Wildstar, it turns out, still hasn't revealed all its special bits to us, with two more races making an appearance at San Diego Comic Con, for some reason. They are the Chua (annoying-looking "crazy" cute rodent things) and the Mordesh (morbid space zombies). So that's the furry and undead demographics catered for, but all I really wanted was a gold-plated robot. Turns out they already had one.
There's a video.
Here's the full page of races. Granok for me, I think.
Wildstar is set to make an appearance later this year, but exact date - like some kind of space spirit - still eludes us.
