'TERA: The Exiled Realm of Arborea' - 10 New Screens

by Rainier on March 12, 2010 @ 8:51 a.m. PST

TERA is an MMORPG where you battle epic wars, protect your kingdom from demise, and brings you thrills never experienced before in traditional MMOs with its action-filled gameplay and riveting visuals.

TERA raises the bar, setting new standards in the gaming industry. It is a visually stunning world with graphic quality above all other games in the industry. You will experience a new ground-breaking gameplay system where stereotypes of traditional MMORPGs will be broken. You will have full control over the attacks and the fate of your enemy. No more "pointing and clicking" and playing combat relay with the enemies. Furthermore, not only do you control the action, TERA is also set in a world where the players will dictate the flow of the economy and individually impact the community environment.

In TERA, players master their destiny in a richly detailed game world with a pioneering dynamic combat system. Individual player actions can transform the balance of power in 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.

You become part of the realm of Arborea, created by the Ancient Gods. You defend your race in a fantasy world where your creators, descendents of the Ancient Gods, have warred upon each other centuries ago. Join forces and become part of a vast world in constant conflict, where new battles and weaponry skills will leave you grasping for more as you become immersed in the realm of Arborea. Take charge and become the hero the world seeks!

Unlike traditional MMOs, there is no "point and click" system, giving you more control of the character and providing more riveting action play. No longer do you click your mouse and doze off into the sunset waiting for your opponent to die. You will have full control over the attacks and the fate of your enemy. TERA is set in a world where you, the players, will impact the community. The players will dictate the flow of the economy. You will trade, buy/sell more frequently with fellow players and create a community unique to your world.


TERA will be a subscription based model and will feature box products for sale in North America. Further details will be disclosed at a later time.

TERA innovates in three key areas crucial to MMO quality and success:

  • Action-adventure style combat: Player position, timing, and aim all impact combat, creating a uniquely immersive "explore and engage" experience that goes beyond traditional point-and-click-style MMO games. Keyboard-and-mouse controls or a console gamepad put characters right in the action.
  • Rich, Lushly Rendered Fantasy World: Six character races, eight classes, thousands of quests, a huge array of weapons and items, hundreds of different monsters, and a deep tradition of history and lore are delivered with stunning graphics and beautifully stylized animations.
  • All Action, No Faction: Players of the six races comprising the Valkyon Federation join in a common struggle against rampaging monsters, insidious demons, and the horrors of a world torn apart by the gods. Players not only control the action, they dictate the flow of the economy and impact the community environment as part of a player-centric community with unparalleled security and service.
