PSA: Pick up WildStar at GameStop for $10

    
40

Although WildStar is shifting over to free-to-play this fall, you can get a discounted jump start by snagging a discounted retail box of the game.

GameStop is selling a physical copy of WildStar for just $10 right now. Since that includes 30 days of game time, players could pick it up for a discounted subscription. On top of that, redeeming a box code will earn players either a mount or costume for every character on their accounts.

Players have another incentive for subscribing, as Carbine will be giving housing decor, pets, and cosmic points to those who sub up before the F2P launch.

SallyBowls1 If you’re an existing subscriber, the humble bundle is useless to you unless you gift the code to a friend. It adds no time to existing accounts. If you use the humble bundle as a new subscriber, you only get the 30 days. Also, the items like the Snarfyflex, the Glitter Kitty Hoverboard, and the Marauder costume are only available (it’s random which one you get) from physical box copies.

Jacra fakepants Thanks. It’s the usual 30-days game time that comes with the purchase: 
“Code includes the client plus a 30-day subscription.”

Even though it says “subscription” in that description, I’d wager they mean ‘post initial month’ subscription.

Where does it say it is only for retail boxes not download keys? I bought the thing as digital from Wildstar/Carbine itself and it had the normal items too. Plus the rewards from Carbine are from subscription prior F2P, so it says nowhere “physical boxes only”?

I think (!) if it comes with subscription time included, yes, registering it online before will give you the rewards after F2P transition.

Sadly the UK doesn’t have any £4 copies, best I could see was a £15 “box key” which I am too dubious to purchase (and being a dev I’m honour bound to not by from key resellers)

Seems like the NA do well

The mounts isn’t for every character. It’s only for one, and can be used to sell to other players. Don’t know about the costume.

Would anyone be so kind as to help a stranger pick 2 copies up? I live in Asia but don’t really want to pay 19.99 on WS yet. 10 a copy seems fine.

If I have the $1 humble bundle version, does this add anything?

Math is hard…thank God you guys broke that down. When I saw the box at Best Buy I smirked because for $30 it seemed like a rip off considering it would be F2P but for $10..yes a good deal..but still – Math is hard. :P
