WildStar’s Nexus Forever emulator shares a slice of progress

aw hell

Could a WildStar emulator be closer to reality than we previously thought? Back in May, we reported that a community project known as “Nexus Forever” had been taking the various parts of the now-defunct sci-fi MMORPG and working on putting them back together.

A Twitter user named Kirmmin claims that he or she has been working on this project for a while and posted a short Medic combat skill video as proof of the progress being made. “For those unaware, I have been a contributor to the Nexus Forever WildStar emulator project for the past six months,” Kirmmin wrote. “In that time, it’s transformed from a static, empty world to one that’s a little more familiar. I wanted to share this casting demo to show some of our progress.”

Check it out for yourself after the break and let us know — if a WildStar rogue server does get up and running, will you be returning to Nexus?

I’d play it BUT they’ll have to fix the stupid xp progression whereby if you could end up having insufficient quests to reach max lvl.

I’ll be rejoining it ASAP. I miss Wildstar a lot and nothing is scratching the itch so far. :)

I would play only if they made changes to it. The devs idea’s for it is why it failed so hard. Bringing back the same kind of crap won’t help it.

Just make the PvE less difficult. Not everyone wants to wipe all night and get called “cupcake”.

People come up with a million reason why it failed and this is still the one I agree with. Wildstar was too hard for people who didn’t come from End Game raiding in other games. I was able to do the attunment and what not but I was a Raider. Some of what they had going on in Dungeons were atleast 10 man Raid mechanics(at the time). I’ll never forget the one Dev tweeting that people were asking them to tne down the difficulty. He said “No” and #Hardcore. He ended up at Blizzard. Where is the justice?! lol

That would be a huge mistake. The challenge of the content was a massive appeal for myself and many.

Endgame raiding wasn’t that hard at the end of it’s life. It was more accessible too. I’m willing to bet they’ll launch the last version of the game.

Indeed. I remember my first go at the lvl 15 dungeon & wiping over & over – even on trash pulls.

My hope? That they bring the original tutorial back and not that godawful one they gave us when the game went F2P

On the plus side you had the option to skip it entirely which is something I always appreciate in any mmo after my 3rd alt or so.

This game should live on. It was a cool world with great environments set to awesome music. The combat was top notch too. The main flaw was the game’s management. That should be less of an issue now… in theory lol

I would absolutely play Wildstar emulators, I swore an oath.

I would play it. I really miss the combat of Wildstar. No other MMO combat quite catches the magic of Wildstars combat. Elder Scrolls comes close but it’s still not the same. I just hope they add a function to disable the announcer saying “double kill” I had a friend who’s biggest complaint was that announcer.
