Wildstar may not have been the WoW-killer every MMORPG developer seems to firmly believe they are making, but it’s well worth a look – especially at zero dollars.
Wildstar went fully free-to-play today so it’s a great time to dive in and check it out.
Before you do, though, can we talk about how excellent this new trailer is? It starts by setting the scene – a frontier planet – and introducing a generic player character. Then we get a bunch of nods to typical MMORPG gameplay, while piquing our interest in the game’s unique races, classes and equipment.
Fighting mobs, meeting bosses in dungeons, collecting mounts – even PvP gets a look in. By the end of the trailer our group of heroes have collected a bunch of awesome stuff and are ready for the even bigger challenges of endgame. It’s super communicative, and the music is rad. Ten points.
