WildStar Free to Play Comes Tonight and So Does New Lighting
Carbine Studios is having a busy today. Tonight, at Midnight Eastern US time, WildStar will officially join the ranks of free to play MMORPGs. The still running Twitch stream currently shows the countdown clock but at 9 PM EST expect the channel to go live and the festivities will be under way.
Tonight's conversion doesn't just bring the free to play model though as WildStar will undergo quite a few changes come Midnight. "Reloaded" is the largest content update made to the MMORPG to date including redesigns of quest flow, character creation, environments, and a total overhaul to the level 1-15 experience. The Loyalty program just adds some extra icing.
In addition to content, WildStar's transition also comes with a whole new lighting design in game. This is a drastic visual change from the single point lighting used in the game to date and should help the graphics pop just a bit more...here's to hoping that the client is optimized.
You can patch your client to the free to play version now.
