TERA Online Release Time Frame Confirmed (NA and EU!)
En Masse Entertainment, a new publisher built by gamers and focused on delivering fun and innovative online games, announced today that the launch of its award-winning and highly anticipated Action MMO, TERA, is scheduled for spring 2012. Development and production continues to both add new features as well as refine confirmed elements to deliver an innovative, action packed experience set in a visually stunning world that can only be discovered in TERA.
“Adding time to our schedule will help us ensure we exceed people’s expectations for TERA,” said Chris Lee, publishing VP of En Masse Entertainment. “The game’s action combat and depth has generated a lot of interest, and we are committed to making sure every aspect of the game lives up to our standard of quality.”
The recipient of several industry honors, including 9 awards and 17 nominations coming out of E3 2011, TERA is a new class of game that combines all the depth of an MMO with the gratification of an action game. Players master their destiny using a pioneering dynamic combat system in which player skill—not just stats—determine success or failure in a richly detailed game world. TERA’s player-driven political system allows individual player actions to influence a world where old rivalries are erased, and disparate races must form a common federation to stave off destruction by marauding monsters and warring gods.
Coinciding this announcement, Frogster, TERA’s European publishing company, has stated that the European launch of TERA will mirror the North American launch.
“By launching TERA in Spring 2012 we ensure that the game will not only live up to expectations, but surpass them,” said Daniel Ullrich, CMO of Frogster Online Gaming. “We’ll be unveiling various features at Gamescom and rest assured these are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what players can expect when TERA is released early next year.”
Frogster has also promised a very closed alpha testing period in the coming months with an open beta beginning at the start of 2012! OnRPG is chomping at the bit to get our hands on this excellent game and we look forward to bringing you future Early Access columns and videos as soon as this is possible!
