The fantasy action MMORPG features what is called True Action Combat. This is based on real time and skill based combact system. The system focuses on timing and parrying then just skill rotation. It also comes with gamepad support that will make it feel more like an action-RPG than an MMO which makes it a good fit for consoles.
At one point in time, the action-RPG was the most played MMORPG on Steam just last year with more than 25 million registered players joining the action and it showed no signs of slowing down. En Masse Entertainment CEO, Sam Kim, talked about bringing the popular PC MMORPG to home consoles and what the new players should expect:
“The past five years of TERA have been fantastic. We have an amazing and ever-growing player base on PC and we can’t wait to share the game with a brand new audience on consoles. Everyone at En Masse Entertainment and Bluehole is putting an incredible amount of effort into making sure that console players have the best TERA experience possible, and can enjoy the wide range of content the game has to offer.”
The game will come to XBOX One and PlayStation 4 later this year. En Masse Entertainment has launched a closed beta for which you can sign up. PAX East attendees will be able to check out the game on console this weekend for a hands-on. The PC version is also available now totally free.
