In what may turn out to the single largest update to the game yet, the Terraria 1.3 trailer launched today that was so stuffed with goodness Thanksgiving came early. Seriously, how much new stuff is teased in this trailer for the first time? I also found it pretty awe inspiring that they've sold 12 million copies of the game.... 12.... million...

Terraria 1.3 launches on June 30th and no word yet if that will include the Linux and Mac ports but they are adding in Steam cloud saves, which is worth the price of admission by itself.

Just came to post this. From what I've read, Linux and Mac are coming later, probably about a month later, because they couldn't get them working to the awesomeness that they wanted while focusing on other things as part of the update. I'm totally fine with that.

That's a hell of a change log.

Hoooly crap, that is insane. So when are we firing up the server again? We have to do the expert mode!

Travis   Admin wrote on 06/29/2015 at 01:39am

Ooh good point. Expert mode or normal mode at the start? Votes?

I'd say normal at start, expert later. I think exploring the new content will be a ride enough for a while until we get to "end game."

Yeah, the unfortunate thing is that you have to choose expert mode at world creation. I think the best way is to get to a good end game spot then make a new world.

It sounds like the expert mode stuff doesn't really kick in until hardmode (the mobs leveling up, ect). So I say expert mode. :D

If you're concerned about us getting our butts kicked, we can always allow bringing in supplies from our existing characters/worlds.

I'm not too sure. On my own, I'll probably not try out expert mode until I'm geared up. If we were together we'd probably have a better chance at surviving it than on our own. I don't think we're sure about when a server will be available due to waiting on TShock to update. Otherwise there is a new mutliplayer feature to try out. Maybe we'll be able to meet in the Cloud.

BTW, if you notice Terraria already has locked achievements. I'm still wondering what time 1.3 will be released. Will it be a midnight UTC release or for another time zone? If so, which? It's getting close to midnight here on the East Coast, but it's already Monday afternoon in Australia.

It's usually (I think) midnight PST, where Valve is located. So Monday night or Tuesday morning, depending how you look at it, at 3AM Eastern.
