En Masse Entertainment has today revealed that their recent action MMO TERA will be transitioning to a free-to-play model in February, allowing players to access the full game without a subscription. The change will see standard free players able to access the entire game with no level cap or content restrictions, however those looking to upgrade their status can do so through additional payments.
With TERA: Rising, we created a fresh, action-oriented play style that is centered around allowing players to take control of their actions on the battlefield,” said Chris Lee, CEO of En Masse Entertainment. “We feel the time has come to offer the same level of control in how they invest in the world of TERA, so we are offering a tiered approach that includes a compelling free option, to accessing the game.”
En Masse Entertainment has also announced that new content will be making its way to the game in celebration of the transition, which will include a wave-based dungeon and a PvP battleground map.
The multi-stage Crucible of Flame dungeon challenges players with a series of epic, high-level battles culminating with a new boss fight against the immense Cyclops. This dungeon offers varying rewards based on performance. Additionally, more competitive players can take off in Champions’ Skyring, an all-new three-versus-three PvP battleground with some of TERA’s best PvP gear at stake.
