    TERA Online: The Console Generation

    Coming to PS4 & XBone in 2017, Beta announced
    En Masse Entertainment, a player-driven publisher focused on delivering great games and great service, today announced that their flagship MMORPG, Tera, will be making its long-anticipated debut on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, in 2017. The home console version of Tera will be fully free-to-play and include the entirety of Tera’s expansive MMORPG game world as well as an uncompromised conversion of the skill-based True Action Combat the franchise is known for.

    As the only MMORPG with True Action Combat, Tera’s real-time and skill-based gameplay is the perfect fit for home consoles. While the game already supports a gamepad on PC, the console version’s control scheme is being redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up to ensure a responsive and visceral combat experience. The game’s user interface is also being completely rebuilt for consoles with the controller and living room viewing distances in mind.

    “The past five years of Tera have been fantastic,” said En Masse Entertainment CEO Sam Kim. “We have an amazing and ever-growing player base on PC and we can’t wait to share Tera with a brand new audience on consoles. Everyone at En Masse Entertainment and Bluehole is putting an incredible amount of effort into making sure that console players have the best Tera experience possible, and can enjoy the wide range of content the game has to offer.”

    Was checking out some vids regarding the console version of this and and fell down the YouTube rabbit hole. Apparently, the console release of this game has reignited the Elin Controversy debate, was quite amusing.

    Console Details
    Xbox One and PlayStation 4 gamers that have been clamoring for a MMO title with high combat action, and En Masse Entertainment is readying the release of the MMO-action epic TERA to deliver true action combat with optimized game controls. The new trailer released today demonstrates the detail of improvements made to TERA: streamlined interfaces, intelligent button mapping, and new gameplay systems compliment TERA’s trademark fast-paced combos, dodging, and targeting mechanics.

    TERA brings fast-paced combat and killer combos to the forefront while streamlining the overall experience, resulting in the ultimately refined MMO that fits perfectly on home consoles.

    New features awaiting players include:

    • Lock-On System: An all-new Lock-On System keeps the enemies in sight and the action centered on-screen.

    • Classy Controls: Each character class has its own unique default control scheme. Don’t like the default control layout for your class? No problem! The controls can be completely remapped to tailor any type of preferred layout.

    • Combat Effective UI: The game’s user interface has also been redesigned with a new, fully-customizable Radial Menu for quick and intuitive access weapons and items.

    • Streaming Features: Players can easily broadcast TERA instantly to the community via Twitch, and Mixer with integrated streaming support.

    • Communication is Key: Players can communicate directly with fellow party members via native voice chat support or they can opt out of chat if they prefer at any time.

    The hallmark of TERA has always been true action combat, and the thrill of heroically taking out one of the game’s BAMS (Big Ass Monsters) will be coming to consoles fully intact. All of the skills, tactics, and high-octane combos that make TERA’s combat so deep and satisfying are now in your hands.

    TERA will be available across the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X from Microsoft, and the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system in Spring 2018.

    Yeah, even with a controller and stuff you don't need that and it's just going to get you killed.

    Console hasn't been a good experience so far, but spoiled by PC I guess.

    Eh, I could see it being like the N64 Zelda in that you could fight things without the z-lock, but doing so made things significantly easier. Basically, not having the mouse to control your viewpoint is a pretty hefty loss for a game like TERA, so this comes off as more of a middle ground solution.

    CB2 for consoles start on March 16th. CB2 will be available to participants from last weekend's test only. The game client is not available for new players to download at this time.En Masse has been at work to solve crash issues and other nagging bugs players encountered during CB1.

    CB2 will feature :

    - Nearly all zones, including major towns, will now offer multiple Channels to switch between. To switch channels on PlayStation®4, press the Options button to bring up the main menu, then press Triangle. On Xbox One, press the Menu button, and then press Y.

    - Your UI will no longer close by itself when near other players using a pegasus or interacting with a teleportal.

    - Nameplates for players and NPCs will no longer disappear and force you to restart the client.

    - We are raising the level cap to 58! This means that not only will you have access to more areas and more dungeons, but if you achieve level 40 with any character, you will be able to access an additional class to play: the reaper!

    - General memory and stability improvements.

    - Your existing TERA client will update with the latest patch (available now!), and your Open Beta characters will remain playable for this test! (Please remember that we will still be wiping character progress before launch.)

    If you have Twitch Prime you have access to the head start (Which is already 1 day in), 15 days of Elite Membership, and a auto-loot companion.

    Which is way better than the $30 head start founder pack.

    i've been playing for a week or so, was in the beta for the PC a few years ago. it's not terrible but i'm still pretty low (mid 30's). you level very quickly with the xp buffs/quests/dungeons and everything is really kind of /faceroll.

    the graphics are significantly dumbed down; a lot of textures on NPCs during cutscenes are missing completely (sinestral manor boss chica, for instance, literally had no fucking face during her brief CS). that and the lag are my biggest complaints and the worst of the lag/freezing can be mitigated by avoiding channel 1 like the ever loving plague.

    enchanting weapons (and now armor) is sooooo much easier than it used to be on PC.

    I always played the PC version, with a PS controller, and I never had any aiming issues; just used the mouse for UI interaction with click boxes and inventory/stores. The graphic issue is really odd, considering the age of the game, so I'd say that's a porting issue that should be able to be fixed. Wonder if they ever fixed the massive lag from the server wide events....

    Still waiting for a game to do half as well as TERA did nailing the games character animations, especially the Elin, but, MMO's are really on the downturn now.

    The MMO compulsion to have 4+ races (humans, elf-like, cutesy midgets, burly beastmen, etc.) no doubt inhibits a lot of character model quality. Kinda just waiting for a dev team to be like, "Fuck off, you're all human!" and knock that out of the park. But the genre also needs to get over its instanced raid obsession.

    Rumors of a dwarf race coming with the new continent too, but you can't sexualize dwarves for the majority so I doubt that'll actually happen
