Terraria may be over 4 years old, but that hasn’t stopped the developers, Re-Logic, from releasing constant, free gameplay updates – the latest of which has just been unleashed. Are you ready to experience Terraria 1.3? It brings a ton of new content to the 2D world!

Here’s the official trailer and a blurb from the update page (via Destructoid):

Terraria 1.3 touches on many aspects of the game – from re-imagined sprites and backgrounds to new features and – of course – the new content that you crave – that we truly feel it refreshes and revitalizes the entire Terraria experience.

The update should also do away with all the hoop jumping required to join a multiplayer game (a real pet peeve of mine):

Perhaps most exciting to the team are the ways in which Terraria 1.3 streamlines the multiplayer experience. Gone are the days of port-forwarding and endless IP sharing for anyone seeking to connect quickly with their friends for an ore-hunting session or to team of up that tough boss fight. We have always felt Terraria was best with a buddy (or ten) – so if you haven’t yet, now is an opportune time to try out multiplayer! (Do note that dedicated servers will still need to use the standalone server software, which you can download HERE).

If you’ve never played Terraria before, now might be the perfect time. As part of the 1.3 update, the game will be selling for a little cheaper than normal on Steam and GOG, for a measly $7.50. That really is a small fee to pay for something that will steal dozens, if not hundreds of hours of your time!

Still need more persuasion? Fine, here’s a trailer showing the new mine crafts carts that 1.3 brings:

If that doesn’t tickle your interest, then I don’t know what will! Mine carts are not the only new addition to Terraria. There really are far too many changes to detail in this article though (no really, there are a bunch of pages), so be sure to read all of them here.

If you kicked the addiction, I apologise most profusely. It looks like 1.3 will suck you, and many players back in for some more 2D exploring for a very long time!
