Eager to have all of the gameplay of TERA in the palm of your hand with TERA M? You might want to be a little more cautious with that excitement. Steparu has been checking the game out and has concluded that however much fun the game may be, it relies very aggressively on pursuing microtransactions, to the point that level 40 on up is largely a paywall. You’ll be in a bad place if you haven’t bought anything, and that’ll make the game difficult if not impossible to keep playing.
Comparisons are made to the gameplay of Lineage 2 Revolution, and it is of course altogether possible that the business model will be tweaked or revised before the game launches in the west. Still, while we’ve embedded some videos past the break, this may serve to temper your enthusiasm slightly. Or it might instill with you the joy of knowing you shall be an ultra-whale. We’re not going to judge.
