The World - Planet Nexus

Nexus is the legendary planet of the Eldan--a powerful, technologically-advanced race that mysteriously disappeared from the galaxy more than a thousand years ago. Located in the unmapped regions of space, Nexus has been sought by archaeologists, adventurers and treasure hunters for centuries--and its recent discovery has ignited a mad rush across the galaxy to uncover its many secrets.


The Dominion, a powerful galactic empire, has claimed Nexus and all of its treasures, declaring war on the mercenaries, rebels and refugees called the Exiles, that discovered the planet and now call it their home. Caught in the middle of this intensifying conflict is a chaotic and vibrant mix of different races from the furthest corners of the galaxy, including hostile alien races, bloodthirsty space pirates, and greedy intergalactic corporations.

Nexus itself is wild and unsettled, with an endless variety of dangerous frontiers just waiting to be explored. Crumbling Eldan ruins lie hidden within majestic forests, towering mountains, and murky swamps, containing arcane magic and ancient technology of unimaginable power.The rusting wrecks of giant robots lie half-buried in shifting desert sands, and strange and deadly alien creatures prowl in the shadows of extraordinary monolithic machines. And hidden among all of these wonders are the dark secrets of the Eldan themselves, and the answers to why they disappeared from planet Nexus so long ago.

Gameplay - Play the Way You Want

First and foremost, you have to create an individual avatar. The playable races include intelligent Human, magic Fey, bunny-eared Aurin and gigantic Granok, each of which possesses its unique history and special skills. And then, there are four available professions. You opt for one of them according to your playing style. For example, if you are fond of slaying monsters during combat, you can become a Warrior, wield powerful weapons and foray into the furious battleground. If you are interested in the mysterious magic, you can become an Esper who has flair for psychic support. If you find the wizardry captivating, you assume the role of a Spellsinger, a gunman who is good at casting enchanting spells. The complete set of archetypes is still undisclosed yet, but based on what we have known, the RPG feature of this game is really engaging.


In WildStar, you can follow different development path to your liking and focus on pursuing an unparalleled career as an Explorer, a Soldier, a Scientist or a Settler. And the innovative feature of WildStar is that you can engage in distinct adventures which are, to some extent, foreign to the players who take the other paths. So when you get bored of being a warrior, you can restart from the beginning and go through a whole new gaming fun as a builder or the like.

Three Individual Aspects of WildStar

Cartoonish Graphics


The first and most obvious is the in-game cartoonish graphics, which style a fascinating mixture of the Wild West, Steam Punk and Fantasy. The Carbine studios created a unique visual style that feels like World of Warcraft blending with Joss Whedon's cartoon series of Firefly.

Diversity of Explorable Locations

The second aspect is the diversity of explorable locations. Nexus is depicted as a giant planet dotted by myriads of separate zones to ensure that players won't get tired of seeing the same environment for hours.Carbine takes great efforts to make a diversified map.


The third aspect is innovation. Not that Wild Star strikes you as a completely new game, for you may actually find familiar gameplay in many aspects. For instance, red circles on the earth warn you about your enemy's next attack beforehand and this widget allows you to dodge in time when an enemy gets close to you - doesn't this design resemble the way you can dodge firing grenades in Star Trek Online or stay way out of attack in Age of Conan? Of course, designs like the fast-paced, skill-loaded battle and smooth, vivid animation are by no means rare in good MMOs.
