TERA PC is grabbing its bags and moving over to the new En Masse Launcher today, and we wanted to share our thoughts with you about this change. The new launcher is a crucial step in our broader effort to improve the experience of the North American TERA community and the En Masse player base as a whole.
Historically, En Masse focused on solving problems or adding features for one game at a time, resulting in work that benefited the game in question but offered less value to our player community. The En Masse Launcher, and other upcoming changes, are part of a company-wide effort aimed at changing that philosophy.
By bringing our games together in this shared and connected “ecosystem”, we can commit more resources to solving problems, create player value and generally improve the player experience.
Under this philosophy, TERA benefits directly from everything we do at En Masse. This process will yield benefits beyond just the launcher, but here’s a few things you’ll see today:
- A greatly simplified patch process
- A cleaner interface
- Quicker patching
- Access to social channels
- Fewer restarts during updates
- Expanded communication options
- Did we mention much faster patching already?
We look forward to hearing your feedback on the new launcher experience on our forums—in fact, we recommend you use the links in our launcher to do so! This is just the beginning of our En Masse ecosystem, and we have a lot more changes planned.
To help you upgrade your launcher, we’ve outlined a step-by-step process to make it as easy as possible.
