Chad Moore is moving up the ranks in Carbine Studios; after a long tenure as the lore expert, Moore is now the director behind WildStar. What does that mean? Well, that’s all to be found in his letter to the community on the state of the game. Moore looks back over the past year of updates and development for the game and provides a picture of what the game will look like, starting with Destination Arcterra, the game’s first major patch following the free-to-play transition.
The development team is also working on the game’s next big raid (The Redmoon Terror) and taking players beyond Nexus proper with a trip to the Halon Ring. There’s also another Expedition in the works alongside an item upgrading system and the vague promise of more work going into the game’s PvP. It’s an optimistic letter and should hopefully give players awaiting more content reason to look forward to the future. We’ve also taken the liberty of reaching out to NCsoft concerning the status of product director Mike Donatelli in the wake of Moore’s new position.
