  • Dedicated Banner Menu: Effortlessly manage and access your damage-boosting banners without cluttering your inventory.
  • Speedy Roller Skates: Zoom across your world and grind on rails with these awesome new boots.
  • Freely Soaring Kites: Transform your kites into permanent, eye-catching decorations.

Terraria fans rejoice! The wait for update 1.4.5 continues, but the latest developer update reveals some exciting new features that will improve the quality of life in the beloved sandbox game.

While initially conceived as a minor polish pass following the substantial "Labor of Love" update in September 2022, Terraria 1.4.5 is shaping up to be a significant upgrade. This month's blog sheds light on a new inventory management system for banners and the addition of long-requested roller skates.

Banners, which boost damage against specific enemies, have always been a valuable tool, but it's also notorious for cluttering your inventory. Thankfully, 1.4.5 introduces a dedicated banner menu alongside the crafting list. Earned banners will automatically be deposited there, allowing for easy access and placement without overflowing your inventory.

However, the real star of the show might be the addition of roller skates. This new footwear promises a significant boost in movement speed, perfect for traversing long stretches of player-made platforms or blocks. But the fun doesn't stop there! Roller skates come with the ability to grind on rail tracks, a feature practically begging for community-created skate park challenge maps.

Rounding out the revealed additions this month is a small but appreciated change to kites. Previously, you had to hold them for them to fly. Now, you can attach their string to a ground post, transforming them into beautiful decorations that add a touch of whimsy to your world.

While the update's release date remains elusive, Terraria's head of business strategy assures fans that the team is diligently working on it. There's even a hint of a "special something" to be revealed next week!

With these improvements and more likely on the way, Terraria 1.4.5 is shaping up to be a delightful update for veterans and newcomers alike. The ability to quickly zip around on roller skates will undoubtedly open up new creative possibilities for base design and exploration.

Likewise, the dedicated banner menu streamlines a previously cumbersome aspect of inventory management. The update feels like a love letter to the Terraria community, and with a potential surprise reveal coming next week, the excitement continues to build.
