WildStar's Business Model Detailed
Carbine's shiny space MMO launches next spring.
08.19.13 - 4:38 PM

Carbine Studios' sci-fi MMORPG WildStar won't be launching until next spring, but they've already detailed their business model for the title. For starters, it encourages players to invite their friends, as when you purchase WildStar you will get 3 guest passes to invite friends to try it out for a week, each. As for getting into the game yourself, you will have 30 days free - after that, you can either go with a monthly subscription, a Game Time card, or use ingame currency to purchase various items called CREDD that can be cashed in for more game time. Alternatively, these CREDD can be sold to other players and bought with real money.

For more on their business model, you can check out the FAQ page here. WildStar will be available both digitially and physically next spring for $59.99 US, and will be playable at Gamescom later this week, and PAX Prime at the end of this month.
