'WildStar' Enters Closed Beta Stage 2, Still Accepting Sign-ups

by Rainier on May 16, 2013 @ 8:58 a.m. PDT

WildStar offers epic high adventure, where players make their mark as Explorers, Soldiers, Scientists or Settlers and lay claim to a mysterious planet on the edge of known space.

WildStar’s iconic visual style and “Momentum Mechanics” immerse players in a deep world stacked with content, challenges and rewards that respond to the play style choices of individual players.  Depending on a combination of faction, race, class and path, WildStar will present gamers with unending surprises, mini-quests and challenges, ensuring that their experiences are fun and fresh.

WildStar takes place on the planet Nexus, a mysterious world vacated by the ancient Elden but left rich with treasures and technologies to discover and acquire.

Today marks the start of Closed Beta Two: The Dominion. This beta focusses solely on the second faction, the powerful galactic empire called the Dominion, and features new zones, dungeons, Battlegrounds and more.

Great news for European players; thanks to the feedback from a small group of non-US Closed Beta One testers, the Closed Beta invitations are no longer region-locked. So, regardless of your location in the world you've got the same chance as anyone to get invited to the Closed Beta!

Carbine Studios has already begun sending invitations to Closed Beta Two, so keep an eye on your inboxes and spam folders.

Beta 2 Highlights:

  • The Exile faction have been hidden away for this round of beta, but give a warm welcome to the Dominion!
  • The Ruins of Kel Voreth have opened up for testing. This dungeon is intended for level 20 players.
  • Battleground: Smash & Grab is now available. This 10v10 Capture the Flag variant opens immediately at level 3, and is available all the way through the beta level cap of 30.
  • The old Attribute names (Strength, Dexterity, Technology , Magic, Wisdom, Stamina) have been renamed for more WildStar-ian flair: Brutality, Finesse, Tech, Moxie, Insight, and Grit.
  • Milestones and Attributes have had a major redesign. See the Class notes below for more details.

Fans interested in checking out the beta can now sign up.
