En Masse Entertainment, a player-driven publisher focused on delivering great games and great service, today released details for the next free content update for their flagship True Action Combat MMORPG, TERA. Set to release on March 13, the Counterpunch update will deliver a one-two punch of content and events for new, returning, and current players. Headlining the content update will be the addition of the brawler class for human males, joining their already released human female counterparts for some equal-opportunity ass-kicking! While the class mechanics remain identical and brawlers will continue to pummel foes with their signature massive powerfists and punch-and-counter combat rhythm, male brawlers will feature their own unique ability animations.
In addition to the male brawler, the Counterpunch update heralds the return of the Ruinous Manor dungeon in both its normal and hard mode formats with fresh balance changes to provide a challenge for players looking for more casual dungeon experience and those who seek to put their skills to the test. Battlegrounds in TERA will be receiving a brand new leaderboard system in the Counterpunch update, with players able to check their personal rankings directly from the main menu to see how they stack up to the competition. Seasons for these leaderboards are currently planned to last for 28 days, giving players a chance for PvP bragging rights each month.
The team at En Masse will be hosting a variety of in-game events coinciding with the release of the Counterpunch update on March 13 –
- March 13 – March 20: Log in to receive a free character slot, bringing the total number of characters per server up to 19!
- March 13: All players logging in will receive a free temporary set of Mechanic Weapon skins, with permanent version available in the store on March 15.
- March 17 – March 18: Log in during the Weekend Warriors Event for a free special lootbox. That’s it, no strings attached!
- March 13 – April 10: Male brawlers created and logged into during this time will receive one free ‘level up box’. The box will contain helpful items for new brawlers including experience boosts, elite status vouchers, free mounts and more!
