Watch us take on gigantic Terraria bossesin multiplayer

Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game or two on Twitch for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. It's like a live podcast, only you also get to watch a game while chatting with our awesome readers and viewers!

Tonight at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific, 2am GMT), we'll be playing Terraria from 505 Games and Re-Logic. Terraria is a 2D platformer with creative and survival elements, much like Minecraft. To make things even better, we have a whopping 35 Terraria codes to give away for Xbox One, PlayStation, and Steam!

Update: The stream has ended. Continue reading to watch the abridged replay in YouTube format and see the list of contest winners!


Do the blocky 3D worlds of Minecraft rub you the wrong way? Then try Terraria, the 2D platforming survival game. At the start, you'll create your own male or female custom character. Then it's time to generate a new world or load up a saved one.

Terraria has many familiar mechanics like exploration, mining and building things. The building works a bit differently in 2D, but players can still create impressive structures. Don't mistake this for Minecraft, however. Terraria has a much greater emphasis on combat and platforming. Find the right gear and you can even gain unique abilities like super jumps and turning into a werewolf.

Naturally, games of this type are more fun with friends. Terraria supports 8-players online or 4-player split-screen on Xbox One.

Tune in tonight to watch me play online multiplayer and maybe win a copy of your own!

How to watch Twitch live streams

What's the best way to experience Twitch? The Twitch website on your PC or Mac web browser. If you don't have or prefer not to use a computer, you can get the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Xbox 360 Twitch apps and watch from the comfort of your couch. Android and iOS both have official and unofficial Twitch apps to choose from as well.

On Windows Phone, you'll have to grab an unofficial app. There are several to choose from, each with different strengths and weaknesses. Only one app lets you search directly for our channel, however. If you use the others, you'll have to find and follow us from a web browser first. Read the roundup to learn more!

  • I should be coming tonight then! -Jamaican
  • Unrelated : Who else won DiveKick on last week's stream? That game's online is soo much dead. Looking for a second player to hunt the online achievements with. Quick achievements so wouldn't take that much time. If you do, just hit me up and we can do tonight. GT: Kenzibit
  • Sure! How many hours until it starts?
  • 11 hours from now. You can use a time zone converter to calculate if needed.
  • 2am?! I'll try but I'll be 90% asleep by then. Haha
  • Sounds fun. I'd play with you if I had the time. I have great gear and weapons. I've killed all bosses except Frost Moon boss. Terraria is freaking awesome!!
  • You should only give out Xbox One codes. I thought it's a Windows Community. You should give the most chances to your fans as you can. It's like iMore would giveaway Windows phones. You even have 2 PlayStation Platforms and only one Xbox platform. Steam should be there because it' Windoes but stop givimg out PlayStation codes
  • We realize that not all of our readers own Xbox Ones, so we give out codes for other platforms as well. If publishers give us codes for X system, then we'll give out those codes. Complaining about the prizes we give out is not constructive.
  • Why? Thousands of people own PS4s as well as Windows Phones (pretty sure there are a couple o' hundred on WC alone), so don't they deserve a chance to win a free game? Plus, your ideology sounds like: "I don't own an iPhone or an Apple product so I shall never read iMore." smh.
  • dude complaining about giveaways is really shitty. fanboyism is even shittier...
  • I have it for windows phone and of course is an Xbox title and the multiplayer runs through live servers. Does the multiplayer work cross platform with Xbox one? I haven't been able to check because I don't have any friends that play the game.
  • No, the multiplayer is not cross-platform. Would be neat but each version is quite different from the others.
  • The multiplayer on phone requires both players to be on the same network unfortunately
  • I'll be back later for this threes is quite fun to play thanks 505 games
  • As usual, I'll be there.
  • terraria is great, i own the xbox one, xbox 360 (by games with gold) and windows phone version... terraria doesn't have cross platform because each one have some exclusives like new bosses, armors.... love this game, i will try the content for the pc version, but i also would like to join the paul's game on xbox one :) gt:DoutorRicardo
  • I'll be there, unless I don't wake up from my sleep anymore =p
  • That's dark. I hope you wake up
  • I'll think it as a good thing, at least don't have to suffer b4 going, remain in endless dream ~~~
  • And I'll be there to entertain everyone
  • I hope I can get some time off work to watch the stream tonight!
  • good thing my sleep cycle is already totally destroyed, so 3 am is nothing ;) will definitely be there! always good times!
  • Glad you made it!
  • Soooo Excited!  I've been wanting to get this on Xbox One for some time! Hopefully I can win one tonight.  :)  Thank you windows central team!
  • Good luck guys. I tend to pick the video up on youtube after the stream. Seeing all the different games is great. Enjoyed Dragon Age, watched some bits earlier today.
  • I'll be there. I have not played this game.
  • People I was thinking. If you don't have an Xbox yet but plan to get one. You can redeem codes on This way you can win a game and play it when you get your xboxone.
  • Ssshhhhh :P
  • Dang, I won't be able to make the stream. I've put tons of hours into the Steam version I would love the chance to win it for Xbox or Vita. So bummed.
  • That's too bad. Hope you can make it to next week's stream. :)
  • Karl, I haven't done that yet. I stink at Threes but I do want to play it a little more so we can give it a review.
  • May try and make it even though I don't much care for the game (yet still somehow have it on 360 and WP) but I'm running on about 2 hours sleep the last two days, so may end up passing out beforehand. If I don't make it, hope everyone has a great time though.
  • Awesome stream as always Paul, Tyler and chat! And a big thank you to 505 Games for providing so many codes for the giveaway, truly generous!
  • I missed it unfortunatly I was preocupied longer then I expected. I will be puchaseing this game eventualy now. Was hopeing to win a copy. Will have to watch the replay now..
  • Yay I won a vita code!!!
  • So did I. I was the thatdudeguyman...
  • Ohh, cool that you made it! Different usernames are confusing. ;) Congrats on the wins, guys!
