Terraria may have gotten its final update, but it still has years of life ahead of it. The Journey’s End update, released on Saturday, added a monster list of new items and a super customizable new “Journey mode”, propelling the game to an all-time high number of players on Steam. After this update the Terraria developers plan to finally move on to a new project, nine years after its release. But they’re setting the game up to continue getting new features by adding the community-made mod loader to Steam.

You can download tModLoader for free on Steam, and Steam Workshop support will be added in the future to bring Terraria mods to Steam for the first time. Previously, mods have only been available from external modding sites, with tModLoader being a universally used tool. “Though fully-integrated official mod support is not something that is feasible within the Terraria codebase, tModLoader has served faithfully as that ‘bridge’ between the main game and the amazing library of player-created mods that exists for Terraria,” the Terraria devs wrote on Steam. “With this launch, modding has never been more visible or accessible for Terrarians.”
