Terraria's Upcoming Patch Will Fix Severe Windows Phone Issue

By Ashley Woodcock, 6 months ago
The Windows Phone version of Terraria suffered a major blow after it was updated during 2015's holiday season. If you've had to sadly go without the title since then but have been patiently waiting to get into the adventure title again, then publisher 505 Games has some very good news in their latest patch; the universal crashing issue has finally been fixed!

However, there's a slight bit of bad news with the patch as it hasn't gone as perfectly as the team would have liked:

  • The Lumia 640 LTE still has a 100% crash bug that we have been trying to crack for literally months now, with no success. Until such point as that is resolved (if ever), we would advise anyone with a Lumia 640 LTE to not purchase the game.
  • The update is working well on devices that have at least 1GB of RAM. The team is working to lower that threshold to 512MB currently, but we are definitely seeing performance issues below 1GB, so we cannot guarantee as to whether or not this will be possible on every 512MB device. Rest assured that we will try our best here – but we did want to share that note of caution.
505 Games will be submitting the patch to Microsoft for approval next week. As soon as we have a date for the patch, we'll be sure to let you know.
