Community team outlines WildStar beta plans
It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for more news for WildStar, Carbine Studios‘ MMORPG. This week’s post has the community team promising more interaction with fans, but not through traditional means, in preparation for the WildStar beta.
Claiming “[d]esign decisions should never seem to come out of thin air,“ the community team at Carbine Studios says it wants fans involved the WildStar beta “from beginning to end.” That means design meetings on live streams and through phone. That’s right, if the developers like an idea posted on the game’s official forum, they’ll try to call the person making the suggestion, and it could lead to a live design meeting for all to watch.
Carbine Studios also pledged the WildStar beta will be a bit different. Instead of being the typical early game demo so many betas are today, the studio wants to make the WildStar beta a “a safe environment for feedback.” The community team added, “We want our beta to be different, to be an opportunity for players to tell us whether our direction is right or wrong.“
The studio is also going to be more active in other parts of the Internet. That includes Facebook, Reddit, general gaming forums, and even guild websites.
All that and more can be expected from Carbine Studios’ community team as the WildStar beta begins, the post claims. The team says it wants to “push the envelope” when it comes to community interaction.
