Free-to-play Relaunch WildStar: Reloaded Dated

The folks at Carbine have given a name and a date to the free-to-play relaunch of WildStar, which has now been dubbed WildStar: Reloaded. It's coming on September 29th, and it's going to include an optional subscription and a cash store, just as customary in MMOs these days:

Time to start hoarding snacks and planning to call in sick the WildStar Free-to-Play update, WildStar: Reloaded, launches September 29!

WildStar: Reloaded includes BIG changes to core game systems; a new character creation and intro experience; improvements to dungeons, itemization, tradeskills, world bosses and group content; a class stat revamp; new quality of life features, bonus events, the Cosmic Rewards program, and so much more.

Best of all (and despite the repeated objections of the Protostar Corporation) it'll all be totally free!

Players who want a little more can choose to join WildStar Signature service, which provides new bonuses and rewards on top of the basic game. They can also visit the in-game Store, a new interface which sells cosmetic improvements, character services, progression boosts, and other goodies. The Store accepts good ol' Earth cash or the new OmniBits currency. What are OmniBits? Only money you can earn just by playing the game, accomplishing goals, and killing all kinds of stuff, that's what!
