[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.

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*
