Terraria 1.4, or Journey’s End, is finally here for PC. The huge update has brought many changes to the game, and with it, many new questions. When will the Terraria update come to mobile and console? Why are there no strange plants spawning? Are any meteors going to land?

First up, the mobile and console version of Terraria. Currently, the console version of Terraria is developed by Pipeworks, who port the original PC code into Unity for Xbox and PlayStation. This does take a while – the console versions are still in 1.3.5, which came out in April.

It is likely the console update will take a year or longer to release on a console following previous update patterns. The mobile version, developed by DR Studios, may also take a while. The game is even further behind than consoles, on

In terms of gameplay FAQ’s, the changelog for Terraria was huge, so it’s likely you might have missed some of the smaller changes made to the game. New biomes have been added, as well as 1000’s of new items, which can be a bit tricky to get your head around.

One of the most frequently asked questions for those just starting out in 1.4 is: where are all the meteors? In the previous version of Terraria, you had to destroy Crimson Hearts or Shadow Orbs to spawn a Meteor, but now you need to destroy the Brain of Cthulu or the Eater of Worlds to get a meteor to spawn.

For those who like to customise their look, you might also be wondering: where are all the strange plants?聽Strange plants are used to make special dyes to add flair to your armor and costumes. You can no longer find strange plants until you’ve activated Hardmode in the game.

What is luck? Luck is a new mechanic added into Terraria 1.4 and is based on using biome-specific torches. You may have already come across Desert Torches or Snow Torches, and if you place these in the same biome the drop-rate of unique items from mobs is increased. The effect of torches does not stack.

In 1.4, the accessories slots have also been changed up. You could previously use this area to store situational items, such as the Angler’s Earring or Shiny Stone, and switch them to your active gear when you needed them. These accessory slots are now limited to items that change the appearance of your character.
