Hello Terrarians,

We apologize for any issues that may have arisen from this weeks console update. Rest assured, it is an absolute priority for both Engine and 505 Games to push out a new patch to correct this as soon as we possibly can.

The patch for these issues is in the works and we hope to have a release date ASAP. However, we are doing our best to not rush it out in an effort to give us an opportunity to address as many issues as possible without causing further issues.

If you experience any bugs, glitches, or issues with Terraria for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or the PlayStation Vita, it is extremely important that you report issues directly to us via our support team: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Terraria

Posting bugs and issues in the forums or on social media may get lost in the massive amount of messages we receive each day, and we want to make sure we get all the necessary information to improve your experience.

Thank you all for your patience as we work hard to address these issues.

- 505 Games

So, after months of anxious waiting, our console Terrarians are finally enjoying the spoils of Terraria 1.2 (plus a few extra goodies)!

As we have with the PC updates, we are setting up a feedback thread...and this is it.

Please utilize this thread to provide feedback on the update - tweaks, ideas for the guide, love for the devs, etc.

As with all feedback threads (and threads in general), please be respectful of the fellow posters and constructive in the feedback. Personal attacks and overt rudeness will not be tolerated. This is just a pre-emptive warning on that front.

If you are experiencing bugs, please note that there is a section for Bug Reports which would be the best place to report them (be sure to prefix your report with which console you are on).

505 has also provided this for Bug Reports:

In sure some bug reports will occur here...but just note the above guidance to improve your chances of resolution.


Just a recommendation: if your world does not load or loads wrong...dont delete, dont save, leave it till the fix is out, that might save it


That's it - fire away! :)
