NC-Soft and Carbine announced that the upcoming action sci-fi MMO, WildStar has entered Open Beta and is going to remain available to fans 24/7 for the next 10 days.
Carbine’s Wildstar, arguably one of the most anticipated MMOs this year, has entered in a 10day open-beta. With a large amount of new players flooding the gates, a brand new European Datacenter has been switched on for a smoother game experience.
The announcement of Open Beta is also accompanied with a new trailer from Carbine, showcasing the background gamestory. The level cap has been raised to 30, and the first localized German and French versions are available for testing. European players with existing characters can continue their adventures on European servers with ease.
To kick off the Open Beta, Carbine Studios hosted a 30 minute Livestream on its Twitch Channel yesterday (www.twitch.tv/wildstar) with developers discussing the state of the game update and sharing their thoughts on why WildStar is going to kick ass and disrupt the MMO genre. The team will be back today, 9th with a six-hour developer Livestream featuring a slew of content starting at 20:00 CEST, including play-by-play of some exciting raids and Warplots activity, a sneak peek into higher level Open Beta content and turn the it into a massive social ‘Ask Me Anything’, opening up every social platform to take questions – Facebook, Reddit, Tumblr, Twitter, Forums, Twitch, Vine and maybe even MySpace (because why not?) to name a few.
Those new to WildStar can visit www.wildstar-online.com/en/openbeta for instructions and access, and players that have already participated in any previous WildStar beta event can log on with their current accounts.
