Terraria Stadia Release Finally Arrives

The Terraria Stadia release has finally arrived following some unfortunate issues with the developer's Google account that almost saw the port of this popular Metroidvania entirely canceled.

Terraria is a 2D Metroidvania with survival crafting elements (and a dash of bullet hell through in, to boot). The game features challenging bosses, biomes, and bad guys in a pretty big 2D world that can be played by yourself or with friends. It's been launched on quite a few platforms to date, but its Stadia release almost didn't make it; now, those problems have been resolved and the game has finally arrived on Google Stadia.

Terraria Stadia Version Launch Troubles Resolved

The Terraria Stadia release is certainly welcome news for people on that platform looking for a new game to play, but this is one game launch that almost didn't happen.

 
 

A few weeks ago, the game's developer announced that it was canceling Terraria for Google Stadia following immense frustration on part of the developer. The "Demilogic" YouTube and Google account had been locked out for weeks with no response from Google or YouTube, ultimately resulting in the team canceling the game.

However, that was not to be the end — either Google finally realized what happened or the massive amount of fans tweeting about the game got the attention of Google and got the account issues sorted out. That put the game back on track, and now it's finally arrived on Google Stadia.

"Terraria is now available on @GoogleStadia! " read a simple announcement tweet on the game's official account.

Terraria has not yet appeared on the list of Stadia games, but you should be able to get it on that platform now. The Stadia version of the game is based on the DR Studios 1.4.0.5 version of the game, ensuring that you have a good chunk of content to play for some time. You can play the Terraria Stadia version by signing up for Google Stadia right now.
