WildStar is a science fiction massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by Carbine Studios and published by NCSoft. It was released on June 3, 2014, for Microsoft Windows. The game is set on the planet Nexus, which was once home to a technologically advanced race known as the Eldan. The Eldan have disappeared, leaving behind a wealth of technology and secrets for players to explore.
WildStar features a variety of content for players to enjoy, including:
- Exploration: Players can explore the vast world of Nexus, completing quests, defeating enemies, and discovering hidden treasures.
- Combat: WildStar offers a variety of combat options, including ranged, melee, and support. Players can choose from five different classes: Warrior, Esper, Spellslinger, Medic, and Engineer.
- Player versus player (PvP): Players can compete against each other in a variety of PvP modes, including arenas, battlegrounds, and Warplots.
- Player housing: Players can purchase and customize their own homes, which they can use to store items, craft, and relax.
WildStar was initially met with positive reviews, with critics praising its graphics, combat, and humor. However, the game struggled to maintain a large player base, and NCSoft announced in 2018 that it would be shutting down the game’s servers.
In 2019, a group of fans and developers launched a WildStar private server called NexusTK. NexusTK is a free-to-play server that offers a modified version of the original WildStar game.
As of 2023, there are still a small number of people who play WildStar, both on the official servers and on private servers. However, the game is no longer as popular as it once was.
