Although the official press release for TERA
only came out yesterday
, the game has been in the works for a while, and is preparing for its third closed beta test.
This round of closed beta testing is expected to have 20,000 users, and begin work on quite a bit of new content. Six tribes are currently available, eight different classes, and 88 character models. The new content introduced with CBT3 includes new maps and 68 new techniques. Some new instanced dungeons and a party invite bulletin feature will be added as well, along with generally expected features such as in-game voice chat (provided by Hangame) and the ability to swim, jump, and climb. Look for the addition of Quick Menu and equipment items as well.
