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.
