PS4, Xbox One Getting Action MMO Tera This Year

The PC MMO Tera is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this year, publisher En Masse Entertainment announced today. Like the PC edition, the console version will be free-to-play, supported by microtransactions.

Tera bills itself as the only MMORPG that offers “true action combat.” The PS4/Xbox One edition has been “redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up” for gamepad controls, the publisher said.

“The past five years of Tera have been fantastic,” En Masse Entertainment CEO Sam Kim said in a statement. “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.”

More details about Tera’s console edition, including information about a closed beta, will be discussed in the coming months. You can register for a place in the beta here on Tera’s website.

The console edition of Tera is in development at Bluehole, which is the same studio that works on the PC version. The game originally launched in South Korea in 2011 before coming to North America the next year. The game was relaunched in 2013 as Tera: Rising, adopting a free-to-play business model.
