Info on the 1.2 Update for Console

#1monty2589Posted 10/19/2013 2:41:05 AM
For all the people that are wondering when 1.2 will release on console, here is a link discussing it. I thought it would be much later than what the article says, but we will wait and see.

.....505Games has commented, in a PM to a TTT staff member, that the console versions of Terraria shall be receiving the ‘First Wave’ of the Terraria 1.2 update. By this they mean that the first ‘chunk’ of 1.2 items, game mechanics and NPC’s (full list shall be released with the update) along with a code change from C#/XNA to C++ has been submitted to Sony and Microsoft for approval. If all goes well 505Games will have a release date in the next week or two.

.....In addition to this 505Games has stated that the update shall be FREE, although they have stated that they cannot comment on future updates and ‘wave’s’ just yet and only know about this one.

.....505Games has also stated that “since the Vita version has been confirmed to have Cross-Play” it will have the same 1.2 content that the PS3 version receives, further stating that the “game versions will match due to having the same source code.”

.....Since the Vita version has been confirmed to have Cross-Play, it will have the same 1.2 content that the PS3 version gets in these updates when it is released. The game versions will match due to having the same source code.

I played 1.2 a little on PC over the weekend. I used Inventory Editor so I could try out new items. There is just sooo much new stuff in it. It is nuts. I do prefer playing on console though because my left arm is messed up and it is hard for ,e to use a keyboard in a game. I have hooked up a 360 controller o my pc, but it isn't the same. I wish games that are on console and pc would have a console controller layout built in to switch to if wanted.

I find the Mouse/ Controller hybrid to be satisfactory. Left button for grappling hook and left trigger for jump. The rest should be obvious.

My only real complaint is the lack of auto-aim when mining. I got spoiled on console.
