Tera going free to play starting in Febreuary

#1 Edited by _k1_ (199 posts) -

Starting next month, the NA version of Tera is going free to play. There is a FAQ and a forum thread covering the transition.

Edit: The EU version is also going F2P, and has a FAQ as well.

The Korean and Japanese servers are already F2P

Edit: sorry for the double post and typos.

This is what I've been waiting for. We all knew it would happen. It would be doubly convenient if they launched it on steam as well.

Only a matter of time before the European version follows. I bought a copy a few weeks ago since a Swedish retailer sold them for what amounts to 5 dollars or so. Not a bad price for that game.

YES! Been hoping for this for a while. Jeff Cannata raving about this on every Weekend Confirmed has got me interested!

The current model as I understand it has it free yes but only up to a specific level.

The real issue here is if I have to pay to play the loli race or not.

Man, that QL's in-game chat was just fantastic.

Wow that was pretty fast, I figured Tera would hold out longer. However it has long since become obvious that being "F2P" is not a death sentence or even a sign of bad quality. I may give it a look-see now.

Good times! I've been playing since CB1 and I'll continue subscribing for now and hopefully this will be a change for the better. Elite account sounds fairly beneficial.

Free, eh. Maybe I will give it a shot but were I to get into an MMO again I think Guild Wars 2 would be the one.

Now that Tera has gone F2P, I will totally jump in and play the game. Heck, I might throw some money at them if there Cash Shop has something worth while.

I am actually decently excited about this. The short time I spent in Tera, I loved. It is just hard to pay monthly for multiple MMOs when I don't have the time I used to. I would love to be able to play WoW, Tera, and Rift all at the same time by only paying for WoW.

I'll try it, but I'm quite enjoying The Old Republic right now.
