Terraria Coming to XBLA

Terraria Coming to XBLA

The retro-style revolution continues!

Written by Jonathan Barnes (osubluejacket) on 11 September 12 at 18:29

Originally released for PC in 2011, Terraria, Re-logic Studio's side-scrolling, action-adventure sandbox game, sold over 1.6 million copies and was so well-received that it created a demand for a wider console-based release. Today, Engine Software and 505 Games announced that they'd be bringing the hit to the Xbox LIVE Arcade.

Tim Woodley, Head of Global Brand for 505 Games is excited to bring Terraria to consoles with some new content:

The block-building genre has taken the world by storm and Terraria has garnered a massive following through its increased focus on adventure and discovery. We’re looking forward to bringing an already hugely successful experience to a brand new console audience and we can’t wait for the existing Terraria fan base to experience all-new content.Andrew Spinks, creator of Terraria added:

I can’t say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3! To see it come so far is a complete shock, especially after such humble beginnings. It’s always been my dream to have as many people as possible know and enjoy Terraria as much as I have, and this is another big step in that direction! It’s been awesome working with 505 Games, and I can’t wait for everyone to see the additional features that they’ve been able to bring to this new edition of the game.Screenshots have also emerged to give gamers a quick visual clue as to what Terraria entails.

Finally, as an added bonus to you, our awesome community, I dug up the official trailer for Terraria's PC release. Enjoy!



Terraria is set for a 2013 release. Pricing has not yet been announced, but the PC version currently costs $9.99 through Steam.

Thanks to all of the community members who suggested this news!

Am I old for remembering what 8-Bit looks like?

I'm so pumped, I hated playing this game with keyboard/mouse, and there was no proper controller support. This should be great!

Can't put my finger on it, but something puts me off about this after watching the trailer. Admittedly not a minecraft fan either though, if that even makes a diff..

The last Terraria update added so many amazing things to the game, but let's not forget bugs. After that update Re-Logic left and so all the bugs still remain. Hopefully these will be fixed for the 360 and PS3.

To anyone who hasn't played Terraria, it's fantastic. Not picking it up on xbox though, the controls won't translate well.
I'm just an ordinary teenage gamer, with an extraordinary lust for cheevos.
