Business Model

One of WildStar's many innovations is our business model. WildStar offers the option of subsidizing your adventuring needs either by paying the usual monthly subscription OR taking advantage of our unique "Play-to-Pay" system that we call "C.R.E.D.D." A Certificate of Research Exploration Destruction & Development lets you use the gold that you've earned in-game to buy game time extensions from other players.


Purchase your copy of WildStar from a physical or digital retailer, which includes 30 blissful days of free game time. At the end of which, we offer 2 options to continue your quality time on Nexus without interruption:


Pay a monthly recurring subscription using a credit card, PayPal account, or GTC (Game Time Card).


Buy more game time from another player with in-game gold courtesy of the C.R.E.D.D. Exchange!




C.R.E.D.D. is obtained in a variety of ways:

  1. 1. A real-money transaction from the WildStar® Shop
  2. 2. An in-game transaction from another character selling it for gold.
  3. 3. A Gift to (or from) a friend in-game.


C.R.E.D.D. with real money!


C.R.E.D.D. to other players!
