Terraria splitscreen
When Terraria hits PSN and XBLA this month, it will feature a host of multiplayer capabilities, including an immediate invite system, where a host can gather up to seven friends for an online co-op or competitive game. Terraria on consoles supports four-player split-screen co-op, eight-player online multiplayer, and four-on-four split-screen.

Check out the sweet split-screen action in the gallery below, and sharpen those spades. It's going to be a dirt-based bloodbath.

With only a matter of weeks before the expected release date for Terraria on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, 505 Games have confirmed the online multiplayer functions for the digital title.

Utilising an immediate invite system, from within their existing game hosts can invite up to 7 others players into the game for co-operative or competitive play; all at the press of a button.

Multiplayer supports not only 8 players online but also 4 player local split screen as well as 4 vs 4 split screen via Xbox Live and Playstation Network.
