One MMO to check out this year – Wildstar

We recently attended a press event organized by Carbine Studios and NCSoft where we were shown, and got to play, Wildstar – MMORPG game coming sometime in 2013. After playing the game we thought it would be important to share our impressions about the game, because Wildstar is one of the few MMOs coming out this year and we wanted to relate what we saw, so you can decide if the game is worth your attention. MMO gamers are spread across their favorite games and when a new contender enters the fray we only give attention to games produced by big studios or backed by a major IP. This year, you should watch out for Wildstar instead.

Background

Wildstar is a game that’s been in production for 5+ years (I think the exact number is 7). Its main philosophy is to “play the way you want to play“. It is placed in a brand new universe where a legendary planet Nexus has been discovered and two previously warring factions are rushing to discover all its secrets. There is a mysteriously vanished Elden race and we also have laser guns with magic and big swords all mixed together with humor and drawing style worth of a Disney movie. It is being made by industry veterans, headed by Jeremy Gaffney, founder of Turbine who had his hands in games like Asheron’s Call, Ultima Online, City of Heroes, Tabula Rasa, Guild Wars and more.

Features

  • Action oriented combat and skill system with “telegraphs”
  • Paths – system that puts an emphasis of a certain playstyle: Explorer, Soldier, Scientist or Settler
  • Providing “elder game” is as important as providing leveling content
  • Battlegrounds, Arenas, 40v40 Warplots PvP
  • 20 and 40(!) man raiding
  • Multiple ways of progression (in elder game as well)
  • Highly customize-able Housing at launch
  • loads and loads of humor and content
