Following the recent launch of their closed-beta testing process, publisher En Masse Entertainment have announced
that TERA -- Bluehole Studio's PC MMO that recently hit in South Korea -- will launch in North America on May 1st 2012 and Europe on May 3rd.
When quizzed about Australian-specific details, En Masse told AusGamers that while there is currently no Aussie retail release currently planned, -- unlike some other recent regionally-restricted titles -- the game will still be available to Australians via download from their official website.
TERA is a new breed of online game that combines all the depth of a traditional MMO with the visceral gratification of an action game. In TERA, players must actively aim, dodge and block, as the game’s real-time combat system takes into account player position and skill, not stats alone.
Players begin by creating a character from seven races and eight classes as they join in an alliance to save the world from bloodthirsty armies of monsters who threaten to destroy the very gods who hold their world together. TERA also introduces a revolutionary political system in which players wield power in their province based on their in-game political prowess or player versus player combat skill.
