Terraria is one of my most played PC games I currently have on Steam – I’ve logged in about 212 hours, according to my Steam Library. Admittedly, I experienced it just as it was getting popular and I continued to play it up to and past the anticipated-at-the-time 1.1 patch update. However, as college work and life continued to drop anvils on me, I couldn’t play Terraria as much I would’ve wanted as time went on.
Now I hear that there will be another big patch update, which just blew my mind because I was under the assumption that updates for the PC version of Terraria had stopped. Apparently I was utterly wrong!
In the middle of last week, Andrew Spinks (aka “Redigit”, the developer of Terraria) tweeted a none-to-subtle hint that the long-awaited (allegedly PC-only) update will be coming to Terraria on October 1.
The news you have all been waiting for… The update will be out on October 1st!

The 1.2 update was teased in a preview video, as it turns out, back in May of this year. The full gameplay 1.2 gameplay trailer, however, was just released the other day. The trailer itself, I must say, really shows off Terraria’s lighting and particle engine with bright, vibrant colours and particle effects flying everywhere!
I don’t know just how much will be added to Terraria with its 1.2 update, but from what the trailer shows – aside from the great music – there will be a heck-of-a-lot more weapons, items, enemies, bosses, giant bees, bigger killer plants, and diagonal blocks! Yes, the inclusion of diagonal blocks is a big deal – at least to me. Apparently, according to a trusted source, the content count is to be around 700 new items.
700 items?! Assuming it’s true, then fug me that’s a lot! I am thoroughly looking forward to playing Terraria again in preparation for the 1.2 update. We here at Leviathyn will be running a staff-server, and I hope plenty of shenanigans will come from it!
Terraria’s update will be free, as per usual with its previous updates.
