En Masse Entertainment has announced that their highly acclaimed MMORPG, Tera, is coming to consoles later this year. On PC, the game already has over 25 million users all over the globe. The game will be coming to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 sometime later this year. With it comes an uncompromising conversion of the game’s True Action Combat. The PC version of the game already supports a gamepad, but even so the developers are completely redesigning the control scheme. The user interface is also being redone for the console version to take into account the controller and viewing distances.

The developers have a closed beta planned for the console versions of the game. If you would like a chance to participate, you can sign up at http://tera.enmasse.com/consolebeta. Lastly, if you’re going to be at PAX East 2017, you have a chance to meet the En Masse Entertainment Team. They will be there from March 10 to Sunday, March 12 in booth #19125.

EN MASSE ENTERTAINMENT TO BRING TRUE ACTION COMBAT MMORPG TERA TO HOME CONSOLES IN 2017

 Critically Acclaimed Free-To-Play MMORPG with over 25 Million Registered Users Worldwide, Coming to PlayStation®4 and Xbox One Later This Year

 

SEATTLE, March 10, 2017En Masse Entertainment, a player-driven publisher focused on delivering great games and great service, today announced that their flagship MMORPG, TERA, will be making its long-anticipated debut on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, in 2017. The home console version of TERA will be fully free-to-play and include the entirety of TERAs expansive MMORPG game world as well as an uncompromised conversion of the skill-based True Action Combat the franchise is known for.

 

As the only MMORPG with True Action Combat, TERAs real-time and skill-based gameplay is the perfect fit for home consoles. While the game already supports a gamepad on PC, the console version’s control scheme is being redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up to ensure a responsive and visceral combat experience. The game’s user interface is also being completely rebuilt for consoles with the controller and living room viewing distances in mind.

 

“The past five years of TERA have been fantastic,” said En Masse Entertainment CEO Sam Kim. “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. Everyone at En Masse Entertainment and Bluehole is putting an incredible amount of effort into making sure that console players have the best TERA experience possible, and can enjoy the wide range of content the game has to offer.”

 

The En Masse Entertainment team will be at PAX East 2017 in Booth #19125 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center from Friday, March 10 through Sunday, March 12, so be sure to swing by for a chance to chat with the team!

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
