Terraria artwork for the Journey's End expansion

[Update #2]: Two years after its 'final' expansion, Terraria's is getting the chunky quality-of-life focused Labor of Love update in late September 2022.

[Update]: In a bit of an unexpected announcement, Terraria and Don't Starve have just launched a big cross-over event!

All good things must come to an end, and so today Terraria will receive its final update. However, Terraria won't be going out with a whimper as the upcoming Journey's End expansion is absolutely ridiculous in scope.

Expect to see around 800 new items to find or craft, a whole host of new enemies and bosses to throw yourself against, a greatly improved world generation system, and even an enhanced weather system. There will also a couple of new mini-biomes, a new difficulty mode that will pose a true challenge to even veterans, and perhaps most importantly of all, the ability to both play golf and create your own courses!

You can get a little bit of a sneak peek at what Journey's End looks like in-game through the original announcement trailer. Have a gander, it's pretty exciting stuff:

On the other hand, if you're looking to dive into the fine details, you'll find the full patch notes over at the official website. The list is absurdly long and informative, so if you're actually planning to go through all of it, you might want to bring a cup of coffee and some camping gear with you.

Have fun with the new update once it goes live, and if you don't already have Terraria, you really should check it out by hopping over to Steam.
