    Will there be cross play? because the PC version could us it. Having ps4 or xbone players running around filling up the empty zones would be nice. Game feels so empty now, came back after 4 years away and I find TERA devoid and kind empty, especially while lvling up my Elin Gunner, wtf happened?

    There won't be. PS4 and Xbox can't crossplay with each other due to Sony politics, and this version will be some versions behind for a while.

    Well RIP TERA, I hate to be negative like that but, with that one MMO Bless Online coming out and Black Desert pretty much being the new King. I don't see much hope for TERA in the long run; especially when I am hearing about ANOTHER server merger. I don't really see many people on, it looks like most of the servers have been merged, and well. Its very tough to want to give this game money when you have to spin the loot box to get what you want (the phoenix mounts, they always hat loot boxes but you had the choice of the loot box, the character bound mount version, or the account bound version. Now it seems there is just the loot box for anything new) or deal with shady people to trade EMP for gold to buy it off the market.

    Way I see it TERA needs something BIG to bring people back. IDK what but makes me sad to see TERA in this state since I played the game at when it first became free to play, all the way up to the Reaper update and a little beyond. Its almost depressing to lvl a new toon because you almost literally see no one anywhere while lvling and it makes the game seem not so much like an mmo anymore....just my opinion on what I see

    Just for what it's worth, there's been no actual talk about a server merger. BHS has talked about looking into cross-server LFG, and if they do implement that, it would probably remove one of the biggest hurdles that cause people to keep requesting mergers. I'm not saying that there won't ever be server mergers (obviously it could happen at some point, though I sincerely hope they address a few important issues first), but people appear to be spreading rumors that have no basis.

    It's been like that ever since the game launched to be honest, other than the first few weeks after each new class is released. The vast majority of the game is in instances, so after you go through leveling the open world is more like a hub. They probably could do more to make the open world useful, but that alone isn't really an indication of server population. (And, honestly, this trait is one shared with a whole lot of modern MMOs.)

    To people commenting on the FPS, the footage was filmed in the middle of the barren overworld while fighting one (1) BAM. Pretty much any PC with an Intel CPU could easily pass 80 fps under those conditions. What I want to see is a dungeon. Run a steady 60 fps in Kalivan's Dreadnaught on console hardware with the rain going everywhere, then we'll talk. Hell, I'd be impressed if they could run Timescape's second boss at more than 20 fps, but that content's removed. Hell, do Fraywind Canyon on a console. See what happens.

    Don't get me wrong, it looks nice and all, but let's just keep it real. It's rarely the overworld people complain about when they bring up FPS issues. It's the dungeons and battlegrounds that truly push the engine and the system.

    I have seen PC with intel core i5 @ 3GHz not being capable to run at 60 fps in the same conditions as the video in this thread.

    If you consider the CPU speed from PS4 and their amount of RAM I would say that we have in that video can be good news for PC players because that would mean a hope for optimization in our end.

    I've got 80+ fps in such areas with an old toaster so I'm not particularly impressed at the ps4 either.
    Now show me rk9 without a freeze and fps drops at the start and I'll stare in awe!

    GTX 550 Ti also says hello and breezes through the same zone at the cap of 80 FPS.

    The two things that make this possible are exactly the barren area, and they DID redo the UI. This one, is what brings me hope of it actually having future on the console. We all know from ages ago that the UI was and still is the biggest FPS hog on TERA, drawing lots of cute Elin thighs on frilly maid outfits spamming dance parties is a breeze on any modern graphics card, heck the PS4 could likely do it fine too (I guess it's about as powerful as my 550 Ti GPU wise), but not when you have ALL DEM NAMES AND GUILD LOGOS AND TITLES showing up hogging the CPU until it burns to it's misery.

    Well, there is still hope that they redo the UI engine for PC too when they get it all sorted on the console version.

    2015 was an horrendous year, some players did everything in their end to kill the game, arguing their move was only a protest against the gender lock but they only were griefing against new players.

    It ended with the loss from thousands of players in a couple of months in several servers and put in the eyes of the gamer comunity that Tera at that time didn't take disciplinary actions against players with toxic behaviours.

    The pretty much that and the Instance Matching killed open world activities.
