- MMOBOMB EXCLUSIVE: TERA’s New Flying Mounts Trailer and Interview
It won’t be long now and the Secrets & Shadows update will be upon us in the free-to-play MMORPG TERA. This weekend, I sat down with Patrick Sun, Producer, to get the scoop on the latest update AND scored an MMOBOMB EXCLUSIVE with the first look at flying mounts in the above video! Check out the video and then sit back and read up on the upcoming patch.
Magicman (MM): Patrick, it’s nice to catch up with you as always. For readers that don’t know you, can you introduce yourself and tell us a bit about what you do day to day on TERA?
Patrick Sun (PS): Hello MMOBomb readers, my name is Patrick Sun and I am the Producer for TERA at En Masse Entertainment. As Producer, my responsibilities on the game span a wide range, including serving as our point of contact with the game’s developers, planning and designing events, scheduling and preparing game updates, releasing new items, etc.
MM: So… Secrets & Shadows is the latest update coming to TERA in the West and we can expect it this month. Give us the overview of all the new features coming.
PS: Secrets & Shadows is a highly-anticipated and content-packed update for TERA. It features a new playable character class in the Ninja, the addition of flying mounts which you saw the video for today, three new end-game dungeons along with two new end-game gear sets, and a whole whack of new additions, changes, and fixes.
MM: You mentioned flying mounts. Why now for that feature? TERA’s been around for a while and resisted the call to fly. What makes now the right time?
PS: TERA’s developers, Bluehole Inc., and En Masse Entertainment are always looking for new ways to surprise and entertain players. TERA’s beautiful graphics and game world have always been one of its defining features, so we figured why not let players view it from a new perspective while also adding a fun new gameplay system and means of travel.
