Hot on the heels of the news that Terraria has achieved an incredible 3 million PC sales, 505 Games and Re-Logic have announced 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 PlayStation3 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.
Terraria players 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 new demon eye variants.
The title update also addresses performance improvements from the original console release.
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.
With over 30 hours put into this game I’d say run as fast as you can to where ever you want it and buy it. It’s totally worth it and you’ll have tons of fun to go with it.
