Time to start hoarding snacks and planning to call in sick—the WildStar Free-to-Play update, WildStar: Reloaded, launches September 29!
WildStar: Reloaded includes BIG changes to core game systems; a new character creation and intro experience; improvements to dungeons, itemization, tradeskills, world bosses and group content; a class stat revamp; new quality of life features, bonus events, the Cosmic Rewards program, and so much more.
Best of all (and despite the repeated objections of the Protostar Corporation) it’ll all be totally free!
Players who want a little more can choose to join WildStar Signature service, which provides new bonuses and rewards on top of the basic game. They can also visit the in-game Store, a new interface which sells cosmetic improvements, character services, progression boosts, and other goodies. The Store accepts good ol’ Earth cash or the new OmniBits currency. What are OmniBits? Only money you can earn just by playing the game, accomplishing goals, and killing all kinds of stuff, that’s what!
Don’t want to wait? If you’re itching to come back and blow things up immediately in the period before the free-to-play conversion, you’ll earn Cosmic Reward points for the Cosmic Rewards program—and any leftover time when Reloaded launches will automatically convert to Signature service. Current subscribers are also guaranteed access to beta test the WildStar: Reloaded update. Not subscribed? You can sign up for a chance to participate and help kick off the second phase of our beta that starts today (September 3). And those with access who log in to the beta realm will be given a “Freelancer” title for all their characters to use after the Reloaded launch.
We’ve got a lot more to show off over the next few weeks, so keep checking back for updates and news as we get closer to September 29th. (OH MAN, IT’S SO CLOSE!) And be sure to keep an eye out for beta key promotions and giveaways!
