For those who have yet to try TERA, En Masse Entertainment has announced you can play the game for free through a seven-day trial. Once the trial is downloaded, you’ll be able to create up to eight characters with a level cap of 23. There’s also a demo available with no download needed. Blue Hole Studios, the developer, has also announced a few interesting stats for the MMO since its release: over 22 million signature monsters have been killed; over 227 million miles have been traveled, and players average around 4.5 hours of playtime per day. Head on over to the official website to try the game out. Thanks, AusGamers.

Blue Hole Studios has patched the North American and European versions of TERA. Both patches contain a fix to the MMO’s political system, allowing guild leaders who are level 50 to run for office, with election results posted on May 23. The patch on the European end also adds a slider in the options menu that allows you to display blood effects when slaying monsters. Patch notes for the US are here, and patch notes for Europe are here.

En Masse and Blue Hole Studios has released the fourth installment in its TERA’s race video series, and this time the focus is on the High Elves. Apparently, the race has a motto: “We believe. We remember.” Sounds slightly sinister, doesn’t it? Maybe it’s just us. The video shows a bevy of in-game footage, along with a few slow-mo battle moves so you can get a better idea of the prowess of the race. It’s also rather pretty. TERA goes live on May 1 and head start information can be found through here. The final closed beta weekend begins today.

Those who have tried to pre-order the Collectors Edition of TERA have found that the game is not available for pre-order, thus putting a damper on hopes of guaranteed access to the game’s closed beta. En Masse has said the codes were “only recently conveyed to retailers,” is sorry about the issue, and is looking into a fix now. The firm said it is communicating directly with the retailers to see whether there’s “anything we can do to speed the process” up and the codes distributed. It will also provide updates as to when the pre-order availability of the physical collector’s edition is available, and at which retailers. Seems like the safest route for the time being, would be to purchase the Collector’s Edition digitally, if you want in the beta that badly. A sneak peek beta is currently going on now, and the first of five closed beta tests start February 17 run every weekend until April 15. The open beta starts on April 19 and the game releases in May.
