UPDATE 3/22/2012: Did you not win a TERA closed beta key this morning from GamesRadar on Facebook or twitter? Don’t worry! PC Gamer and GamesRadar still have a limited supply of keys left. Act quickly and follow the directions below to get a ticket to the closed beta test 4 this weekend.

How to get your beta key

1. Login to If you’re not already a member, click here to register. It only takes a minute.
2. Head to our TERA closed beta key page to get your code.
3. Make a note of your code and follow instructions to redeem it and start downloading the client.

We like writing previews. It’s our chance to be the first to tell you about the most exciting new MMOs in development. But what we like even more is being able to bring you into closed betas. It’s the best way for you to get a first-hand look at upcoming titles – and at the end of the day, it’ll also help developers make a better game. 

This week, GamesRadar is pleased to be able to work with our friends at PC Gamer to invite a select number of readers to join the next closed beta phase for TERA.

TERA’s fourth closed beta test will officially begin on Friday, March 23 at 12:00pm (PST) and will end on Sunday, March 25 at 11:59pm (PST). The game client is a rather large download, clocking in at 16GB. So if you win a code on Thursday, we recommend you begin downloading the client ahead of time.

Please note that this closed beta test phase is region restricted for North America only. With TERA’s May 1, 2012 launch date fast approaching, the opportunities to play the game in its beta test phase are becoming rarer! So make sure check out both GamesRadar and PC Gamer this Thursday for a chance to win a TERA closed beta key.

Thanks for visiting GamesRadar and good luck!

    Anyone else getting "Sorry! The marketing promotion associated with this game code has expired." for Beta 4 codes?????

    Just got a code, gonna start the download in a bit, but just to clarify, once Tera actually comes out, is it going to be a monthly subscription like WoW? Or is it going to be a "Buy it once, never pay again" type of game like Guild Wars? Because I'm looking forward to this, but I can't afford to pay a monthly fee (College and all)
  • jonah-cottrell - March 22, 2012 2:38 p.m.

    yes terra is a pay per month, i think its 14.99$ per month and if you do a yearly subscription its alot cheaper, the game come out on shelf some time in april, near the end
