Carbine's Sci-Fi MMOG WildStar Announced

NCsoft announces WildStar at Gamescom, a science fiction MMOG, revealing this is the project in development at Carbine Studios since back in 2007 when this studio was formed by industry veterans Kevin Beardslee (a lead developer on WoW), Tim Cain (Fallout programmer and co-founder of Troika), and Jeremy Gaffney (City of Heroes and Asheron’s Call). They say they have a polished three-level build of the game to show off to attendees of the trade show, and offer this cinematic introductory trailer and a very large batch of screenshots. Here's word on the game itself, followed by the embedded version of the intro trailer.
Developed by NCsoft’s Southern California-based Carbine Studios, WildStar offers epic high adventure, where players make their mark as Explorers, Soldiers, Scientists or Settlers and lay claim to a mysterious planet on the edge of known space. WildStar’s iconic visual style and “Momentum Mechanics” immerse players in a deep world stacked with content, challenges and rewards that respond to the play style choices of individual players. Depending on a combination of faction, race, class and path, WildStar will present gamers with unending surprises, mini-quests and challenges, ensuring that their experiences are fun and fresh.

Sorry about Necroing this thread, I see most posters aren't interested but has anyone signed up for the Beta?

It doesn't seem that bad to me, though I haven't really played most of the games it's inspired from for more than 2 or 3 months. Plus Tim Cain worked on this for almost 6 years and huge fan of all the exInterplay staff.

That's a troll from Dark Age of Camelot. Mythic should sue - then, finally, maybe they'll make some money.

NCsoft just keeps shoveling out that shit.

Guild Wars, City of Heroes, Lineage II. And then of course we will have Guild Wars 2 and now WildStar. These are do do?

-EDIT-

Just watched part of the trailer instead of relying on the pic

OK, it's more sci-fi than I thought. But if you're going to distinguish yourself from the fantasy MMO's by going the sci-fi route, I suggest emphasizing the differences more. Instead of rocky terrain and simple analogs for sorceress and barbarian/troll, maybe something that looks more space-y.

Like a abandoned futuristic city with metal, and the heroes not wearing what might as well be WoW clothes with the occasional LED.

But that's just my opinion: why bother going the sci-fi route to be different, if so much of it's going to be the same.

It's not science fiction. It's space-opera. Big difference.

Space-opera really is just fantasy set in space. So naturally you get what you see here...same old same old, with a new background image.

'Hey, what if we mixed FFXII and WoW, and turned it into a new IP?'

It does look kind of appealing though - I could probably play it.

There's a reason it's PEGI 12 and it's because it's a game for tweens.

Remember when you were a teenager, and the absolute OCEANS of free time you had? That's where.

Did you guys ever think that maybe they weren't making this game for YOU?

And did you ever think that maybe people just comment on stuff "just cause?"

I guess I'm getting too old that it's actually annoying me with all the gratuitous T&A in EVERY game nowadays. I saw sci-fi MMO and my initial reaction was "Cool!", clicked on the first screenshot and saw a girl with short-shorts, low-cut top and bunny ears... *sighs*



Of all the things about this that could annoy me...

...the chick with bunny ears didn't make the list.
