WildStar starts testing free-to-play patch

    
40

WildStar’s free-to-play transition is just around the corner, as testing commenced today on the fall patch. The public test realm update includes the new business model, cash shop, and other Drop 6 changes and features.

That game also enjoyed a shining moment in the sun this past week as the sci-fi MMO won Most Anticipated MMO of 2015 at the ChinaJoy convention. The award was given out by Sun.360 at its Game Panoramic Awards Ceremony.

In addition to changing over to a F2P model this fall, WildStar is planning to launch in China later this year. A beta for the region is tentatively planned for this month, adding several new cosmetics and pets to appeal to Chinese audiences.

Port it to PS4 and watch the revenue go thru the roof. The LAS format and combat is built for a console controller.

I brought the game cheaply recently and tried it for a month . It was fun but dead . I think it could be a great game under free to play but whether I play it depends a lot on what sort of free to play system they have , if its like Terra or Rift I am in .

Ernost Because like it or not, the Asian market is much bigger.

“…adding several new cosmetics and pets to appeal to Chinese audiences.”
Why is it that Western games launching in the East are willing to do this but not the other way around?

I wasn’t really replying to him (or her) though, I was asking Bree. Kinda like asking the manager something while trying ignoring the idjit across the table from you babbling nonsense. >.<
