WildStar Wednesday: San Diego Comic Con

Written by Troy “Aether” Hewitt on July 17, 2013

Hello Nexians!

@Team_WIldStar has been spending some serious quality time planning our presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.  We’ve got a panel! We’ve got an Arkship event! We’ve got a party! We even have special Nexian cocktails as created by one of our very own community members from, Chemical Cutthroat, aka Qizzer!

And we’ve packed it all into one single Friday, July 19th.

Let’s talk Comic-Con panel first! It’s titled Bringing an MMO to Life: The Stories and Characters of WildStar!

Storytelling and character development in MMOs can be extremely challenging, but both are vital when trying to launch a new IP. Our Lead Narrative Designer Chad Moore, Content Director Mike Donatelli, Creative Director Matt Mocarski, and Design Producer Stephen Frost will break down how characters and stories are developed in WildStar, and the ways they are reflected in the game. Join Carbine as they talk about the creation of key characters, the development of story arcs, and how it all culminates into making the player the star of the show.

The team will unveil never-before-seen game footage, the reveal the hotly anticipated final two WildStar races, and your chance for an exclusive invite to a VIP Arkship event! We’ll be giving a special, small group of people the opportunity to hang out with Carbine Developers, where they will be the first ones to get their hands on the super-secret content we are taking to this year’s gamescom and PAX Prime!

We’ll end the night with a big party, WildStar style that’s open to everyone! Come join us, have a drink on us, and take some time to navigate Nexus on your own in our designated WildStar gameplay lounge.

It’s special Nexian cocktails, music, dancing Carbine Developers, a photo bomb booth, and the opportunity to meet one of our most favorite voice Actors in WildStar, the amazingly talented star of stage and screen, Courtenay Taylor!

Of course that’s not enough! This is Carbine Studios after all! We’ll be giving away some serious prizes throughout the night, as provided by our friends from Alienware and Logitech!
