Gardens, Windmills, & "Defensive" Cannons Optional
In a newly released trailer, it has been confirmed that WildStar, the upcoming MMORPG from Carbine Studios, will have player housing implemented. Presented by the Protostar Corporation, the video demonstrates some of the ways players will be able to customise their virtual home, including the option of having a floating island (that was hinted at in the Friends & Family Beta video) if you want some peace and quiet. See it for yourself after the jump.
We were already fairly interested in WildStar before (as you might be able to tell from our previous coverage) but the confirmation of player housing as a sandbox element is exciting news. With the Settler player path almost certainly going to play a strong role in this aspect of the game, it looks as if Carbine are on course to deliver the freedom they insisted would be available when they unveiled WildStar at Gamescom last year.
We'll be sure to keep you updated with more news on this one as we get it.
