The MMORPG TERA will shut down its PC servers on June 30

Gameforge has announced that the action MMORPG TERA: The Exiled Kingdom of Arboreamore commonly called TERAwill shut down PC servers on June 30. TERA was originally released for South Korea in 2011, followed by a global rollout in 2012, developed by Bluehole.

It is important to note that this shutdown announcement relates specifically to the PC version of TERA, confirmed by publisher Gameforge. Console versions released in 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are being released by Krafton instead, who did not specify any shutdown details.

The shutdown message and FAQ can be found below. More information can be found on the game Twitter account.

TERA Shutdown Announcement

Hello TERA players,

Unfortunately, we come with bad news: TERA developers Bluehole have decided to stop working on TERA. After careful consideration, the team in South Korea has come to the conclusion that they are no longer able to provide you with the exciting and satisfying content you deserve. As the last remaining TERA publisher, it is with heavy hearts that we must respect Bluehole’s decision, and will also have to shut down the game. Until then, we’ll be holding some permanent events, in hopes that you can at least enjoy these last few months in Arborea.

After nearly 10 long years, the TERA legend must sadly come to an end. Together we have braved so many perils of Arborea, fought valiantly against the argons, made many new friends, and experienced countless adventures. We want to thank you for your loyalty, for accompanying us on this long journey and for being such an incredible community!

For more details regarding the shutdown of TERA, please read our FAQ.

Our days in Arborea may be numbered, but the next adventure is on the horizon. We hope to see you again soon in one of our other games.

Until there!
The Tera Team

TERA Shutdown FAQ

When will Gameforge stop serving Tera?

  • New TERA account registrations and the ability to purchase Tera Thalers will be disabled on May 31, 2022.
  • TERA Club purchases will also be disabled on May 31, 2022.
  • All TERA servers will be disabled on June 30, 2022 at 10:00 CEST.

Why is Tera closing?

  • After careful consideration, the developers of TERA (Bluehole) have unfortunately made the difficult decision to end development of the game, as they believe they are no longer able to provide the satisfying content that TERA players deserve. Instead, they would like to focus their internal development efforts on other projects.
  • Gameforge has happily welcomed a large community into TERA for almost 10 years now, and would have happily served players even longer, but without the support of the developers this is not possible.

Will there be migration options for players? What will happen to our accounts, currency and progress?

  • As TERA will be shut down globally on PC, no migration option exists. Your TERA Thalers can still be spent until the servers are closed.

Will there be refunds for purchased/remaining currency or TERA Club?

  • No, there will be no refunds for purchases already made, but players can spend their remaining TERA Thalers in the store until the servers close.
  • For TERA Club members who have a long-term membership beyond June 30, 2022, please contact our After-Closure Payments Support Team for a partial refund.

What about my Gameforge account?

  • You will still be able to use your Gameforge account to play other Gameforge games such as NosTale or Swords of Legends Online, even after the TERA servers shut down on June 30, 2022.

What will happen to the TERA forum and social networks?

  • All TERA channels, including the website, forum, and all social media pages, will close shortly after the service closes.
