Sci-fi MMO WildStar launching this year


12:00 PM on 02.06.2013



NCSoft's science-fiction MMO WildStar is officially coming at some point out this year. Taking place on the planet Nexus, WildStar pits players against the Dominion who has taken over Nexus and claimed it for its own. Well, that certainly is a plot.

There isn't too much gameplay footage out there for WildStar, so it's hard to know how it will pan out. The embedded video has nice production value and sets the tone for the game, but doesn't show much off. There are two more videos that show off a bit of gameplay, but without the UI or a long series of uncut video, it's hard to grasp just how interesting WildStar will be to play. 

You can also sign up for the beta on the official website.

Here are the other two videos, demonstrating the Explorer and Soldier paths. Consider me intrigued about being an Explorer.
