Yesterday, 505 Games revealed that the PlayStation Vita version of Terraria passed Sony testing. Along with this good news, they also confirmed the game will release on December 11, 2013 in Europe and December 17, 2013 in North America.
In addition to the Vita getting a release date, a firmware update was released for the PlayStation 3 version. This update adds Cross-Play compatibility, which allows PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita owners to play with each other. Before you get too excited, it seems Terraria isn’t a Cross-Buy title.
This was somewhat confirmed by Morgan Haro, a PlayStation Community Project Manager, who earlier this week said “this should just be for the PlayStation 3 version”, in response to Terraria being a Cross-Buy title. Based off the phrasing, he doesn’t seem 100% sure, though he also noted that this could change.
