TERA Closed Beta Registrations Begin
If you have extra time between all those shiny new games in the MMORPG genre you should know that Bluehole Studios has announced the start of the TERA (short for The Exiled Realm of Arborea) closed beta testing phase.
If you want a chance to partake in the beta action you’ll need to get over to the TERA website and sign up! Sadly, if you haven’t already signed up by the time this was posted you won’t be considered for the first wave of beta invites.
Bluehole Studios has released the following FAQ to clear up any confusion that still exists about initial entry into the beta.
TERA’s beta tests, originally called preview events, will start with closed phases requiring invitations to each session and will end with an open beta test just before TERA launches. To add yourself as a potential TERA beta tester for the closed beta tests, you’ll need to sign up.
Do you already receive our TERA newsletter, or have you completed our TERA alpha test application survey? Your email address is already signed up—no need to re-enter it!
A few things to note:
•TERA’s closed beta tests each require a unique invitation. Each invitation will indicate which closed beta test it is valid for. Submitting your email address more than once won’t increase your chances of receiving an invitation.
• Invitations to TERA’s closed beta test will be distributed before each event based on random selection.
• Invitations to TERA’s open beta test will be distributed to everyone who signs up to be a TERA beta tester.
• If you participated in TERA’s alpha test, Community Play Event, or any Focus Group Test, your access will extend to all TERA beta tests.
• We will introduce additional methods of securing an invitation to TERA’s closed beta tests such as official contests and giveaways.
Keep in mind that if you’re accepted into the beta you will be expected to help check the games for any bugs, gameplay issues or technical issues.
Good luck and keep an eye out for that invitation!
