TERA – Korea and Japan servers announce F2P conversion


TERA logo 2
Major announcement from Asia, as NHN, the publisher of both TERA Korea and Japan, announced earlier today the full conversion to Free-to-Play mode early next year with no content restrictions. TERA Korea will officially enter F2P come 10th January, while TERA Japan in mid-February. And yes, there will be a cash shop, including materials to boost equipment upgrades.
 
TERA 1
If I read correctly, the Japan server has already gone Free-to-Play today, although the full conversion (with item shop) will only end in mid-February. Listed below are some of the differences, but do note that there are many other changes not listed below. Subscribers will get many more benefits in terms of utility features.
 
TERA Korea
Korea server
 
Free-to-Play date: 10th January 2013
Free character slots: 3
Storage: 72 slots (1 page)
Dungeon cool-down: Twice the normal time
 
TERA Japan
Japan server
 
Free-to-Play date: Mid-February (players can play free now, although there is no cash shop yet)
Free character slots: 4
Storage: 72 slots (1 page)
Dungeon cool-down: ?
 
TERA 3
The conversion for both servers will also see a new “Federation” update, with the core focus on enhancing guild, political and PvP features (along with new equipment, dungeons, maps etc).
 

It is reported that the “experience server” for TERA Korea saw an increment of 25% in players, hence NHN decided to roll out this full conversion.

    In a way I knew this was going to happen just from the signs, but to be honest I don’t hope this means that Bluehole Studio actually are struggling with money.

    Personally I still plan to return to Tera since I had a great time there and I’m still half way to max level. I would love to hear something from Bluehole studio though, and it would be nice to get an insight on what their future plans are with Tera now.
    Ofcourse F2P can also be a good opportunity for them, but I’m just wondering if they are going to support the game 100% or if they are already looking into a new project.

    And yes, there will be a cash shop, including materials to boost equipment upgrades.

    Another misinformation/half-truth. Basicaly yes, only way to pay for masterwork alkahest will be T-Cat coins. But T-Cats will be tradeable and you can put it in auction house also. This model very similar as NA TERA’s Chronoscroll or EVE Online’s P.L.E.X.
