Xbox One's Terraria Facing This "Serious Issue"

"Online multiplayer is broken."

8 Comments

A new update for the Xbox One version of Terraria has caused a "serious issue" that makes the game's online multiplayer unplayable.

The new update launched on July 6, and in a tweet today, 505 told fans to "avoid" Terraria's online multiplayer as the company finds a permanent fix.

"We are sorry to confirm that a serious issue exists in the Xbox One Terraria update that was published on July 6, version KTCP-20160531," 505 said (via VideoGamer.com). "Online multiplayer is broken, and players should avoid trying to use that game mode for now.

"Single-player and local multiplayer are not affected, and can be safely used. Be assured that we are working on fixing this currently and we will get a fix out as soon as practical."

There is no word yet on when the fix will be delivered. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.

Terraria was originally released on PC in 2011, before coming to consoles later. The Xbox One version (along with a PlayStation 4 edition) launched in November 2014. Terraria has been a big hit, as it's sold more than 18 million copies across all platforms.

Eddie, how about you just say "Terraria on Xbox One hit with serious issue," instead of making yourself sound like a two bit hack who learned to write by looking at the trash at the bottom of every web page?

@chuge_so: Editorial writes the headlines, not the writers. It's a commonly known fact about journalism.

@_Silent_Jay_: Then I'd be really upset if I was Eddie because his articles are the only ones with headlines like that. Coincidence, right?

And while that's true for things like newspapers and magazines, I don't believe for a second that it applies to websites such as this.

I just had an awesome idea to avoid this from happening in the future. Testing the patches! Pure genius.

@jerjef: Patches get tested (at least by first party certification). Another thing is that they get fixed, and that is decided by producers, not programmers nor testers.

@Warlord_Irochi: Oh absolutely, but how did this one get by? This is not a minor issue or a hard to reproduce goldilocks situation. The MP simply doesn't work.

@jerjef: Could have been overlooked (provably intentionally) with the excuse of "we later send an apology, but this patch needs to go live now because delays cost money". For example.
Personally I don't know. I don't work there ^^;

@jerjef: How about Pokemon Go? They should test ( a LOT MORE ) full "games" also. I use the term game loosely as it's a phone app, not really a game.
