With the switch to free-to-play, previous and future TERA players have the chance to play one of the most critically acclaimed massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) of the last few years for free. But that’s not all: just in time for the launch, the world of Arborea has been enhanced with additional content. This includes a new dungeon as well as a player versus player (PvP) arena offering experienced adventurers numerous new challenges and rewards.
TERA‘s free-to-play model will include two standard account types: the Free User and the Veteran. Free Users receive full access to the entire videogame content – this includes, for example, the races, classes, instances, equipment items or players-versus-player content. Veteran status is reserved for players who purchased TERA before the switch to free-to-play and offers advantages that Free Users do not receive.
Everyone has access to the ‘TERA Club’: amongst other things, players receive a special mount, a daily selection of boosts as well as different types of scrolls here. These can, for example, increase experience points and the amount of gold gained or can summon merchants, crystal merchants or the banker. The monthly subscription fee of €12.95 for the TERA Club is the same price as the previous subscription. If you subscribe to a three-month membership, the fee is reduced to €11.65 and twelve months reduces it to €9.99 a month.
Aside from the aforementioned boost items, the shop will include recovery, mana and stamina potions for character development. Service items are also available for purchase, with which players can change the name or appearance of their hero. In future, the shop will continue to be filled with exclusive mounts, weapon skins and clothing.
With another update due to appear later on in the year, TERA‘s political system will also receive an additional feature. Players that belong to a guild can enter into an alliance with this feature and profit from useful bonuses in this community. The three alliances are enemies of one another and continually fight each other for dominance on the respective game server. TERA is available as a free-to-play title throughout Europe from today and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest additions to the popular MMORPG.
