Wildstar, the futuristic MMORPG by Carbine Studios and NCSoft has open its gates for the closed beta of its transition into free to play. Moving away from the pay to play model the new experience also brings new and improved features with one of the biggest updates yet for the game.
The Wildstar free to play closed beta is available to anyone with an active paid subscription or non-subscribers who have a closed beta key. Anyone can sign up for the beta over at the Wildstar website.
New features and content being introduced in the free-to-play version of WildStar are:
- The Alpha Sanctum
A new instance that “brings players into WildStar’s world storyline much earlier in the game than ever before.”
- Madame Fay’s Fortunes
A randomized reward system that can “turn a tiny investment into big, big shinies.”
- New character introduction
The character creation system has been updated, and players can choose where they wish to start in WildStar based on their past experience with MMO games.
- Loyalty program
Players who have invested money into the game either through subscription payments, redeeming in-game C.R.E.D.D., or purchasing MTX items will now earn points in WildStar’s Loyalty Program. Points can be used to access additional gear, items, pets, mounts, and more.
