Terraria on PS3 and Xbox 360

Terraria, the game of Re-Logic, slightly inspired by Minecraft, will arrive in its turn on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2013. 505 Games publishes the game for download platforms. Watch the video to understand the concept.


Indie blockbuster Terraria coming to consoles
Milton Keynes, UK — International publisher of video games, 505 Games, has today announced 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 on 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. It has received universal acclaim from media and fans alike — 1.6 million “Terrarians” have struck out on their own adventures since release.

With a vast array of materials and items to collect, Terraria is far more than a mere block building game, gamers experience is limited only by their own imaginations; the world really is yours 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 an already 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”.

Andrew Spinks, creator of Terraria added "I can’t say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3! To see it come so far is a complete shock, especially after such humble beginnings. 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."

Developed by Engine Software, Terraria will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade and Playstation Network early 2013. Follow us on facebook.com/terrariaofficial and twitter.com/terraria_logic or log on to www.terraria.org

I've already sunk hundreds of hours into Terraria and I've purchased about 10 copies for other people. I too am greatly looking forward to Starbound.

Console gamers are big suckers for games like this. Minecraft is second most played game on XBLA after MW3 for months.

I wouldn't say that console gamers are suckers for games like this, so much as Minecraft and Terraria are just really successful indie games. Terraria kicked all sorts of ass on Steam and Minecraft made Notch rich before he sold out ;D

Any way you look at it though, it's a damn good thing.

I got burnt out on Terraria before I burned through all of the content from the final update. Not so much an excuse, just sayin.
