SEATTLE, October 15, 2019 — En Masse Entertainment, a player-driven publisher focused on delivering great games and great service, have released their largest free content update of the year for TERA, their flagship True Action Combat MMORPG on PC. Live on servers now, ‘Skywatch: Aerial Island’ introduces the Exodor Archipelago, a mysterious high-flying zone in the skies, containing four new major terrestrial areas: Rogash’s Garden, Exodor Farmlands, Iridian Wetlands, and Verrak Fortress for high level players to explore and conquer.

All four areas contain a host of varied content for players to engage in ranging from BAMs and field bosses to new quests to new fisheries where players can relax after a long day of slaying; first talk to Ryshan in the Spring Valley Amadjuak Trading Post to receive the ‘The Way to Exodor’ story quest and begin your ascent to new adventures!



In addition to the four new zones, many older dungeons have received updates to bring them in-line with more recently released dungeons in terms of difficulty and rewards. The update also introduces the new Akalath Quarantine dungeon for level 69 players with strong enough gear, sending players into the halls of the Verrak Fortress to investigate a portal leading to a deadly secret weapon. Players will be rewarded for their efforts with new armor and weapons plus enchanting materials to empower them.

Also introduced with this update is the new Card Collection system, granting players a new way to grow and customize their character’s power. Introduced via a quest at level 11, the collection is shared server-wide, so players can start early to earn shards dropped from enemies, or purchase from other players from the auction house. Then combine the shards into full cards that grant passive buffs and collect ‘sets’ that unlock even more powerful passives.

Additional details about the ‘Skywatch: Aerial Island’ update can be found on its dedicated page here:
