Creating hardcore MMO players through quality content – Interview with Jeremy Gaffney

We’ve been following Wildstar for a while now and we got to speak to some pretty awesome people making the game. There is, however, one defining moment you can have doing this: talking to, how his fans call him, Gaffer, better known as Jeremy Gaffney, Executive Producer of Carbine Studios. Responsible for overseeing the entirety of the game he can tell us everything about it and he usually does. We took our chance during GamesCom to ask him about Wildstar’s business model and C.R.E.D.D., and what effects it might have on the player economy. We talked about end game and raids and sneaked in a couple of community questions about that topic. Finally, we asked if Wildstar is for hardcore gamers and you just have to hear the answer in the video bellow to find out Mr. Gaffney’s thoughts about that.

We’d like to thank Mr. Gaffney for taking the time to talk to us and answering some community questions along the way.

You can expect a full transcript of this interview very soon.

WildStar Business Model Revealed

WildStar’s business model has finally been revealed it’s buy-to-play, with hybrid monthly subscription. The standard box (physical or digital copy) will cost $59.99 (€44.99 / £34.99) and will include 30 days of free game time and three week-long passes for friends to try the game. You will be able to purchase WildStar both digitally and physically at all major retailors.

After buying the game Carbine offers you two options for your game time:

  1. Monthly subscription
    Subscription Cost Per Month $ Cost Per Month € Cost Per Month £
    1 Month 14.99 12.99 8.99
    3 Months 13.99 11.99 8.49
    6 Months 12.99 10.99 7.99
    12 Months 10.99 9.99 6.99
  2. C.R.E.D.D.
    This model can be marked as Free-to-Play. After buying the game you can use your first month of gameplay to earn gold while playing WildStar. When the next month comes around, instead of paying the monthly subscription fee, you can use gold earned in-game to purchase C.R.E.D.D. and extend your subscription by 30 days.
     
    C.R.E.D.D. is an in-game item that, when consumed, extends an account’s subscription by 30 days. It stands for Certificate of Research, Exploration, Destruction and Development. C.R.E.D.D. can be bought from other players in-game via the Commodities Exchange (CX) for earned in-game money. Alternately, you can purchase C.R.E.D.D. online at WildStar-Online.com.
     
    The cost of C.R.E.D.D will be $19.99 (€16.99 / £11.99) on WildStar website, but it will fluctuate based on the current player to player trade rate on your realm’s Commodities Exchange (CX). Once any character on your account has the item, you activate the C.R.E.D.D. in-game from your character inventory.
