WildStar’s new game director, Chad “Pappy” Moore, has shared details about the development team’s plans for WildStar in 2016.
Along with the recently announced Destination Arcterra update, Moore revealed that future content “will take players to new places on planet Nexus ? and beyond!” Later this year players will be heading to the Halon Ring, which is described as “an asteroid belt around planet Nexus that is home to outlaws, marauders, and other unsavory individuals.”
Carbine is also working on a brand new Expedition as well as the Item Upgrades system, which will enable players to make their gear even more powerful.
Finally, the developer is “taking a close look at PvP,” and is working on a number of initiatives to improve the overall experience and encourage participation in both instanced and open-world PvP.
“Obviously, there?s a lot to be excited about as we look ahead to WildStar?s future, and I?m glad that we?ve been able to share it all with you,” Moore added. “I?d like to close by saying thanks to all of the WildStar fans out there who have been with us since the beginning, and also a thanks (and welcome!) to those just now coming to check it out for the first time.
“It might go without saying, but all of the hard work, passion, and creativity that the WildStar team pours into this game is because of all of you?and I feel lucky to be a part of it. I also want all of you to know that one of my primary goals as WildStar‘s Game Director is to make sure that we are always communicating with you. For me, making great games has always been about the dialogue between devs and players. Personally, I’m looking forward to continuing the conversation.”
