WildStar offers many of the same tenets and action as other MMOs
WildStar’s liveliness plays a key role in making the game accessible and attractive to newcomers, but it also belies its depth. While it’s possible to progress alone – and there’s plenty to do if you choose to play that way – group encounters, raids and challenging instances are introduced early and accompany the experience all the way to level 50 and beyond. This is the most demanding MMOG we’ve played in years, its difficulty compounded by a combat system that places heavy emphasis on movement and positioning alongside a precipitously deep gear and upgrade system.

It could also potentially make a great gateway MMO; since WildStar offers many of the same tenets and action as other MMOs, this one could be a great way to determine your interest in online gaming without hitting the knowledge barrier of established franchises. WildStar just released in June, so the community is still young, learning, and tolerant of newcomers. If you’re looking for a new world to dive into, fly a ship to Nexus and get started.



Monster enemies possess their own attack patterns and these become increasingly elaborate. Bosses create mazes with their projectiles and force reactions from players. While the healer-damage-tank system is deeply familiar, WildStar’s new ideas recalibrate the way the system functions, and raids in particular demand a degree of dexterity and coordination that goes beyond what has been done in the genre before.

The below are some available classes the game will feature have been announced.

Stalker
Stalkers are feared throughout the galaxy as silent and deadly assassins who always eliminate their targets. They’re also masters of tactical combat, strategically controlling the battlefield with proximity mines and leaving piles of corpses in their wake

Warrior
Warriors are unstoppable juggernauts on the battlefield, using a combination of heavy weaponry, powerful armour and advanced technology to take care of business. They have access to a wide array of strategic technological capabilities designed to damage, disarm, or incapacitate their enemies.

Spellslinger
Spellslingers are deadly and dangerous gunners, often working as bounty hunters, bodyguards, and guns-for-hire. They have an acrobatic agility and fight with a unique style that's a lethal combination of magic, reflexes and instinct.
