En Masse Entertainment Details Big Ass Monsters and Achievements in TERA
En Masse Entertainment, the company behind the upcoming action MMO, TERA, is bringing you more information on the creatures players will be fighting once they delve into the game’s mesmerizing world when the game launches this year. TERA’s world is far from safe, and as players venture through it – be it across deserts, over fertile plains, or through ancient ruins – they can be certain they will encounter monsters. A lot of monsters! And as they move through TERA’s world, players will earn achievements for everything from political dealings to monster slaying.
Gamers will see and experience firsthand a wide assortment of memorable monsters in En Masse’s upcoming action combat MMO, TERA. With more than 600 monsters, MMO enthusiasts will instantly notice how the monsters in TERA are like none other. Rampaging beasts with lava for innards. Behemoths from bygone civilizations. Eyeballs that glare at you from unnatural angles.
TERA’s “True Action Combat” is heavily supported by the way players will encounter and engage TERA’s monsters, who possess sophisticated AI attributes that will deliver challenging actions and surprises. Monsters shouldn’t mindlessly run toward the enemy and repeat the same attack over and over again. TERA’s monsters circle you. They see which spell you’re casting and leap out of the way. And if you stumble in a fight, you know they’ll pounce. Victory requires skill and practice, not just a bigger magic sword. Aiding in the player’s ability to defeat these monsters will be subtle cues and behaviors that, when demonstrated, will act as prompts on how to best anticipate and counter their actions.
Size Does Matter – Meet TERA’s BAMs
If there’s one thing TERA has in spades, it’s BAMs – that is, Big-Ass Monsters. When we say big-ass monster, we don’t just mean extra hit points. These monsters are bigger than a house, tougher than an armored car, and meaner than a dentist with a grudge. As players wear them down, these BAMS will go through different phases with unique attacks challenging players to adjust their strategy. One of these phases is called “enrage” where the monster will show they are irate and then deal unpredictable and devastating damage. Cutting a BAM down to size is the moment you’ll be telling your friends about the next day.
Gamers at last month’s Game Developers’ Conference faced off against the Soulcrusher – a big, bad rock monster that delivers big, bad hits. And there’s the Giant Gladiator, which lives up to its name in both stature and strength. Get into a fight with one, and you’ll discover that it’s just as tough and mean as it is huge. Stay tuned for more BAMs, coming soon!
Achievements in TERA
In an action game like TERA, there isn’t always time to rest on your laurels. There’s always another monster to fight and another territory to make safe for the Valkyon Federation. But TERA’s players do amazing things, and our achievement system acts like a spotlight, giving you the honor and prestige you deserve.
In TERA, you’ll earn achievements no matter which parts of the game you prefer. Story, monsters, player-vs-player combat, economics, and politics all earn you achievements to help you keep track of the great deeds you’ve done – and to give you something to shoot for. Many of the achievements come with titles like “Savior of Velika” or “Gutrend Conqueror” that display under your character’s name, so all your friends can see what you’ve accomplished, too!
