Terraria is coming to consoles in February along with new content; PC update confirmed by Redigit
After much speculation, the indie PC hit Terraria (which, for those who don’t know of it, is basically a 2D version of Minecraft, but with more weapons) is set to arrive on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network next month, and it will be bringing new content with it.
As the trailer below shows, the console version of the game will sport several new features, including new controls, a world map, a new tutorial and all sorts of new armor, ultimate weapons, enemies, pets, etc. There’s even a new final boss awaiting players. Terraria for consoles will also come with multiple ways to play with others. The game will include a local, split-screen mode for up to four players to enjoy, while those looking for a bigger party can join in on online multiplayer with up to seven other people.
In addition to the Terraria for consoles news, creator Andrew "Redigit" Spinks confirmed that a PC update is on the horizon. The developer has even hired a new sprite artist after losing Tiy to Starbound/Chucklefish.
Since its original release in May 2011, Terraria has been sold roughly 1.6 million times (I’m among the 1.6 million who has a copy on their computer). And now, with its console release imminent, we can expect even more copies to be dug up by intrigued gamers.
