imageThe Arcterra Assessment - WildStar Previews

It’s been a long wait, but WildStar’s test realm has just been patched with a ton of new content. The latest update, Destination: Arcterra, introduces a new frozen wasteland zone that’s packed with cruel, foreboding architecture. It also promises to continue the Nexus Saga, picking up the world story and leading us on a search for the Vault of the Archon.

Read the full story here

    I'm loving this game, I left Rift and WoW and never looked back!

    Absolutely love the humor and art style!

    Wildstar deserves so much more credit as a mmorpg than it really gets.

    I play it here and there if only for it's style, sci fi theme and general wetern gunslinger versus British tea slinging nazii's.

    I myself and super excited we are seeing content coming. Considering I was worried this game was sinking faster than ....a sinking ship that is also sinking.

    Daily zones become obsolete in all MMOs as content progresses.

    Unless you are a lore hound, a completionist, or really want something from the rep vendors, there is barely a reason to hit the old daily zones. The contract boards do have some of the bosses from the old zones in the kill list, so that always brings a quick spike in population.

    I just did not find it fun at all,not even remotely.Besides that the graphics and not sure why gave me a headache.To me it felt like that Skyforge game,couldn't wait to get out.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    I play this casually. Have since launch. I like the grouping in the game and the housing

    This game has some good things but also some bad things like crafting which is a disaster.

    want 7 free days of playing? Try this

    The art direction of this game is top notch. I'll definitely give it a shot one of these days, hopefully it will stick around

    reallY? I never played a game where the art style annoyed me more than in wildstar. I tried to get into it, but just couldnt do it because of the art. it looks like a childrens cartoon.

    I love cartoon art styles, but Wildstar really irritated me. Felt like they were trying too hard to win the audiences hearts, which ended up pushing people away instead.

    If the revenues of this game continue so low, it won't last one more year.

    SO you decorate your house to look cartoony?I bet you don't ,i bet you have mature looking decor.People of mature age do not like cartoony,they like nice looking things,that is why we heard nothing but hype over Aions character creator and now BDO's character creator.You NEVER hear about cartoony characters as great looking.

    Really wish Wildstar added a new race or a new class by now.

    I like the art style... A lot... But I SIMPLY CAN'T give this game more than an hour before I want to puke all over it. We have seen it before in soooo many forms and I feel like it needs to stop. I have pretty much quit gaming anyway and will probably never play a game seriously again... But if I would, I want it to be a MMO. WildStar will NEVER be that game.

    Have you actually played the game to say this?

    Many many of the systems in Wildstar are unique...

    That depends on your target demographic, i understand that 8 year olds in particular love Pixar Movies. :p

    I find it ironic that on a game website someone would insinuate animated movies are only for kids XD
    It's like you've never seen them. 
    12 million people found WoW graphics acceptable. I myself didn't, not for the initial release anyway.  I was playing City of Heroes at the time, and I didn't like any of the WoW races or starting areas. The Draenei were the first ones I actually liked. Wildstar on the other hand has great character, style and variety in it's artwork.

    I love the art style and humour too in this game. I was not fond of the combat but everything was so great. I would still be playing if not for the combat.
