Is Terraria Cross Platform Or Crossplay? Terraria is a 2D action-adventure sandbox game available for PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android platforms. Although all these platforms support Terraria simultaneously, unfortunately its cross-platform capabilities do not yet permit players on all these devices to interact together in play.
However, there are exceptions. Terraria players on iOS and Android devices can play together while members of a particular console family (for instance Xbox One and Series X/S) may also team up. Furthermore, mods exist for PC Terraria which enable cross-play.

Why is Terraria not fully cross-platform?
Terraria may not be fully cross-platform for several reasons. One is its development by a small team; therefore it can be challenging to implement cross-play support on all available platforms simultaneously. Another reason could be technical challenges when trying to implement cross-play for games with many features and mechanics such as Terraria.
Are there any plans to make Terraria fully cross-platform?
Re-Logic, the developer of Terraria, announced in 2023 that cross-play would be implemented at some point; however, it wasn’t guaranteed. While no specific timeline had been provided by Re-Logic for when this might take place, they remain committed to making it happen.
What can I do if I want to play Terraria with friends on different platforms?
If you want to play Terraria across different platforms with your friends, there are a few strategies you can employ. One option is using mods for PC version of Terraria; there are some available which enable cross-play. Note however, these mods are unofficially supported by Re-Logic.
Another option for cross-play is joining a server that supports cross-play. There are third-party servers which enable players from different platforms to coexist on one server; however, be wary that these may be less stable than official servers and lack all features.
Finally, another way of playing Terraria with multiple platforms simultaneously would be convincing your friends to purchase the game on one platform as yourself. While this approach might be the simplest and least costly way to do it, you might also incur higher expenses when doing this.
Terraria may not yet offer complete cross-platform playability, but there are a few things you can do to play with friends on different platforms. Re-Logic has stated they are working on cross-play support; therefore it may become possible for full cross-platform functionality in the near future.
