In a press release today, it was announced that the smash hit sandbox game Terrariawill be coming to consoles. Previously a PC exclusive, Terraria made a name for itself during the Steam Summer sales where it was often selling for as little as $0.80.
The gameplay could be said to have been modeled off the even bigger PC hit, Minecraft, as it places players in a big open world with materials to mine and craft. However, the most obvious difference is that Terraria is two-dimensional which has provided it with the variation necessary to avoid being called a Minecraft clone.
"I can't say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation3," said Andrew Spinks, the creator of Terraria, "To see it come so far is a complete shock, especially after such humble beginnings. It's always been my dream to have as many people as possible know and enjoy Terraria as much as I have, and this is another big step in that direction."
No details on the upcoming port were announced, however the game is tentatively scheduled to land sometime early next year. It was also announced that Terraria has now sold 1.6 million copies on the PC.
