Beta Test Schedule

by Scapes

Eager to get your hands on TERA before its launch this coming May? We've got you covered with plenty of opportunities to do just that! TERA's beta test schedule spans from February to April and includes closed beta tests, an open beta test, and the newly-announced Head Start play period.

  • Closed Beta Test 1: February 10 – 12
  • Closed Beta Test 2: February 24 – 26
  • Closed Beta Test 3: March 9 – 11
  • Closed Beta Test 4: March 23 – 25
  • Closed Beta Test 5: April 6 – 8
  • Open Beta Test: April 19 – 22
  • Head Start: April 28 – May 1

We will be hosting five closed beta tests for TERA starting February 10, each lasting about 60 hours from Friday at 12:00 PM PST to Sunday at 11:59 PM PST of that week. Those who have signed up for beta have a chance to be randomly selected to participate in single events. Players who pre-order TERA will gain access to all five closed beta tests and be allowed to retain their characters and their progress for the duration of the closed beta period.

TERA's open beta test starting on Thursday, April 19, will be open to all who sign up. Finally, the Head Start is an event exclusively for players who pre-order TERA , taking place the weekend before TERA's launch on May 1. There will be no non-disclosure agreement (NDA) during any of these events so feel free to screenshot, film, and write about your experiences and share them with your friends and guildmates!
