    Exclamation [NEWS] Tera going F2P in Feburary

    The writing has been on the wall, but TERA is finally going free-to-play. Despite positive reviews and coverage going into the game's launch, TERA's questing and leveling style simply didn't set a hook in western audiences. As such, the subscription rate became too much of a burden and much of TERA's audience left quite quickly. Perhaps, as a free-to-play title, TERA will be more alluring. We'll find out some time in February.

    In terms of quality TERA's free-to-play model is quite decent, too. First off, there are no limitations on race or class for character creation, but a free-to-play player will only have two character slots instead of the standard eight (per server). Afterward, all players will have access to all zones and characters. It's that simple. The limitations mostly revolve around convenience, as in limited bank space and auction taxes.

    [Full story on Neoseeker]


    I've just made an account and am downloading the client now. It looks good and the F2P restrictions aren't as bad as other games. *cough*OldRepublic*cough*

    They're not giant... but yes.

    There's also a little girl race. Which is creepy when you realise female armour is little more than underwear.

    There's only 3.

    I'll give you a clue, it's not PvP and isn't the RP server. [I actually can't remember the name.]


    Also, the "little girl" race got modded to they aren't in underwear anymore.

    I had the same thing. I just turned on P2P and let it run.

    I'm also rolling an Elin [the "little girl" race] seeing a child take down, and I quote from the game itself, a "big-ass monster" with dual swords is something I doubt will stop being funny.

    Screw that. Hamster administering a beatdown with (if I like the game enough to buy something) a large ice cream stick.

    Hamster + Little girl double team.

    After that, there's no reason to play the game any more.


    Also, Jesus Christ... It took me ages to find a name that wasn't taken.

    Hmm, used to play a lot of Aion, then everyone sort of split off onto other things, haven't really gotten into an MMO since then, it's just been DotA II for me..
    Might have to give this a look-see.

    Might give this a go at some point, when I can be bothered to boot up my desktop PC. Can't hurt, with it being free.

    I am on the PvE server, name is Moola.

    You'll see why when you see the character.

    Must resist playing another MMO. I'm still paying for WoW, TSW and SWTOR, and two of them are F2P now!

    I'll probably give this a look once I get bored of WoW and TSW again, no reason not to now that it's free.
