En Masse Entertainment has announced that TERA’s upcoming Argon Queen update, the biggest update the game has seen to date, will be released to players free of charge on August 22nd.
The Argon Queen update will see the introduction of an all-new PvP Battlegrounds mode, which provides competitive players with an environment in which they can wage battles against one another in ferocious 15-on-15 matches - even across servers. TERA’s Battlegrounds mode will pit two teams against each other in a battle for three bases to determine territorial dominance.
Players never know quite what they will face in Battlegrounds, but the general rule is pretty simple: if it moves, kill it. While opposing players are clashing in real-time action combat, BAMs (TERA’s famed Big-Ass Monsters) and other in-game creatures will be present on the battlefield as well, forcing players to make on-the-fly strategic decisions while in conflict. Special in-game loot will be up for grabs, so players will want to be on top of their game to cash in. Weekly rankings will also allow players to track their guild’s progress as well as those of their rivals.
In addition to the new Battlegrounds mode, the Argon Queen update will also feature new character abilities, an all-new 20-person raid experience, new dungeons culminating in a confrontation with the Argon Queen and more.
