Some major updates from Carbine this afternoon as they announce that their MMO Wildstar will be released this year.
With the announcement they have lifted the lid on more game details including the Exile faction, the Explorer and Soldier paths, and a brand new zone.
In addition to the new videos and info, Executive Producer Jeremy Gaffney has posted a lengthy blog update on the official website in which he discusses levelling and end-game content.
Deradune: A new zone full of savage wildlife, both native and introduced. It’s the starting zone for a new race that we’ll be talking more about next week.
The Exile Faction: Comprised of a loose group of cast-offs and mercenaries, the Exiles were forced from their home planets and banded together out of necessity. They were the first to settle Nexus.
The Soldier Path: Designed to cater to players who prefer combat gameplay. Soldiers are given special path-specific quests and actions that provide a varied combat experience, as outlined in the in this video.
The Explorer Path: The choice for map completionists and in-game orienteers. The Explorer Path is all about getting to that high peak and areas others can’t reach. The particulars of the Explorer are explained in the following video.
