Exciting news arrived on Monday for fans of the smash-hit indie action-adventure sandbox game, Terraria. The game’s developer Re-logic announced the fourth and final major update for the game — Terraria: Journey’s End — will launch next month on PC on May 16, which happens to be the ninth anniversary of the Terraria’s launch.
Re-Logic posted the following announcement with a screenshot displaying the two new game modes, Journey and Master.
We are extremely excited to announce that we will be releasing Journey’s End on the 9th anniversary of Terraria- May 16, 2020! We hope you enjoy this latest reveal… see you in a month, Terrarians.
In addition to the announcement on Terraria’s news blog, studio founder Andrew Spinks also shared the same screen shot from the blog post on his Twitter account.

Journey’s End, otherwise known as Terraria 1.4, was first revealed at E3 2019. The final update adds more than 800 new craftable items, revamped biomes, new weather affects, quality of life features such as auto swapping out blocks for new materials, new enemies, and uh, for some reason, golf. Not only can you play golf, but you can actually make your own golf courses. This update truly has it all.
The update is free for all players who already own the game. There’s no word at this time on when it will roll out to console and mobile versions, but we have to imagine it won’t be too far off. And for those of you who are sad this is the final update to the game, don’t worry, Re-Logic isn’t going to outright abandon Terraria. The developer still plans to keep the game rolling along for many years to come by ensuring bug fixes and mods are continually addressed.
Perhaps the biggest take away from this news is that it reminds us of what Re-Logic announced back in May of 2019 — it’s time for a new game. “For Re-Logic, this means that we will finally be tackling our second title. We do not yet know what this will be – and it may not even be a Terraria title – so expect a time of silence from us on that front until we are ready to share more what we decide to pursue.”
