"TERA" gets player-versus-player battlegrounds in the long-awaited Argon Queen update.
The latest update for massively multiplayer online game TERA will introduce player-versus-player battlegrounds mode on August 22nd, publisher En Masse Entertainment announced today.
The "Argon Queen" update will be the largest to date. Players can enter in real-time battles against each other in 15-on-15 matches, shown in the trailer below, that will be playable across servers. Battlefield navigation will not only include pursuing other players, but taking down massive monsters and collecting unique in-game loot as well.
The update will also add a new dungeon leading into a battle with the titular Argon Queen, a 20-person raid experience, and new character abilities for the Lancer and Warrior classes.
TERA released for PC in May. A lawsuit between Korean publisher NCSoft and En Masse was recently settled, in which NCSoft dropped charges claiming En Masse had stolen assets from Lineage 3 and used them in TERA.
