Terraria 1.3 Adds Expert Mode, A Portal Gun, And New Lands To Explore On June 30th



ReLogic has released a trailer for the upcoming and huge 1.3 update to sandbox-action game Terraria. The update will be available for Windows players on June 30th while Mac and Linux players should get it sometime in July.


ReLogic also noted that this 1.3 update is the result of months of work from the entire team. The announcement also came with a teaser that read: “In an age of Darkness & a time of Evil…when the world needed a Hero…they got – you. With an array of new weapons, functionality, facelifts, and features at your disposal – will you be up to the challenges posed by the new foes in your path…as well as some old enemies that have learned some new tricks?”


More specifically, though, you can consult the trailer for further details. It tells us that the world has grown even darker and with it comes new lands to explore and new invaders to conquer (namely pirates and aliens). The update will also add an Expert Mode for those who really want to test their survival skills. Plus, there will be new boss mechanics, as well as a new boss described only as “an ancient evil” – it looks pretty nasty.


Finally, there will be a Camera Mode added, new achievements, streamlined multiplayer and cloud saving with Steam integration,  and 800 new items including a portal gun.
