WildStar is entering that period of development where it's difficult for me to understand why I'm not playing the game yet -- beta or otherwise. Every additional detail pushes the rolling snowball of excitement farther down the hill, but Carbine Studios won't tell us when we can play! Case in point the game's latest DevSpeak trailer covering customization. Give me this already, Carbine. Give it to me.
Yes, customization in WildStar is as broad spanning as gamers would typically expect from an MMO these days with armor dying and expansive character creation. Surprising, perhaps, is WildStar's amount of skill and stat customization. They claim that most weapons can have their stats completely customized. That's on top of customizable skill sheets that are selectable on the fly. Stats too!
Saving the best for last, the WildStar customization trailer also revealed this: customizable mounts. Yes, players can add a variety of accessories to their mounts, including what seems like huge changes to their hoverboard.
WildStar is planned for launch in Q1/Q2 of 2014, which is to say it currently doesn't have a release date. They'd still like to get it out sometime in the next six months, I think? Maybe they're having a hard time wrapping up some features or pumping out zone content, so they're unwilling to dedicate to a release date. MMOs this big take time.
