WildStar MMO releasing worldwide June 3

Pre-orders offer early access, extra items

Carbine Studios' sci-fi MMORPG WildStar will launch worldwide on June 3.

The NCsoft-published title, which uses template-based "skill shot" targeting and a limited action set to encourage real-time movement and positioning, will open for pre-order on March 19.


Customers who pre-order the standard edition for $59.99, or the Digital Deluxe version with extra in-game content for $74.99, can participate in a three-day headstart beginning May 31. Pre-orders also come with exclusive in-game housing customizations and storage bags.

"We're stoked to launch WildStar," executive producer Jeremey Gaffney said in a statement. "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 was first announced for PC in August 2011. Each purchase of the game comes with 30 days of play time, after which players can either subscribe for $15 a month or spend in-game cash to buy time-extending credits from other players.
