TERA launches in the US, introduces new skill-based combat style in MMO | Online Gaming For The Win | Scoop.it

What's interesting to me is that this is another attempt at moving out of the traditional WoW-type combat that Swtor imitated. Just like Guild Wars 2 that was announced recently.

“TERA ushers in a new era of true action MMO gameplay that advances the online roleplaying genre,” said Chris Lee, vice president of publishing at En Masse Entertainment. “It’s time to move past yesterday’s repetitive combat mechanics and embrace a more intense and deeply immersive approach to MMO gaming, where every player is actively engaged in skill-based combat and the most savvy players rise to the top through an innovative political system.”
