It seems that TERA’s run as a subscription model based game is about to end. NHN is reportedly working on changing the game to a free-to-play business model, namely the Korean and Japanese versions. The transition for the Korean market should be concluded on January 10th, 2013, while the Japanese version will be concluded in mid-February.
As usual, free accounts will have some limits, such as three to four character slots and longer dungeon cool-down times.
This sounds like the first step in the process of turning TERA into a free-to-play game at a global scale, while nothing is yet announced for the European and North-American versions of this MMORPG. When do you think this is going to happen, and are you interested in seeing TERA as a F2P game?
