The Frost Moon Rises in Terraria

By Ashley Woodcock, 4 years ago
An update was released recently for the console variants of the Engine Software developed Terraria. Included in the update was the release of the Frost Moon, "the second of the two 'Moon Invasion' events in the game". This event sees players putting their Terrarian built skills to test as they square off against hordes of ice-cold and frozen monstrosities in their search for challenge and loot.
