WildStar is coming to Steam soon

After Carbine Studios laid off 40% of its workforce earlier this year, I had a horrible feeling that its game WildStar would lose its legs shortly after. Thankfully, that doesn’t seem to be the case. The cartoony MMORPG appears to be doing alright, and when it launches on Steam, I think it’s going to do even better.

Hang on, WildStar is coming to Steam? Yes, yes it is! It’ll be out tomorrow already as a matter of fact, on the 9th of June (via PC Gamer).

We’re looking forward to seeing new and old players alike jumping back into the fray and exploring the vast continents of Nexus, taking on a grand adventure to investigate this lost planet and learn about its origins, but more importantly kicking some butt! We’ll be active on the Steam platform providing news updates, patch notes, and interacting on the Steam community sections.

Praise Gaben! Personally, I hate having games on my PC that are tied to a launcher that isn’t Steam (Blizzard titles on the Battlenet app being the only exception). I’m sure many feel the same, and thus, will be grateful to add WildStar to their library, even if only for the sake of convenience.

With this launch, I’m hoping WildStar will find a new audience to bolster its numbers. I really enjoyed the MMO when I reviewed it two years ago, and I’d love for more people to play it. It is now free-to-play after all, so there really is no excuse!

WildStar is a fantastical sci-fi MMO where you can join your friends or undertake your own epic adventures on the fabled planet Nexus! Explore the huge and amazingly vibrant world packed with unique characters, exotic locations, thrilling challenges and dark mysteries. Recruit fellow citizens of Nexus to solve the primordial puzzles of the universe itself as you experience exhilarating action combat, deep character customization, and one of the most powerful housing systems ever seen in a MMORPG.

Does WildStar appeal to you at all? Will you be playing it now that it’s coming to Steam?

    Nope.. Just nope. This game already stole money from me once, it will not steal my time as well.

    I bought this on release. Played for 2 months. Didn’t resub. Jumped back in when it went F2P. Played a week. Didn’t go back. It’s missing something. A magic, something that brings you back for more. While the world and premise are cool, it doesn’t translate to in-game.

      The combat is great. But something is definitely missing from the “fun” mix

        I had a lot of fun building my house though. Seriously, half my game time in 2 months was spent on that. Really cool.

        Nah I make friends easily in MMOs. I was part of a guild, playing with people that were cool. It’s just that I had no desire to actually, you know, play.

          I guess when the people left the WoW team the guy that made WoW fun stayed behind at WoW XD

            Huh? No there was only 1 other ex-wow player in our guild.

            The Developers of Wildstar were Ex-WoW people. So the one person that made WoW fun stayed behind at WoW.

    Still, saying that. Its worth a shot. F2P, not P2W, mechanics are solid, and if you’re not overly fussy like me – there’s lots of charm to be found, and lots of fun to be had.

    Wildstar had terrible game play.

      Because it required more than a “tab -> press 1” to win?

        No because they built game play thinking everyone will have 9 ms latency to the server. You want that type of game play then try terra. It’s also free.

          Except Tera has no charm, is dull, and boring. WildStar has a lot of all of those, and its gameplay is actually much better than Tera too.

            Wildstar was the only mmo ever that I dropped a month after launch. I was just that bad. And I played the original sto.

            Also meh. Bad voice acting and worthless characters/story made me stop playing that. Gameplay was good, world was beautiful though.

            The combat was pretty. As for lore, I also had no clue what was going on

            lel yeah. Skip the cutscenes and you miss nothing. Pity, it’s really a beautiful game. I liked the weapon system too.

    Hope that updates are downloaded automatically as part of the normal steam updates. Always annoys me when you have to actually launch the game to download updates. Steam ends up logging 100+ hours of game time just because you left the installer open :).
