Re-Logic is teaming up with Engine Software to create an all new take on the Terraria experience that looks to meld various role-playing and strategy elements into the typical 2D side-scrolling sandbox world. Re-Logic note that this isn't Terraria 2, but rather a "novel take" on the original's elements.
Titled Terraria: Otherworld, Re-Logic is approaching gameplay in a new direction. Set in an alternate dimension within the Terraria universe, Terraria: Otherworld "places the player in a life-and-death struggle to restore a once-pristine world – now overrun by a malevolent force that has corrupted nature itself – to its original splendor."
The game will task players with forming a rag-tag band of survivors as they move across various worlds harnessing the power of an array of weaponry, magic, defenses and at times even the world itself. To help pique your interest Re-Logic has revealed an early alpha gameplay trailer, which you can check out below.
Terraria: Otherworld is in development for PC & Mac platforms, however PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are being considered but no decision has been made yet.
