Bear in mind that you now have the same great content in two hits.There were more updates on the other platforms simply because they were released earlier. The logic for being unable to further update Wii U is, regrettably, the same as the ‘old gen’ machines – though the Wii U does admittedly have more resources than the 360/PS3, it is still a fraction as capable as PS4 and Xbox One, and we need all their available horsepower to take Terraria where we want to go next.Those who follow the sandbox game Terraria are well aware it's going through a bit of a transitional phase.Last year, 505 Games announced a change of developers for the console versions from Engine Software to Pipeworks Studio.There’s plenty of news surrounding the Nintendo versions of Terraria. The update is about “clearing up the handful of issues from the launch of that version” and also “brings Wii U into line with the other consoles in terms of content.” That means the inclusion of the Stylist, plus new mechanic fixes and items. This will actually be the last update for Terraria on Wii U.Writing on the Terraria forums, 505 said: “This update is intended to draw a line under Terraria on Wii U as it did with the other platforms – so we are afraid that no further updates for Wii U will be possible due to technical limitations."For now, enjoy these handful of goodies (especially our non-English speaking fans), look forward to a second round to come...and towards even bigger things down the road." The full patch notes are below.
The most recent content update is 188.8.131.52 with the latest patch being released on April 25th, 2017.
With the change, Pipeworks intend to bring some huge improvements to the console and mobile versions of Terraria.
Among the changes are a complete rewriting of the console and mobile versions' code so they will more closely resemble the PC version.
And it's not all bad for last-gen players, as there are ways to transfer worlds from Xbox 360 to Xbox One.
The developers have also hinted they are "working with Sony and Microsoft to help make the transition as smooth as possible for current owners – keep an eye out for some exciting promotions!
