TERA players won't have long to wait for the launch of the subscription free version of the game. Both Europe's Gameforge and NA's En Masse Entertainment have announced that the F2P TERA will officially launch on Tuesday, February 5th.
There will be three player status types in TERA: Rising:
- STANDARD players have full access to all in-game content, without restrictions, for up to two free characters per server. They can purchase consumable, cosmetic, and convenience items from the in-game store on an a la carte basis.
- FOUNDER status is granted to all current subscribers as of February 5th, and provides additional character slots, bank tabs, a special mount, and other benefits. Founders retain these benefits regardless of whether they choose Standard or Elite status. Founder status can also be obtained after launch through physical retail packages while supplies last.
- ELITE status can be purchased in 30-day increments that confer numerous benefits including dungeon bonuses and rewards, additional daily quests, daily delivery of items, special mounts, and store discounts. Power players will find the fee more than pays for itself through the free items and discounts granted while they enjoy exclusive in-game perks.
