With less than a month left before the June 3 official launch of WildStar, Carbine Studios gives prospective players a look at the high-end raid content topping off the eagerly anticipated science fiction MMORPG.
A couple weeks ago I wrote an article about Warplots, the build-a-base endgame player-versus-player mode in the upcoming science fiction MMO WildStar. Shortly after that, the fine folks from Carbine and NCsoft came knocking at my door, peering through the keyhole and asking "Do you want to build a Warplot?"
Sticking with the upcoming MMORPG's theme of building-plus-battling, WildStar's high level 40-Vs.-40 PVP battles begin with players building massive fortresses in the sky. Then they drop them.
Considering Carbine Studios was founded by 17 members of the World of Warcraft development team, I can forgive the re-use of the terms "Arenas" and "Battlegrounds". It's the combat that matters, and WildStar's isn't very much like WoW at all.

Carbine Studios' latest DevSpeak details what combat will look like in their upcoming animated movie-esque MMORPG, Wildstar—specifically, how its Free Form Targeting system works, which lets you take precise control of all attacks, ranged or otherwise.

Carbine Studios has already won me over with the Ratchet and Clank-style promotional videos and animated movie feel of its upcoming massively multiplayer online sci-fi role-playing game. WildStar path system, rewarding players for playing how they want to play, is a think, creamy layer of frosting on an annoyingly…

It's not the stunning CGI movie quality trailer for NCsoft and Carbine's WildStar that has my heart beating so hard.
