WildStar’s hoverboard races pay homage to Back to the Future Day

    
15

If social media hasn’t repeatedly informed you of the fact that this is “Back to the Future Day” — the day in which Marty and Doc traveled to 2015 — then WildStar is there to get you brought up to speed (88 miles per hour).

In addition to its currently running Shade’s Eve event, Carbine started a Hoverboard zPrix Invitational today that will run for five days. During the event, players can hop on their hoverboards and complete three different race tracks with the hopes of earning costume pieces, decor, toys, and other rewards. There’s even a “LeDorian” hoverboard with familiar accessories to be bought in the cash shop.

Carbine said that the event came about from two separate projects eventually colliding (in a good way) and that the team has been holding fierce internal competitions to see which dev is the best at each course.

Nordavind The back to the future skin hoverboard was already given to everyone who did Wildstar beta.

mttgamer I would prefer if they weren’t overlapping, I still need to get Halloween stuff! But I understand why they did this to coincide with the BTTF hype.

Media trying to force this event was really sad and pathetic.

The LeDorian is a “bit” pricey :(

This is a complete blast… Hover boards were already awesome but giving them their own event and place in the world is cool!
