WildStar

Genre(s): RPG, Multiplayer
UK Publisher: NCSoft
US Publisher: NCSoft
Developer: Carbine Studios
Age Rating: ESRB |

WildStar is the long-awaited MMO from Carbine Studios, founded in 2005 with the express purpose of creating a "WoW-killer". The rest of the industry has toned down its PR rhetoric since then - for the longest time, WoW's dominance has proved unassailable. WildStar's devs, however, still have that same pugilistic confidence when talking about their sci-fi MMORPG. It's certainly got colour and character in spades, with a Firefly vibe to the outback planet on which it's set, and a vibrant sense of caricature. The mechanics hold promise, too, with their elaborate spread of classes and careers that radically alter the direction of your game.

Clever questing and a stand-out combat system make for an entertaining MMO that's as large as it is full of character.
