Bringing new multiplayer options, new bosses and the ability to ride Orcas to the table, PC hit Terraria will be coming to the Xbox Live Arcade next week, bringing its own brand of 2D Minecraft-esque gameplay to consoles.

Set within huge and colourful sandbox, Terraria enables you to shape the world around you with a variety of tools, as you collect a variety of materials and items that you can put to good use.

Terraria will be available to download on XBLA from March 27th for 1200 Microsoft Points. The game will include a host of new features exclusively for the console version.

I think a different developer is working on this port of the game, so it's up to them I think.

Plus, the developers of the PC version DID stop work last year but are actually coming back to work on it soon, so not to worry!

Awesome game, but in all honestly this game is £1.50 on Steam so I'd pick it up there right now rather than £10 for this version. Almost any PC can run it.

@7 and @9: LOL!

OT: I loved the game on the PC, but I wonder how well the controls will transition to the Xbox. I can't imagine playing this game without a mouse.

Already have it on PC and getting the xbox version too. It's a little bit more action/combat than minecraft which i like. Mining and chopping trees 90% of the time is dull.

1200 MSP is really steep considering how many times the PC version has been under $2.00 (and currently is). I doubt this edition adds $13.00+ in new content.

See if MSP wasn't a thing and any XBLA and DLC purchases was actually cash, it'd totally be viable to sell this at a reasonable price.

Won't happen, sadly, because Microsoft.

If you want to play with friends on pc, buy pc version. Sinple
Most people i play with are xbox buddies, so buying the xbox version is np

Why do pc sales go so low? Because you can pirate these games so easily, sure you can pirate xbox games too but it normally requirea more effort then pressing a download button.

If I can get a couple of friends to play the trial and get them to get the full game, the 1200 price point will be worth it. My laptop isn't for gaming and kinda struggles here and there to play Minecraft and this, so having a guaranteed smooth running game on the Xbox with extra content is alright by me.

@25 the reason things are available cheaper on pc is because pc digital sales have an actual free competitive market, you wanna buy a digital; copy on Xbox theres only one place you can get it from and thats the live arcade which means MS can charge what the hell they like for it and also charge devs for the privilege

where on pc one company decides to charge too much you can generally go somewhere else and find it cheaper
