WildStar reveals the final two classes: Say hello to the Engineer & Medic
3 December 2013
Excerpt: Throughout WildStar ’s pre-launch existence, the Carbine team has done an excellent job of keeping all their details shrouded in mystery. Between fan demands and website snooping, you’d think some things would leak over time. Nope. WildStar’ s reveals have been under their control with only morsels slowly fed to us. With the shouts from the fan base demanding more, WildStar has once again agreed to reveal some new information.
WildStar preview: An MMO that I want to play with a controller
2 November 2013
Excerpt: WildStar has been flaunting its active combat and colorful, light-hearted presentation at many a convention, and I finally had an opportunity to get my hands on it during this year’s New York Comic Con. As a more console-focused gamer, I’ve only dabbled in MMOs, but even I could spot the differences almost immediately. WildStar has many of the hallmarks of MMORPGs, but its combat seems inspired by character action games like Devil May Cry and God of War .
WildStar Preview: Taking what you think you know about MMOs and adding a unique spin
15 July 2013
Excerpt: After getting my hands on Carbine’s MMO WildStar , I can definitely say there is a whole lot going on in this game. Though playing a level 25 character without any previous gameplay experience, WildStar is quite overwhelming. By no means do I mean this in a negative light though; if anything, it is a tribute to what the game is going to be about. I like the depth, I like the potential, I accept the challenge.
PAX Prime 2013: WildStar wants to be a home for MMO players
15 July 2013
Excerpt: WildStar has been on my radar ever since I first laid eyes on it back at PAX Prime 2011. Fast forward two years and it still remains one of my most highly anticipated MMORPGs. WildStar has certainly come a long way since it was first revealed two years ago, but the scope of the game has remained – one that is a “home for MMO players.” And based on what I was told at PAX Prime this weekend, it sounds like Carbine is catering to the traditionalists.
PAX Prime 2011: WildStar Impresses With Debut Gameplay
26 August 2011
Excerpt: NCSoft recently unveiled their new MMORPG, WildStar. The stylish trailer showed off three characters; a bubbly bunny eared sorceress, a hulking sword wielding brute and a smug gun wielding pretty boy. No footage of gameplay was shown-- that is until now, and we got some hands on with it. The trailer pretty much revealed the three characters that you'll be able to play as.
Summary: Nach der wortreichen Einleitung der Präsentation hatte ich einiges erwartet, am Ende blieb aber doch etwas Ernüchterung. Denn von den markigen Worten in Sachen „spiel, wie du willst“ und „alles etwas anders“ war am Ende recht wenig zu spüren. Was man dem Spiel sicherlich zugutehalten muss (oder zumindest den rund 60 Minuten im unteren Levelbereich, die wir spielen konnten), ist ein sehr angenehmer Spielfluss ohne große Leerläufe.
