YouTube star Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has started a Terraria playthrough for his channel following the success of his recent Minecraft series.

The Swedish content creator has built a massive following of over 102 million subscribers on YouTube, entertaining fans with hilarious gaming playthroughs such as his recent Minecraft series.

However, after defeating the Ender Dragon and completing many additional challenges in his Minecraft playthrough, the YouTuber began to set his sights on what was next for his channel.

PewDiePie, YouTubePewDiePie’s gaming playthroughs, such as his Minecraft series, often receive massive support from fans.

PewDiePie had many successful months with his popular Minecraft videos and has now picked up a new sandbox game called Terraria after there was demand from his subscribers to try it out.

Terraria has been around since 2011 and much like Minecraft, it offers players limitless options on what they want to make of their world when it comes to building and exploring the landscape.

Before starting his playthrough, PewDiePie claimed that he had little knowledge of what the game entailed and that he would have to rely on all of his Minecraft experience to help him progress.

“I have basically no knowledge of Terraria just so we’re clear here,” PewDiePie admitted, after loading into the game. “I’m not a veteran but I do know Minecraft and I know chopping down trees is the way to go.”

Although the two sandbox games share their similarities, one of the most noticeable changes the YouTube star will have to put up with is the switch from a 3D world to the classic 2D landscape of Terraria.

With the recent surge of players and content creators returning to Minecraft following his video releases, similar could be seen with his ventures on Terraria as it may inspire his viewers to create their own 2d world on the popular sandbox game.

The YouTube star is continuing to grow his massive following on the video-sharing platform and is looking to hit his next milestone of 110 million subscribers in good time by continuing his streak of regular uploads.

Despite his incredible social media presence, PewDiePie has also claimed that being internet famous is not what many make it out to be, even describing it as “useless” in certain cases.

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
