If you’ve been keeping tabs on Bluehole Studios’ TERA for the PS4 and Xbox One, you may have remembered that there was a closed beta not too long ago where gamers were able to play-test the game ahead of its full release. Well, Bluehole and En Masse Entertainment have an open-beta test coming for TERA set to get underway for PS4 and Xbox One gamers on March 9th. You won’t have long to play, though, as it will only last through the weekend up until March 11th.
MMOS.com spotted the news along with a trailer featuring a look at TERA running on the home consoles. You can check it out below.
The trailer for the Western release of TERA on the home consoles avoids all of the sexy female classes and costumes.
Bluehole’s MMO was notorious for having some high-end boob physics and some extremely curvaceous options for the character creator, very similar to NCSoft’s Blade & Soul.
Both games made waves back in the day for really elevating the quality of in-game graphics while giving gamers a truly worthwhile fan-service experience.
Bluehole, however, decided to go a step beyond simply having graphics that would encourage a lot of gamers to play with one-hand. They added a non-targeting combat system that allowed gamers to execute hack-and-slash, fast-paced combos and skill-scaled tactics during battle. This was during a time when non-targeting was all the rage in the South Korean MMO space, with games like Vindictus and Continent of the Ninth Seal really capturing the attention of the MMO crowd.
You can look for the open beta client to go live on the Xbox Store and the PlayStation Store starting March 9th. Be sure to mark the date so you’re well aware of when they open beta gets underway.
En Masse has yet to state when the full launch will take place but it’s obviously coming soon.
