This is the game made with Lineage 3's code right?

No. 4 developers communicated code and company secrets that worked on the canceled L3 project and violated the law after leaving NCSoft which in S. Korea is a huge no no during the development stage. 2 went to jail for 2 years. All 4 are barred from the industry for 2 additional years. The fines are huge! They are no longer on this project or employed. The game had a complete rewrite. They are using the UT III engine.

These screenshots aren't that new, seen them about a month ago on both MMORPG and the Tera website :\

This game looks interresting. Perhaps not as interresting graphics as other korean mmo's. It looks a bit brownish... But the gameplay seems fun enough.

check the website... this is basically Aion 1.5 graphics, which for all intents and purposes, is really nice stuff. If this game is actually as good as it looks I might need to crack open the puter and start replacing stuff. Where's that Newegg credit card?

While i am not complaining one about the look of the avatars, lots of other people are. Ignorant tube(youtube) and many other sites are lashing out at this game because of its...*ahem*... clothing set choice for females and its projected targeted audience.

Some in the news have even called this title, "soft porn" because of the female movements and dress.

Hey, i am a JAFO at this point in time, waiting.

whether they look slutty or not (and they do...but i don't care/mind), i see tera as essentially soul calibur smashed into an mmo, which fascinates me immensely. i've been in wow since its inception, and have played a number of other mmo's since here and there. but i've always been competitive with tekken, soul calibur, etc...and after a while, the old school method of mmo action bars gets tiring and feeling archaic, not to mention limiting in terms of gameplay. if tera delivers what it promises, (and to an extent blade and soul too), then i'm all for mmo's evolving in that direction.

TERA is getting designed by the original core of E&G. Those guys created the early Lineage 2 with the incredible design it has (one world with no instances, siege wars with a thousand people or more, a political system where players controll the server, a full player driven economy with money and gear sinks, preventing inflation...).

After NCsoft split, those guys left or got kicked - as we all know Lineage 2 broke and Aion failed because NC couldn't use the code.

TERA has all the creativity that Lineage 2 and Aion are lacking ever since and the subtitle "The Exiled Realm of Arborea" tells a lot about who the designers actually are...
