It's been about a year since Re-Logic's Terraria [$4.99] made its way to the iOS App Store courtesy of 505 Games, and today 505 has announced on the official Terraria blog that a major update for the game should be arriving this week. The update will add the oft-requested "Hard Mode" which is found in the desktop and console versions of the game. Hard Mode is activated by defeating the Wall of Flesh enemy, which will then "transform" the game adding "new biomes, new bosses, 20+ new enemies, 100+ new items, New NPCs" and will allow you to "Use the Pwnhammer to destroy Demon Altars and create new ores."

In addition to Hard Mode, the updated Terraria will feature a new tap-to-target aiming system as well as Everyplay support, which will allow you to record replays of your antics and share them with the world. We really loved Terraria when it launched on iOS last year, and it's surprising just how well the game fits on mobile and how well it works with touch controls (though MFi controllers are supported too). This latest update is set to hit iOS any day now, and will bring it more in line with the bigger versions of Terraria on other platforms.

    Now all they need to do is add online multiplayer

    It's time to dust off my Terraria skills so I can defeat the wall of flesh one last time.

    • lll Anubis lll

  • Kenan2000

    WOAH OH MY DAYUM!

  • ImJPaul

    So is this the whole 1.2 update?

    • PaleTunaPls

      No, this isn't the same as the PC 1.2 update, this justs adds hardmode and everything that comes with it.

  • CHEESEYZOMBIE

    I can already hear the fanboys screaming.

  • Kenan2000

    The best thing for me about this is that I kinda got bored with both jjx and minecraft cause of lack of action/bosses.I wanted a very good rpg(I already have monster hunter)but still...I want a building rpg game.I completely forgot about terraria,such news always make my day!

  • Eidaven

    This is great news. I was starting to think it was never going to happen.

  • Speedster117

    YES! I can't wait!

    We also really liked those game breaking bugs and horrid controls as well. Hopefully things change.

  • TheNoobOfTheCentury

    Its out, but im too paranoid (the one update a while ago deleted everything) to download it lol

    • Gameplaya

      It did not delete any of my stuff luckily, so go ahead!

    • housecat

      all i know is that i couldn't play it on my 3rd gen ipod after the St. Patrick's day update (not entirely surprising considering terraria only supports ipod 4/5 and up , but still a let down)
