Terraria is the next Switch Online Game Trial in Europe

Terraria Switch Online Game Trial Europe

If you’re a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber in Europe, Terraria will be available to play for free as part of the next Switch Online Game Trial. As per usual, the Switch Online Game Trial for Terraria will be accessible for a week, in this case from January 26, 2022, until February 1, 2022. Subscribers will be able to head to the Nintendo eShop or quickly access the Switch Online hub from their home page to download the game.

Terraria debuted in 2011 for PC and has since received a cult following. The Nintendo Switch version of the game was released in June 2019, including all previous content updates and more. In Terraria, you explore a randomly generated 2D sandbox, while also building, mining, crafting, and defeating a variety of enemies. Earlier this month, Terraria for Nintendo Switch received its massive “Journey’s End” update, adding a lot of content to an already massive game and making this an apt time for a Game Trial. Journey’s End was released on PC in 2020, followed by a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release last year. The update was well-received by fans, with praise being directed to the abundance of new items, enemies, NPCs, and more.

If you’re in Europe and Terraria sounds like something you would enjoy, then you can give it a go next week on January 26. At the moment, it’s unknown whether or not American subscribers will be able to enjoy the Terraria Switch Online Game Trial. However, America recently received a Game Trial for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, so who knows what Nintendo has planned? Will you be giving Terraria a spin?
