The TERA Store is… Live!

The TERA Store is... Live!

Many of you -- our earliest-adopter fans -- experienced problems with our online store in the last 24 hours, for which we are sorry. If you read our previous update you will have learned that a mission-critical ecommerce system failed and the backup system didn't come online -- not exactly the most shining moment for our young company. This problem not only knocked out our store, but those of several other major game companies too, since we all utilize the same e-commerce provider for our online storefronts. Bad news!

The good news is that these systems are now back online after the provider's largest response effort in six years, and in the event you'd like to take the plunge, it is possible to use the online store to get TERA just in time for this weekend's second closed beta test event.

Recapping TERA's Successful First Closed Beta Test

Recapping TERA's Successful CBT1

We're pleased to share details regarding the first of TERA's five closed beta tests! The weekend started with the En Masse team spending Friday evening in the office watching the world of TERA come to life as players began to appear in-game. The team was delighted to see players come into the game and instantly start swinging their weapons wildly. Right off the bat, expectations for an MMO were shattered as players found that clicking their mouse didn't activate some interface element or start a cooldown timer, but instead fired off the slash of a sword or a bolt of energy.
