Good morning Terrarians!

In case you haven't had a chance to jump into the Terraria universe this morning, the patch for the 1.2 issues has been released for:

  • Xbox 360 (Global)
  • PS3 (Global)
  • PS Vita SCEE (Sony Computer Entertainment Europe)

We are waiting on final confirmation from Sony regarding the patch for PS Vita SCEA (Sony Computer Entertainment America). Fingers crossed, we should get confirmation from SCEA this morning followed shortly by a release date (maybe 24-48 hours after confirmation). We will let you know as soon as we know.


Until the SCEA Vita patch is released, you will experience cross save issues between PS3and the PS Vita as these two platforms will be using different versions of the game. Once the patch is released, there should be no issue. We are aware of an extremely rare issue where the game will fail to generate a world. Rebooting the console and reattempting should work as a workaround. There are a few more issues that have been addressed since this patch was sent for certification and will be included in a future patch. And, as always, please report any issues directly to us via:
