Terraria Coming To PSN Courtesy Of 505 Games
Released on PC in 2011, Terraria was first mostly seen as an attempt to capitalise on the recent success of Minecraft, but since then it has evolved and gained its own community, one more suited to the game’s side scrolling exploration mechanics. Now, PSN players worldwide are going to be able to see what all the fuss is about with the game’s console release set for early 2013.

With a whole load of materials and items to be found in the game’s world, along with a vast and intricate crafting system, Terraria sounds like the perfect way to relax, kick back, and unwittingly lose about 4 hours in one go. The trailer for the PC version of the game is embedded above, but it definitely doesn’t mention the all new content PSN players will see when the game launches in 2013.
WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. – September 11, 2012 – 505 Games, a global publisher of video games, has announced today it will be bringing the independent block-building blockbuster Terraria to Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®Network.
Originally released in 2011 for the PC by creator/developer Andrew Spinks’ Re-logic studio, Terraria is a side-scrolling, action-adventure sandbox game with an emphasis on crafting and exploration set in vast and vibrant worlds. Terraria has received universal, critical acclaim and 1.6 million “Terrarians” have struck out on their own adventures since release.
With a vast array of materials and items to collect, Terror is far more than a mere block building game, players’ experience is limited only by their own imaginations, the world is theirs to shape and explore.
“The block-building genre has taken the world by storm and Terraria has garnered a massive following through its increased focus on adventure and discovery,” said Tim Woodley, head of Global Brand for 505 Games. “We’re looking forward to bringing a hugely successful experience to a brand new console audience and we can’t wait for the existing Terraria fan base to experience all-new content.”
“I can’t say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 system! To see it come so far is a complete shock, especially after such humble beginnings,” said Andrew Spinks, creator of Terraria. “It’s always been my dream to have as many people as possible know and enjoy Terraria as much as I have and this is another big step in that direction. It’s been awesome working with 505 Games and I can’t wait for everyone to see the additional features that they’ve been able to bring to this new edition of the game.”
