En Masse Entertainment announces upcoming action MMORPG that will feature unprecedented player control, rich graphics and a player empowered community.
TERA, currently in development for the PC, will launch in Korea this summer, with the western markets following this winter.
“TERA is a new class of MMO that combines the depth and flexibility of online PC games with the lush graphics and immediacy of console action games,” said Dr. Jae-Heon Yang, CEO of En Masse Entertainment. “Players can go beyond factions and static storylines to write the history of TERA in real time as six races learn to work together.”
TERA will innovate in the following areas:
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.
