En Masse Entertainment have announced the fun and innovative TERA's release date. The absolutely gorgeous MMORPG will be out on May 1, 2012. TERA's release will mark the first true action combat MMO, a fresh twist from the "stale and repetitive gameplay that exists in today’s MMOs," according to En Masse.
TERA allows players to create a character from seven races and eight classes to join an alliance in order to save the world from bloodthirsty monsters. The game will also introduce a new type of political system to the MMO space where players will wield power in different provinces based on their in-game political prowess or PvP skills.
I've played TERA a few times and I think not only is it simply beautiful, but the action combat aspect works fluidly and makes a lot of sense within the world. The game has been out in Korea for quite a long time so we'll just have to wait until May to see if this is the kind of game that Americans are looking forward to. I know at the very least I'm pretty excited about this one. Are you?
