Carbide Studios and NCSoft bring a new MMORPG to the market called: WildStar A fantasy / science fiction MMORPG which takes place on the planet of Nexus. Nexus which was once the home of powerful Architects known as the Eldan, who have dissipated leaving behind their riches, superior technology and other secrets for you, the player, to discover.
A couple of interesting facts about WildStar. After the initial purchase of the full release game, you can opt in for the monthly subscription, which give you 30 days of game time. There will also be a 2nd option, where an in game item can be purchased, which give you 30 days of playtime, but can also be traded to other players for in-game currency. Interesting? Wonder how this will work and affect the in-game market value of its currency.
Another interesting fact, is that of in-game housing, right from the beginning. Usually most games either don't have this option or wait far into the life of the game to present this to its players. A players house will be accessible from the start, there will be different "plugs" that will allow you to customize the inside and outside with work benches, crafting tables, a mine or decorations. This is definitely a plus in my book.
The game features two factions and races: The Exiles; who consist of the Human Race and The Dominion, who consist of the Cassian race.
The classes available are: Warrior, Spellslinger, Esper, Engineer, Stalker, and Medic.
Once you have chosen your faction, race, and class, you can choose one of 4 different "Path" or play styles, which are: Explorer, Soldier, Settler, and Scientist.
Combat is a bit different in WildStar. There is no direct aiming or lock to the opposing player. A system called Telegraphs. How they work? 1) Manually aim your abilities in combat, 2) Your enemies will do the same, 3) Dodge or be vaporized. Seems interesting in theory, will have to check it out to see what it's really like. The WildStar site does claim: "This Aint Your Momma's Tab-Targeting Combat System!"
There is both PVE and PVP options in game. Player vs Environment is accomplished by questing solo, or in groups, and involves dungeons and possibly raids. Player vs Player, is open world PVP, meaning you can be attacked by another player anytime anywhere!
