TERA Online, an MMORPG, announced it will go free-to-play this February. Following the trend of MMOs like Dungeons and Dragons Online, Stars Wars: The Old Republic, and Planetside 2, TERA Online is doing away with a subscription fee and allowing all to join. Instead of monetizing by restricting content to free players, TERA Online is taking the unique approach of adding content for players to pay for, such as vanity and convenience items. This means new players will get the whole package subscribers are getting right now, which is awesome.
TERA is praised for its combat system and beautiful environments. Now anyone can see that for themselves.
