In the latest video showing off features in their forthcoming MMO Wildstar, developers Carbine Studios explain what aiming is. Don’t worry: it’s less ridiculous than it sounds (although there’s no way I’m not mocking a video which says its goal is to explain aiming).
It’s apparently a bit of a game changer, with free-form targeting meaning that it’s easy to miss and that you’ll actually have to be careful when trying to line up abilities that pierce or do AoE damage. Even group PvE changes, as tanks have action-y ways to mitigate damage, and healers have to avoid attacks and aim their heals.
Wildstar‘s looking like it might be something a little bit interesting. Check out the video for yourself below.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
