It appears yesterdays WildStar launch information leak was valid as today developers Carbine Studios revealed the official information surrounding the games launch. It seems that the majority of the information in the leak was indeed true as the expected release date is in actual fact the real release, giving players the opportunity to explore the highly anticipated MMO on June 3rd.
“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.”
WildStar will release with two different versions, the Standard Edition and the Digital Deluxe version. The Standard Edition comes complete with 30 days worth of subscription time, 3 7-day friend passes and a themed decoration item for the player housing feature. The Digital Deluxe version, available for an additional $15, includes all of the Standard Edition perks combined with an Eldan Hoverboard, a unique costume, a title and a limited-edition set of dyes.
