TERA Announced

Leading Korean MMO company Bluehole Studio announces the formation of En Masse Entertainment, a new publisher focused on bringing Korean MMOGs to western audiences, saying the company is comprised of veterans of Blizzard, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, ArenaNet, and NCsoft. They also reveal the first project they are bringing westward is a PC MMORPG titled TERA. They offer a brief overview of TERA, saying former Aion producer Brian Knox, overseeing Western development of the game. Word is: "TERA is an innovative MMORPG with rich graphics and animations where players fully control their characters through the game’s dynamic battle system. Player actions in TERA can change the balance of power in a world where six races try to work together for the common good. The game, which is currently in development for PC, will launch in Korea this year and in Western markets thereafter."

"Innovative MMO" and Korea do not belong in the same paragraph. Innovative for a Korean MMO is for it to not feel like a constant grindfest.

Heh! Exactly what I was thinking! It will look great, but the game-play will be incredibly dull... Sleeping

If you're so jaded with formulaic games, try Second Life.

Isn't that pretty much MySpace, the MMO?

Oh...yay. That's exactly what the Western market needs, more snore inducing grindfests with pseudo-furry characters, 12 year old kids with 10 foot tall hair and 32 foot long swords and a game story that always consists of "you're a humble farmer/peasant/lower class denizen who has been divinely marked for a world changing destiny".

I love the reminders that I'm not the only one who hates that asian style crap.

Also.. you'd think that WoW is a good example that graphics aren't that important for a good MMORPG. Problem with great looking games is that they look great on high-end machines and absolutely crap on low systems. WoW's partially such a success because even people with a 7 year old computer can play it with decent graphics.

To be fair, Aion went for the somewhat more Western "You used to be powerful/important but then you lost your memories because of magic/nearly dying/dying." setup.
