It’s September, which means that the long-awaited Terraria 1.4.4 update Labor of Love is finally almost upon us. Terraria developer Re-Logic has long been known for claiming its updates for one of the best crafting games are the ‘final update,’ and Labor of Love follows on from the previous two such final updates – Journey’s End and Journey’s Actual End. Labor of Love was pitched primarily as a quality of life and balance update, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t new items – and plenty of the changes give more than enough reason to return to one of the best sandbox games on PC one more time.
We’ve compiled all the new additions and tweaks into one handy list for your perusal down below, but we’ll start off by detailing a few of the biggest changes you can expect in Terraria 1.4.4. First up, your Terraria inventory size is due to get a huge upgrade as the stack limit for most items in the game leaps from 999 to a massive 9999. A Void Bag rework causes the special sack to function as basically a second inventory that can be opened at will, and the addition of Terraria gear loadouts means you can switch between various equipment setups on the fly.
Meanwhile, fans sick of having to go through extensive preparation and maintenance to keep their Jungle from being destroyed by evil biome corruption will be overjoyed to know that the addition of Infected Mud Grass means that your Jungle biome will never be turned into dirt again, and a new Biome Sight potion will make picking out those pesky evil nodes and cleaning them up vastly more straightforward. One of the strongest Terraria endgame accessories is getting a buff too – although it’s left fans a little split on its usefulness.
