Back in November 2013 Terraria on PS3 got a patch that gave us a glimpse of the additional updated content that PC players were enjoying with promises that the full 1.2 patch would be coming in early 2014. While 505 games have yet to announce a concrete date the official Terraria Facebook page provided an update on what has already been completed for the patch and what they are currently working on:

– all new wall types (80) are added
– all new tile sets (106) are added
– mini map has been adjusted to display colors for new bricks, ores and walls
– new clouds are added
– Rain event is added
– About 50% of new recipes are added
— new subcategories for recipes are added
– Torches and switches can now be placed on walls
– new moon variations have been added (and randomized)
– new hammer and pickaxe behaviors have been added (except half-tiles)
– Armor dye system has been implemented (code only, still requires interface redesign)
– Tile painting system has been implemented (still requires some work on paint tools mechanics)
– New sound effects are implemented
– Sun Eclipse Event has been added partially (about 80% complete)
– Dungeon redesign has been implemented
– Jungle Temple has been implemented
– Variations for doors, pots and chests have been implemented
– Lastly, about 400 new items were added including all banners, furniture that uses wood variations and vanity sets

We are currently working on the Pyramids, Crimson Biome, Pirate Invasion and Actuator mechanics and in between all of that we are also fixing bugs that are reported. We also rewrote the entire lighting routines on PS3 to prevent performance drops in split screen.

The update will be coming to both the PS3 and Vita versions of the game and is looking like it will include almost everything that was part of the 1.2 patch on PC, that is besides the 10 additional inventory slots.  Are you still enjoying Terraria on PS3 or recently picked it up on Vita? Let us know in the comments what you are looking forward to most from the update.
