It's time to lock and load folks. Your journey to Planet Nexus begins soon!
Whether you're an Exile freedom fighter or a loyal soldier of the Dominion, the latest news relating to the upcoming Carbine Studios-developed MMO, WildStar, will definitely have you at the edge of your seat. The moment we've all been waiting for is finally here.
Today, Carbine Studios made public WildStar's launch day and also lifted the NDA as a sign of them being ready to dish out all of the information you need to lock-in your pre-order and prepare to set foot on Planet Nexus! The game will be launching June 3, 2014, and for those looking to secure their copy early, you'll have two different purchase options available: the Standard Edition and the Digital Deluxe.
Purchasing the standard edition of the game will get you:
- 30 days of free playtime
- Three 7-day friend passes
- An Eldan-themed housing decor item
Those looking to buy the Digital Deluxe edition will receive the items lifted above as well as a few more virtual goodies including:
- An Eldan-themed hoverboard mount (with a full customizations set)
- An Eldan Augmentation Costume
- An Eldan player title
- And gold and green rare dyes
Additionally, anyone who pre-purchases either edition of the game will be granted:
- Their very own Rocketship house
- Access to the beta
- A 3-day headstart for launch
- Extra mini ship trophies for their Rocketship
- A Storage Bag (expands inventory)
- An exclusive pre-order title
- The ability to lock in your player and Guild names
Pre-orders begin March 19th with the Standard Edition at $60 and the Digital Deluxe Edition at $75. The game will be available to pre-order for both NA and EU at the same time; however, NA will only have the option of purchasing the physical copy of the Standard Edition. The Digital Deluxe will remain digital only, and as of right now there will be no collector’s edition of the game. For those looking for a little extra swag, you'll probably want to be looking at pre-purchasing your Digital Deluxe Edition.
Along with the announcement, Executive Producer, Jeremy Gaffney, had a few things to say about the team's feelings regarding WildStar's launch.
"We’re stoked to launch WildStar. 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"
This is definitely a time that has been long-anticipated by many fans looking to start their journey on planet Nexus. With the launch date roughly three months away, the time to start preparing is finally upon us.
