Mobile only.png Mobile-Only Content: This information (or parts of it) applies only to the mobile version of Terraria.
This article is about updates to the Mobile Version of Terraria. For Desktop updates, see Desktop Version history. For Console updates, see Console Version history. For 3DS updates, see 3DS Version history. For future updates, see Upcoming features.

This page lists update details for the various Mobile Versions of Terraria.

  • Note that the Android versions sold by Google Play Icon.png Google Play and Amazon icon.gif Amazon are on separate update paths (each with different version numbers and release dates), so their respective releases are listed separately, even though they both run on Android devices.
  • Amazon icon.gif Amazon version tends to receive updates around 2-4 weeks later than other mobile versions, excluding verification.
  • Nintendo 3DS version is classified as a Console version, but has its own update path. See 3DS Version history.
  • 1.3 kill counter has been added in the Mobile 1.2.4 update, but these still do not provide buffs like the PC version banners. Neither do the banners drop every fifty kills, and still have a 1/200 drop chance.
  • 1.3 Slime bonus chance has also been added to mobile.
  • Sadly, Amazon icon.gif Kindle Fire HD and prior can no longer receive updates as of 1.2.4.
