Developed by Carbine Studios in Southern-California Wildstar is an upcoming MMORPG that will take place on the planet called Nexus. The game will be published by NCsoft. Carbine Studios are eyeing a relase 2013 but they clearly saying the game will be released when it´s done.

The Lore

 

Discovered by one of the Exiles(more on them later) the planet Nexus is one of the most dangerous and mysterious Planets ever found. The Exiles settled on Nexus while the Dominion(more in a fec sec) is taking their right, what was given them through the Eldan, to call Nexus their own. You have to choose between those two Factions to discover ancient Ruins, mystical forests and unexplored moons. Of course there are some downsides: You have to survive against monstrosities, frightening beasts and hostile alien races.

 

 

The Factions and Races

 

The Dominion:

 

2000 years ago the Eldan have chosen the Cassian to establish a Dominion and conquer the universe. The Dominion is taking planets as their so called "right" given through the mysterious Eldan long ago. Driven by the Cassian they have settled at planet Nexus and will fight against everything that stands in their way. The Dominion is set up by 4 Races.

  • The nobly Cassian
  • The savage Draken
  • The engineered Mechari
  • The cutely crotesque Chua

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

The Exiles

 

The Exiles are a alliance of several Races against the Dominion. They are born Rebels and won´t take any commands by the Dominion. One of the Exiles discovered the planet Nexus and invited every Exile to call Nexus their new home. 4 Races has come under the banner of the Exiles:

  • The humans
  • The banished and not so smart Granok
  • The small and cute Aurin
  • The weird and creepy Mordesh

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

The Class and Pathsystem

 

You are able to choose between 6 classes and 4 Paths. The classes will define what skills, abilities you can use. The 4 Paths availabe in the game will have directly impact in which quests you can do and what kind of quests you will do. Different paths have different advantages, like the explorer will be able to explore regions where no one else will be able to.

 

The Classes:

  • The Esper
  • The Warrior
  • The Spellslinger
  • The Stalker
  • The Medic
  • The Engineer

The more I look at it, the more I see it as exactly what WoW2 would have been. I don't mean it in a bad way. It's just that it has so much in common with WoW, from the style of graphics (accessible, goofy, stylish) to all the game-sytems like phasing, questing, combat, raids, addons, achievs and even the factions are somewhat similar.

 

It's 2.0 though because the graphics more are up-to-date, the physics are better, there's housing (a much requested feature in WoW), the path system (remember Path of the Titans that was supposed to be in WoW?) and the "don't stay in fire" thing is taken to a higher level, even when doing basic quests.

 

I bet Blizzard is really worried about this one. Maybe more than they've ever been. And they should be. Expect some VERY aggressive marketing and launches from them that will coincide with Wildstar's release.

You are 100% right. Many MMORPG´s that came out after WoW tried to revolutionize the genre but what is really needed is an evolution. GW2 did it this to the most parts but not entirelly. I think Wildstar is one step further in this evolution of MMORPGs. I hope Titan on the themepark(if it will be one) and Black desert on the sandbox line will be THE 2.0 MMORPGs to play.

I think WoW had housing in the alpha, my brother was in the alpha and he recalls housing but they removed it.

Yup, that's what I've read too. For a while, there were actually some left-over items and spells in the game client that were related to housing.

Here's some pics of the housing, damn WoW's graphics and UI are unrecognizable!

Housing in Wildstar does look awesome though!

One thing that really separates this game from WoW (And most games) is the mood. They are taking a very laid back and comical approach to the game. The Dominion, Exile, and Housing trailers are hilarious and very entertaining. And that is key, entertaining. Even if this game isn't groundbreaking with it's features, if you and your friends are ROFLing when you are doing quest and world events, you will continue to play.

Seems to be a lot of anti - exile behavior in this thread. I'm okay with that :D
