With a vast array of materials and items to collect, Terraria is far more than a mere block building game, gamers experience is limited only by their own imaginations; the world really is yours to shape and explore.
Utilising an immediate invite system, from within their existing game hosts can invite up to 7 others players into the game for co-operative or competitive play; all at the press of a button. Multiplayer supports not only 8 players online but also 4 player local split screen as well as 4 vs 4 split screen via Xbox Live and Playstation Network.
Tim Woodley, Head of Global Brand at 505 Games said, "We're all huge fans of Terraria and have been overwhelmed by the support we've received from the existing community since we began working with the property. And it's been amazing to see how many of those fans have been asking for a portable version of Terraria so they can take their adventures with them on the go. The biggest challenge for us is how to give players the control they need to fully enjoy the experience and we're really excited to explore the potential of the multiple input options that the PlayStation Vita affords us."
Commenting on the announcement, SCEE's Senior Business Development Manager Shahid Ahmad said, "We are tremendously excited about bringing Terraria to PS Vita. It's fantastic news for fans who have been begging for the game to be available on PS Vita and it's fantastic news for us too, we are delighted about the addition to the platform. For us this is a real coup, the opportunity to bring such a loved game to one of our platforms is really exciting. We are also really confident about how much fans are going to love the PS Vita version; the touch screen will ensure a totally unique experience."
