Terraria has reached the Journey’s End now

All things go, all things go.

Farewell, Terraria, your journey is over. Although to some extent, the journey never changed. The game’s final major update launched on Saturday, but Journey’s End might seem an odd name when the game’s nine-year history has always been one of crafting your own journey… yet it makes sense when you realize that the game’s last update adds Journey Mode, wildly altering the gameplay in a way that ultimately allows players to research everything, duplicate blocks, and even alter the weather itself.

This would be big enough if it were the only addition, but it’s not. Players can also try out the difficult Master Mode or the simple joys of the Golf mode. There’s the new Block Swap option to easily move from one set of placed blocks to another in one movement. Player emotes! New mini-biomes! New interactions with the world! New interfaces for making characters! And it also launches official support for the popular fan-made modding tool tModLoader as part of the core game! It’s a whole lot of changes to make the game even more capable of adapting in the future; now that it’s finally here, the major updates are over, but the journey keeps going onward.

Game’s been addicting as ever for me, and it’s fun seeing all the changes since the last time I really played it (which was probably like Patch 1.2 or so). Not really a fan of how they trivialized some things early on (i.e. mana is super easy to build up to the 200 cap now) but I’m glad they’ve added more methods to actually get certain items that in the past would require you to just generate up another world and hope you get lucky (now if only they’d do that for the Pyramid items…), mainly via fishing crates and doing things like allowing you to make literal gem trees to grow diamonds/rubies/etc.

Master Mode from what I understand is largely just a harder Expert Mode and doesn’t actually award you any new equipment or such, just pets and trophies for showing off along with a 7th accessory slot that can only be used in that mode. On one hand that’s kind of disappointing, but on the other hand it means that Master Mode is more meant for the actual challenge than actually going after new accessories and weapons like Expert.

Best implementation of creative mode in any game I’ve ever played. Really have been enjoying collecting items for duplication, and gives way more freedom on the building side of things. Not to mention a ton of QoL updates.
