TERA Free-to-Play Changes Detailed In Chart, Founder Status Announced
TERA, a pay-to-play MMORPG from Korea featuring decent combat (for an MMO) and weirdly, a race of skimpily dressed little girls, is going free-to-play after a year since its release. It’s not the first time the game has gone free to play—though it’ll have far fewer restrictions than before.
The game’s free-to-play restrictions have been outlined in a new chart on its official website. The new restrictions also take into account any player who purchased the game last year, who are designated as ‘Founders’ according to the new system. Legacy players will get to keep all their character slots and bank tabs, and receive an exclusive mount in addition to a ‘Founder’ title to show off in the game.
En Masse Entertainment intends to discontinue digital sales of TERA as soon as the transition goes live, so physical boxes will be the only way for players to acquire a Founder status once that happens.
The new system will split accounts into three different tiers, with free players seeing very few limitations in contrast to other F2P titles. As a matter of fact, free players will have almost the exact same limitations as Founders. Players who opt to pay a $15 a month fee will receive a few bonuses, including double daily entries into raid dungeons and more daily bonus quests.
If you don’t mind the small amount of weird content that might give your friends the wrong idea about you, you’ll be able to TERA without having to pay anything for it in February.
