It’s really exciting to finally be bringing the world of Terraria to the PlayStation Vita today, 11th December, and to unleash the game on all those many fans that have been requesting us to do so.
There’s been no need to tinker with the awesome core gameplay, but PS Vita definitely allows us and Engine Software to embellish some of the cool things that we’d already put in place for the console version. It looks amazing on the Vita screen too!
We’ve redesigned the control especially for the handheld PS Vita, introducing touch support that allows for greater finesse in the crafting and item interface … The whole of Terraria really is one big canvas to play with, and we’re really happy how accessible the Vita version is, just like the console version before it.
You’ll also be able to enjoy online multiplayer, with up to eight players, though how you play is up to you; whether you join up to fight bosses together, build added-awesome castles, or duel each other in PvP combat!
Not only that but with PS Vita we’ve introduced Cross-Platform Play and Cross-Save to Terraria for the first time, allowing you to interact and game with PS3 players or save your game and pick it up again on your PS3. It’s the perfect game to play on the go and then return to the warmth of your home and pick up where you left… especially at this time of the year!
Finally, we’ve been able to introduce a glimpse of the recent 1.2 PC update, including over a dozen new items and recipes, two completely new armour sets, and more than 20 new deadly foes including eight new Zombie enemies and six new fearsome new Demon Eye variants! All of that and all the original Terraria content too – 200 crafting recipes, over 25 block types to build anything you can imagine, more than 100 monsters (zombies, wyverns, unicorns, and evil clowns ), over 30 inhabitants to meet and recruit to your home, and over a dozen environments to explore – there’s never been a better time to play!
The PS Vita version of Terraria really does offer a whole new way to pick up and play the game that’s beloved by millions of Terrarians already. We hope you love it too!
