Terraria: Otherworld Slips Into 2016, New Gameplay Shows Grappling Hook Action

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen progress from developer Re-Logic and their upcoming 2D sandbox successor, Terraria: Otherworld, however a new video update and developer post gives us some insight to the game’s milestones.

Featured above, the new video shows off the latest featured to be added – grappling hooks. They work as expected – however there’s also a slight teaser for the return of the crimson biome, similar to the corruption, if not only a bit more difficult in comparison.

In our previous report, we expected the game to ship before the end of this year – as it was announced for a 2015 release. That’s obviously not happening, and Re-Logic explained why the game “is not ready yet” over on their official forums:

As we laid out in the beginning, we will only launch a game when we feel it meets our standards as a finished product. Terraria: Otherworld hasn’t reached that point yet, though very strong progress has been made. The team continues and will continue to work hard in the months ahead to get T: OW to a place where we will be proud to release it to you and it will be worthy of your support and expectations. All we will say at this point is that our goal is to get this done and in your hands during 2016, but we will provide further information and spoilers as we move forward.

Finally, it’s also worth mentioning¬†that Terraria: Otherworld is also coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while previously the console versions were only under consideration.
