Terraria for Windows Phone 8 releasing by the end of the year
As the Android port of the critically acclaimed indie 2D sandbox game Terraria launched on the Google Play Store a couple of hours ago, and given how it’s already available for purchase on the iOS App Store since late August, every Windows Phone-owning gamer certainly wondered what’s the status of the promised Windows Phone 8 adaptation of this fantastic game. We’ve contacted the Dutch developer Codeglue responsible for the WP8 port regarding this question, and in short – Terraria is coming to the Windows Phone Marketplace soon, undoubtedly by the end of the year, but hopefully much sooner than that.
According to Codeglue’s Peter de Jong, “the Windows Phone version shares the same code base as the other versions, so it can’t be far away,” but even though it’s nearly finished, it’s up to 505 Games to determine the exact WP App Store release date, and given how reserved they were towards the media in the last couple of months, it’s unlikely we’ll get wind of it beforehand. Nevertheless, we’re doing things the hard way by keeping an eye on the WP Marketplace for Terraria, so rest assured that you’ll still be notified the moment it launches, regardless of the 505 Games’ media policy.
