The recently announced Tera x PUBG crossover event goes live today, and Tera players, on PC and consoles, will be able to enjoy it for the next 30 days — in other words, until April 5. This collaboration between En Masse Entertainment and Bluehole brings numerous PUBG-themed item drops, crates, and rewards, among other bonuses, to the «true action combat» MMORPG.
The air-dropped loot and surprise crates will only appear in the Northern Arun provinces, so Tera players interested in the promotion should focus their efforts there. What the crates consist of is a surprise until opened — they might contain event rewards, such as Battle Points, or they could hide popori that are waiting to seize the opportunity and attack.
If random crate drops aren’t your thing, you can still earn event-themed rewards and Battle Points by logging in for at least one hour per day during the event as well as completing dungeons or defeating open-world bosses. There will also be special PUBG-themed bosses and enemies, but they only spawn for two hours each day.
Battle Points can then be spent in Tera‘s in-game «PUBG shop,» which features special, PUBG-themed cosmetic items. There are also an array of helpful, event-related consumables available at the shop.
After scouring the lands for monsters and event loot, players should plan to return to Highwatch, Tera‘s hub city. There, they’ll notice the hub looks a bit different, as it’ll have a PUBG theme until the end of the event. This includes the addition of planes and trucks to the area.
This collaboration isn’t the first time the two companies have worked together. In fact, En Masse and the PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of Bluehole, worked together to alpha test and market PUBG back when the game first made its mark on the industry.
Between the rise of Apex Legends and Fortnite, it’s been a while since PUBG has made headlines. The gaming scene is constantly shifting, and developers always need to look for ways to stand out from their competition. Perhaps, instead of competing directly with the battle royale titans, PUBG will now focus on events and special collaborations like this to make its mark.
