This isn’t the end…
I’m very much in the camp that supports mods. I think they’re excellent and they are part of what makes gaming so incredibly wonderful. Modding gives players a chance to try their hand at game design by tweaking things instead of building them from the ground up, which has led to some absolutely classic games too. On top of that, modding allows a game to live on well beyond its standard lifespan, which is much better for people who can’t afford to buy games regularly and also helps to keep communities going for far longer.
The only thing that improves modding is when a game, and therefore the team behind it, embraces modding completely. It’s one of the things that keeps Divinity: Original Sin 2 at the top of my Steam list. So, I’m incredibly excited to see that tModLoader is being released alongside the Terraria Journey’s End update as DLC. It shows that modding is likely to be the future of the game, which is a little bit sad, but it could mean that we’re more likely to see a Terraria 2 at some point as well.
It’s just a really exciting time to be a Terraria fan, which is nearly always the case thanks to how good the game is, but this fresh injection of content, in both the official and unofficial capacity, is sure to breathe a lot of new life into the game, and also bring in a wave of new and returning players. It’s time to dig deep and see if we can’t find all of the new content then, how exciting!
