Terraria Celebrates Its 10th Birthday By Giving Players A New World Seed

It’s hard to believe that Terraria released all the way back in 2009. Yet here we are in 2021 celebrating the game’s 10th anniversary. Yet, despite being rather long in the tooth, Terraria is still getting regular updates, including a new celebratory world seed [via PC Gamer].

Back in March, Terraria’s developers, Re-Logic, added full Steam workshop support to the game. However, players can also now access a new world seed by figuring out its name.

As you’d perhaps expect, the seed’s name is linked to the game’s anniversary, which is Re-logic’s way of honouring the occasion.

On the surface, the new seed appears to feature biomes with different colour palettes. However, there’s plenty of surprises to be found within this seed, such as new items, loot and crafting materials. Of course, the seed also comes with a host of bug fixes, which addresses the following issues:

  • Corrected the damage on Frost Armor’s set bonus debuff from 20 to 25 DPS.
  • Vulkan and Metal rendering issues that lead to crash, on FNA builds.
  • a certain exploit.
  • missing tooltip in Queen Slime’s treasure bag.
  • every vine type except Normal/Flower vines from passing on paint as they grow longer.
  • King Slime’s spiked minions being able to pick up money and despawn with it, similar to Queen Slime’s minions previously.

While Terraria is often dubbed a 2D version of Minecraft, the game’s 10th birthday is a testament to its longevity. Hopefully, Terriaria continues to define the 2D sandbox genre long into the future, while inspiring more games to follow in its footsteps.
