TERA: Free-to-Play model friendly to Founder Status


With TERA’s F2P model just round the corner, En Masse released some interesting infos about the limitations and bonuses of each player status will have. TERA’s F2P model doesn’t differ from any other popular F2P MMO out there in terms of player status. It will have 3 tiers in total – the subs, the founders (players who bought the game in the first place) and the free players. Surprisingly, TERA’s F2P system favours the Founder status by giving them signifally bonuses to a certain areas of the game and in some cases better than subscribed status.

This is a smart move from En Masse to try to get old players back to the game. In comparison with recently released SWTOR F2P model, TERA seems to head to the right direction and clearly show their intentions about where the game is heading, right from the beginning. Bellow is a detailed list about all the limitations and bonuses each of the 3 player status will get at the launch of F2P.
