505 Games announced today it will be bringing the independent smash hit Terraria to Xbox LIVE Arcade 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.
With a vast array of materials and items to collect, Terraria 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.”
Terraria will be available in early 2013.
