Tastes differ. On the one hand, sometimes we want to play games like Portal 3 that have impressive graphics and super realistic elements. On the other hand, 2D sandbox games, such as Terraria, give more freedom and excitement to players.
An open-world game Terraria was introduced by Re-Logic back in 2011. You won’t find anything unusual in it: pixels, pixels, and again pixels. However, the atmosphere of this indie game and your unlimited opportunities in it can change your opinion forever.
Terraria – the 21st best-selling video game ever
So, what is Terraria? As it has been already mentioned, it is a sandbox (or open-world) game that is based on the action-adventure principle. Its gameplay is simple: build any constructions you want (from houses to bridges and statues), mine, explore a territory, and craft various things. Terraria has two modes: single-player and multiplayer using which you can play with your friends. The game had been initially launched only for Microsoft Windows but later its versions for other devices, including more operating systems, consoles, and smartphones, were developed as well.
It is important to say that Terraria is extremely popular in the modern gaming world. If to compare it to Minecraft, it will be obvious that this game is as trendy as its legendary competitor. At the same time, some players say that Terraria is even better than Minecraft in terms of fighting and equipment.
Approximately 30 million copies were sold after its launch and it got the status of the 21st best-selling game ever. It often enters the top three games on Steam when it comes to its releases. In addition to this, Terraria is very attractive for esports fans. Players frequently participate in various tournaments. You can find out more about esports events in our cybersport news.
