Over the past few years, Carbine Studios has been quietly working on WildStar, a highly stylized MMO. Today, the studio is ready to show what the game is all about with the release of a trailer that explores the game’s story, setting and gameplay systems.
Designed in a weird sci-fi/fantasy setting, players take on the roles of adventurers and explorers who’ve discovered a planet on the edge of space called Nexus. As a war brews on the planet, players can join the cause of the Exiles or pledge their allegiance to the Dominion. Either way, both factions are viable paths for gearing up your character and killing a host of interesting foes.
Unlike most MMORPGs, WildStar features an action-based combat system that’s not unlike what you’d experience in a console action game. Additionally, players will also be able to purchase “Warplots” and turn them into heavily armed fortresses to fend off waves of enemies and partake in the game’s unique form of tower defense.
WildStar will be out this year.
