Wildstar's planet of Nexus is about to receive some new arrivals. The MMO's ten-day open beta has launched, giving potential purchasers a chance to try out a generous thirty levels of content. Head to Carbine's open beta page to collect a key. Alternatively, stick around and watch the new Wildstar story trailer. It'll tell you exactly why you're travelling through a bunch of zones, beating up the wildlife.

Tl;dr: there's a planet; people are fighting on it.

The open beta will run until May 18th, at which point you'll have a couple of weeks to prepare for the June 3rd release date.
