Converting a Pay-to-Play MMORPG to Free-to-Play is akin to resuscitating a dying individual with high voltage shock paddles. An MMO can go from DOA to alive and thriving within the time span of just a few months. A F2P medicine miracle if you will. Today, we have yet another survival/success story with TERA: Rising reporting over a half a million new users registered since the game moved to free-to-play on February 5th. It should be noted that these are figures from just the EU version and do not include NA.
Gameforge has released a few TERA F2P stats for you to digest:
* Around 1.5 million characters have been created since the game switched to F2P
* The Castanics are the most popular race with the Humans and High Elves shortly after.
* The Warrior enjoys the title of most popular class, followed by the Sorcerer and the Archer.
In the game’s next update which is scheduled for sometime this year, TERA will see new features added to its political system including the ability for guilds to enter into alliances with other guilds and vie for supremacy against others on their server. Are you enjoying TERA?
