TERA is an "action MMO" with a relatively complex political system, which allows players to gain control of resources through democracy or violent monster-bashing. It's an accepted but little spoken truth that our own Nick Clegg only elevated himself to the position he fails to enjoy today by grinding rats for hours on end. Forget all that though and ask yourself one simple question: do you want the chance to join TERA's upcoming closed beta? Applications are now open and anyone registering before 11:30 CET, 13th January will have a chance to be one of the first 1,000 entrants. That's 10:30 in Blightlyland by my reckoning. More passes will be given out as the beta progresses. Europeans, sign up here. Americans here. Video below.
My favourite bit was when the camera panned around the party, or maybe the logo. It really is a rather pointless video unless you haven't just been told about the beta signup, I guess. But you have, so sorry about that.
If you actually want to know more, we've written quite a bit on the game in the past.
