    TERA Online Going Free-To-Play in February



    Hot damn!

    Got to love the jab at SWTOR.

    This will probably help too: Official FAQ

    Hoping this works out for them, I'll more than likely play some once it goes free as I loved the game but couldn't justify the sub fee for it.

    Fuck yeah, think I'll go and hop on the US servers then. Game should be great for a F2P game, just the latency on US and the shitty service on EU couldn't really justify a sub.

    You will see F2P in EU about this time in 20.6 years.

    And I noticed there's a bit more shit-talking in the general channels.
    Ah well, better than nothing; and certainly better than paying the sub;P

    looks like ill be trying the f2p, i think i did get a beta invite for this at one point but after being burnt out on wow i never followed through, looks like ill get a nice chance to try it next month.

    how many decent mmos left now than aren't f2p not many i'm thinking. :O

    oh and the stab at swtor on that vid made me chuckle aswell. sounds like this will have one of the best F2P models if the guy isn't skimping on the details.

    Looking at the FAQ the only real downsides I'm seeing is limited bank space, limited auction house space, and only two character slots. All of which can be rectified with purchases, I'm sure.

    There might be more to it, but that's the impression I've gotten.

    I actually bought a month of Tera a few days ago and started leveling a warrior (Thanks sword art online lol). This new announcement sounds good to me, especially considering ill have founder status.

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Saw this coming a while ago, and it was basically stated when the Korean version went F2P.

    Thus far from what I've seen, they have a pretty solid F2P model that doesn't shaft subscribers (though I'm no expert on the game), especially for "founder" members. Quite pleased and excited to jump back in the game.

    I really really like the vid though, "add rather than restrict". Nice jabs at BioWares model there too. I actually really liked the vid despite my dislike of Brian Knox (he totally fucked up the Aion localization). The fact that he mentioned that they need to pay the bills, as inconsquential/small as it may be, made me really happy for some reason. I imagine because of the honesty behind the statement and the fact that he acknowledges it while they are still delivering a solid model that's super friendly to free players.

    Yup, Ill be jumping on board to check it out as well. Man so many games going f2p now, I can barely keep up.

    I had beta but never used it, and I dont think I will try the f2p version...
    But I heard that there is a pvp patch of the motherlord incoming, but what does it mean in reality? Every game that gives pvp a fair shot might be worth checking out, if the pvp starts with the game or close to it (say lvl 10 the latest for pvp to begin). I dont like pve questing leveling kind of style... not in order to get to the good stuff (pvp) something most mmos out there actually managed... leveling in pvp is fun, leveling with boring quests isnt (star wars however had both fun pvp leveling and pve leveling so you could mix depending on todays mood).
    So far questing and killing mobs seems to be only viable leveling option in this game right?
