TERA is an MMORPG developed by Bluehole Studio and published in NA by En Masse Entertainment. The name TERA means The Exiled Realm of Arborea. The game boasts to have superior graphics, unique community and political systems, and action-oriented gameplay. Players will be able to impact the community through their actions and even command lands as its ruler. There will be 6 races available with Aman, Castanics, Baraka, High Elves, Popori and Humans. Players can also choose from one of eight classes with the
Lancer, Warrior, Berserker, Sorcerer, Priest, Elementalist, Slayer and Archer.
TERA puts a focus on what's referred to as "true action combat", which is more involving than traditional MMORPG gameplay. Rather than waiting for skills to queue up and go off, you'll be reacting in real time and using the game's aiming mechanic to execute and dodge attacks.
TERA launched on May 1st, 2012 in NA as a subscription title but relaunched as free-to-play on February 5th, 2013 as TERA: Rising.
