 Contracts Making Every Kill Matter

Carbine recently announced contracts as part of the next WildStar update. We had the chance to talk to Lead Systems Designer Joe Piepiora about contracts to find out more.


Loremageddon & the Future of the Story

Carbine Studios has been giving players and fans a treat with the recently started WildStar Loremageddon series that will span eleven episodes and lays the groundwork for future installments and much more. We caught up with Carbine's Chad More to talk about this and other topics. Read on!


A Visit to Carbine, Part Three

This is the third and final entry in a series of articles detailing a visit to Carbine Studios, home of WildStar. In this segment, we’ll cover my discussions with team members who handle Operations and Crafting, with a bonus side visit to the game’s composer. The two previous entries in this series are available here and here.


A Visit to Carbine Part Two

Today’s segment of a Visit to Carbine details the interviews I conducted with developers who focus on Itemization, Housing, and the in-game economy. We went over some basics of the systems and discussed new ideas coming down the pike for improvements. The first part of this series is available here.


A Visit to Carbine Part 1

It's not every day that a reporter gets permission to visit a game studio and conduct multiple interviews of various developers, but Carbine Studios granted said permission, and we're here to discuss the results of this visit with the folks who make WildStar. This is the first in a series of three articles so keep an eye out for parts two and three in the next little while.


Donatelli & Moore Respond to Concerns

WildStar has come under a lot of fire, but it’s criticism that developer Carbine is eager to address. In a deep interview, Product Director Mike Donatelli and Creative Director Chad Moore reveal their plans to turn the MMO around.


The Future of Crafting

Where crafting fits in the grand scope of WildStar has been unclear for some time. While we have seen numerous outflows of information about itemization, we haven’t seen much specific to crafting. There is a prevalent feeling of dissatisfaction within the crafting community with regards to specialization, craftings place in the economic footprint and the burden of the RNG monster always affecting the output of items more than the skill of the craftsman.


The Nexus Saga Begins

WildStar’s story is changing. Everything that we’ve played up till now has been a prologue to the Nexus Saga, a multi-chapter epic adventure involving iconic heroes. Chapter 1 begins with Journey to Omnicore 1, and Creative Director Chad Moore was on hand to tell columnist Gareth Harmer all about it.


State of the Game Interview - Part 2

Did you know that Nexus, the focal planet of WildStar, used to be called Meridia? Or that a player-created addon is now pivotal to Carbine’s debugging process? During Gamescom, I got the chance to sit down with three of the studio’s development supremos: Lead Client Engineer Jon Wiesman, Lead Content Designer Megan Starks, and Technical Design Lead Nick Roth.
