Along with The Elder Scrolls Online, I am really skeptical about WildStar as well. No, not that I have a hatred for Western developers (should have seen my Guild Wars 2 progress), but I am seeing nothing which really excites me. The new trailer attempts to simplify what WildStar is really about, so watch it!
Below is a prior video taken by IGN, as a guide through 1 of the game regions. Combat, interface and more are shown. Of course, this may not be the final product, but you should get a better sense of how the game will be like.
I would think that the major factor in WildStar’s success will be its business model. I don’t see a long-term future going with a monthly payment one, and let’s be honest, how many of you will be willing to fork out USD 15 a month for at least 1 year from the start?
