WildStar is going free-to-play. The by-the-numbers MMO from Carbine Studios is changing from a traditional subscription model to one supported by an optional monthly payment plan and in-game shop purchases for everyone else. The monthly subscribers, or “signature service” players, will get perks like XP boosts and better trading privileges. Free players will get less extras, but the developers assure them that it won’t be unbalanced. Freeloaders will be able to experience everything paying customers will. The only real required payment will be time. Potential players will have to ask themselves how much of that they’re willing to spend.
