TERA – Action meets MMO
TERA‘s impressive, highly detailed virtual world of triple-A quality awaits thousands of players. Completely developed using Unreal Engine 3, TERA broadly surpasses other current MMORPG titles with breathtaking 3D environments, thrilling graphics, and spectacular effects. The seamless architecture of the game world, including open dungeons and massive cities, guarantees a smooth and fluent gaming experience without the interruption and frustration of long loading times. TERA offers a vast range of character customization possibilities with six races and eight character classes to choose from.
TERA‘s dynamic real-time combat system engages players in battle considerably more actively than conventional MMORPGs. In the massive fantasy world of TERA, success in dodging and blocking enemy attacks is not solely determined by statistics as it is in rival titles. Rather, using the mouse and keyboard or a game controller, players actively control their character‟s movements. Thanks to sensitive collision detection, online adventurers in group combat actively keep their opponents at bay, for example using sword and shield. Teamwork is essential as players try to save their fragile home from the horrors that threaten its very existence. TERA is set to be released in 2011 and will be based on a subscription model.
TERA is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) set in a graphically stunning fantasy universe. TERA’s uniqueness revolves around its groundbreaking True Action Combat. This system allows the players to truly master their characters and to aim with no automatic targeting system, thus pushing the boundaries of the MMO genre. Players and press both warmly received TERA, praising its state of the art visuals and notable innovations such as its political system. TERA has been playable free of charge since February 2013 and is available for download at tera.gameforge.com.
