We've been hearing rumours for a while about Tera and so went off digging to find the facts on what is rumoured to be one of this years hottest hardcore games, here's what we know about Tera:
|Tera a new style of MMORPG|
Why is Tera different from other MMORPGs? The focus is on action, TERA is not slow and tradiotional but very, very quick.
Like Button bashing , you'll love Tera but there's depth too with positioning and party tactics.
TERA release Dates: in North America onMay 1, 2012 and in Europe on May 3, 2012.
You can command one of eight unique TERA classes, each one requiring special tactical controls. Players will need to sharpen their aim to pull off strikes and spells, dodge incoming attacks with rolls and jumps.
TERA has a very different type of customised control scheme you can play with keyboard-and-mouse or a PC-compatible console controller, again something that opens up the genre and makes it more action orientated.
What makes TERA unique?
Very unique races and quests, expanding the genre beyond the normal Tolkien-esque ideas: Choose from among seven TERA races and eight TERA classes to create your own fantasy hero. Battle hundreds of monsters throughout 80+ zones and embark on thousands of quests in a game world rich in history and lore.
Epic, Scalable Battles. Larger than normal mobs with advanced AI prowl the land to give a more hardcore MMORPG experience. Noobs can benefit from Tera too with solo adventuring as encouraged as banding together to take on Tera mob packs and later the more powerful bosses.
Impressively Realized Graphics. Unreal Engine 3 powers the lush and vibrant world of Terra, it's well realized characters and unique creatures.
Dynamic Game Community. TERA has created engaging social, political, and economic features to keep players busy while they’re not out downing monsters.
