get this submitted to Nintendo and in your hands.

Thanks for your patience!

PC

The PC dev team is hard at work on a number of very cool and even more top secret things for the upcoming Journey’s End update. So no, we will not be speaking to any of that this month.

However, we are not empty-handed. We wanted to share a quick shot of a brand new dev armor set coming your way!

Whose dev armor could this be? Any guesses? :)

Oh, and it looks like a new furry friend has tagged along as well… how cute!

Until next month, Terrarians – keep watching and waiting for more news along the path to Journey’s End.

COMMUNITY

Greetings Terrarians! We are overjoyed to announce that the mobile update is almost upon us. The 1.3 mobile update will finally allow global online play for up to 8 players.

Starting August 27, we are going to begin announcing official community adventures that Terraria players will be able to complete for a chance to win prizes. We created an official adventure channel located at Join the Terraria Discord Server! where you will be able to partner up with other members of the Terraria community.

Make sure you stop by our Discord server, join the #activities-chat, and gather allies to help you on your conquest for fortune and glory.

Full details will be provided in the server so make sure you stop by and check out all of the action. We also have to take a moment to give a massive shout out to the Terraria Community Team and the overall community for helping us build one of the largest and most active gaming communities on Discord.

We are currently the 8th most active verified server on the platform and we are sure that we can one day grow to become the largest server to ever exist on the platform. Help us reach the #1 server spot on Discord and please spread the word to all Terrarians!

There have been some truly exciting community updates lately, especially on Xbox. Microsoft recently rolled out their new official Xbox community hubs, and – of course – Terraria’s community is packed with activity and millions of unique club visits monthly.

With all of the recent upgrades, we are eager to hear feedback from the Xbox community on how we can make our console communities even more fun.

If you have a suggestion or you would like help improve our community then please stop by our official hub and share your suggestions.

Since the launch of Terraria on Switch we have been hosting regular meet-up events to build epic creations and survive gruesome challenges.

If you are interested in joining in on the action then send a Switch friend request to: SW:1555-1182-7233 and join one our open worlds.

We also have a fairly large stockpile of epic endgame gear for those lacking firepower.
