A couple weeks ago, we introduced the TERA: Item Pass, a new DLC product on the PlayStation and Xbox stores. The Item Pass is only available until April 30!
When designing the Item Pass, we took inspiration from several sources: monthly physical item subscriptions like LootCrate (to which many En Masse employees subscribe and enjoy), and the "season passes" typical of console games.
We also wanted players to have at least one more reason to come back to TERA every month in addition to the new content and events we have planned.
Admittedly though, reception to the item pass was mixed. Players asked, "Why would I buy something if I don't know what I'm getting?" …and that's a fair question.
We still feel that some mystery is an important element of the product, but we also recognize that it can be hard to justify buying something without fully knowing what it is. So today, we want to give you a better idea of what Item Pass is worth, and what Item Pass holders can expect over the next few months:
April 2018—First up, you'll receive Malkin, an exclusive gray variant sushi cat mount. While the rest of the sushi cats debuted in the TERA Store Thursday, April 5, Item Pass holders got the sushi cats a couple days early. The Item Pass might grant early access to certain items in this way in the future.
May 2018—We already dropped one hint about the May item—if you look closely at the product description for the Item Pass on the PlayStation or Xbox Store, you'll find it. Here's another: Look for the multi-colored pet you can take for a spin.
June 2018—Item Pass players will be the first to take to the skies, with the fiercest of TERA's flying mounts!
July 2018—It's not a rocket. It's not even a scooter! It will, however, change how people see you.
August 2018—A fan-designed favorite from the PC version of TERA, complete with a matching accessory. This item includes a costume for both male and female characters!
September 2018—A weapon skin for those who can't decide on a favorite color.
October 2018—Another question many people are asking is, "What's up with that dragon egg?" In the second month of your Item Pass, you'll receive a special item to use on your egg. By the end of your pass, you'll have all the materials you need to fully evolve your dragon egg into something fierce.
We hope the clues above have whetted your appetite for the mysteries of the Item Pass.
Remember, the items included in the Item Pass will be exclusive to item pass holders through October 2018—and will not be attainable by any other method.
