Papa’s got a brand new … Pickaxe? Hot on the heels of the news that Terraria has achieved an incredible 3 million PC sales, 505 Games and Re-Logic are excited to announce that multiplayer has arrived for Terraria on mobile platforms, with a separate update set to thrill console players too.
For iOS and Android Terraria fans, you’ll now be able to play alongside – or against – other mobile players across the living room. Adventure together or duel each other in player-vs-player combat, with Wi-Fi multiplayer supporting up to four players. This update also includes various bug fixes along with the ability to directly drop items into the world from your inventory bar.
This week also sees the launch of a patch for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and a free title update for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft giving console gamers a glimpse of the exciting new content from Re-Logic’s full Terraria 1.2 update – full details here: [http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/terraria-1-2-is-now-out.106803/]
Terrarians on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 can now enjoy over a dozen new items and recipes – including two completely new armor sets, additional light sources and building blocks – plus more than twenty new monsters, including eight new zombie enemies and six fearsome new demon eye variants.
The title update also addresses performance improvements from the original console release – full list available here [ http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/xbox-360-and-ps3-update-available-november-5th.119726/]
Terraria will be coming to Windows Phone 8 soon, with the full 1.2 update arriving on consoles early next year.
Terraria is available at retail on XBLA, PSN, the Apple App Store, Android Marketplace, Amazon Appstore for Android, Steam and other PC digital distribution platforms and is due for release for Windows Phone in the coming weeks.
