According to ancient Cassian legend, the original human settlers of planet Cassus became infected with a dangerous plague soon after they made planetfall. After killing its first victim within a matter of hours, the disease spread viciously-decimating a beleaguered crew exhausted by their journey from parts unknown.
Night fell upon the settlers’ makeshift camp, and they fueled raging bonfires with bodies of the fallen. The few remaining survivors hid in their shelters, praying their respirators would save them from a horrendous death. But just when it seemed that all hope was lost, they discovered a young girl with a natural immunity, and her blood was used to create a life-saving vaccine. As dawn broke and the great bonfires burned down to ash and embers, the remaining settlers emerged into the daylight, took off their respirators, and celebrated their salvation-even as they mourned the tragic loss of their dead.

Cheap wildstar gold online When sci-fi MMO Wildstar launched as a hardcore, subscription-based massively-multiplayer-online roleplaying game in June of 2014, it had gamers and critics alike scratching their collective heads in confusion.
Here was an MMO launching in 2014 that not only hoped to reel in a sustainable subscriber base in an age of free-to-play online games, but was going to do so by emulating the complex, time-consuming MMOs of bygone years. Casual was in and hardcore was out, and WildStar-which certainly looked fun and had a great art style-was already antiquated at launch.
“Five years ago the landscape looked different,” WildStar Product Director Mike Donatelli tells me. That’s when Carbine began working on the current iteration of WildStar-the game had been in development in one form or another for much longer-and back then, at least from the developer’s perspective, the subscription model wasn’t in such dire straits.
The development team decided to build the game with a subscription model in mind, which makes sense given Carbine was founded by ex-Blizzard developers in 2005(and acquired by publisher NCSoft two years later).
Cheap wildstar gold online Wildstar is one of those MMOs that has managed to survive in the harsh, difficult land these games find themselves competing over. But like many others subscriptions just aren’t doing it anymore, prompting developers Carbine Studios to announce the transformation to Free-to-Play back in May. It’s been a slow process too, but Wildstar is finally ready to shed its paying ski, and soon too.
Wildstar will fully go free-to-play at the end of this month, on September 29th to be exact. All accounts that have a paying subscription on them will be converted to Signature accounts-which bestow upon you some extra goodies for paying and support the game since launch. Signature status can be maintained if you continue paying too, with all the details about what you get over normal, free accounts documented in full over here.
Inactive or otherwise non-paying accounts will be converted to Free status, which really just strips away some added benefits like Auction House slots and Currency earning rates. The game itself is completely open, with Carbine not wanting to lock free players out of content that still paying ones would have access to. Expansion in the future might require a little bit of an investment, but for now there’s nothing stopping players from enjoying Wildstar for absolutely nothing.
And that’s part of the reason why the free-to-play model has worked to revive so many other MMOs before, with DC Universe being a prime example. Offering some smaller in-game purchases and functionality for truly dedicated players keeps some money rolling in, but at least the barrier for entry doesn’t exist anymore.
Hell, I might even give it a go again-with my fond memories of being a space cowboy still fresh from the last time I embarked on Wildstar’s unique look at MMOs. It’s really good stuff, made by a talented team of developers-it’s just a pity they released what would have undoubtedly been 2005’s best MMO in 2014.
During today’s PAX East panel today–“WildStar:Just Got Real”–Carbine Studios announced that their highly anticipated MMO WildStar has gone gold. That means, production on the base game is complete.
Of course, with WildStar being an MMO, development is never completely finished–it just means now the studio gets to work on future content. In fact, we were told by Carbine Studios executive producer Jeremy Gaffney that the studio is already working on 16 different content updates for the game, much of which I expect is end game content. During the panel, Carbine showed off some new elder game (end game) content, which we’ll be posting about shortly.
WildStar is set to release on June 30 for PC.-Cheap wildstar gold online
