WildStar free-to-play update hits closed beta today

NCSoft and Carbine Studios are continuing to hammer out everything set to go in this fall's free-to-play update for WildStar. Today, they've taken a major step forward, announcing that the MMORPG's major update would enter its closed beta phase.

The closed beta is open to all WildStar subscribers, as well as non-subscribers that have a closed beta key. The update is set to debut some new elements into the game. This includes the new Alpha Sanctum story instance that ushers players into the game's story at an earlier stage. The update will also debut new quality-of-life improvements, the new (and retroactive) loyalty program that rewards players for spending C.R.E.D.D. and NCoin, and new early game scenarios.
