After months of silence on the topic, Carbine has finally given its sci-fi MMO WildStar an official release date of June 3.
Players will be able to pre-order the game from March 19, and doing so will allow you to get into the game three days early on May 31. As well as this, players will also get an exclusive Rocket House, a mini-ship housing decoration, a 10-slot storage bag, and the opportunity to reserve character and guild names before launch.
“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.”
The game will be available in two forms at launch. The standard edition will cost $59.99 and includes the base game, 30 days of game time, three seven-day friend passes, and an Eldan-themed housing decoration. While the digital deluxe edition will set you back an $74.99 and includes everything in the standard edition, plus an Eldan Hoverboard, a unique costume, a unique Eldan player title, and a limited-edition Eldan dye set.
