Want an early taste of TERA's beautiful world and visceral combat? Check out this trailer of the game's all-new playable prologue. As TERA begins, the first explorers to the mysterious Island of Dawn are shipwrecked and attacked by demons the moment they land. After reaching the beach, you'll have to struggle to regroup before the demons descend upon the survivors.

Hello, TERA players—Vekas the Wicked Tree here. You may remember me from the Island of Dawn. You know...the place where YOU KILLED ME. (You murderer!) Supposedly I didn't live up to the whole "wicked tree" thing, so En Masse is making me deliver these patch notes. I know it's punishment, but it's also my REVENGE!
Check out the full patch notes for Patch 17.25.01 on our Patch Notes page!
We have published our next installment of TERA's flythrough video series featuring the Tor Exsul region. Missed our other flythrough videos? Check them out on the En Masse Entertainment YouTube channel!
We've fine-tuned your first sessions in TERA to deliver maximum action and get your journey off to a rapid start.
Tired of games that start you in an out-of-the-way village where the chieftain wants you to collect coconuts in the jungle? TERA's new playable prologue starts you right in the middle of the action: a beachhead under assault by demonic forces. It's not just a cutscene—you'll be fighting big-ass monsters within minutes, learning the controls as you go.
We have published the dungeon guide for TERA's third instanced dungeon, the Cultists' Refuge! The Scions of Lok have concentrated their forces in a remote desert temple, where they plan to resurrect fallen allies and unleash a terrible power on the Valkyon Federation.
This dungeon is meant for three to five characters, levels 35-40, including at least one tank, one damage dealer, and one healer. You'll face three tough bosses in this dungeon, and an optional fourth.
TERA is a place where you'll spend hundreds of action-packed hours. The least we can do is make it as fun, challenging, and immersive as possible.
A great MMORPG is a place where you'll spend hundreds of hours, and TERA wants to make sure those hours are full of action and achievement, not boredom or frustration. We've tackled a long list of "polish" elements to make TERA as player-friendly as possible.
TERA fans, you're awesome! Just a few hours after the start of our Early Character Creation event, we already have our first full server: Valley of Titans. This PvP-ruleset server is now full with eager new recruits sporting your preferred names and meticulous customization. For those keeping score, it was also the most populated server during our Closed Beta Test events!
In response, we'd like to add a bit more room on the Valley of Titans server over the course of the next two days.
Are you participating in our Early Character Creation event this weekend? You may have noticed a few frames of the TERA launch cinematic as you furiously clicked through it to claim your first character's name! With your preferred name secured, you can now safely watch the video, titled "Beginnings", right here in this news post or on our YouTube channel.
The cinematic shows how the Valkyon Federation has come together to face a soulless army that threatens to engulf the world from the perspective of a baraka warrior-sage. Observant viewers will see each of TERA's seven playable races take part in the action, and will enjoy a sneak preview of the monsters they'll face and the places they'll visit. Combat—essential to an action MMO like TERA—takes center stage, and eagle-eyed fans will recognize some of the spells and attacks they'll use when TERA launches on May 1.
Waiting for our Early Character Creation event to start in just a few hours? Check out our recap of PAX East 2012 featuring our action-packed press demo of the Twilight Valley endgame area!
This lush garden has been overrun by the Argons, the mechanical menace hell-bent on terraforming TERA's world and killing off all organic life. The demo put a focus on team play and cooperation, and required good communication and coordination to keep the party's priest healing and lancer tanking throughout the battles.
