At the end of June, the action MMORPG TERA was discontinued worldwide. Officially, it was said that the developers will no longer release new content. However, TERA Classic will now be released in new regions in return. The game has been around for a while in China and Korea, but has only attracted a few fans.
What is TERA Classic all about?
Now the developer Playpark announced the release of TERA Classic for the Southeast Asia region. The game is scheduled to be released in 2022 and will also be localized in English. In addition, there should be no region lock, so you can play the mobile MMOPRG anywhere if you want.
Playpark is known for releasing Korean games in Southeast Asia. They will also distribute the upcoming Noah’s Heart there.
Here’s the last quest from TERA that you couldn’t play:
TERA Classic contains elements from the old MMORPG, but does a lot of things differently
How is TERA Classic structured? TERA Classic uses the same game world as the PC MMORPG and offers similar classes – however, there is only one playable race and only one playable gender per class.
Otherwise, it offers a lot of what players despise about mobile MMORPGs:
- The interface is cluttered and blinking everywhere
- There is auto-run and auto-fight, which detracts from TERA’s good combat system
- The capabilities are severely limited compared to the PC version
- The world is not that open
- It’s Free2Play, although it’s not entirely clear what you can buy in the shop
This video from MMOByte offers you an insight into TERA Classic:
When will TERA Classic be released? There is currently no fixed release date. You also have to be prepared that playing on the SEA version could be associated with lag, after all you are connecting to Asia.
