In case you missed it, TERA is migrating from a 32-bit to a 64-bit client at the beginning of August. Here’s what you need to know.
The move is to improve stability for the game, always a big plus. The update is also set to introduce a new 20-player raid, plus an overhaul to the RK-9 Kennel in addition to some other changes. Because of this change, system requirements will change as well, now requiring at least a Ryzen 1700 / Intel i5 7500 CPU, and a GeForce 970 / Radeon RX 380 graphics card.
The team details the main advantages of this move to 64-bit including:
- The 64-bit client allows more than 4 GB of RAM to be accessed
- The vast majority of RAM client crashes should thus become a thing of the past!
- DirectX 11
- Graphics can be rendered by multiple processor cores, which will improve game performance and stability
- Asynchronous loading
- Various elements in TERA will now load independently of one another
- For example, there should no longer be brief freezes while interface elements load (e.g. when you open your inventory)
