TERA: Rising – Over Half a Million New Players Since Free-to-Play Launch

TERA
Gameforge announced today that over half a million new users have registered for the game since the move to free-to-play, which brings the total number of players registered for TERA: Rising up to over one million. The company has also opened six new game servers just a few days after the free-to-play launch in order to meet the high demand, so this move to the F2P model seems to really pay off.
Gameforge has also provided us with some stats about the F2P version of TERA. Since the introduction of the free-to-play version, TERA players have created around 1.5 million characters with which they can experience adventures in the world of Arborea. The battle-ready Castanics are the most popular race, with the Humans and High Elves nipping at their heels, while the Warrior enjoys the greatest popularity among the classes, followed by the Sorcerer and the Archer.
With the move to free-to-play, the world of Arborea was expanded by the Crucible of Flame dungeon and a 3-v-3 arena called the Champions’ Skyring. In the future, regular content updates for TERA: Rising will keep on coming.
The next such update, which will be released within the course of this year, will add a new feature to TERA’s political system: Players who belong to a guild will be able to enter into an alliance and vie for supremacy against other alliances on their server.
