Late last year, Terraria developer Re-Logic announced that the open-world sandbox game would be getting Steam Workshop support, but declined to say when it would arrive. It turns out, that day is today – with its latest patch, the Steam version of Terraria natively supports the Steam Workshop, allowing players to share worlds, resource packs, and more in one convenient place.
“That’s right – at long last, we are able to provide an easy-to-use system and location for Terrarians everywhere to showcase their creative energies in all new ways,” Re-Logic writes in the update on Steam. And while it’s true the new Workshop support allows new ways to share game modifications, there’s an important proviso.
First though, let’s look at the stuff you can share right away. Terraria’s Steam Workshop page supports world uploads, so you can easily share your favourite (or most devious) maps you’ve discovered or built in the game. You can also share resource packs, which include new textures, music, or translations of the in-game text.
