As the transition takes place, Carbine Studios said it will remain committed to "ensuring that WildStar will remain AAA," by offering polished regular updates and a high-quality experience.

According to a PC Gamer interview with the studio's Mike Donatelli, once the MMO goes F2P, new currencies will be added to Cred, Gold and convenience tokens. Cosmetic and convenience items will be made available through Omnibits or an upcoming real-money currency.

The items one would pay real money for can be acquired in-game, so players will not be forced to spend anything of they don't wish.

A loyalty program will be offered to those who continue to pay for a subscription. The program provides the player with "loyalty currency" which can be used in a loyalty store, per PC Gamer. Other free in-game rewards will also be on offer for subs when WildStar changes to F2P.

Over the next several months, the studio will share more details on the transition and more details on the significant improvements coming to the game.
