WildStar’s Warplots mix home improvements and 40-on-40 PvP

Wildstar

Carbine Studios’ newest trailer for WildStar aims to teach you what happens when you mix house renovation and large-scale battles.

Warplots are WildStar‘s way of creating 40 vs 40 havoc on┬áthe battlefield. You get a crew together, build and design a Warplot – which seems to be a giant battle area of doom, customised to your liking – and drop it onto a battlefield, where you can start capturing resources to power up its functions. Of course, another team will be there with a Warplot of their own, so you’ll be bumping heads with them on a regular basis. Good thing you can drop orbital strikes, giant robots, and dungeon bosses on them, eh?

The trailer below’s easily worth a watch, if only because it follows WildStar‘s usual irreverent sense of humour. Have a look and see what you think. WildStar itself is due out on 3 June.

    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 things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really 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.
