Terraria heading to next gen systems

Terraria heading to next gen systems

Terraria first launched in 2011 and has seen content updates extending through to 2013.

Indie 2D building and exploring sandbox Terraria is heading to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

A post on the 505 Games forum confirms the upcoming next-gen editions of the title and slates them for a late 2014 release. These versions will include everything from the game’s 1.2 content patch as well as some as yet undisclosed new features.

The Playstation 4 version of Terraria will be demonstrated at E3, showing off cross-play and cross-save functionality between the Playstation 4 and PS Vita.

Terraria first launched on the PC in 2011 and was met by a positive critical reception. In 2013, Terraria made its way to the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PS Vita. Mobile and tablet versions were also developed for iOS and Android systems. The PC version alone has sold more than 2 million copies.

The game was developed by two-man development outfit Re-Logic, comprised of Andrew Spinks and Finn Brice. Updates beyond bug-fixes were initially halted in early February 2012, but further development kicked off again in 2013 resulting in a significant content update with version 1.2.

Last year, Spinks confirmed that there is currently further work taking place on more endgame content for Terraria and that he is planning a sequel to the title.

I loved Terraria put a few hundred hours into it with friends on a server I hosted. I'm not sure how much life it had left in it, I suppose it would be ok if it attracted new players. I do t think I'd bother replaying it.
