Since its release, Terraria has had some significant updates. Terraria 1.0 contained a lot of new content and really added to the games replayability. With the 1.1 patch, Terraria will be getting its largest update yet.
So far, the devs have mentioned that over 222 new items, 21 accessories, 39 monsters, new ores, armors, female characters, mechanisms, a new lighting system, and 4 new bosses will all be included.
This Terraria update will completely change the game for the better, and it comes out Dec. 1st! Below you can find the trailer for Terraria Patch 1.1 as well as some more teasers and screenshots.
Here are some more teasers for Terraria patch 1.1 straight from the devs of the game:
Starting hard mode is pretty straight forward. Go to hell, take revenge on the guide for all the times he let the slimes in your house, and destroy a giant creature made out of left over body parts that pukes up worms and shoot lasers out of it's eyes.
When that simple task is completed, your world will change. There will be new challenges and tougher enemies to face. You will probably die. A lot. And you will have a blast doing it.
Start a new world, or use my old one?
You will be fine either way. Obviously, if you want to get the full experience, you'll want to play a new world from scratch. We made a lot of improvements to world gen, and there are quite a few new surprised waiting to be found. Just make sure to watch your step when you go underground, as there is no telling what all those random pressure plates are connected to.
It took a bit longer than I had hoped, but this update will completely change the game. The new lighting system is a lot easier on the eyes, and it adds a lot of atmosphere to the various biomes in the world. Being able to place items straight out of your inventory makes building so much easier. The new mechanic system allows you to create some interesting devices and traps. We are all very exicted about 1.1, there is something for everyone!
This will probably be it for teasers until we release the 1.1 trailer, and I think we've saved the best for last.
|Unreal Megashark. 'Nuff said.|
|This can work both ways, however. Don't worry too much, as one of the new NPCs will allow you to reforge an item to change it's condition. (for a price)|
|Weapons and accessories now have random conditions that improve their attributes.|
|One of the most requested features has found it's way into the game: Pumps!|
After we put this in, the first thing we did on the beta server was pump lava from hell into the overworld. Good times! (Those archers in the screenshot are jerks..)
|There is now a NPC housing interface. It's pretty simple, but allows full control over where your NPCs live, and it will even tell you if their living area is missing some of the requirements.|
