Carbine is sensing the excitement for their upcoming MMORPG WildStar and would like to get more players into the game's beta. That's why the studio is opening up a special bonus beta weekend, starting on April 25. On top of that, Carbine is upping the game's level cap from 20 to 25.

The upcoming bonus weekend will also open up a number of new features, including a new Northern Wilds Adventure that sees teams of five vigorously defending their home base in a PvP setting. PvE players can explore the alien-filled sunken ship of Whitevale, as they fend off brain-controlling squids. Players will also gain access to new abilities and a new hoverboard mount.

Pre-orders are open now for immediate beta access and Carbine is adding an extra carrot to anyone that logs in each day between now and the game's June 3 launch. Players will receive 3 Boom Boxes filled with assorted loot for each day that they log in.

The bonus beta weekend will run from Friday, April 25 at 7AM PDT through Sunday, April 27 at 11:59PM PDT.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      The forum post also mentions that anyone who applied for beta will get a key for this weekend. Get your server wait queue snacks ready.

          I haven't either, but I suspect if they're opening it to everyone who applied for beta could require it. Unless they're going to open more servers that is.
