Terraria 1.4 Update Patch Notes

Below you will find the official patch notes for the brand new 1.4 Terraria update, otherwise known as Journey’s End, which is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

Please note that the notes found below are only the most important parts of the update, for the full details check out the Terraria Forum.

New Changes Specific To Console

  • A host of new settings and options, ranging from graphic quality to control profiles and much, much more!
  • Horizontal vs Vertical Splitscreen Toggle
  • Revised Gamepad mapping to account for the wide range of Journey’s End controls – adjusted Defaults (Console Legacy, Advanced, Simplified) as well!
  • UI Changes to account for Journey’s End Features

New Content

  • Over 1000 new items (beyond 1.3.5), bringing the total item count to over 5000!
  • New Critters to find, Enemies to Battle, and two new Boss Encounters!
  • New minibiomes
  • Blood Moon and Lava Fishing are expanded
  • Brand new epic Terraria Music
  • and much, much more!

Master Mode

A next-level challenge intended for those skilled, brave, or foolish enough to take it on, Master Mode represents the ultimate Terraria challenge. Unrelenting, Master Mode will punish your every mistake and force you to prepare and up your game like never before. Do you have what it takes to prove that you are a Master of Terraria?


Time to hit the links in the world of Terraria! That’s right, Journey’s End brings the timeless game of golf to Terraria. Featuring an array of golf clubs, scorekeeping, and more, Terraria Golf introduces a whole new way to play. Create your own epic golf courses, share them with your friends, and then meet up on the links to challenge each other – who can hit the ball the longest, who has the best short game, and who has what it takes to make that clutch putt when it’s all on the line?

Block Swap

One of the most impactful Quality of Life changes perhaps to ever reach Terraria, Block Swap is one of those features that you will find yourself asking “how did I ever live without this?!” in no time at all. No more will you have to tear down your constructions first in order to spruce them up with new-and-improved blocks or walls! Simply grab the block with which you wish to replace the existing blocks and place away – the new block will be put in place, and the old blocks will be there for you to pick up.

As long as your currently-equipped pick is powerful enough to dig up whatever it is you want to replace, Block Swap is there to serve you well!

Oh… and did we mention it works on chests… without you having to empty them first?

Void Vault

What on the surface appears to simply be the fourth available character storage item – the Void Vault – transforms into an automagical inventory overflow vacuum when combined with the Void Bag held by the player. This combination of items will immediately whisk away any items the player picks up once their inventory is full – and deposit them safely at home in the Void Vault for safekeeping. This won’t totally eliminate all of your inventory woes, but it will certainly cut down on those trips to and from home base!

Graveyard Biome

Beware! For when too many tombstones gather together, the air shall chill and the mists roll in… what mysteries will you find buried six feet deep in the Graveyard?

Full Rebalance Pass On Enemies And Items

As a part of Journey’s End, the team examined and re-examined the balance of the content in the game. From start to finish, no stone was left unturned and no gear left unaccounted for. In the end, what remains is a full rebalancing of the game from top to bottom. Stats have changed, functionality has changed. There is no better time to start a fresh playthrough and experience the new Terraria for the first time!
