We recorded the Free to Play Cast last night. It'll be up on the site in a few hours. With Guild Wars 2 going free to play, obviously that was a big topic on the show. As part of the NCSoft portfolio though, we chatted briefly about what the Guild Wars 2 expansion probably did with the WildStar free to play release date. We speculated that September made the most sense now.

Turns out we were right as Carbine Studios has announced today that their MMORPG will make the official free to play conversion on September 29th.

On that date, the Nexus will be open to any and all players that wish to try and tackle its challenges. This update isn't JUST about the free to play conversion though and beta testing continues on the game with the second closed beta phase starting today.

If you want to try and get into beta, make sure to head over to the WildStar site and sign up.

They already made a mistake with the monthly fee.

And now they just sealed their own coffin with an absolutely disgusting Freemium business model.

It's like they WANT to go amass hate before they go bankrupt..

Well if you want to create a guild you simply need to farm ingame money and buy CREED for a premium membership and than you will be able to crate one. EASYYY !!!

Unless they make it that I can create a guild as f2p then I see no point in playing this game because its, not going to be friend friendly because i want to be able to make a guild where I can play with my friends.
