Cartoony MMO WildStar‘s free-to-play version has entered closed beta.
WildStar is due to properly go free-to-play sometime over the next few months, but presumably, all of the changes being made require a bit of testing. The game itself will be fully playable to free accounts, with no limitations on accessing any of the content currently in the game, but with a whole lot of restrictions on more… quality-of-life enhancements. Free players will have less character slots, for instance, and can’t invite into or create warparties. A lot of these restrictions are removed on paying for a “signature” account, which is basically the new subscription service.
You can read the full details on the changes to the free-to-play version and the bonuses that box owners and subscribers get over here. If you want to sign up for the closed beta, you can do so over here, although any current subscribers should automatically have access.Related to this article

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
