Kakao Games announced today that it has secured the global publishing rights, including South Korea, for TERA Frontier, a mobile MMORPG based on the popular TERA IP by Bluehole. The developer is Korea-based Red Sahara Studio, which worked on mobile games such as Velator: Immortal Invasion. If you missed the previous news, Red Sahara Studio is now part of Bluehole after an acquisition, and is now part of the new KRAFTON alliance.
TERA Frontier is powered by using Unreal Engine 4, with promises of the massive world view of the original PC game being implemented along with a focus on party play based on large-scale PVE battles and team PVP for the mobile environment. No specific details about TERA Frontier were revealed, but Kakao Games claimed it will launch in 2019. Let’s hope the game will have better luck than Netmarble’s TERA M, which severely under-performed.
