WildStar Open Beta Starts Today

Carbine Studios has announced the beginning of the WildStar Open Beta as of today, May 8, until May 18. In order to get yourself a beta key, you need to visit WildStar Open Beta page and request a key. If you have participated in any other WildStar beta event, you’re already good to go!

During these 10 days of WildStar Open Beta, you can advance up to level 30, along with benefiting from additions such as Farside, Galeras Adventure tower defense, two new abilities and an ability slot which you unlock at level 30, as well as tier points.

Carbine Studios will hold a 30-minute Twitch.tv livestream on Thursday, May 8, 2 PM ET (11 AM PDT) to mark the release of the beta. On Friday, the developers will hold a six-hour stream starting at 2 PM ET (11 AM PDT) to talk about the development of WildStar along with a huge Q&A session.

wildstar open beta weekWildStar is expected to be released on June 3, being already available for pre-purchase at 44.99 EUR (62.60 $) for the standard edition, and 59,99 EUR (83.48 $) for the Deluxe edition, while an upgrade from Standard to Deluxe is 15 EUR (20.87 $). Check the new packages here.
After release, WildStar will be taking a hybrid approach, allowing players to pay their monthly subscription with either 15 $ / month or with an in-game item called C.R.E.D.D. This item gives players the opportunity to purchase 30 days of gameplay or to be traded for other in-game currency. C.R.E.D.D. can be obtained by buying it from other players using in-game currency or by purchasing it directly from Carbine Studios on the WildStar website for 20 $.
