Wildstar Gameplay Videos…
WildStar is a science fiction massively multiplayer online role-playing game, that takes place on the fictional planet Nexus, where a mysterious and powerful race known as the Eldan have disappeared leaving behind a wealth of technology and secrets for players to explore.
WildStar was developed by Carbine Studios and published by NCSOFT.
WildStar boasts many compelling features, such as paths, an interesting new take on classes, and a huge new world filled with fun, mystery, and good old-fashioned ass kicking.
WildStar features six classes spread across two factions, each with four races. The game will also feature four paths, which will allow players to choose the kind of side-content they prefer most. WildStar also boasts action-based combat, player housing, tons of mini-games, and hoverboards.
For players looking to sink their teeth into some end-game content, WildStar has got you covered. With 20 and 40-man raids planned in addition to Dungeons, Adventures, and Shiphands, WildStar will have tons of ‘Elder Game’ content ready.
For people who likes player versus player action, wildstar offers Arenas, Battlegrounds and War Plots.
Arenas consist of small teams (2v2, 3v3, or 5v5) attempting to kill the opposing group of enemies. Each team has a set amount of respawns. A match is won when all of the members of a certain team has been killed, and are unable to respawn.
Battlegrounds consist of larger teams (up to 15v15). Matches are centered on varying objectives, and victory conditions are dependant upon the nature of the objectives teams are tasked with.
War Plots have the biggest teams (30v30). A War Plot is a fortress controlled by a Warparty. Players of a Warparty have to build the Warplot in order to increase its attack and defense possibilities. Matches are then organized by two Warparties. Victory is then obtained when players take control of the opposing team’s Warplot.
Upon character creation, players will be able to choose among six classes, four paths, and eight races. Classes are limited to certain pre-determined races. There are no inherent stat or gameplay difference in the different races, the difference is all aesthetic.
Playable races that belong to the Dominion faction are:
Cassian, a race of humans from the planet Cassius chosen by the Eldans as their successors.
Draken, a reptilian, warlike race that serves as the Dominion’s main combat force.
Mechari, a race of robots created by the Eldan to support the Dominion.
Chua, a race of rodent-like creatures that torched their own planet in pursuit of rapid industrialization.
Playable races that belong to the Exile faction are:
Exile Humans, a group of Cassians that rebelled against the Dominion. Speak primarily in a Southern US accent.
Granok, a rough-and-tumble race of stone creatures that love drinking and brawling.
Aurin, a race of people with animal ears and tails.
Mordesh, a race of formerly beautiful creatures with a penchant for alchemy.
The six classes are:
The Warrior – A melee class, wielding a broadsword as well as a number of other combat tools. Warriors build up kinetic energy using “builder” skills and unleash them with other, more powerful skills.
The Esper – A ranged class akin to mages, utilizing illusions to damage enemies and heal allies. Espers use psyblades – a large shuriken-like weapon – although it is not actually used to attack enemies.
The Spellslinger – Uses dual pistols combined with magic. Spellslingers have a “spell power” resources that regenerates with time and can be used to power up or give additional effects to their spells.
The Stalker – Uses dual claws and stealth. Stealth grants a number of benefits in addition to invisibility, and allows the stalker to hit for extra damage.
The Medic – Wields resonators into combat. Despite the name, medics can serve as an excellent DPS class.
The Engineer – Summons robot pets to aid in combat. Engineers use heavy weapons and manage a resource called “volatility”.
Each class is able to fulfill the role of DPS as well as one of the support roles, tank or healer.
