WildStar is in the Humble E3 Bundle… for non-players

Getting WildStar for only a couple of dollars seems like a pretty solid deal, especially when that means an extra 30 days of game time. Sure, the game is going free-to-play, but it’s not there yet. But existing players who decided to jump on the Humble Bundle’s E3 ticket bundle just for that code got a bit of a surprise when the WildStar portion went from being a bonus code that could be applied to an existing account to being for new players only.

Images of a cached version of the promotion announcement state that the codes can be applied to existing accounts, while the current page states the opposite. It’s unclear whether this is a sudden switcheroo or a similar change was made on the Humble store, but after players have spent the past few months being encouraged to pick up more copies, it’s a bit of an unexpected shift.

The Secret World rolls out its Ultimate Edition

Getting back up to speed in any game can be tricky. If you’re out of the loop for a while, you miss out on quite a bit. The Secret World is certainly going out of its way to help you catch up, though, with the launch of the new Ultimate Edition of the game. It comes with every update of the game’s first season, exclusive starter weapons, AP boosts, and an exclusive outfit for players to use in dressing up.

Players who have never played the game before can obviously use the new edition as a quick way of getting into the action, while veterans who have stepped away can buy the edition to access all the content within whilst getting a bonus copy of the game to give away. The bundle is also on sale until June 25th; you could even pick it up on Steam right now for $42. You know how summer sales are.

Star Trek Online is rolling out new Tier 6 Veteran ships

Lifetime and veteran subscribers for Star Trek Online have long had access to a special ship that shows off their elite status. Unfortunately, the game’s most recent patch has left that ship a bit less elite; you can upgrade your Heavy Destroyer, but it’s still just a Tier 5 ship instead of a Tier 6. So it’s good news that a new Tier 6 Heavy Destroyer is being rolled out for all three factions, allowing long-time players to unlock a new starship trait and take on space with an improved craft.

The new Heavy Destroyers feature an enhanced version of the transformation ability present in the earlier versions along with a specialist officer bridge seat and the new Weapon System Synergy trait, which buffs projectile weapons after concentrated barrages from energy weaponry. If you desperately want the new ships but aren’t a veteran, you’re in luck; it’s not a coincidence that they’re being added to the game at the same time that a sale on lifetime subscriptions is being offered.
