Im not gonna say I know the whole story from an official standpoint, cause I dont but I will tell you what I have heard. Bluehole Studios, a korean MMO developer, are all former members of the Lineage III dev team. They all left for reasons unknown (the rumors are varied) and formed their own company and began deloping a new game using the Lineage III engine/coding, all or in part.

The game that resulted from this is T.E.R.A. and it's pretty sweet. Fly has been ogling trailers, vids and screen of this game for a week now and finally I took a real good look and yeah, Im pretty amazed. Not only are the graphics beautiful but the game play is pretty unique.


Facing the mob and repeatedly pressing a skill button is no longer exciting.
Even the unprecedented hit title, WoW, doesn't deviate from the traditional combat system.

TERA introduces a ground-breaking innovation to the MMORPG combat system.

From the start, the company hoped to realize a combat system that would set a new global standard. After careful consideration, it was decided that TERA's fight sequences should closely resemble real fight scenes. Hence, TERA will introduce omni-directional attacks, where distance and direction must be coordinated for weapons and spells to work; moreover, healers must continuously take new battle positions to cast spells. Also, depending on body weight ratio between a mob and player, an enemy hit will register a fall-back reflect. These are some of the innovative features in TERA.

Also, unlike games that claim to be a MMORPG by emphasizing action-style gameplay, TERA does not utilize zoning (section loading). All users will seamlessly move throughout the world, sharing a singular combat experience. Moreover, the foundation for the innovative combat system originates from the robust client/server technology. This breakthrough technology is one of the many revolutionary features developed by Bluehole to enhance the end-user experience.

The targeting system looks like something I would really be interested in. I read around the internet that it is scheduled for beta release this summer but no real dates. If anyone can translate some information from the official TERA site, I would appreciate it.

    Was anyone successful to register to this game?
    I'm always failing, but I don't know why. I'm gonna try a korean proxy later. Maybe they use any GeoIP service.
