Yeah, developers Carbine know that spending resources on a video that is just about how the characters in Wildstar move seems a little odd. It should be trivial, but actually, given that this is an MMO, there’s quite a bit of extra stuff going on in here, specifically the addition of a platform-game style double jump, and a TPS/FPS type metered sprint function. There’s also a “dash” function for dodging. Doesn’t that make it a dodge function and not a dash? I mean I guess dodging is in a context. You can dash whenever, and it only becomes a dodge when you are dodging something. Yeah.
Movement: with more philosophical legs that you might expect.
It’s moderately amusing! I hope the game manages to be moderately amusing. Few MMOs are funny in any way. At least not on purpose. Anyway, there’s a beta going on.
