I have to admit I haven't followed this title very closely, and I have a lot of catching up to do after watching this interview / in-game footage. The detail on those mobs was pretty awesome, and the combat looks REALLY fast-paced and visceral. I saw the Popori a while back and immediately figured I wouldn't like this game, but I'm changing my mind.

The more I hear about Tera, the more I am interested, unlike a certain upcoming MMO with lightsabers.

Most of the En Masse team are ex-NCSoft America people.

 

Also it should be noted, that En Masse is a publisher, not the developer of the game. This interview doesn't clarify this enough.

The one thing I will give tera, right now without actually seeing the game, their trailers can really hype you up, good music/ video mixture, great sales team there, keep it up!

I'm envious of David Noonan's job. To have this massive world, all these races and creatures and backgrounds at my disposal to craft a world out of.... Awesome stuff.

Also... Very good interview. Covered some good information, asked some good questions.

I'm really curious, though, how player dynamics will be involved in the PvP side of things. Hopefully more on that will be revealed as we go forward.

The main thing I'm interested in is the visceral, fast paced combat. I'm so done with MMO's like WoW that are all numbers based and essentially "follow the Tankspot vid", with long, inane boss fight explanations. I hope that era of the MMO genre is coming to a close.

not quite right Bobfish, they took the game world from the original developers, and made a completely new lore and quests, made a lot of other configurations - ofc this is what they said atleast, if you read abit about the game, and something as basic as tera-online.com FAQ.

havent played the Korean version so couldnt know how that game is....but to me sounds like they took the game and re-modelled the experience of the game...not so much the game itself.

either way, hope it wont be another aion for sure tho ;

The word choice in this interview was very filtered and selective. Almost made me upset. This is a Bluehole developed game. A Korean game developer using the Unreal 3 Engine. 

I think this whole fact was left out due to the stigma Korean or Asian game ports have. I can understand this from a marketing point of view. But, Bluehole has created something special to where a group of American corporate game bigwiggs formed a whole new company, En Masse to bring this game to the Western world the right way. They are putting there names on the line in order to make this work. 

What's going to make this game epic is how both Bluehole and En Masse are truly paying attention to consumer comments/suggestions and actually implementing them in the game.

I just want to give props where props is due.

I really want to get this game.  Probably most anticipated for me other than Guild Wars 2 and possibly Jumpgate depending on how that turns out.  I just need me some PvP that matters and some good combat.

The game has originality? Hell yes!

I've played the game several of hours and the mobs and creatures are so awesome and some of them are so odd. There is definitely originality going on here.

Great game, interesting interview.

I hate to say it put that Asian influence is hard to escape and does NOTHING for me. The oversexed girls and the anime faces and the way too big weapons... just doesn't resonate with me at all.

 

Guess I'm too stuck in my Tolkienesque low fantasy ways. :P

 

Happy for those who are excited for it though. The combat kind of looks fun, and the mobs are definitely out there.

Other than the stupid size of some of the weapons it looks very very good. I know some stylised graphics are there so you know instantly ah thats a lancer or thats a warrior but they need a to be a little more proporional to what someone could realistically swing.

 

Other than that it looks very good, the combat seems to be very skill based and the story looks to be interesting. I think it could be a contender and one hell of an MMO. Anyone know when its going to be released?

This game officially has my attention now.  While I wouldn't describe it as looking particularly "different" than other MMOs, it does seem to have some unique qualities.  Also, the graphics look fantastic for an MMO and the description of it as being an action MMO is also very appealing.

I will wait and see how it turns out.  For their sake, however, I hope they don't release it around the time of Cataclysm or SWToR.

I see a lot of talking about the oversize weapons they carry and this and that. If you played WoW and looked at the dual 2H weapons its crazy there too, and lots of MMO's have that kind of crap. But get past that, and get past the girl's with the big boobs and look at everything else, we all got our opinion of what should be there look for the silver lining my friends. If your tire of WoW like I am this could be the change your looking for. Also wainting on more on Rifts game and FFXIV, oh and lets not forget GW2.

 

Overall I look at it and think that it might be something I can actually play for a little while maybe for a long while. I am tired of all the other stuff I see out there.

The game would be perfect if they would just decrease the size of the weapons. To Asian like, who the hell wants a 10 foot long axe or sword, please guys stop making such obsurd looking big weapons.

I would think gameplay would be the determining factor.  No wonder this site is full of whining and complaining... can't get by the oversized weapons.  I would be willing to bet that a large percentage of the MMORPG target audience thinks oversized weapons are "cool" (and no, I'm not one them, but who cares if it's fun?).

Hedeon,

Re-writing load of text doesn't mean much, though I am aware that Blue Hole Studio (the developer) is working closely with En Masse through out the development cycle incorporating the feedback they receive from the En Masse testing.

Still, it is important to note that the guy talking isn't a developer.

Yep, that action scenes look real nice - not your typical WOW clicker but more AOC style action. Also one of the few with such nice detailed graphics. Definatly worth a try

Have you guys seen the size of a REAL sword? Trust me, the weapons in TERA are not oversized. they are REALISTIC when it comes to size (you have just seen too many virtual weapons).

PS: this one is contender one of the 3 contenders for being the perfect MMO (in my books)

PPS: the term "this one" made me sound like a Mass Effect Hanar, didn't  it.

PPPS: "PPS" gives you the sudden need to use the restroom doesn't  it.

Damn, and right after I start hoping for a game with a decent active combat someone has gone and spoiled the fun by mentioning AoC...

Nevermind the rant, I just think that they'll have to do MUCH better than AoC if they want something other than visuals in their game...

Anyway, it's not the time for conclusions yet.
