Wildstar Releases Video on Adventures: Group Instances with Multiple Progression Paths

Carbine Studios has released a new video detailing the “Adventures” from its upcoming MMO, Wildstar. The video is a little bit vague, but Adventures appear to be a form of instanced group play with multiple progression paths.

The video, which you can see above, is narrated by the “Caretaker”, who describes himself as a virtual construct created by the Nexus Elders to monitor scientific experiments on the planet. Problem is, the guy seems a little bipolar. The “Caretaker” will send your group into an instance where you can explore many different environments for research purposes. Judging from the video, he then may or may not try to kill you. Yikes.

Adventures are described as having multiple choices that can be made at different points throughout the instance. If you ever read a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book as a kid, it seems to be a similar concept. It’s not clear if Adventures are strictly end game content, but it seems this could be Carbine’s take on shaking up the typical MMO dungeon experience. Every requeue could potentially play out differently based on the decisions you make, keeping the content fresh.

I’m sure we’ll hear more as we move forward into 2014. For now, enjoy the video and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
