Terraria 1.2 screen shots

It is no secret that Terraria is my favourite Indie game, and back in May they announced a new update for the PC version, version 1.2. It has been waaay too long now, it looks like there's a huge number of additions on its way. Here are some of the screen shots I borrowed from Terraria's Facebook Page.

Wow, those look amazing! Here is a summary of new features based on the above screen shots:

  • Clouds with rain.
  • LOTS more bricks and blocks to build with.
  • Pets! (I see a turtle)
  • New doors
  • Bigger trees
  • Slimes have umbrellas when it rains (it looks like)
  • Rainbow thing?
  • Waterfalls
  • Better water
  • Zombies with coats when you're in the snow biome
  • Bunny gun?
  • Much more backgrounds and wall tiles
  • New Jungle Biome boss (Plantera)
  • Underground trees and more plants
  • Cannons!
  • Minimap
  • Lots more items
  • Half bricks
  • Stained glass
  • Coloured water
  • Lots more creatures
  • Bigger variety of chests
  • You can dye your armor!
  • A beach ball
This is going to a big update! The devs also mentioned better network code, which will be a godsend, setting up port forwarding or using something like Hamachi is too complicated for most.

Oh, and you can run over terrain with 1 block high "steps" - that is probably the thing I'm looking forward to the most!

This update can't come soon enough!
