Action MMORPG TERA is exactly three months away from its full launch, and En Masse Entertainment has pre-release plans: More specifically, the game's beta periods, pre-order bonuses and collectors edition have all been detailed.

The Collector's Edition, which was only alluded to in the past, will come in both a digital and a physical edition. The latter, priced at $79.99 US, is bundled with a letter of Marque, a canvas world map, a field guide, a compass from the Valkyon Federation, and a soundtrack. The digital edition will be priced at $59.99 US, and both will get 30 day fee trial period, plus some in-game items: a regal frostlion mount, a level 15 Velik's Bloodstone Necklace and a level 40 Shakan's Bloodstone Necklace.

The regular edition will cost just $49.99. Everyone who pre-orders the title will be invited into the closed beta tests, plus the Head Start period just prior to launch. Closed beta tests will launch late next week, in the following five periods: February 10th-12th, February 24th-26th, March 9th to 11th, March 23rd to 25th, and April 6th to 8th. If you don't make it in to the closed beta test, the open beta test will take place from April 19th-22nd. The Head Start period is from April 28th to May 1st.

While World of Warcraft has had recent Chuck Norris endorsements, TERA gets MMA legend Bas Rutten's seal of approval. What's the final result? Find out here:
