Terraria Hits A Huge Sales Milestone And Celebrates With A Sale
Terraria has done very well, and is celebrating with a discount on PC as the developers push towards the next major update.
Terraria, the 2D construction game that first released in 2011, has just hit a major sales milestone. According to the game's website, Terraria has now sold 30 million copies across PC, consoles, and mobile, with the majority of those sales being on PC.
The game has sold 14 million units on PC, 7.6 on consoles, and 8.7 on mobile. The console number is lower despite the game having been made available on eight different systems since it launched--PS3, Xbox 360, Vita, PS4, Xbox One, 3DS, Wii U, and Switch. Terraria hit 20 million sales back in February 2017, and has evidently continued to sell well since then.
The game, which will receive a substantial Journey's End update soon, is currently discounted on Steam to celebrate its huge sales milestone. Until April 3, the game and its soundtrack are discounted by 50%, so you can see what has attracted 30 million prior customers.
Terraria received an 8/10 in GameSpot's original review of the PC version, and has continued to expand since then. A spin-off, Terraria: Otherworld, was canceled in 2017 because its developers were well behind schedule.
