In Terraria you control a charming and loveable 2D character reminiscent of popular 16-bit 1990's retro RPGs. Choose the gender, select between 36 different hair styles, and customize the color of your character's hair, eyes, skin, and clothes. As you progress you'll find and create equipment that can further change and personalize their character's appearance.
Terraria possesses numerous “biome” environments such as forests, deserts, jungles, and lava-filled underworlds, ensuring that you're constantly discovering new and visually unique areas. Additionally, the game features day and night cycles, spontaneous events, destructible environments, and a huge variety of building options; meaning previously familiar areas can undergo dramatic change in a very short period of time. Every environment in Terraria has a variety of interactive elements to entice and reward; trees and shrubs to be harvested or planted, monsters and animals to be hunted, the ground to be mined and treasure to be discovered! As you progress through the game you can construct more and more complex buildings, which can in turn attract NPCs. Every game world is procedurally generated, with dynamic water and lava simulations, and infinite ways to build and explore. This “sandbox” element of Terraria is easily one of its most popular features.
In addition to the natural longevity of randomly generated worlds and sandbox gameplay, the multiplayer aspect (both cooperative and competitive) opens up a whole new way to experience Terraria. The ease of multiplayer makes it incredibly fun and encourages you to go on repeated adventures with your friends, either in competition or partnership or to show off your treasure and creations ... The leaderboards will further motivate you to continue playing in order to compete both globally and against your friends! Because Terraria allows for so much creativity in building, mining and accessorizing the game has a healthy life span well beyond the basic adventure gameplay.
Grab your friends and your pickaxe, and enter the world of Terraria! You never know where it might take you...
