Happy Terraria 1.3 Launch Eve Terrarians!

In order to help you survive the last few hours until you have your hands on this amazing update, we have partnered with a whole host of Live Streaming individuals and groups - each of which will be playing various aspects of Terraria 1.3 for your advance viewing pleasure. This will all take place tomorrow - June 29th, 2015. Of course, if you would rather be surprised - well, then you may want to isolate yourself in a quiet place...maybe with a nice book...for the next 24-48 hours or so.


There will be LIVESTREAM EVENTS hosted by PC Gamer, Pedguin, 0x33, and HERO!

There will be PREVIEW VIDEOS presented by ChippyGaming and Yrimir!

[Because the original post on TCF contains table formatting that is not supported here, I'm simply going to link the post containing the schedules and links. You do not need a TCF account to view this. All times are subject to change (another reason not to just copy/paste the info!)]

From 505 Games:

Hello Terrarians!

By now, some of you will have picked up on the news release we gave out at E3 around Mobile Terraria adding 1.2.3 & 1.2.4 content in the coming months. We are here today to confirm that this is absolutely the plan - and we hope to have it in your hands during Q3 2015!

This will include Minecarts, Fishing, and everything else that will get Mobile Terraria up to date - well, until 1.3 launches at least...but that's a different story.

To help get you ready for this huge release, we have a little video to share with you! Please note that all of this is still VERY MUCH under development and testing - so pardon any rough edges. These are all things that we are still working towards - but we did not want you guys to have to wait any longer to have a glimpse.

Nice little Image too from Twitter :)

Bug thanks to @Yrimir for apparently helping out make the 1.3 Trailer.

More from information:
In an age of Darkness & a time of Evil...when the world needed a Hero...they got - you. With an array of new weapons, functionality, facelifts, and features at your disposal - will you be up to the challenges posed by the new foes in your path...as well as some old enemies that have learned some new tricks? In a week's time, all shall be made clear!

We are roughly a week away from an update that the entire team has worked on tirelessly for months - and is now immensely proud to bring to our fans. We hope you have as much fun exploring all that 1.3 has to offer as we did in making it.

We do want to give our Mac and Linux Terrarians a quick update as well. Based upon current status and planning, the plan is that Mac/Linux will launch shortly after 1.3 - aiming for a launch within the month of July. This is being done to ensure the most stable Mac/Linux builds possible so that everyone has the best experience that we can provide.

Of course, we will do everything possible to make this time window as small as we can. We absolutely want the Terraria 1.3 goodness in the hands of our Mac and Linux folks ASAP! Stay tuned

See you next week!
