WildStar’s Destination Arcterra arrives on March 30th

I SAID, WHAT'S COOLER THAN BEING COOL?

Have you eagerly awaited the chance to venture into the coldest parts of Nexus? You only need to wait a couple more days. WildStar‘s Destination Arcterra patch is arriving on March 30th, complete with the eponymous new zone and a variety of content therein. Much of it will probably be snow-related, so you should prepare yourself for the puns about “chilling out” now.

But what about your friend Trab, who refuses to get excited about anything without video footage to back up its existence? Fear not, you can get Trab excited as well; just show him the patch trailer awaiting just below. You are, of course, welcome to watch the video yourself and not tell Trab about it.

Denice J Cook deekay_zero A F2P launch on steam will ALWAYS bring in tons of people, the real challenge for Carbine will be to try and also keep those people interested and playing. I’ve seen plenty of smaller MMOs launch on steam and get a hefty population boost, only to be empty again after a few months.

jeremy2020 Wandris DugFromTheEarth BritoBruno So short sighted. A game does not need to release a new expansion every year to be successful. It needs to keep people engaged and interested. Wildstar has failed to do this, but the game itself has all the pieces to change. Money is only wasted if you abandon a project when it is not necessary. They made some subtle mistakes which has undermined the game as a whole but that means someone could still change course without a huge cost. MMO’s are marathons that require careful cultivation not sprints, and while many players fail to realize this companies should not. Wildstar is less than 2 years old and despite its early problems there is no reason that it can’t last for 20 if the people running it take a step back and make better decisions and better uses of time rather than trying to mirror other games with underlying design problems of their own.

I would hope they’d let Steam have a good, long crack at it before throwing in the towel (Tera’s best year out of all four has been 2015, because they debuted on Steam), but this *is* NCSoft we’re talking about.

Denice J Cook deekay_zero the rumour is by the end of the year if the steam launch doesn’t go extremely well on an longer term basis.

idk where you heard “couple months” >> if it’s polygon as you mention above i would take anything you read on that site with a grain of salt, rumours wise.

Wildstar is sunsetting in a couple months, so I wouldn’t wait too long there.  ;)

I have never played Wildstar because….NCSoft.  They burned me on Tabula Rasa, Dungeon Runners and of course City of Heroes.  Three strikes and you’re out.

However, I don’t think Polygon should have leaked the info from “inside sources” when NCSoft recently canned 70 devs that said Wildstar is closing down and the remainder of the team is being let go in a couple months.  Now, why would *anyone* play Wildstar?

Wildstar makes me sad. It’s that good friend you love to see but you never hang out with that just can’t get his life together. He’s smart hard working and the life of the party but he gets fired from every job and you know that one day he will have one too many drinks and wrap his 2004 Mazda 6 around a telephone pole.

” Your talking like its a done deal.”

It is already a done deal, if the cancelled launch in China wasn’t enough of an indicator.

DugFromTheEarth deekay_zero BritoBruno >At the start of the F2P release, there were TONS of players, 
this is what i was addressing. there were tonnes of players. more than their so called megaservers could handle.
the game is failing now more than before for the reasion that theme parks have finit content and you can only farm world bosses so long before it gets old. it’s a failing of the model and formula the game emulates that is failing in other like games no matter what ffxiv players claim that would never raid in any other wow clone but will raid in that game.
the formula is old tired and ready to retire for the next few years. what will we get if anything to replace it? who knows? there are would be wow clone usurpers but so far it’s more of the same has been would be wow killer darkfall shit. 
so yeah… wildstar may be a bad game, but it’s the best at what it is. even if people no longer want what it is.
