There's no stopping Terraria. I played, and I do mean played, the 2D sandbox game years ago on PC, and it was quite the time sink. Back then, I didn't imagine it'd come to any other platforms, but it has -- to consoles, handhelds, phones, and tablets. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are up next. Those versions will be out digitally next week and at retail on December 2.
Publisher 505 Games has written about the PlayStation 4 port specifically, noting that players will be able to pinch to zoom in/out on the DualShock 4 touchpad, and it'll support cross-platform multiplay and saves with the PS3 and PS Vita editions. Also, for a limited time, the PS Vita game will be bundled with Terraria for PS4 at no extra charge.
"We're also working hard on a World Map companion app for mobile and tablet devices, which you'll be able to download for free to see where you are in the PS4 game in real-time, and work out what kind of interesting (or scary!) stuff is all around you," says 505's Richard Gittins.
I'll be passing. Also, $29.99 for a physical copy seems pricey.
