I like one of their Job listings on the Carbine website:

Battle-hardened Soldier

NCsoft is seeking an experienced fighter for a consulting position at Carbine Studios in Aliso Viejo, CA. Candidate would be assigned to their top-secret project.

To secure the position, the candidate must have:

Intergalactic security clearance
Proven experience in combat (especially with recently-discovered life-forms)
Extensive knowledge of cutting-edge weaponry and the ability to adapt to new technology as it is invented
Experience handling endless waves of enemies in seemingly hopeless situations (this is a plus)

Candidates will be subjected to daily obstacle courses requiring quick reflexes and MacGyver-like adaptability - loss of limbs practically guaranteed. Ability to tell horrific stories about scars by a campfire while chugging homemade whiskey expected.

MUST BE READY TO WORK BY AUGUST 17, 2011. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Hmmm.... Why does the warrior/mercenary remind me of Dark Age of Camelot's Midgard Trolls?

Does anyone know what type of MMO this is going to be? What is its competition? Thanks.

I think the most interesting thing is the Combat/Explorer/Collector/Artificer system.

It hasn't been detailed much, but apparently, depending on which of the paths you choose, you're essentially customizing your game experience. Combat gets missions/quests mostly related to killing stuff, Explorers find and can access areas of the game not open to other players, Collectors involve experiencing the lore and what have you, and Artificers are what I assume are basically treasure hunters.

Not sure exactly how the system will pan out, but it looks to be a fairly unique experience.

@Apakal

I agree, this system is what has me most excited at the moment. The Artificer, though, is supposed to emphasize crafting IIRC.

@Ghostspeaker

Ahh, that seems more logical. I was trying to think what the difference was between Artificer and Collector. Good call.

"If the game interests you, our own staffers will be getting a hands-on experience with WildStar on Friday"

Umm....could you ask if the purple rabbit/fox girl has a date?

The general look of the game reminds me a lot of Torchlight.

To me, this game will forever be Torchlight in Space!

I'm looking forward to your impressions. It looks to me as if somebody is daring to try something a little different, and that's always interesting.
