Papa’s got a brand new … Pickaxe? Hot on the heels of the news that Terraria has achieved an incredible 3 million PC sales, 505 Games and Re-Logic are excited to announce 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 PlayStation®3 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 – full details here: [http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/terraria-1-2-is-now-out.106803/]
Terrarians 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 fearsome new demon eye variants.
We hope you have had a spooktacular Halloween full of the very best treats…and a few tricks…and that you have been thoroughly enjoying the harrowing Terraria Halloween Update! I’m sure the Pumpking and his band of miscreants haven’t been TOO hard on you….
As you likely know, Redigit, Cenx, and the Relogic Team sponsored a Halloween Pumpkin and Costume Contest over the past few weeks in celebration of the season and the Halloween Update release. During that time, the amazing creative prowess of the Terrarian Community was on full display – I can honestly say that the entries showed great attention to detail, talent, and – most importantly - really captured the essence of Terraria!
Given the level of quality present, picking a set of winners was incredibly difficult – as you can well imagine! In the end, after many heated debates (and rounds of beverages), the team arrived at a set of finalists….and ultimately our winners.
We wanted to give a “tip of the hat” to the finalists as well, so they will be listed below the winners in this thread. In addition, Cenx will be setting up a Facebook photo album with all of the entries on the Official Terraria Facebook page! So, with that out of the way…and without further ado…we are proud to present the winners of the 2013 Terraria Halloween Contest!!!!
