TERA Free Trial

En Masse Entertainment is now offering a free playable trial for the North American edition of TERA, offering the chance to try Bluehole Studios' MMORPG free of charge. The trial is offered on this page along with a playable demo offered through Gaikai that allows you to check out the game's combat instantly. Here's word on the trial:

The TERA trial is good for seven calendar days from the time a player enters the trial code. Players can level up to eight characters to level 23 on one server during the trial. There are some additional restrictions—trial players cannot vote in TERA elections, for instance—but for the most part, players can enjoy the full benefits of the game during their week of free play. All players need to join the world of TERA is an En Masse account. Then they can enter the code “TERATRIAL” to download and play TERA.

Nothing is stopping any character from "dodging" enemy attacks (as in, the enemies, ALL enemies, DO telegraph attacks and you CAN move out of the way of them). Certain classes get actual dodge skills that render the user invulnerable during the duration of the dodge, and later in the game the warrior gets two dodges. This lets non-tanks effectively tank if they know their enemy and they know how to dodge.

That Kotaku review was right; TERA's combat is literally the only fresh idea in the game. It's just my opinion that one fresh idea alone in a sea of rotten ones isn't enough to elevate the game.

And I did say the presentation is stellar. I've only seen videos of Guild Wars and it looks more like an "art direction" game as opposed to a "visual flair" game like TERA. TERA has your run-of-the-mill wild boars and wolves, sure, but it has a lot of crazy enemies as well that only Asian artists could come up with, and the animations are all very slick (especially the BAMs).
