The highest-rated MMORPG of 2014 is only weeks from making the transition to free-to-play. That game is WildStar, and it's quickly becoming one of the most widely discussed games in the MMORPG scene.
On September 29th, WildStar will officially be free-to-play. Those who aren't interested in subscription fees will have a chance to enjoy the experience with no commitment. In order to prepare for the inevitable influx of players, Carbine Studios is hosting a Closed Beta aimed at stress testing and game polish for what is essentially a re-launch of the game.
Thanks to Carbine Studios, we have 10,000 WildStar closed beta keys to give away. Each of these codes grants any non-subscriber access to the Closed Beta currently underway and concluding at the end of September. Grab a code below corresponding to your region:
