TERA: Rising North America is celebrating a new active player record of 1.4 million; the game has gone subscription-free in February and the number of new players has been increasing drastically. To celebrate this satisfying achievement, TERA’s community will be sharing rewards with players.

"With the switch to free-to-play, previous and future TERA players have the chance to play one of the most critically acclaimed massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) of the last few years for free. But that’s not all: just in time for the launch, the world of Arborea has been enhanced with additional content. This includes a new dungeon as well as a player versus player (PvP) arena offering experienced adventurers numerous new challenges and rewards."

"Gameforge is today making significant changes to the server structure of its popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) TERA in Europe. Responding to community requests and to ensure that players can enjoy all that TERA has to offer, the company decided to reduce the number of active servers for the videogame."

Video game music can only take us so far. When the going gets tough and the boredom sets in, I turn off the sound and insert my own soundtrack using my favorite bands. It is the reason why I've done so much in the MMO world. It keeps me moving. Everyone has a way to motivate themselves to play something. Mine is music.

"It has just been announced that TERA Online, the fast-paced action MMORPG from En Masse Entertainment, will be available for $24.99 on May 26th, half of the current price. We were quite shocked when the Amazon press release hit our inbox, not only is TERA Online one of the most popular MMORPG games at the moment, it’s also not even one month old. TERA Online had a great beta period, has had a smooth launch and continues to attract subscribers, so why the drastic drop in price?"

"Today’s release of the first patch for massively multiplayer online (MMO) videogame TERA will see the political system undergoing an expansion. As of tomorrow, players with a level 50 character that also proudly serves as a guild leader will be able to run for office in fifteen provinces. Following this update, on 23rd May at 11:00am BST, all characters level 20 and above will be able to decide which players will be the first Vanarchs to be immortalised in TERA‘s history books."

The Exiled Realm of Arborea is an action filled online world that is intense and engrossing. Whether you're a seasoned MMO player or someone new joining the fray, TERA features enough content and fun to keep you interested from level 1 to 60.

"Following the official launch of the TERA servers yesterday, the retail release of the videogame is now available throughout PAL territories. TERA is a fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that features a slew of innovative features, allowing players to fully control their characters in the videogame’s free targeting combat system."

Leviathyn.com and Jason Fanelli are looking forward to all the great things happening this upcoming week. We have a Call of Duty reveal, a Sony reveal (another one), and a bunch of great releases including one of the best PS1 RPGs heading to PSN.

Leviathyn.com lists some of the heavy hitting betas happening this week, next week, or upcoming. With Ghost Recon taking up the console, three upcoming games are starting or soon beginning their betas.

"Frogster has today launched the open beta testing phase for the forthcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMOPRG), TERA. The oppressive heat of the last closed beta battles has barely begun to cool, and yet fans of the videogame will be keen to get back into the world as the open beta phase begins."

"It’s almost time for the TERA servers to officially go live and to celebrate Frogster has decided to release a screenshot every day leading-up to the official release. A fifth closed beta phase, the open beta and the headstart are yet to come also, for which all pre-order customers will automatically have access."

While most people are hooked on Halo 4, Assassin's Creed 3, and whatever the next Call of Duty will be called these new titles are sneaking up on us fast. With 22 new, original IPs releasing this year, this year will have plenty of fresh faces.

"Frogster has revealed the launch of the pre-order programme for the forthcoming TERA, including two special packages that will be available from launch. Gamers can now pre-order the videogame either digitally or through their local retail store, as both a standard and collector’s edition."

Craig Will of GoozerNation.com has come to prefer PC gaming to console gaming and has even fallen back in love with MMOs since Star Wars: The Old Republic. As such he's always on the look out for a good deal or pre-order bonus when it comes to PC games and Amazon has one for the upcoming Action MMORPG Tera.

What do you do when there are lots of trolls creating problems?
In the case of MMO Tera Online you get a automated community management platform to help control the content that users say while gaming. Some gamers do not like the idea of a automated community management platform.

So what do you think about this?

Nine new screenshots have been revealed for the upcoming (also known as The Exiled Realm of Arborea or TERA Online), featuring the intimidating Vulcan enemies.

"Many of today’s MMORPGs are clones of each other. The genre has been saturated with games that feature boring combat and repetitive quests. Thankfully, TERA takes a different approach and tries to distinguish itself from the general market. Through an invigorating combat system and a groundbreaking political system, it looks to break free from the mold."

GameZone's Matt Liebl interviews the people behind the upcoming game, Tera Online. They talk about the Political System that is in the game, the benefits of it, rewards, implications, and pvp.

A big batch of screens has been released by En Masse Entertainment for their upcoming title, TERA (also known as TERA Online and The Exiled Realm of Arborea).

"Sometimes we’re wearing game designer hats, tuning the gameplay and balancing the rewards. Or we’re wearing our author hats, crafting compelling dialogue, building fascinating characters, and weaving plotlines together. Then we put on our gamer hats and play those quests again and again. Often we find something that makes us go “Hmm…,” put our designer or author hats back on, and make a change…which leads to even more designing, writing, and playing."

"In case our understanding is different from yours, region IP blocking (region blocking) is the practice of banning an area of the world from accessing online content based on the region-specific characteristics of their IP addresses. There are many legal, technical, and community motivators behind region IP blocking; however, we argue that this is an ineffective practice which does far more harm than good for everyone involved."

Leading Irish gaming site www.Bone-idle.ie carries this second part to an interview with the developers behind Tera Online an upcoming MMORPG set to launch next year.

"The story of TERA is quiet complex, but I’ll tell you a bit of it. In the current situation, the players will face the return of the Argons, a metallic race from the Underworld of TERA. These huge and dangerous enemies want to wipe out all mortal races from the world. Due to this threat, all races banded together in the Valkyon Federation to fight against the Argons."

"Everyone's getting in on the Halloween this year! The TERA Online folk over at En Masse have released a fresh set of screenshots and a trailer highlighting the spookier areas of their upcoming action MMO. Have a look at the screenshots in our gallery, and the trailer embedded below."

"TERA is an action-orientated MMO, in which the outcome of bouts of combat is not simply decided by a quick finger and a series of statistics. Player position, timing, and aim all impact combat, a move towards more visceral encounters that are not only designed to work with traditional keyboard-and-mouse controls, but also a console controller. TERA is clearly aiming at a more instantly-rewarding MMO than the long hard slog that the genre-leading World of Warcraft is often criticised for becom..."

"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. Currently in development for the PC by Bluehole Studio, TERA will launch in Korea in summer 2010, and Western markets will follow in winter."

"Formed in 2009, En Masse is comprised of talented veterans whose collective portfolio reflects the most recognised and celebrated IPs from leading companies including Blizzard Entertainment, Microsoft Corp., Electronic Arts Inc., ArenaNet and NCsoft. The first official En Masse title scheduled for release in North America and Europe will be the highly anticipated MMORPG PC title, TERA."
