Open Beta seems like the modern equivalent of a demo. The game isn’t really finished yet, but it’s close enough, and you can get a sense if it’s for you. WildStar is giving you that opportunity for ten days.
First of all, here is the Open Beta launch trailer for the game:
I got some quality time with the game while it was still in closed Beta, and I definitely enjoyed myself. However, due to the subscription nature of this MMO, I’d strongly recommend that anyone who is even vaguely interested in the game goes and gives the Open Beta a try. The Beta version I played was already quite polished and well done – presumably it will be even closer to the final release version now. It should give an accurate sense of what the game will be like, and help you decide if it’s worth the investment.
Want to give the Beta a whirl? The sign up is pretty quick and painless – just head on over here and press the big green button. Remember, it’s only available for PC right now, and there has been minimal mention of expanding to other platforms. So, if you’re looking to play an MMO on console, Mac or Linux, you’ll have to look elsewhere.
What makes you choose an MMO? It seems to be an exploding market at the moment – every day someone else announces that they’re making one. What would make you choose WildStar over TESO or FFXIV, or WoW for that matter?
