In our continuing “Does it have split-screen co-op?” adventures, here’s an update on Terraria.

The Nintendo Switch version – which is pricey and not ideal but good enough for plenty of families – now has two-player split-screen support. That said, the feature only works when your Switch is docked.

Here’s how to access it (after downloading the patch):

  • Player 1 first needs to start their game normally and enter their world.
  • Player 2 can turn on their controller and sign into a (free) system-wide Switch account.
  • Player 2 can then select their existing Terraria character or create a new one.
  • That’s it! Both players can zoom in and out by hitting pause and using ZL or ZR.

Two-player co-op is better than no-player co-op, that’s for sure.

Today’s update includes “a solid handful of bug fixes,” so solo adventurers are also in luck.
