WildStar, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game from Carbine Studios, will be playable at PAX East, and the game's developers will appear on three different panels during the show, the company announced today.
Visitors to the booth for NCsoft, WildStar's publisher and Carbine's parent company, will have the opportunity to play the game in two different ways. People who aren't familiar with WildStar can try the Levian Bay zone, while experienced players can check out the tougher Farside zone. And PvP fans will have the option of playing a 10-on-10 Battlegrounds match. In addition to the NCsoft booth, #562, WildStar will be available in the Intel LAN area.
The NCsoft booth will allow visitors to pre-order WildStar for a chance to win a replica of the Lego rocket house being built at the booth, and the publisher will be selling Rowsdower plushies for $18 as well.
PAX East will also include three panels featuring WildStar developers. During "WildStar: $#!& Just Got Real," set for 2:30-3:30 p.m. ET in the Main Theatre on Friday, April 11, Carbine will show off the upcoming MMO and answer fans' questions. Stephan Frost, design producer at Carbine, will appear on two other panels, "Next Generation MMO Games: What's Next for Multiplayer Trends & Tech" (2-3 p.m., Saturday, April 12, Condor Theatre) and "MMORPG.com - The Future of Online Games" (4:30-5:30 p.m., Saturday, April 12, Albatross Theatre).
Earlier this month, NCsoft announced that WildStar will be released June 3 on Windows PC. Check out our preview for more. PAX East 2014 runs from April 11-13 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston.
