Terraria 1.4 Release Date
Assuming you’re a seasoned player who usually keep tab on everything Terraria, you do notice that “albeit” the delay, the company’s updates are “consistently stable”. They try as much as possible not to break the game with every new features added and with each updates comes new contents.
Re-Logic’s plan for the upcoming Terraria 1.4 patch (also know as Journey’s End) is to make it the most remarkable update ever.

For folks wondering if it will be available on PS4 and Xbox One, the answer is yes. But do not expect it to be released at the same time. The PC update will debut first followed by other consoles as well as mobile.

What is Terraria
For folks completely unaware, the Minecraft inspired 2D side-scrolling game Terraria is a build-it-yourself or an exploration indie platformer that lets you build whatever you want from a broad range of craftable items. It includes randomly generated worlds as well as minions and bosses.
One of its unique aspects is that it takes more from a fantasy tale in the sense that it features powerful swords, potions, abilities and forms of magic. Terraria brings stunning graphics no doubt and there is also a multiplayer as well as team PvP settings.
