This past weekend marked the first beta since WildStar has opened preorders of the game, and I was lucky enough to get a bit of time to play. I’ve got a passion for smaller races, so it was no surprise that I created a little Chua to explore the Dominion side with. Chua are genderless, which I find pretty interesting as far as a lore standpoint goes, and come on who wouldn’t be in love with those eyes. Don’t let the endearing face fool you though, my medic is full of crazy ideas and has a wild side (like an animal).
There was an audio glitch that prevented me from playing with sounds on (if you started in the Dominion area I bet you know which one it was) but aside from that I had a great time and I love double jump. I know, what a small mechanic to make such a big deal about, but I really enjoyed bouncing around.
I don’t normally play betas very long because once I’m interested in a game I invest in it and wait for release (chaulk it up to not wanting to spoil things for myself when it goes live) and WildStar is no different. I played, but not a huge amount, wanting to keep things fresh and not burn out.
The details are fantastic.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
