Re-Logic and Engine Software have announced a joint development venture for the development of the next progression in the open world/sandbox arena, Terraria: Otherworld. Expanding upon the immensely popular action-sandbox title Terraria, exploring what might have been, and approaching gameplay in a new direction; Terraria: Otherworld represents a novel take on the Terraria experience.
Andrew “Redigit” Spinks, CEO of Re-Logic, noted that this has been a long-standing interest:
“I’ve always wondered what other directions the Terraria concept could take – say a different gameplay focus or with a much larger budget behind it. Terraria: Otherworld gives us the chance to play out those scenarios all at once. I cannot wait to see how it all turns out in the end, and I think all of our fans will be extremely pleased with the final result.”
Ruud van de Moosdijk, Vice President of Development at Engine Software, added:
“We are very excited about finally announcing Terraria: Otherworld. It is a different approach to a much loved game which is exciting and scary at the same time, but I am glad we can now share it with everyone. We hope to share a lot more information and insight into the game and its development in the coming time and can’t wait to hear back what people think.”
Re-Logic has released an announcement teaser trailer for Terraria: Otherworld that can be viewed below.
