In the video Senior Combat Designer Chris Lynch explains that currently the group limit is set at five and while they like where this limit is at, things can and will be tweaked if the need arises.
Players will find Wildstar using the holy trinity for their group play. Players will have a choice of picking either a healer, damage dealer, or a tank to deal with mobs of enemies and the bosses they’ll find in Wildstar.
In the video, freeform combat was confirmed to work beyond just dealing damage. Players will find that healing, buffing, debuffing and other game play mechanics will also use the freeform combat system.
This means players will need good communication, teamwork, and skill to ensure success.
Even though it was a small slice of combat, does the idea of a freeform system in group play sound enticing, or are you waiting for more information to come out before you stake your claim? Leave a comment below and let us know.
