WildStar’s Steam countdown has begun

    
65

Anxiously awaiting WildStar’s arrival on Steam? Time to add it to your wishlist and let the stalking begin: The game’s Steam page is live now, though it’s not yet available for play. Carbine told players in a posted FAQ last week that the date for the launch is yet to be announced. Among the other tidbits you’ll need to know:

  • Carbine is not launching new servers for the Steam release.
  • You will be able to buy NCoin with your Steam wallet.
  • Existing players will be able to link their accounts to Steam (and redownload the client). “The first time you run the game from Steam, it will prompt you to log into the game just as you have before. Doing this will link that account to your Steam account,” says the studio. “[I]f you have multiple accounts be sure which one you want linked, as only one of them can be. If you accidentally link the wrong account, you can put in a ticket with support to have it reset.”

mmofallout Damonvile MorpayneRADIO FF14 would like to have a word with you. There are also some freemium games that pretty much require a sub anyways even though the base game is free in order to access most of the game that are doing quite well (SWTOR,LOTRO, EQ2,DCUO)

Xephyr Scarecrowe karmamule Just add it as a Non-steam game and it is the same effect as it being on steam. The only difference is you have to download the launcher one time from the website instead of finding it on the steam store.

Humble48 Bigger playerbase, since some people are steam gamers completely. It helps them to have a plataform.
Also revenue through steam wallets yeah.

Perhaps I’m missing something, but what’s the big deal that it’s on Steam? It’s already F2P. Is Steam bringing something to the table here other than just other ways to get money sources?

I probably some day, just for the fun of it download this now that it’s on steam.  I’ve never played before and the game looks not too bad.

MorpayneRADIO Nordavind But correct me if I’m wrong, the game (Marvel Heores) isn’t designed with the idea that you buy every hero – that’s like saying it would cost hundreds of dollars to play league of legends based on the champion prices, depth of champion pool, and amount of re-skins available – the idea is you earn some for free through play, and impulse buy others.
The prices are a little steep if you ask me, but nothing really obscene… $60 (average cost of a AAA game) for:4 Heroes (Wolverine, Colossus, Cyclops, Jean Grey)12 Costumes (including Wolverine Brown, Colossus Classic, Cyclops Classic, Jean Grey Dark Phoenix)4 Hero S.T.A.S.H. (extra Hero specific inventory, costumes will appear here)10 Fortune Cards
Seems relatively reasonable to me.   I’m not saying that this model is better or worse than wildstar, but it doesn’t strike me as completely crazy
