Sexy TERA Trailer Shows Its Lineage

I don't know much about TERA: The Exiled Realm of Arborea, but after watching this gorgeous trailer for the upcoming action MMO I'd definitely like to get to know it better.

TERA is the inaugural work of South Korean MMO developer Bluehole Studios. Bluehole was formed in 2007 by a handful of ex-NCsoft employees, including the producer, lead game designer, lead programmer, and art director of Lineage II, which would explain why the game looks so lovely.

Play is another thing entirely, however, and I was never big fan of how Lineage II played. Hopefully TERA's action-based combat system will differentiate from the older title. As it stands, I love the look, but I'm worried about the feel. It takes more than having anthropomorphic raccoons as a playable race to impress this MMO player.

Okay, no it doesn't.

For a closer look at TERA, including gameplay videos, class and race profiles, and a run-down of the game's premise, check out the game's official website.

En Masse Entertainment will be publishing TERA in North America next winter.


    Searching for irony in this newspost and failing...

    Watching this doesn't stain your soul even a little bit?

    Question the maturity of an industry that spends so much time talking up how adult it is now?

    Wonder if this is something the game designers would ever be proud show their their loved ones?

    I am interested in seeing how complex dungeons are; if there are any interesting mechanics (like ability to break down walls/gates, pull levers to achieve certain things/etc).
    Seriously since Ragnarok Online I haven't been able to stay for more than 10 days on any other MMO. If there were more Endless Towers, War of Emperium's (especially 2.0) in MMOs I would be there right away.

    I've seriously grown tired of just grinding on doing endless quests that I never connect with. I want more mass player vs mass player (guild vs guild/ faction vs faction) with real rewards; and on battlefields that make multi-level strategy, command structures and teamwork vital.
