Terraria initially released in 2011 for PC. It is now available for almost every modern gaming platform imaginable with a Nintendo Switch version coming soon. For those who don’t know, it is a 2D action-adventure sandbox game that incorporates survival and crafting gameplay elements. Early last year, Re-Logic announced its popular title has sold over 20 million copies since it launched.
If the Xbox One is your primary platform of choice, now would be a good time to pick up Terraria; the game is on sale for 70% percent off until March 5th, 2018.
