A new 20v20 battleground is coming to TERA

TERA, which only just finished up its kooky birthday celebrations last month, is already rousing itself from its cake coma to pump in new content. Today En Masse announced a new battleground, Corsairs' Stronghold, which looks stylishly piratey in this trailer.

To be honest, it's hard to believe this is only a 20v20 battleground, because the map looks massive. Your job is to break into the stronghold; you can wimpishly scale the ladders, but way cooler is the ability to drop in via airship, or bust through the walls with a siege engine. Players at level 30 or higher can partake in the cannonball-slinging "test of your ability, not your gear."

Corsairs' Stronghold isn't just a PVP map, though—all sorts of related goodies are included, like unlockable titles and a "Black Pearl" mount. There's also a peg-legged costume available in the in-game shop, if you want to take cheerful piracy to the extreme. It hits July 2.
