Can PC terraria play with Switch terraria, if they are on the same version



  • I want to play Terraria with some friends on console, but the newest Steam version is four updates away from the newest console version. I assume this makes us incompatible, how should I go about this? Should I downgrade my client version, or is 1.4.3.2 compatible with 1.4.3.6?



  • From what I can tell, Android/iOS are the only cross platform the game supports. There also seems to be conflicting results about whether PC and Mobile can play together (see below).

    We have https://gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/361177/terraria-desktop-and-ps4-cross-platform post about PS4 (console) and PC playing together, and the answer is no.

    The https://terraria.fandom.com/wiki/Multiplayer#Notes says

    Mobile and Desktop players can cross-play together if both downgrade to 1.4.0.5.

    But this isn't verified. The wiki then also states:

    Users of different platforms (Desktop version / PlayStation / Xbox One / Xbox 360 / Mobile version / Windows Phone) cannot play multiplayer games together. Only Android and iOS users can play cross-platform with each other.

    I then found https://gameinstants.com/is-terraria-cross-platform/#Is_Terraria_Cross-platform_Xbox_PC that lists all the cross platform support, and everything is a no except for Mobile and PC and Android/iOS. For mobile and PC, it states that they need to be running the same game version.

    To summarize:

    • Desktop might be able to play with Mobile players (conflicting sources)
    • Android and iOS can play with one another
    • Consoles are not cross platform enabled
      • A exception to this is PS4 and PS5 being "cross generational"
