Wildstar MMO opens up on pre-orders, sets a launch date

A new video released from Carbine Studios details the many pre-order bonuses that fans will receive when they lock-in the highly anticipated MMO “WildStar”. The game itself is set to launch on June 3, 2014 across the globe.
 
Pre-orders will open on Wednesday, March 19 at a suggested retail price of $59.99, and orders can be placed on WildStar’s website, GameStop and Amazon.
 
Players who pre-order have early access to several closed and open beta events and will receive a variety of exclusive in-game items and perks, including:

  • Early game access beginning Tuesday, May 31 (three days prior to the game’s official launch).
  • An exclusive Rocket House
  • A mini-ship housing decoration, which grants players additional rest experience points.
  • A 10-slot storage bag to increase character inventory
  • The opportunity to reserve character and guild names prior to launch.

 
WildStar will be available in two versions. The Standard Edition includes the game, 30 days of play time, and three 7-day friend passes, as well as an Eldan-themed Housing Décor item. For an additional $15, the Digital Deluxe version of WildStar includes all elements of the Standard Edition as well as an even larger package of exclusive content: an Eldan Hoverboard, a unique costume, a unique Eldan player title and a limited-edition Eldan dye set.
 
“We’re stoked to launch WildStar,” said Jeremy Gaffney, executive producer at Carbine Studios. “We’re looking forward to seeing the first players begin their journey on the unexplored planet of Nexus. Both noobs and MMO vets will have a blast with our fast-paced combat, while experienced guilds and groups will build complete battle-fortresses using our Warplot system and tackle some truly epic raids. We’ve aimed for fun and unique content for MMO gamers of all stripes from level one to level cap and beyond. WildStar is a brand new IP and new universe that has attracted more than 1.4 million beta signups already, so it seems like other gamers are also eager for something new and different in the MMO space.”
 
Unlike anything currently available, WildStar engages players with a beautiful and distinctive animation style, robust housing customization, and high-action combat that truly tests players’ skill with its fast-paced, reactive telegraph system. On top of that, the game’s personality is distinct in its own right; humorous but laced with a mysterious undercurrent that implies there is more happening in the world than meets the eye. WildStar gives players the freedom to experience the game how they want to play, while providing an unprecedented level of exploration and discovery among the planet Nexus.
