While TERA's Western release is on the horizon, PvP battlegrounds will be delayed until late summer, it has been announced.

Writing on the official TERA forum, community manager Minea revealed battlegrounds will not be available at the game's May launch.

Users will need to make do with open-world PvP and guild-versus-guild battles.

The MMO will be available at this year's PAX East alongside never-before-seen areas in-game.
