WildStar developer Carbine Studios has announced a new addition to their already lucrative 2-step account verification system, offering up a free mount for those who secure their account.
The announcement was revealed through the official website, noting that while many players may feel secure without an authenticator attached to their account, the day may come where they suddenly find themselves naked and stranded in the middle of the capital city without their precious items. To help further push the idea of securing your account against hackers and gold farmers, Carbine has added a fourth reward: the Retroblade Mount.
Carbine notes that once 2-step authentication has been setup, you'll be able to log in as normal with your username and password, however you'll also be required to enter in a randomly generated number using the on-screen numpad and mouse. How does it keep your account safe? We'll let Carbine answer that;
If you think of your account like a house, your password is the door. Adding 2-Step Verification to that is like putting a heavy-duty lock on that door. You wouldn't leave your door unlocked, would you?In addition to the new Retroblade mount, 2-step verification rewards also include the Cybernetic Eyepatch, an in-game title that’ll make you the envy of Nexus. You also get a buff that boosts your XP, Prestige, and Renown. Who can say no to free stuff?
