This is probably a good move for En Masse to grow their game, especially considering the fact that at this point, their community on PC isn't likely to show growth with all the stiff competition in the MMO genre nowadays.

Xbox One has titles, similar to PS4, where you don't have to pay to play online. Both require the developer to have their own servers that are in charge of communication, while still adhering to the PSN/XBL trophy/achievement requirement. You do have to pay for Playstation Plus in order to play multiplayer games that aren't hosted by the developer, same goes for Xbox Live. We've been over this in another thread about 80 times. ...

On Topic:

TERA is an "alright" MMO. The biggest issue I have is that there's a great divide between those who pay and those who do not. For the same price as an FFXIV subscription, you're basically getting 2x EXP/Gold with faster dungeon resets (with other features, but these are the ones that cause an "imbalance" between those who pay and those who don't). I probably won't be bothering since I've kept up with FFXIV for a while now and am looking forward to Stormblood. But I might pop into TERA on the PC to see how some of the updates have been.

Plus, you don't have to pay for XBL to play TERA on Xbox One - at least, according to En Masse.

Nope. En Masse has said that if you're part of the beta for TERA on Xbox One, you won't require an Xbox Live subscription - same process as PS4/PS+. Xbox One has the same kind of logic as Playstation 4 does - you pay for 99% of your multiplayer/online stuff, but there are some games that are free to play (online and multiplayer) without a subscription.

Mostly true. Even FFXIV is free to play (if you don't count the purchase of the game + subscription). You don't have to have PS+ to play these games online. Xbox One is hit or miss (DCUO requires XBL but Neverwinter doesn't, for example).

I've heard of this game before, cool that it's coming to consoles, I want something other than shooters to play on console. Gets boring after a while. And from what I found out, you can create your own character, if I'm correct.

Huh. That's neat. I always thought Tera might handle well with a controller anyway.

Wouldn't Tera turn into Neverwinter on the xbox? It was popular for like 5 minutes then died among the community. I like Tera on pc but not sure if it would get enough plays on Xbox based on what I've seen from NW.
