TERA, the fantasy MMO from Bluehole Studio, will end up a free-to-play game generally known as TERA: Rising later in North America and Europe.
Bluehole will mark the launch of TERA: Rising that has a delivery of latest content, for example the wave-based Crucible of Tera Items Flame dungeon (first three screenshots above) as well as a PvP arena the Champions' Skyring (last three screenshots above).
According to Brian Knox, executive producer at En Masse Entertainment, the game's North American publisher, the corporation decided to make TERA free-to-play so as to widen the game's potential audience also, since "the MMO market is different, as well as the better." Gameforge publishes TERA in Europe. TERA originally launched in North America and Europe on Windows PC in May 2012.
Free players won't come upon any level cap, high won't be any restrictions around the content they're able to access or even the amount of time they will spend playing. They will be on a two characters per server, along with their Tera XBOX Items transactions will likely be subject to a number of taxes. "You're finding the real TERA, not some watered-down trial version," said Knox. The developers are adding an in-game store where players can get items for example costumes, mounts, consumables and further character slots.
