Speaking with Gamasutra at this year's E3 event, TERA Executive Producer Brian Knox discussed many of the elements that make TERA stand out from a market saturated in MMORPGs. TERA's fast-paced action combat is touted as one of the game's biggest features, but other elements such as the political system, which we had the chance to preview at E3 2011, will allow players who climb the ranks of the political ladder through popular elections and combat to exercise a lot of control over their territory ranging from changes in the tax rate to imprisoning enemy players.
I think it'll be really interesting, especially on the popular vote side, to see what players do to get their name out there. What are the cool tricks, or gimmicks, or whatever it is that they decide will get them voted in?
As for the NA release, no solid date has been announced as of yet, but the team is aiming for tentative launch date later this year. You can check out the full interview with Brian Knox at Gamasutra.
