The action MMORPG TERA has a long life ahead, it seems. Besides the PC version which is frequently getting decent updates – the next one including the 13th class Valkyrie – and boasts 25 million registered players, Bluehole’s game is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this year, En Masse Entertainment has revealed.
Just as the PC version, the console iterations of TERA will be free-to-play and should include the entirety of TERA’s game world – it’s not clear if this encompasses the latest updates to the game or not, but we should know soon enough. The control scheme is being rebuilt from the ground up to adapt to the console’s gamepads, although the PC version already supports gamepad, so the team knows pretty well the task ahead. The user interface is also being revamped for the console releases.
“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.”
You can already register for the PS4 or Xbox One console betas here, and beta test plans are expected to be revealed in the coming months.
