The final update to Terraria is here, and it’s a huge one.
While Terria is often compared to Minecraft, AKA, the 2D Minecraft, we should definitely give the game the respect it deserves.
Terraria will be going through its final major content update for the game, dubbed Journey’s End. For those who don’t remember, the game was released back in 2011. Many updates later, the Re-Logic has decided that they’ll be releasing their last update.
Whether they just want to cash out before they start losing profits, or have dwindling sales numbers, both Terraria and Minecraft are both not as popular as they once were.
This was revealed at E3 and will add over 800 new items for players to discover in the huge world. Re-Logic has stated that this update will rework over pretty much every part of the game and released a trailer to detail some changes.
Journey’s end will bring many updates to the game, including new modes, weather, block swapping, the void vault, and even random minigames.
Re-Logic hasn’t told us everything yet, but just from the trailer, we can see pretty cool things about what to expect.
They kind of want to just update the game and leave it in a good place. They’ll also add new foes to fight and new challenges. They’re working world generation, such as adding new biomes and Bestiary data. This data book logs everything about enemies in the game and their drops.
It’s sad that Terrari won’t be updating anymore after this, even though we’re unsure why exactly. What if this update brings life back to the game? Will they continue releasing more updates? Will this really be the end of Terraria? Is this just to gauge market demand?

I specialize in indie games as I think they don’t get the attention they deserve. I’m just your typical consumer who has some opinions to share. I’ve been reviewing games since I was 12. I started out reviewing them with friends on old forums that now no longer exist. Then I went to online VoDs, which I’ve lost interest in.
And now I’m here to deliver my thoughts in written format!
