Our friends over at Massively had not one but two different interviews with developers of the anything-but-WoW MMO Wildstar: Executive Producer Jeremy Gaffney and Senior Community Manager David Bass. And one of the biggest things that stood out to our TWIMMO crew was when Gaffney said that players will be able to use the environment to help in combat situations.
Gary mentioned that one of his biggest annoyances in even the most modern MMOs is when the NPCs he’s fighting do not even consider what is happening around them. For instance, if the player were to drop several feet to the ground he would take some damage, but if an NPC were to do the same, no damage would be taken. Gary exclaims that it would be nice if an MMO would do that. It’s completely possible that WildStar will.
