Music

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Terraria has over eighty music tracks across every version of the game. Each one will play and loop endlessly while the player is in a specific biome or while certain events are taking place. Music is individual to each player, and as such its volume can be lowered or disabled entirely within the settings menu.

All the music in Terraria was composed by Scott Lloyd Shelly of Resonance Array.

Desktop, Console, Old-gen console, and Mobile Versions In-game, it is possible to record and play these songs using the Music Box accessory.

Soundtrack[edit | edit source]

The soundtracks can be listened to and purchased from Bandcamp as three separate volumes or from Steam as a single soundtrack. The first two volumes are also included when the game is bought on GOG.com. Tracks are listed in the order they appear on the soundtrack.

Old-gen console and 3DS/ Mobile 1.2 soundtracks[edit | edit source]

The console soundtrack features a mix of the desktop soundtrack and several additional tracks which are listed below. Although Blake Robinson was commissioned to create the music for the trailers, the in-game music was created by Scott Lloyd Shelly.

Desktop version 1.2 adopted the console version's "Desert" track as is, but introduced its own "Snow" and "Boss 4" themes, using the console tracks instead respectively as "Ice" and "Boss 5". When the console version caught up with version desktop 1.2, it kept its own original "Snow" and "Boss 4" themes as they were, instead swapping the desktop's tracks to the Ice and Boss 5 slots.

Omitted Tracks[edit | edit source]

Currently, the following tracks are missing from the official soundtrack and are unavailable for purchase, possibly due to "Desert" and "Boss 5" being originally exclusive to the console and mobile editions, and to Volume 2 having already a track entitled "Ice". They were removed from mobile with the addition of the 1.3.0 patch along with the 1.2 controls. They may be released in the future.

Desktop 1.4.0.1 Tracks[edit | edit source]

The following tracks were introduced in the 1.4 patch. They will be released with the official soundtrack after the 1.4.1 patch and are currently unavailable for purchase.[1]

Otherworldly Tracks[edit | edit source]

The soundtrack originally written for the cancelled game Terraria: Otherworld was added to Terraria with the Journey's End update. It features 27 themes. In-game, the Party Girl NPC can be used to switch between normal music and "otherwordly" music after a world with the 05162020 world seed has been visited for the first time. Tracks follow the same naming convention as Terraria<nowiki>'s, resulting in some duplicated names (music boxes for these songs disambiguate by being called "Otherworldly Music Box" instead of just "Music Box"), but there are less songs in total: for example there are only two "generic" boss music and a single track for all invasion events. Interestingly, the Wall of Flesh gets a unique theme with this soundtrack, instead of sharing the Boss 2 theme with The Twins. Plantera, the Moon Lord, and the Lunar Events also get unique tracks, as in the regular soundtrack. Most pre-hardmode bosses get the Boss 1 theme; all other hardmode bosses get the Boss 2 theme.

The Terraria: Otherworld soundtrack was released on Steam on June 17, 2020. It was composed by Jeff Broadbent and Jonathan van den Wijngaarden, also featuring Jeff Ball on violin, Tina Guo on cello, and Franck Klepacki on guitar. The album version features 25 songs, two fewer than the 27 in-game tracks. The album songs also differ from the in-game songs by being much longer and holding various instrumental enhancements.

86 Jungle (Otherworldly) Jungle, Underground Jungle n/a 1.4.0.1 A surprisingly tranquil track which seems to feature hurdy-gurdy music towards its end. The extended, enhanced version sold as part of the official Otherworld soundtrack is titled "Sky Guardian" (another name for the Wyvern) which suggests it was meant to play on Floating Islands or similar instead.

88 Hallow (Otherwordly) Surface Hallow n/a 1.4.0.1 A track which features angelic, hymn-like female vocals followed by calm piano music. It's the only in-game Otherworld track longer than 2 minutes.
