Subscription fees got you down? En Masse Entertainment is now offering a one-week trial for its MMORPG TERA that lets you build up to eight separate characters to level 23 on one server. (That makes it sound like a dare.) While there are some other restrictions, it's not like this is costing you anything to try.
Patrick has been playing the game and recently shared his thoughts. Despite the more interesting quests being held until just around the trial's level cap, I think it'll be worth the time and energy to download for those of you who have yet to give TERA's combat a spin.
On a scarier note, En Masse says that players are averaging "nearly" 4.5 hours of game time daily. "That's more time than the average American spends watching TV each day," notes the press release. We're doomed as a species, aren't we?
