TERA, or The Exiled Realm of Arborea, is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) developed by Bluehole Studio and being published by En Masse Entertainment. It was initially released on May 1, 2012 in North America and May 3, 2012 in Europe. This MMORPG program features true action combat that requires tactical timing, aiming and dodging. Players may also choose the controller they will use. TERA supports keyboard, mouse and PC-compatible console controller.
The game is set in a world created by two dreaming primal gods. The story revolves around the world of TERA where seven races come together to defend TERA from their new enemy – the Argons – whose aim is to destroy the world they live in. The gameplay involves similar features in most MMORPG. This includes crafting, questing and PvP action. The game’s battle system uses the third person camera view. Instead of tabbing or clicking the opponent, players will target their enemy using a cross-hair cursor. Players may also choose from one of the seven available races – Baraka, Aman, Humans, High Elves, Elins, Castanics or Popori. There are also different classes available in the game. These are Priest, Slayer, Sorcerer, Lancer, Mystic, Warrior, Berserker and Archer. TERA also has a political system called Valkyon Federation where players can run for the Vanarch position. However, player who’s interested in the position should meet the qualifications.
