WildStar Wednesday reveals more details about the planet Nexus
For this week’s WildStar Wednesday, the mysterious friends-and-family tester has returned with his musings. This time, he shared his thoughts about Nexus, the planet WildStar, Carbine Studios’ MMORPG, takes place on.
For starters, it seems the WildStar Wednesday tester is enjoying his time on Nexus, largely due to its environmental variety: “It does feel like a place, albeit a semi hostile one that you are trying to tame and make your home. I find it quite enjoyable to lose myself in the world of Nexus, trying to discover its many mysteries. Each area and even some subareas have its own ecology that makes it stand out. As you travel through the world, you experience the change, not just view it.”
I’m not sure the description from the WildStar Wednesday post reveals anything different from other MMORPGs’ environments. In fact, in some MMORPGs, the change from map to map is too abrupt. From an aesthetic perspective, I was never a fan of Outlands in World of Warcraft because taking five steps resulted in a sudden transition from a barren wasteland to a lush swamp or forest. It never made sense to me. I hope that’s not what this WildStar Wednesday post is alluding to.
Still, it does seem like the WildStar Wednesday tester is really enjoying his time on Nexus. He says the areas are very immersing: “The story and environment are very engaging, it’s very difficult to rush through anything when you are so connected with the world around you. While you can ignore content and proceed through the zones, I would feel like I missed out on something if I did.”
If the world is really that captivating, I’m in. But I’ll have to experience Nexus myself before I put too much stock in this WildStar Wednesday’s description.
The WildStar Wednesday tester also took questions about some of the game’s mechanics and selling points. He says he would recommend the game to other MMO players, even though it hasn’t met all his expectations. He calls the combat very dynamic and says it’s easy to control. He also elaborates on paths, supposedly unique mechanics, and providing feedback, all of which can be read about in the full post.
