Does Terraria Support Cross-platform play in 2021?

Terraria is an action-packed adventure game where players can create, mine, and do whatever they want.

It has been a favourite of millions of players worldwide since its initial release in 2011.

This is because Terraria is available on most gaming platforms in 2021. 

You can get Terraria on Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, Mac and Linux, and mobile devices.

You can play with friends online using its multiplayer capability, but can you play Terraria with friends across different gaming platforms?

The good news is that Terraria is finally a cross-platform game in 2021.

In April 2021, Terraria finally allows cross-platform play between the PC and mobile versions of this game.

Now the two different Terraria versions can communicate with each other through a shared server list.

However, the bad news is that Terraria does not yet fully support cross-platform play between the console and PC versions.

Players on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch consoles still cannot play Terraria with players on Steam or Mobile devices.

So if you are playing Terraria on a PC, you cannot play this game with someone on a console.

Luckily, the developers of Terraria stated that they would consider making it happen when it is finally possible.

In their January updates, Terraria’s developer team has confirmed that crossplay support will soon come to Terraria.

The devs stated that they will attempt to bring cross-platform play to Terraria as soon as everyone is at Terraria version 1.4.1.

Not only crossplay, but the devs team also mentioned that cross-save ability is on the way too!

Let’s just hope the developers will not face that challenge and bring cross-platform play sooner to Terraria.

So here’s the bottom line:

Terraria finally allows cross-platform play between the PC version and the mobile version of this game in 2021.

Terraria, on the other hand, does not yet fully support cross-platform play between the console and PC versions, but this may change shortly.

We will update this post when there is an official announcement by the developers.

In the meantime, let us check out how to crossplay in Terraria for PC players and mobile device players.

How to Crossplay in Terraria between PC and Mobile?

Cross-platform play in Terraria is now possible after the developers update in April 2021!

The crossplay supports are only available for PC and mobile Terraria players.

To enable crossplay, we’ll need a server where PC and mobile users may meet.

In this example, we will be using the Penguin Games server. You can visit their website at Penguin Games.

Anyway, here’s how you play Terraria on PC and mobile.

First, ensure that your game on PC or Mobile is running the newest version.

Second, you must obtain the IP and port address for the crossplay server from Penguin Games.

Third, launch your game and select multiplayer mode.

Fourth, select the character you wish to play and choose the option to play online.

Fifth, enter the server’s IP address and port and then press the play button.

And just like that, you’re on a Terraria cross-platform server.

On this server, you can play Terraria together with mobile players and players on PC.
