Tera: Rising Gets Free to Play Date!

MMOBomb Staff Posted:

The official release date for the Tera: Rising content update and the free to play conversion is almost upon us! Both En Masse (US) and Gameforge (EU) have officially confirmed the magic date is February 5th.

In less than a week audiences will be able to jump into Tera free of charge and take advantage of new content that is being added. The Tera: Rising update adds a new multi level dungeon called the Crucible of Flame and also tosses in 3v3 PvP Battleground. No box purchase is required to jump into the action combat MMORPG, but a software purchase can grant you the "Founders" status which includes extra character slots and bank space.

Game content is not restricted for free to play players, but both publishers will continue to offer a subscription option that adds a faster dungeon cool down and daily consumables (as well as a few other perks) for players that want that extra pick me up while slaying. Item shop details also emerged; with players able to purchase typical boost items, potions, and name/appearance changes. In the future, the shop will also include exclusive mounts, weapon skins and clothing.

Will you be jumping in to Tera on February 5th? Let us know below!

no need to curse internet tuff guy.... but Trandill is correct its 25.8 GB (27,809,273,127 bytes) with current patch so 50 gigs is a "little" bit off

trust me I understand It seemed like it was 50 gigs the nature of that patcher made it seem as if you were downloading every mmo known to man @ 24kbps LOL but ya bad info on the 50 gig.

First time I played WoW thought: "A game like this, but with real time hack 'n slash combat would be epic".... aaaand few years later Tera was launched, and now for free!!. Already on a discovery account with a lvl 23 warrior and like it a lot!. Was playing Raiderz previosly but the free class customization is not as good as it sounds (at least for me). There are no "taunt" skills for tanking, and on an instance group it seems everyone is on its own, with healer getting a bad time. Also game content is a joke. Reached level cap and seems I only played a demo. So hooked to Tera and recomend every one else do the same.

I am very skeptical on how this is going to work, if you still want to pay the $15 a month you get a daily boost to exp, gold, and rep. That bonus is a 100% increase, I am furious about that. I mean come on a 100% increase to gold from BOTH kills and quests, f** off publishers, seriously. It's going to imbalance the economy so much, especially with the new enchanting system changes. Just sounds like they are trying to money grub as much as they can. And this is coming from a guy who bought the collectors edition before release and payed for 3 months of game time.

Going to be fun like the combat, make sure you do not join the PvP server .... I thought that i could not get ganked because i was a "discovery" edition but nope you can at lvl 12 when you move to the second zone you will see hundreds of lvl 60's standing at the safe zone wall (kinda reminds me of diablo 2) waiting for the nooobs to walk out. sad thing is you would think moving chan / questing in the bushes with camera turned to the road would help no not in the least seems the players that are mad that their publisher went f2p feel cheated and therefor are going to gank any new member with extreme hate. EVERYthing is the same about the game on the pve server besides no ganking we wont call you a carebear there promise Looking forward to the fifth.

Game is just awesome. Quests are plain "go there, kill this number of that mob", but fighting is epic. BAM fights and dungeons are great. I have not reached a CAP level toon yet (but I am close enough), and I was hearing complaints for significant lag in the first raid though... that thas was back in August and I keep my hopes high that things might have improved since. Can't wait!!!

LAST! (because being mounted or first on the internet is like winning the special Olympics).

So any ways, Yeah, this whole "founders" verbage is sucha marketing scam. May the zombie mush brains enjoy the verbage and think they sound "in the cool" as they sling around this little barf filled word. May all the others take head and know supporting your time and potential cash will only fuk u over as they may or may not implement lock boxes (any one seeing the PWE pattern in all publishers::: Lock boxes...founders...keys...P2W or grind until your 80)...PASS, pass, anddddddddddddddddddddddddd PASS
