We are excited to announce - as some of you may have noticed prior to this announcement - that the "Hardmode" update is now live for iOS! As noted earlier this week, the update will be coming to Andoid devices very soon - after some last minute bug squashing.
This update adds a ton of new content, effectively bringing everything into the Mobile versions that was initially in the console version at launch....plus existing and new mobile exclusives.
As a reminder, here is a list of what's in store for Mobile Terrarians:
Defeat the Wall of Flesh to transform your world!
20+ new enemies
100+ new items
Use the Pwnhammer to destroy Demon Altars and create new ores
Also new: combat targeting!
Touch an enemy to target it and you will aim toward it by default
Very helpful for ranged weapons!
Finally: we've added Everyplay support!
Record and share your gameplay via the Pause Menu
Watch other players' adventures via the Videos button in the Main Menu
Due to the performance requirements for HardMode this update will require iOS 6.1 or higher and is optimized for iPod touch 5th gen, iPhone 4, or iPad 2 or better
We apologize for the delay last week, but we are pleased to finally bring this substantial update to our Mobile Terrarians!
As always, report any bugs to us via 505's bug report form, and any feedback via our official feedback threads (see below):
A lot of you have been asking for spoilers lately for the new update. Rather than show you a new boss or some of the cool new content I thought I would show you some of the little things we have made changes to thus far.
Below you will see some of the changes made to the dye system as well as some new dyes Skiphs created while making these changes.
"The new dye changes are designed to help add a bit more color to their armor. This occurs in two ways. The first way is that I've allowed for some of the dye color to seep through on areas that were previously considered too light or dark. The second is an overall increase to saturation. As a whole, the changes are minor, and should only be noticeable in cases where the dye would feel very underwhelming before." -Skiphs
Another new feature that we have added is an event/invasion progress bar. This will allow the player to know how long an event should last. This new feature will have an interface option to disable it if the player does not wish to use it.
I will leave you with one final gif of the new Laser Ruler accessory!
*At this point in time it is still too early to begin speculating any type of release date for this update. I do not not want to rush the team or establish an imaginary release date for us to stress over. *
