After a lot of hype and anticipation over the release of WildStar, we finally have some hard dates to work with. The pre-orders for WildStar will open Wednesday, March 19th. The game's release date is currently targeted for June 3rd, just a few short months away. We also expect that NCSoft will be lifting the NDA on the beta today, so expect to see a flood of information, screens, and videos soon.

Subscription and Credd
WildStar is a monthly subscription based MMO. Monthly subscription rate is $15. As an alternative to paying real money for the monthly subscription, players can purchase Credd from the in-game marketplace for in-game gold. 1 Credd = 1 month of play time. 1 Credd is purchased by players out of game for $20. This is a free market system that provides both gold to players that want to pay real money for it, and free subscriptions to those who have the in-game gold to afford it.
