MMORPG TERA May Make Its Debut On Xbox One & PlayStation Later This Year

Posted on August 4, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Free to play MMORPG TERA could be heading to the Xbox One & PlayStation 4 if a new survey that has been emailed to players from developer Bluehole is accurate.  We don’t have images of the actual questions from the survey but we do have what appears to be an image from the initial survey invite email taken from a mobile phone.

Here is a copy of the survey invite as posted on Reddit:


A job posting published this past May by Bluehole Studios requested applicants for a Technical Lead to assist with porting the game to both consoles. Duties listed in the job adverts included coming up with short term and long term plans for the two ports as well exploring the possibility of developing the TERA property for “other markets”.

TERA originally launched during the tail endz of the 2000s MMORPG boom back in 2011 and was originally required a monthly subscription fee.  What sets TERA apart from other late 2000s MMORPG titles that emerged in the wake of World of Warcraft’s success is its closer third person camera and real-time action focused combat. Like another console bound MMORPG, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV, TERA can be played with either a mouse & keyboard or Xbox controller.  TERA completed its transition to free to play with the TERA RISING update in February 2013.

Here is how Bluehole describes TERA on its Steam Page:

TERA is at the forefront of a new breed of MMO. With True Action Combat – aim, dodge, and time your attacks for intense and rewarding tactical combat. Add the deep social experience of a MMO to best-in-class action combat mechanics for a unique blend of both genres. Play now for free!

If you can’t wait for the eventual PS4 and Xbox One version of TERA, here are the PC minimum requirements:

TERA Online Launches

Posted on May 1, 2012 by Kirk Williford

TERA Online is now available for purchase, according to developers En Masse Entertainment and distributor Atari.

TERA is an action-based MMORPG that was developed using Epic Game’s Unreal Engine 3. In the game, players can assume the role one of eight different classes across seven different races, ranging from the strong Baraka to the elegant High Elf. The game takes place in Arborea and features all of which you’d come to expect from an MMO — crafting, PvP, questing and dungeons, but also brings many new elements to the genre. The game is set up to be played entirely with a controller if the player chooses, and a more dynamic combat system promises more real-time flavored fights against players and giant monsters alike. Unlike most MMOs where you tab target, in TERA, you use your crosshair to aim spells and attacks against opponents, bringing an entirely new feel to the genre.

TERA Online is available in stores starting today, and retails for $49.99 USD. There is a monthly fee to access the game’s servers. You can check out the game’s launch trailer after the jump.Read More
