A few months ago there were several good reasons why players decided to cancel their subscription and actually did (as the new earnings reports revealed) and nowadays there are plenty of really good reasons to re-subscribe but unfortunately players which stopped playing WildStar a couple of months ago are not able to use Carbine's existing guest passes and therefore have no chance to check if all the improvements are actually worth enough to re-subscribe.
This problem is now gone for good!
With today's system maintenance Carbine implemented a free 10 day trial period, which is available of course to new players but also and especially to former players with an inactive account status. With this new system in place and the current momentum, thanks to the recently deployed content drop, there is a really good chance to win back a good amount of players. So what are you waiting for? Log in your NCSoft account, press the yellow button and off you go!
Check out the awesomeness of Content Drop #4!
Welcome back to Nexus, cupcakes!
If you decide you want to continue playing WildStar during or after your trial time expires and you haven’t already purchased WildStar, you can purchase a copy of WildStar and upgrade your trial account to keep playing any characters created during the free trial (with full access to all in-game content!). If you need assistance with upgrading your trial account, please visit the following link: https://wildstar.zendesk.com/entries/44539198
If you added the trial to an existing full access WildStar game account to check out new content, you can simply reactivate your game account to continue playing. If you need assistance with reactivating your account, please visit the following link: https://support.wildstar-online.com/entries/42683853
Free Trials are intended for new players to try out the game or returning players who want to see how things have changed. You cannot add a free trial to an existing WildStar account that has remaining game time; however, adding a free trial to an existing Standard or Deluxe WildStar account that has NO remaining (Lapsed) game time will add 10-days of unrestricted play!
Free trials are region-locked. If you are receiving the error “The code you purchased is for a different region than your game account”, please visit the following article for more information on what this means: https://wildstar.zendesk.com/entries/87541146
