"Terraria: Journey's End", the fourth and final major update of Terraria, is currently under development. While originally announced to be released in 2019,[discord 1] it is now currently planned to be released on Terraria's 9th birthday, May 16, 2020.[forums 1] Until June 10, 2019, it was announced to be released as 1.3.6.

It will include a re-visit of all elements of Terraria. Things that may have felt outdated or obsolete due to the introduction of newer content will be renewed and new elements will be included in order to "flesh out the overall experience", including over 1000 new items.[forums 2][forums 3]

On the official Terraria Discord server, Cenx mentioned that 1.4 will have "a form of creative mode". This mode "won't just give you everything. It will all need to be earned", unlike traditional creative modes in other games.[discord 2] This was later confirmed to be Journey mode.

On May 14, 2020 the changelog for 1.4 was posted to the Terraria forums.

1.4 trailer from E3 2019, posted on June 10, 2019.

Items

NPCs

An NPC explaining to a player how their happiness can be increased.
  • NPCs now group into towns if there are three or more living in close proximity.[forums 18]
    • Towns cause reduced enemy spawning save for invasions, much like current NPC housing. However, towns also have custom music that plays while the player is in one.
    • NPCs will now also have happiness based on the size of their house, whether they like their neighbors, and if they are located in preferred biomes. Furniture and aesthetics "do not directly affect" NPC Happiness.
      • NPCs will adjust shop prices based on how happy that NPC is.
      • If an NPC is happy enough, they reward the player with a Pylon for the biome they are living in.
      • NPCs will give hints for how to make them more happy, and will have a new dialogue option for this function.
  • Two new town NPCs:
  • Several new Blood Moon enemies.[forums 23][youtube 1].
    • One enemy resembles a zombified Merfolk, one appears to be a fish-like bloody creature with a large eye, one appears as a flying, blood-red squid shooting projectiles and a large eel with black eyes.
    • Another enemy resembles a red, anthropomorphic goblin shark.
    • Fishing during a Blood Moon will summon a new miniboss[discord 24] called "Blood Nautilus", which is presumably Hardmode-exclusive.[discord 25][youtube 1]
  • Two new bosses, of which have not been revealed yet.[forums 5]
  • Several new critters:
  • New smaller variants of Antlions.[youtube 1]
  • A new female Hardmode boss fought in The Hallow[discord 27], described as "a beautiful bullet hell" by Cenx on Discord.[forums 25]
  • Cat and dog NPCs, with the ability to pet them.[forums 26]
  • A pudgy-looking bunny pet NPC.[youtube 6]
    • What appeared to be a bunny-shaped hat in a tweet from March 2020 is actually the same pet, who can sit on the player’s head.[tweets 12]
  • A new enemy named the "Wandering Eye Fish", most likely the one-eyed, fish-like Blood Moon enemy teased in the bestiary.[tweets 18]
  • Several bosses have been rebalanced.[forums 3]
  • During a Windy Day, Slimes occasionally spawn with balloons, allowing them drift with the wind and hover to reach the player. The balloon appears to be able to be popped with any amount of damage, and doing so will cause the slime to drop to the ground. Balloons come in a variety of colors, such as red, yellow, white, and blue.[youtube 3]
  • Possibility of a new creature called "Space Whale". [discord 28]
  • A new variant of a Zombie, wearing a brown tunic and cap and carrying a torch.[forums 22]
  • Armed Zombies can now carry and drop Torches.[youtube 5]
  • A friendly Green Fairy that can guide the player toward treasures.[youtube 7]
  • A Gnome found underground that appears to be an enemy. It has 50 health in Expert mode and moves very fast. Its Bestiary ID is 111.[youtube 7]

Gameplay

  • Journey mode. It is a slightly easier version of the game, but also gives players the option to duplicate items and control the difficulty, spawn rates, time and weather.[forums 1][youtube 3][forums 19]
    • Only works when a Journey mode character is used with a Journey mode world.
    • The player starts with an Iron Shortsword, Iron Pickaxe, Iron Axe, Iron Hammer, Finch Staff, 100 Torches, 100 Rope, a Magic Mirror and Fledgling Wings.
    • Players will have access to infinite numbers of any items that they "research", (called "duplication" by the game) and each item has a specified amount that must be researched before duplicated. Items such as torches and rope require a stack of 100 to be duplicated, while tools and weapons often require 1.
    • The Power Menu holds a list of options unique to Journey mode that allow players to customize how they play, duplicate and research items, change time and weather, and more.
      • The Duplication Menu is where all researched items can be duplicated to the player's desire. Items here are separated into seven categories, appearing to be Weapons, Armor, Blocks, Furniture, Accessories, Consumables, and Other. The menu also allows players to search for items as well.
      • The Research Menu is where items can be researched so they can be duplicated. The menu will list how many items the player needs to research the item, and once acquired, the player can press "Research" to add the item to the Duplication Menu.
      • The Time Menu is where players can edit how time flows. The options from top to bottom appear to be: Freeze Time, Change Time to Morning, Change Time to Noon, Change Time to Dusk, Change Time to Night, and a time speed option, which ranges from x1 to x20.
      • The Weather Menu is where the player can edit the weather. Each option holds a slider which controls the intensity of that aspect of the weather. The first "Wind Control Slider" controls Wind direction, from East to West. The third "Rain Control Slider" controls the intensity of the rain from Clear Sky to Monsoon. The second option shows a gust of wind, and the fourth option shows a rain cloud, but it is currently unknown what either of these options do.
      • The Godmode option enables and disables Godmode. Godmode will render the player invulnerable to any damage so long as the option is active.
      • The Increased/Normal Placement Range option allows the player to place blocks farther than normal on the screen. It is unknown if this allows unlimited placing range.
      • The Infection Spread option allows players to enable and disable biome spreading.
      • The Enemy Difficulty Slider option allows players to change the difficulty of the game from the 0.5x difficulty of Journey Mode to the x3.0 difficulty of Master Mode.
      • The final option allows players to increase the maximum amount of enemies on screen, ranging from "Disabled" to x10.
  • Master mode, a setting which increases the difficulty of the game even further than Expert mode.[forums 2] It multiplies the difficulty of enemies by 3 and features two exclusive drops per boss, which are neither weapons nor accessories.[discord 29][discord 30] Master Mode will also add one extra accessory slot to the character.[tweets 19]
  • New wind mechanics and related additions:
  • New thunderstorm event.[youtube 1]
  • Lava fishing will be expanded, with new lava critters that spawn in the underworld and can be used as bait, as well as new lava fishing drops, and the ability to fish in lava before hardmode.
  • New Windy Day event which has stronger wind effects, unique enemies such as slimes on balloons, and new background elements.
  • The Bestiary, an in-game, filter-able encyclopedia that shows information about NPCs.[forums 22]
    • It includes basic statistics like health, damage, defense and knockback, but also advanced information like dropped items. Furthermore, it displays a short descriptive or anecdotal treatise about the enemy.[forums 2][forums 22]
    • The rarity of the NPC is displayed with a 0-5 star system.
    • More information about each NPC is revealed once more are killed (or, if a Town NPC, talked to). Before encountering it, no info is shown and its respective entry is replaced by a question mark icon.
    • The Bestiary can be sorted by Bestiary ID, Name, Attack, Defense, Coins, HP and Rarity, and multiple filters can be used at once.
    • At the bottom of the Bestiary is a bar that fills as the Bestiary is completed, allowing players to easily track 100% completion.
  • New elements in the inventory:[youtube 1]
    • An achievement suggestion feature above the coins and ammo slots.
    • Two buttons to the left of the trash can, resembling a book and a speech bubble (presumably related to the bestiary and the usage of emotes, respectively). They were later moved to the right of the trash can, with the speech bubble redesigned as a smiley face.[youtube 3]
  • A new mechanic called "Block Swap". Similar to the "Quick Wall Swap" feature, this feature grants the ability to replace blocks based on the highest pickaxe power of a pickaxe in the player's inventory without requiring to mine them first. This also includes furniture like chests, which do not need to be emptied prior to being replaced.[tweets 22][forums 29]
  • Golf, a new minigame-type of mechanic, including related items like putters, balls, and holes. It includes a score system, with scores announced in status messages. Additionally, the camera moves with the ball after striking.[forums 2]
  • Improved Smart Cursor for digging in multiplayer.[tweets 23]
  • Water Candles and Peace Candles can be toggled via Wires.[tweets 24]
  • The Beach Ball is now susceptible to projectiles.[forums 30]
  • Mannequins can now utilize dyes and accessories.[forums 31]
  • Ability to sit down on a chair, which was done by Yoraiz0r and previously thought to be infeasible.[tweets 6][tweets 25]
  • The ability to lie in beds. [tweets 15]
  • Ability to place plated food.[tweets 6]
  • Explosive Bunnies can now also be placed and walk around (after landing, if fired) and explode upon contact with an enemy.[discord 5]
  • The effect of the Ruler can be controlled by a UI setting instead of an item.[discord 5]
  • Players can use formerly NPC-only emotes.[tweets 26]
  • All Cloud-type blocks will negate fall damage.[tweets 27]
  • Torches, metal bars, and Glowsticks can now be stacked up to 999 and Sticky Bombs can be stacked up to 99.[tweets 28]
  • Flying mounts can fly through platforms smoothly.[tweets 29]
  • Biome Crates are now guaranteed to drop a chest item, instead of the current 1 in 6 chance.[tweets 30]
  • Unknown changes to the Dungeon, making players tend to spend more time there.[forums 7]
  • Throwing damage type has been removed and merged into the ranged class.[discord 31]
  • A new buff which encourages players to place torches related to the current biome.[discord 32]
  • The ability to place Tombstones on flat-surface furniture items like Dressers.[forums 7]
  • Eye and skin color can be changed at a dresser.[forums 7]
  • The Titan Glove and its derivatives have been changed to enable autoswing for all melee weapons.[discord 33][forums 5]
  • Life Crystals can be obtained from opening Golden Crates.[discord 34]
  • A new buff, the icon of which displays a four-leaf clover.[youtube 1] This usually symbolizes luck.
  • Placing many gravestones turns the area into a graveyard mini-biome with corresponding exclusive items, vanity, and atmosphere.[youtube 1]
  • When the player dies, a timer appears to show the player how much time they have left until they respawn.[youtube 1]
  • Heavily revamped wings balancing.[discord 35]
  • Hitting the trunk of a tree with an axe will occasionally cause various things to fall out of the leaves at the top. These include various critters, wood, acorns, and occasionally foods such as lemons.[youtube 5]
  • The Basilisk Mount can now double jump.[discord 36]
