With TERA's launch date looming, En Masse has released a full schedule for what users should expect in the lead up to the release date.

Those who have pre-ordered to game will be able to create their first character between April 13 and April 17 in order to ensure their character names.

Shortly after an open beta will begin on April 20, while pre-order customers will get a one-day head start on April 19.

The beta will then run for three days until April 23, and pre-ordering users will again get to access the game early on April 28 - three days before it releases.

While the MMO will be hitting Europe May 3, its PvP Battlegrounds will be delayed until late Summer.
