TERA goes free-to-play in Europe as TERA: Rising

Tuesday, 5th February 2013 13:48 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

TERA is now free-to-play in Europe, En Masse and Gamefroge have announced.

Launched as TERA: Rising, the new payment model comes with a new dungeon, Crucible of Flame, and the Champions’ Skyring 3 vs 3 arena.

The Crucible of Flame pits players against monsters and bosses at various difficulty levels for ranked dominance, and a brand-new boss monster – the Cyclops is ready to be fought in the area. The dungeon also conatins mini-games.

In the Champions’ Skyring, winners of 3 vs 3 battles will be rewarded with Killing Spree Credits, which can be used to obtain special PvP equipment. Top ranked players will also receive a powerful a new skill, and a spectator mode has been added.

Payment models come in two flavors: Free Users and Veterans. Free Users are granted full access to all of the game content while Veteran status is reserved for those who purchased TERA before the free-to-play switch, therefore offering certain “advantages in terms of convenience.” It is also possible to join the TERA Club which comes with a special mount, a daily selection of boosts and various scrolls, and more.

A launch trailer is below along with some new screens.

    And yet Europeans with sufficiently decent connections and the mind to ignore minor latency issues are better off playing in NA servers. Rising did attempt to bring EU up to speed, but generally not only is EU almost always behind build-wise, the cash shop is at this moment outrageously overpriced for EU players.

    Gameforge? Yeah no thanks.
    Those guys utterly screwed up Aion by delivering patches about 6 months late and with half the content missing. Not to mention that the servers have more bots than players.
    Oh yeah, the account pages for managing payments still lack HTTPS as well.

    Stay far far away from those clowns.
