I will play to try the combat system. Too bad it looks kinda low budget. It's almost like seeing your favorite super hero movie made on $10 million...

i played the beta its pretty fun and pretty polished (makes swtor look like the turd it is) but its still got too much of the old mmo formula for me and I think it will get boring quick, especially with how they did the pvp. waiting on end of nations and xcom.

This game does look promising, I hope for its own sake, that the game offers more than revolutionary combat. Meaning, I want to see a deep storyline.

I'll be fully occupied by Diablo III this year on PC and some Starcraft II. Nothing else. :p

every single additional bit of this game I see drags me further away from it. Still waiting for GW2 quality

I'll try the beta. If I like it, and if my PC can handle it at reasonable levels (I'm more concerned about this part) I'll buy it. If I don't, oh well.

This look's like a free to play game, I wonder how long before it becomes another free to play.

Woooooow!!! This looks REALLY REALLY great, and I don't remember myself giving such a compliment to an MMO in a very long time..

i suggest people try the game before giving an opinion to what it "looks like".

@cjburnfist "First off, allow me to say, WoW and Tera are not the same and Tera is original as any other MMO." So it basically takes ideas and gameplay elements from other MMO's and puts small twists on them to make them just a little bit different?

"alot of people complain about this game being like all other korean style game.well tbh it is.all korean style mmorpg." This game combine both west and east design.... Only the races are not Tera breaks finaly the cursed korean mmo stigma....no more KK killing mobs to get a lvl after 2 days.... Tera doesnt have this kind of grind its all quest based exactly like The exp u get is fast just like swtor if not faster. If u except the quests tera is a awesome mmo with top notch graphics and combat.

Who else was reminded of Ultima Weapon from Final Fantasy 7 and 8 when they saw the initial fight?

@b_gab333 People also complain about Pandarens. A majority of the people that internet are apparently so bored with their lives they need to complain about everything they can in hopes of feeling important. The funny thing is.. they will play it anyway..

alot of people complain about this game being like all other korean style game.well tbh it is.all korean style mmorpg have an anime style look.and most of the people still compare them to WoW(wich they still consider being the ultimate mmropg.) tbh all korean, japanese games look like an Anime. and for me WoW looks like a cartoon.just saying Anime(12+)>Cartoon(3+).

As long as its halfway decent and you enjoy it who cares if its better or the next wow people should stop comparing MMO's to WOW. WOW is a game that is established been strong for years but when it first started is was broad and buggy.

@Deano I agree with most you said . But with Diablo 3 and Guild wars 2 aroudn the corner , yet another solid expansion for WOW fans... Im wondering how TERA will do... Not good. Noone willing to pay anymore. P2P mmorpgs should reconsider. Keep it free OR deliver something way better than WoW. Otherwise P2P model ...is the wrong way to go.

Deano

to everyone calling this unoriginal, please tell me what mmo is original anymore. It's like nothing is good enough anymore for gamers, the old republic was suppose to be a "wow killer". It had a few hundred million pumped into it but still has enough people calling it a boring game. Heard the same thing about rift. you either support other mmo's or just resign yourself to playing WoW for the next 10 years because nothing is going to top it.

Im playing tera since early beta tests, and all I can say that Tera will be the only mmorpg ill play for years... do not try tera if you want to keep playing any other tab+click mmorpg...

Dont' care for the art direction....I mean play this game for 6 months or get the Guild wars collectors edition. I'm sure it's going to be a fun game but the sub base wont' be there.

looks like just another utterly unoriginal korean fantasy mmorpg to me, with boobs over substance, poor presentation, uninspiring mechanics and atrociously boring combat, that will join the likes of Aion, Rift and other formerly-hyped-games-soon-to-be-forgotten-about and .. are they releasing it as pay to play model ? I mean, seriously ?

another japanese-style crap game with big swords and small "heroes".Bhaah!

ye but i still think that it is better to have bad trailer and good game,then great trailer and fail game. Sadly enmass marketing is terrible indeed.!

looks great,though i still prefer blade and soul(whenever that is coming out)

Its sad.... Tera is a very nice game ( Im on beta test since CB1)... but Enmasse marketing is bad... This video do not demonstrate the feeling of this game

This trailer does not give the feel of the game. Take for example Skyrim trailer, which was great, even now I still enjoy watching it.

This has failure written all over it to me, for the reasons many have given here. The cartoony nature of it with oversized weapons and bodies way out of proportion just looks bad, and prevents my being able to become immersed in the setting. It looks to cater more to console player than to PC gamers. I don't know why everyone keeps trying to clone WoW and add just enough spin to it to grab a bunch of short-term players on launch day. I also don't understand why all these game cater to grammar school kids. One of these days I hope one of these developers will realize that the average gamer is 30 years old.

Action combat should be about both aiming and moving. Lots of moving. Not aiming, while being rooted by the animations. In a way, GW2 and TSW look like they have more action combat than Tera, simply because you can move and attack at the same time, in those games.

realism with magic spells and monsters...ya that makes sense.

Sorry - just not into over-sized weapons and cartoony characters. I can suspend a ton of disbelief but give me weapons with a smidge of realism.

Pretty much one of the worst pre-launch trailers I've seen. Been playing the beta and it's fun but En Masse really needs to step it up in the marketing department if this game is going to stand a chance against other current and upcoming MMOs...

Can we stop pretending this game is going to be good? Ive played all the betas so far, and not impressed in the slightest. This will be one of those you either love it or hate it games.

Hey it's Lineage III. How come NCsoft wasn't able to put them out of business? The monster looks like it came from PSO. What wasn't stolen in this game?

AzatiS

Well at least give it some kudos. It has mega polished combat , is the graphic king of mmorpgs easily and game overall has some of the most insane regions and animations youll see even in single player games. I said it before... The only thing makes me deny its purchase is... subscription model...

What a stupid script/premise, this entire Trailer makes little sense...

On its own, not compelling at all.

Not for me. I am not a fan of over sized monsters and little people swinging around weapons bigger than they are. I like my fantasy a bit more realistic. (That's a joke) I give it points for eye candy but it's not for me.

AzatiS

Awesome game but with subscription model i dont see do good goin against free to play games like Torchlight 2 / Diablo 3 / Guild wars 2 and new WoW expansion (p2p but a heavy competitor).... If it was free i definitly would try it.

I was lucky(errr unlucky) enough to get into beta. The game has the same elements of other mmos. however the combat is a nice change of pace. Everyone rolls a half naked female and the lore is absolutely lame. But all in all not too bad and not for everyone.
