Our friends over at Carbine Studios will be hosting the next WildStar Beta Weekend beginning this Friday and running through Sunday. If you've been itching to dive into the game and see what all the buzz is about, now's your chance, as we've got a fresh batch of beta keys to help get you started.
Beta Weekend Details
The Beta Weekend begins this Friday, May 2 at 7:00 AM PST, and runs through Sunday, May 4 at 11:59 PM PST with a level cap of 25 for the weekend (raised from 20 during the previous beta weekend). Keys can be redeemed now through this weekend (full redemption details can be found on the official giveaway page, linked below), but those of you claiming keys for the first time will want to begin downloading the game client early to insure you'll be patched up and ready to go for the start of the event on Friday morning.
With the extended level cap to 25 for this weekend, here are a few of the new features you'll be able to experience:
- Northern Wilds Adventure - Northern Wilds Adventure is a MOBA style group content experience for you and four of your buddies. Take over the whole map and destroy the enemy base to win, but watch out for the defending factionÂ theyÂll viciously fight to win so come prepared to kick ass.
- Whitevale - The Dominion version of Alcatraz, Invading Alien scientists (Â that dissect anything that moves), and a sunken ship filled with treasure hungry Marauders are waiting for your arrival. OhÂ and a nuclear teraformer explosion has unleashed brain controlling squid on the Exile and Dominion military forces. No big deal.
- Hoverboards - Like hoverboarding? Duh. Of course you do. Get your hoverboard at a mount vendor in the capital city!
- Abilities and AMPs - Get new abilities to put in your Limited Action Set so you can continue to customize the way you destroy baddies, and unlock more perks in our AMP system.
Exclusive Beta Items
Fans who play the WildStar beta can earn free items for launch!
