TERA Goes Free-to-Play In February

TERA Online

Welcome to the age of the free-to-play massively multiplayer online role-playing game! What game is the latest title to adopt the F2P model? En Masse’s TERA!

It was just announced today that TERA will be shifting from its current subscription model and will become free in February. En Masse has put up an announcement trailer detailing some of the changes that are coming down the line and what it means for both newcomers and veterans. They’re assuring players that the F2P TERA: Rising won’t be a watered-down version of the game and that newcomers will be able to experience TERA in its entirety.

But current subscribers needn’t worry since their accounts will automatically be converted to elite accounts once the change takes place, and whatever time they had paid for will be rounded up to the nearest 30-day mark. The example that they give is if a player has 24 days of paid game time left when the F2P conversion takes place, they’ll be credited with 6 extra days to round it up to 30 days of game time. If they decide not to keep paying $14.99 a month for their elite status, they’ll be marked as founders when they play the game for free.

Here is a breakdown of the account tiers, from the TERA: Rising site:
