En Masse has confirmed that Tera: Rising will launch as a free-to-play title on February 5. With the relaunch of the game, there will be two PvP servers in Mount Tyrannas and Lake of Tears, two PvE servers in Tempest Reach and Ascension Valley along with a PvE roleplay server in Celestial Hills.
“Lake of Tears and Ascension Valley will be on their own matching system for dungeons and battlegrounds. Character transfers (free for a limited time) will be available among Mount Tyrannas, Tempest Reach, and Celestial Hills. Characters can transfer once every 30 days,” notes En Masse. “To handle the influx of new Tera gamers, we’re establishing some chat channel restrictions. Area chat is available for characters level 5 and up, trade and LFG chats are level 12 and up, and global chat is level 20 and up. We’re limiting chat rates as well to handle all the traffic.”
“Finally, Tera’s community suggested that we give Tera’s founders—those who’ve already played the game—priority queueing if there’s a wait to get into the game. We agree! If you’re a founder, head toward the front of the line (just step over the velvet rope!),” the company added.
