If you've been curious about TERA
but are unsure of putting your money down or waiting for a lengthy download, then En Masse
has a treat for you today. The studio has partnered with cloud gaming service Gaikai
to offer an instant streaming version
Players can get right into the game with no download by visiting the new TERA
demo page. Massively tested this out and confirmed that the game does indeed launch within seconds and allows you to test drive one of three pre-made characters in this action combat world. There is no cost associated with using this feature.
VP of Publishing Chris Lee
thinks this is a perfect way to spread the word of TERA
: "Gaikai's powerful cloud streaming service gives players a chance to enter the action combat world of TERA
almost instantly. Within seconds of accessing TERA
through Gaikai, players will be immersed in the skill-based combat of a true action MMO where they will experience the depth of a traditional MMO alongside the visceral satisfaction of an action game."
Gaikai offers tailored cloud-based gaming services for studios. We recently spoke with Gaikai's CO Dave Perry
about his company's ambitions and goals within the MMO industry.
