En Masse Entertainment held their first of five planned closed beta tests for TERA last weekend and this week it’s Europe’s turn to get a shot at the action MMORPG. Frogster will be holding their first of five closed beta tests this weekend set to kick off tomorrow. The servers will remain up through February 19th. Fans can gain access to the beta by pre-ordering TERA. Pre-order customers will gain access to all closed beta phases, the open beta and the head start.

Ready, steady, go!

TERA’s first closed beta phase begins

Berlin, 16/02/2012: The first closed beta phase of TERA will be running this weekend. From the 17th to the 19th of February the servers will be online from 3 pm (CEST) until midnight each day for courageous adventurers to walk on the wild side in the world of TERA. It will be the first of five beta tests for all pre-order customers, last year’s beta participants, and the 1,000 selected winners of the early beta registration. Two character slots invite the participants to explore the races of TERA and to prove their skills in thrilling battles up to level 22. For the first time guilds can now fight each other on a PvP server that also offers an outlaw mission in the town Velika to all unfearful adventurers.

With the help of the weekend’s test, we were able to resolve the issues that caused the cancellation of the Sneak Peek event. Thanks to the overwhelming support and participation of the TERA community, all Closed Beta tests can run as planned.

Based on a subscription model, TERA is set to be released on May 3rd 2012. Ubisoft is managing the European retail distribution while Frogster is taking care of the digital distribution of the game in Europe. The pre-order version of the game is available in the official TERA pre-order shop:
