Carbine announce sci-fi MMO, WildStar

NCsoft has announced WildStar, a sci-fi MMO that’s been in development at Carbine ever since the studio was founded in 2007.

Top talent is hard at work on the game, including Kevin Beardslee (a lead developer on WoW), Tim Cain (Fallout programmer and co-founder of Troika), and Jeremy Gaffney (City of Heroes and Asheron’s Call). As the rather awesome intro trailer reveals, the game is set on an unnamed planet at the edge of space. Players can take the role of Explorers, Soldiers, Scientists or Settlers as the land is explored and new enemies are fought.

No word on release, but a build of the game is being shown off at Gamescom right now.
