    Finally revealed: The release date of TERA! 17.01.2012 By: Raven

    Today marks the day you have all been waiting for. We can finally reveal the release date for our beloved game. TERA will launch in Europe on Thursday, 3rd of May 2012.
    Depending on your favourite choice, you’ll be able to buy a boxed copy or digital download version of TERA. We’ll reveal more details on pre-order, digital download and boxed versions in the near future.
    Until then, we still encourage you to sign up for our beta! There will be a couple of tests before the release of the game and thus a lot of opportunities to check out TERA in detail. Everyone who previously tested TERA in 2011 in Europe will automatically be invited for the upcoming tests as well. Keys will also be provided during special contests, giveaways and through media partners. Details on the different beta tests will be released soon, so stay tuned.
    Still not enough? Well then, subscribe to our YouTube channel, join us on Facebook and Twitter and in our forums to become a part of the growing community of TERA and maybe another chance to receive a beta key in the future, who knows?

    I just can't convince myself to be excited about these news, I would've been 4-5months ago :S

    To be honest, I don't think they could've planned it any better. This is in between the big MMO's and also away from most big non-MMO releases, still I have no incentive to play it myself.

    I was thinking the opposite :p I don't think they could have planned it any worse, because Swtor will still be quite active and May means in the middle of TSW and GW 2 (if its a Q2 launch for it) meaning I dont see any room for Tera. If we get a confirmed Q2 GW 2 release, I say they should have postoned yet again tbh till the fall.

    (not to mention the ton of strong SP games, and stuff like Diablo 3 coming out to compete with)

    If they sort the open beta well and the game is good enough its careface when its released. Competing with non-MMO games is like meh, who cares about a SP game after a week of playing. Perhaps not D3 (but then again soon TM) but GW2 I predict much later this year tbh. Also, this release is just 2 years late :<

    Unsure whether to play this for now.

    I doubt you will see GW2 Release until Q3 or Q4 of 2012.

    It's finally coming out, lets hope the English publishers don't ruin it.

    It might hit the same time as mists of pandaria, which could kill it before it even gets going.

    The next WoW expac will be in November/December time. For TERA I'd be worried about TSW, GW2 and Diablo3 tbh, any of which releasing within a month (either side) of TERA will kill it!

    You sure about that wow date? They just put in the deathwing fight last month so that should be the last of the cata patches. Unless they have some filler material I would have thought July at the latest.

    WoTLK had the dragon added after arthas was killed. I expect similar.

    I'm just going by when they have released previous expacs, it's been the end of the year for all 3 (TBC was due in December but Slid at the last minute into January).

    I would have thought Pandaria would be sooner too. All the "pre-release" stuff if you want to call it that has all been patched in. All it needs now is the zones, the class and the pokemon.

    I am going to re-sub it and play pokemon battles only!!!
