Over the weekend Terraria play spiked to the top of the Steam charts, despite being nine years old. It has now been declared complete by developer Re-Logic.
In a massive forum post, Re-Logic has detailed the massive final update to the sandbox title. Called Journey’s End, this update retools, upgrades, refines, adds to and expands what you can do in Terraria. It is full of changes, like the Journey mode, which gives players control of various options mid-game, like increasing the difficulty or changing spawn rates of enemies to your liking.
New biomes, smarter bosses, better weapon effects, NPC moods and improved health bars all make for a better, more immersive experience. Oh you can sit in your masterpiece build now, instead of just standing looking at it all.
One of the best changes is the block swap, which lets you upgrade your building to new materials without having to rip it all down first. Never again have those terrible dirt-walled sections of house because you were too lazy to tear them down before replacing them with solid gold blocks.
There is even an overflow for your inventory called the Void Vault, which should help those of us who pick up everything and can’t decide what to leave back at base (yes, I feel called out).
You can see everything about Journey’s End here. I have a feeling a fresh game is in order now.
