The wait is finally over, players eager to experience Wildstar for the first time will get to do so later this evening when the game officially launches to the public. To celebrate the launch, NCSoft is streaming live and giving away prizes all weekend on Twitch.tv
So, along with opening up the doors to experience the most feature-complete MMO ever launched, the Carbine team has compiled a star-studded line up of notable streamers to help christen the game, including Hot Pepper Gaming, Monika Lee, Bajeera, Sevadus and Mindcrack to name a few. The developers could have smashed a bottle of Champagne over a server or something to celebrate the launch, but that seems like such a waste of good Champagne.
Streaming live Saturday, May 31 through Monday, June 2 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. PDT on its Twitch channel twitch.tv/wildstar, the streams will include sweet giveaways, gear from Nvidia and Logitech. So, when taking a break from exploring the new world riddled with mystery, players can watch the stream to see developers beat themselves up in PvP battles and attempt to embarrassedly progress through insanely hard dungeons, all for the price of entertainment. A full schedule is available on the WildStar forums.
You can get ready for the launch tonight by grabbing a copy of Wildstar on Amazon.com.
