Console Versions of Terraria Finally Get the Big 1.2 Update

Meanwhile, PC users are all like "that's SO last fall".

Terraria hasn't had a difficult time spreading from PC to Xbox, PS Vita, PlayStation 3 or even mobile devices. The game's latest impressive update, on the other hand, has. Released for PC back in October, Terraria's 1.2 patch has finally wormed its way to consoles and Vita. Time to start playing again!

Terraria 1.2 adds a massive amount of content, bug fixes and tweaks to the sidescrolling sandbox game. There are new items, new bosses, new biomes, new events, new materials, new crafting recipes, and, well, a lot more. The full list of changes is quite a read. Here are a few of our favorite things:

  • Over 1,000 new items
  • Some items now stack to 999 or to 99, including ores and buckets
  • Chest sizes have been doubled
  • You no longer need to jump to ascend single blocks
  • If water touches a half-tile it will create a waterfall
  • 10 new ores
  • 31 new brick types
  • 8 new friendly NPCs
  • 4 new bosses
  • Over 100 new enemies

But wait! It's not all copy/paste from PC to console! There are still a few minor differences between the games, even with the version number catch-up:

  • Console versions do not have 10 additional inventory slots.
  • The Coin Gun is not (yet) implemented.
  • Some of the console exclusive music has stayed the same.

Yeah, ok, not that big of a deal. But still, the more you know, yeah? Terraria 1.2 is currently available to download via Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. Get it, get your friends, get to digging.
