AIE back in Wildstar

WildStar has been in the beta stages for it’s F2P model for a few months now and the day has finally come for it to go live. AIE had a division in Wildstar when it first launched but was closed after a certain time of inactivity. With F2P comes less of a barrier in players so we’ve decided to open up the division once more. We hope that you’ll join us and give it a try! Please head over to the WildStar forums if you need more information!
