TERA Goes Free to Play in February

Not sure if anyone saw this, but I just found this on


A snippet from the article:

"Tera will be available for free from February. Previous owners will be upgraded to “Veteran” status, receiving bonuses to character slots and bank tabs. Current subscribers will be moved to the TERA Club membership, receiving daily bonuses until their subscription expires, at which point they’ll be knocked down to Veteran.

Honestly? I’m almost surprised the announcement took this long. As I noted back when I reviewed the game, Tera has one of the better MMO combat systems, but the mission churn of endless kill X mob quests soured the early-mid game.

Still, just looking at the free-to-play comparison chart, this seems to be a generous amount of content available to non-payers, without the silly restrictions that plague some MMOs. Yes, I’m talking about SW:TOR, which appears to treat its free userbase with a genuine disdain."

    Is a pity that a good mmo like this has fallen in the themepark trap :(

    I don't think I'll even try it as a F2P game.  There's nohing that really interests me in it to be honest.

    I'm with you, played it for a week got to 30 and just unsubbed. The only class fun to me was a slayer, and that got boring after a while. I don't think I'll be updating this game anytime soon though.

    Looks like I'll be dusting my Lancer off in February. Was a fun game as far as the dungeons, BAMs and combat goes, the rest was pretty mind numbing. It's too bad that the focus was on the same questing system as everyone else. Would have been much better off upping the difficulty of all the mobs and having it more of a mob grinder since the combat was supposed to be the focus.

    Played: EQ1 (10 Years), Guild Wars, Rift, TERA
    Tried: EQ2, Vanguard, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Runes of Magic and countless others...
    Currently Playing: GW2

    I will definitely play it again. I liked it when I played it, but not enough to drop my other sub games to play it.

    I played the beta, played a few weeks after launch and then called it a day. For me, an MMORPG needs more than just a pretty world and enjoyable combat. Fighting BAMs is a hell of a lot of fun, though.

    I remember wanting to play this game badly when it came out.
