After much development and expectation from fans, 505 Games is releasing a port the popular PC game Terraria on consoles. The game is available now for PlayStation 3 through the PlayStation Network and will be released on Xbox 360 Wednesday via Xbox Live Arcade.

Terraria is priced at $14.99 on PSN and will be 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live.

Originally released in May 2011, Terraria was developed by independent game developer Re-Logic. It is an open-ended 2D scrolling action-adventure that has often been compared to Minecraft, though it has enough distinctive features to be a separate and unique game.

[adsense250itp]In Terraria, gamers control a character of their own creation. When done, players are placed into a huge randomly generated world that cycles through both day and night. Players must explore and survive in this world by crafting items, finding treasure, gathering resources, building houses and fighting off enemies scattered throughout the world. Enemies include menacing bosses that can be encountered while journeying or summoned through the use of specific items. Random events such as enemy invasions and meteor strikes will also keep players on their toes and add more surprises and life to the virtual world they occupy.

The game is also goal-based with the biggest reward being in the form of non-playable characters that will start populating the environment, especially inside of buildings. They can give aid to the player by selling items that can be of great help.

The console version of the game will remain true to the spirit of the original but has been modified in order to be compatible and playable for Xbox 360 and PS3 systems. New additions have also been implemented for this version like a new tutorial mode to help players transition into the game. Gameplay has been expanded with brand new surprises that include new armor, weapons, pets, music and enemies, including a brand new final boss.

The major additions to the console version of Terraria found in its multiplayer mode. Players can now invite up to seven other players online at the press of a button for both co-op and competitive gaming using the immediate invite system. Multiplayer can also be played locally with up to four players playing using traditional split screen.
