TERA: The Exiled Realm of Arborea for PS4, PC and XONE is an MMORPG with a unique combat system, set in an open world where the economic and politicial structures are shaped by the players. The game was developed by Bluehole Studios.
In TERA, we play as the members of the Valkyon Federation, an alliance of all the races that live in the game’s world. Our task is to protect the Federation from various threats. We will also take part in the internal political strifes, climbing the authority ladder.
Like almost every MMO game, TERA: The Exiled Realm of Arborea for PS4, PC and XONE focuses on character creation and progression. There are eight races available, among which we will find humans and elves, but also some designed specially for the game: the demonic Castanics, giants-related Baraka, the Amani, and the panda bear-resembling Popori. There are twelve classes available: Warrior, Lancer, Berserker, Sorcerer, Slayer, Archer, Priest, Mystic, Reaper, Gunner, Brawler, and Ninja.
What distinguishes TERA: The Exiled Realm of Arborea for PS4, PC and XONE among other MMORPGs is the game’s combat mechanics. The effects of our attacks are based on our positioning aginst the enemies. Thus, in terms of combat, TERA has a lot in common with arcade games. That is why full gamepad compatibility was present in the game since launch day.
TERA: The Exiled Realm of Arborea’s visuals are those of high quality. The game’s environment was created with great attention to detail. The same can be told about the character design and spells and skills effects.
