En Masse Entertainment, a player-driven publisher focused on delivering great games and great service, is celebrating the fifth anniversary of their flagship True Action Combat MMORPG, TERA, which launched to critical praise on May 1, 2012 and continues to see strong success with over 26 million registered players from around the world. To mark the momentous milestone, En Masse is activating a broad array of special in-game events throughout the month of May, including the Velik’s Fate content update for the game, which is scheduled to launch on May 9.
Players who log into the game during May receive a free pair of Fifth Anniversary Wings to show off their dedication to TERA. Be sure to log in as these wings will only be available during the event and will not be sold in the game shop!
A brand-new Anniversary Token Shop with a rotating weekly inventory of items not normally available for sale has also been added to the game for the month of May. Anniversary Tokens are earned in-game by participating in PvP battlegrounds and PvE dungeons with different content highlighted each week in the in-game calendar. Players will also have a rare chance to win cosmetic items normally only available in the game’s online store via drops in highlighted PvP battlegrounds and from the final boss in highlighted PvE dungeons.
Rounding out the month of events, TERA Community Manager Sean “Spacecats” Gibbons will be hosting in-game quiz events across all servers throughout the month, rewarding astute fans who correctly answer questions with Anniversary Tokens and other in-game prizes. Players should watch for news posts, in-game announcements, and their welcome window calendar for when Spacecats will be visiting their respective servers for a chance to participate and show off their TERA knowledge!
“It’s been an incredible five years for TERA and we didn’t want to celebrate this achievement with just one day. We decided to celebrate with our community throughout the entire month,” said En Masse Entertainment CEO Sam Kim. “We’re looking forward to many more milestones with our loyal community, including welcoming new console players later this year. As far as we’re concerned, we’re still just getting warmed up, with much more to come!”
The Velik’s Fate content update also launches on May 9, bringing two brand-new dungeons, Velik’s Hold and Velik’s Sanctuary, for players to explore. These high-level dungeons feature several challenging opponents, including the new boss, the god Lakan. Players who conquer these new challenges will be rewarded accordingly, with all-new armor and weapon sets!
