Upcoming game launches: Diablo III and TERA

Grab your mystic mace and infernal shield folks, get your TERA gold, Diablo 3 gold, and all your other magical accoutrements ready! Two major games are set to launch in the next couple of weeks.

Launching May 1: TERA

First up is the May 1st North American launch of TERA. To the uninitiated, TERA (short for The Exiled Realm of Arborea) is a game that has all the requisite MMORPG features like quests, raids, crafting, in-game currency (TERA gold), and kick-ass PvP action. But TERA aspires to be more than your run-of-the-mill MMO. Unlike regular MMOs, TERA uses a “non-target battle system” wherein you use your keyboard, mouse or a PC-compatible console controller to aim at your enemies and target them with a cross-hair cursor.

But what is it about? Hold on to your TERA gold, I was just getting to that. According to the official site, TERA is “set in a breathtaking world conjured by two dreaming primal gods” that “will take you over rugged mountains, across searing deserts, and through hazardous jungles.”

Another interesting bit of information is that there are no factions in TERA. “All seven races and eight classes must cooperate to wrench destiny from the gods themselves.” Arm yourself – courtesy of cheap TERA gold, of course – and use your skill to battle monsters and bosses in the sprawling fantasy world.

Standard and Collector’s Editions of TERA will be available in retail stores and online on May 1st. TERA gold will be available at EpicToon.com

Launching May 15: Diablo III

Get your Diablo 3 gold ready, because on May 15th, the Burning Hells will open and unleash darkness into the world! Play any of the five hero classes – Witch Doctor, Monk, Barbarian, Demon Hunter or Wizard – and hold back the darkness!

Blizzard is inviting everyone to the midnight launch of Diablo 3. Gold (ok, freebies) will rain down on those attending the official launch event or tie up events with retail partners all over the world.

From the official press release:

On the night of May 14, key retail partners in the US, UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Poland, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, and the region of Taiwan will welcome gamers who want to be among the first to purchase Diablo III and lock horns with the Lord of Terror.

In the US, the official launch event will be hosted by Blizzard and retail partner GameStop at The Great Wheel Court of the Irvine Spectrum Mall, 71 Fortune Drive, Irvine, CA  92618.

Attendees at the official Diablo III launch events will have the opportunity to purchase the standard edition of the game as well as the Collector’s Edition which contains the following bonus items in addition to the game disc:

  • Exclusive aesthetic artifacts for Diablo III, as well as an exclusive World of Warcraft® in-game fetish shaman pet and exclusive StarCraft® II Battle.net® portraits and army decal
