    feeling more and more it'll be a full year from now that this game releases.

     

    way too much that we have little info on, teo races still to be revealed, two classes, still in limited player testing. unless things like raids, dungeons, pvp/battlegrounds, the new races and classes will be near 'perfect' by the time the unlock for testing, i cant see thsi being ready within the next few monthes for a 2013 release

    I think it is very unlikely for a 2013 release. However I think we will get some good info this coming wed.

    Not a frequent poster but one of my good friends is a sound engineer, currently in talks with Carbine. They want him to work on Wildstar, which indicates to me it isn't exactly ready for a 2013 release.

    That would suck, I want to play this game already, however, if they add more depth between now an launch, more features and systems and really polish the hell out of the game... I'd be happy to wait a little longer. here's hoping I get a beta invite soon :D

    What's the word on those beta invites? How often are they giving them out these days?

    It's about to enter CB3. They will invite a lot of people supposedly , but mainly people that contribute to the game somehow or helped stress testing the server. They will continuing inviting more people in future stages of the close beta.

    Gaffney has said the plan is to have a new phase every 5 weeks with a massive wave of invites for each phase.  5 weeks would put beta 3 coming  very soon.  Hopefully in the next few weeks.  Meaning another wave of invites and another chance at an invite.

    I was curious how far along things are myself, so I decided to look at WoW's closed and open beta period for a little insight (since many of the Wildstar devs worked on WoW).

    Taken from WoWWiki:

    Starting before March of 2004, Blizzard started signing up Closed Beta Test testers from an unknown pool of people using an undisclosed method of selection. The Closed Beta Trial ran for about 7 months ending in more widely available stress test and then an open beta before final release around the end of November 2004.

    The "Closed Beta" was the first phase of Blizzard's stress test. There were three servers and virtually no lag existed. This closed beta is also known as the "First Stress Test". The servers were split up into the following:

    1. PvE Server (Original Closed Beta Server)
    2. PvP Server (Added near the end of Closed Beta)
    3. Beta Server 1
    WoW was also known to have a very long open beta period (for mmorpg standards) so I have a feeling there will be a LOT more testing before the game gets any where close to release.

    delay and lack of news is due the optimizing and programming wildstar to be released 2014 on ps4 and pc :)

    Eeer... the Devs post a new article on their web site every Wednesday.

    Granted, they have not been very ground smashing stuff lately, but so is life.

    There is also a recorded panel they had at Rezzed down at eurogamer.net

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-06-22-live-video-rezzed-developer-sessions

    Also check out the fan websites for info. There is another thread with the major 3 outlined. Wildstar Central, Wildstar Forums and Wildstar Roleplay. Wildstar Developers are often around answering questions and interacting with the community.

    lol is that what you wish?

    It won't be ported. Maps are too open and combat requires a freaking mouse and a keyboard.

    Unfortunately, the NDA precludes anyone admitting that they are even in the beta, let alone share any details. Of course, there are leaks out there but I wouldn't recommend seeking them out - there' quite a bit of misinformation in those leaks! (since the bulk come from stress testers who haven't had a lot of time with the game compared to Core or regular Beta testers).

    Let's hope that don't ruin it for stress tester that really wanna help in future close betas.

    It won't be ported. Maps are too open and combat requires a freaking mouse and a keyboard. 

    The combat looks like GW2 and Neverwinter system with limited skills on one hotbar with dodging and I use a gamepad on GW2 and Neverwinter combat.  And the fact that its a action combat is even more reason for a gamepad.  Final Fantasy XIV ARR is more of a traditional mmo than Wildstar with more active skills by the time your mid and high level and SE made that game fully functional for gamepads.  And the PS4 has high end PC specs plus it will have Planetside 2 on max graphics with the maximum 2000 players on its sandbox map.  Wildstars graphics arent going to be a problem at all for the PS4 lol.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDzv16ecEGI I can easily map this to a gamepad using xpadder

    I agree that a 2013 release feels unlikely.
  • MargulisMargulis Glendale, AZPosts: 1,614Member
    Yeah it's almost July and hardly any new info coming or even another beta test.  Definitely don't think 2013 anymore.  So this and ESO moving to 2014 at some point - going to be REAL interesting if Everquest Next ends up hitting around that time too. 
  • VolkmarVolkmar EspooPosts: 2,497Member Uncommon

    On one hand, I know they should take all the time they need.

    On the other, the delay of ESO to 2014 opens a window of opportunity, namely: Christmas 2013. If Wildstar can get released before or on that period, then it would have an initial boost of sales that might help the game.

    Of course it is clear the devs are going for the Long Term here (EIGHT years of development time will tell you that), so maybe that is not so important.
