Terraria - A New Milestone Achieved with 20 Million Copies Sold!

Terraria has sold over 20 million copies since it was released in 2011.

Ever since the release of Minecraft, the world has come to terms with graphics not being the only thing that matters in a game. Terraria joins the ranks of Minecraft as a game that is quite pixelated, yet still massively popular. In Terraria, you can explore an almost endless world by yourself or with friends. The world is filled with animals, monsters, and even robots! There are also numerous dungeons with bosses who can challenge anyone.

Despite retro graphics and a 2D perspective, Terraria has cracked the 20 million mark. This huge number of players has been growing ever since it was released in 2011, and was finally reached towards the end of 2016. A large contributor to the game's popularity was the release of content patch 1.3. Not only did they add a lot of new game elements, they also netted 8.5 million new players.

A trailer for the patch was released which gave a view into the contents of the patch. If you haven't played in a while, check the trailer out:

Re-Logic had a few words about this wonderful milestone:

"We wanted to take a few moments today to share and celebrate a pretty big milestone with all of you, as of the end of 2016, Terraria has surpassed the 20,000,000 copies sold mark! Since it's launch in May 2011, our 2D sandbox adventure has come a long way - and we owe so much of that to the amazingly strong and loyal support of each member of our community."

The developers are looking back at the years and have nothing but praise and thanks for the community which has helped Terraria reach this astounding milestone. One could only hope that it won't stop at 20 million. Who knows, maybe we will see 25 million players sooner than we expect.

Do you fit into the 20 million players? When did you start playing Terraria? Let us know in the comments below!
