It’s been a long trip for the 2-D multiplayer side-scrolling exploration title Terraria, and while we don’t cover this one particularly closely, the upcoming Journey’s End update due for the title is worth mentioning as it will be the final content patch before entering what sounds like a well-supported maintenance mode.
Journey’s End is promising a lot of updates to make old things feel new or make current things feel fleshed out. Among these updates are over 800 new items to find or craft, an improvement to the game’s world generation, an in-game bestiary, quality-of-life enhancements like Block Swapping and a Void Vault, the new Master Mode difficulty level, and — most important of all — the ability to play golf. The devs are also planning on having “a handful of other surprises and features” that will be shared over the coming months.
As for what happens after the Journey’s End?
“Terraria will remain the vibrant and amazing game that it always has been! There is plenty more coming down the road for Console/Switch/Mobile (including some things we have not revealed just yet), and with the available mods – plus any future mods – on top of what is a VERY robust core game, we are confident Terraria will be trucking along for many, many years to come. Of course, we will stay involved with all of you – you make this possible, and we always enjoy hanging out.”
The devs of Re-Logic are also teasing that work will begin on their second game, though it reads quite a bit like they aren’t entirely sure what type of game that will be, or even if it will be a Terraria-like title. Of course, those who are interested will want to keep their eyes open, just don’t expect any news for a while.
Journey’s End is eyeballing a launch for sometime at the end of this year, though that can shift if things aren’t ready. For now, there’s a trailer below to see what’s in the works.
