Fans of WildStar will be able to take part in the game's open beta that is slated to run for ten days from May 8-18th. In honor of the event, the level cap has been increased to 30 to allow players to experience more of the game than in any of the previous closed beta events. The WildStar team will be taking to the airwaves in special live stream event on Thursday, May 8th at 11:00 a.m. PST / 2:00 p.m. EST.
To kick off the Open Beta, we’re hosting a 30 minute LiveStream on our Twitch Channel on Thursday, May 8th. (http://www.twitch.tv/wildstar) featuring the guys behind the game – Mike Donatelli, product director, Chad Moore, creative director, Stephen Frost, producer and voice of DevSpeak, and Matt Mocarski, development director. Not only will they give a state of the game update and share their thoughts on exactly why WildStar is going to kick ass and disrupt the MMO category at launch and beyond, but we’re going to answer some of the outstanding questions that have been regularly popping up in our forums. You will not want to miss this.
In addition to the LiveStream on Thursday, the team will be back on Friday with a six-hour developer LiveStream featuring a slew of content including Jeremy Gaffney talking to the challenges they’ve had to overcome to get this game ready for launch on June 3, play-by-play of some exciting raids and Warplot activity, a sneak peek into higher level Open Beta content and if we’re lucky, some post launch content gameplay. But, to top it off, we will be turning this into a massive social AMA, opening up every social platform to take questions – Facebook, Reddit, Tumblr, Twitter, Forums, Twitch, Vine and maybe even MySpace to name a few.
