What it’s about:

From terrariaotherworld.com

“Set in an alternate dimension within the Terraria universe, Terraria: Otherworld places the player in a life-and-death struggle to restore a once-pristine world – now overrun by a malevolent force that has corrupted nature itself – to its original splendor. Along with a rag-tag band of survivors, will you be able to successfully harness the power of an array of weaponry, magic, defenses, and even the world itself to thwart the designs of this unseen evil?

Combining the experience of sandbox gameplay with role-playing and strategy elements, Terraria: Otherworld explores the Terraria experience in an innovative and unique way – providing a fresh approach to the “open world” genre.”

Personal Thoughts:

It’s definitely not a sequel, which can be a good thing. There is less cheesy old school bit graphicness, which helped define the original Terraria.. Also, this seems to focus a bit more on some big story and your role in it, rather than the self-entrepreneur exploits of the original.  The tones and atmosphere in this tears implies a somewhat darker feel. Overall, Otherworld could take some time getting used to for hardcore Terraria fans (I am more of a casual).

So this is something of a side story, or spinoff. But often that implies a game that is not as large or grand as the original. Perhaps in the next “teaser,” we can raise our expectations. Hopefully, Otherworld will be as grand and expansive in gameplay as the original. For now, let us anticipate..

  1. I love the look of it but the trailer doesn’t show anything exciting to me! I have a huge fan of Terraria and have played it on all platforms and just recently PS4. But I can’t help but think this is just a cash cow. Where is the Terraria 2 that Re-Logic said is being made? I hope this doesn’t turn out to be it……
