Start of the Second WildStar Closed Beta

Carbine Studios has just completed a very successful first Closed Beta for WildStar. Today marks the start of Closed Beta Two: The Dominion. This beta focusses solely on the second faction, the powerful galactic empire called the Dominion, and features new zones, dungeons, Battlegrounds and more.

Great news for European players; thanks to the feedback from a small group of non-US Closed Beta One testers, the Closed Beta invitations are no longer region-locked. So, regardless of your location in the world you've got the same chance as anyone to get invited to the Closed Beta!

Carbine Studios has already begun sending invitations to Closed Beta Two, so keep an eye on your inboxes and spam folders.

PATCH HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Exile faction have been hidden away for this round of beta, but give a warm welcome to the Dominion!
