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 brings true action combat into a high fantasy MMORPG setting. Players explore a vast world where their combat skills are put to the test against deadly Big Ass Monsters (BAMs). They’ll need to actively dodge out of the way of incoming attacks, study enemy attack patterns, and execute precise skill combos to take them down! 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!

With a character type to match nearly every play style and innumerable customization options, TERA gives every player a gameplay experience that is uniquely their own. Quest solo, bring your friends, or make new ones…the world of TERA awaits.

En Masse Entertainment have released the “Skywatch: New Heights” content update for the PC version of TERA.

Fresh challenges await both new and veteran players as they journey to the updated level cap of level 70. Things kick off with level 65 players receiving “The Nightmare Begins” quest-chain, which will help guide players as they level up.

The signature BAMs (Big-Ass Monsters) of TERA are more threatening, and rewarding, than ever with the introduction of Field BAMs. These monstrosities are much larger cousins of the BAMs players are familiar with, spawning randomly throughout the world of TERA, and all players who contribute towards downing one of these deadly enemies are eligible for experience and loot!

There’s more to “Skywatch: New Heights” than just gaining levels; the update also introduces the Skill Advancement and Gear Fusion systems for additional character customization.

Skill Advancement uses experience items earned from downing Field BAMs, Vanguard Requests and other sources to gradually improve a skill’s performance, with player’s eventually unlocking up to three alternate versions of select skills. These new skill versions can be freely changed any time players are out of combat, allowing them to tailor skills to suit a diverse array of challenges.

The Gear Fusion system allows players to combine two pieces of gear together, consuming one of the items and granting additional stats to the other. Additionally, once players hit level 66 they unlock two new gear slots—for Halidoms and Relics infused with the power of the gods!

Rounding out the update, the dungeons of TERA have received a considerable overhaul in response to player feedback. Instead of limited number of daily entries, characters now receive a weekly supply of Adventure Coins to enter dungeons. The cost to enter a dungeon scales based its difficulty, and Adventure Coins regenerate whether or not a player is online, granting them more flexibility on how they spend them and when.

This update also includes 7-player variants of Antaroth’s Abyss, Grotto of Lost Souls, and Dark Reach Citadel; as well as solo variants of Bastion of Lok, Sinestral Manor, and Cultists’ Refuge. Additionally, all level 20-60 dungeons have been rebalanced for 3 players of any class, removing the matching requirements for tanks and healers.

TERA is currently available for Xbox One, PS4 sand PC.
