Learn All About Aiming in This New WildStar DevSpeak Video
Want your MMORPGs to have a heavier focus on player skill? You're in luck.
07.12.13 - 12:15 AM

WildStar developer Carbine Studios occasionally releases new videos focusing on different aspects of its upcoming MMORPG in its DevSpeak series.

Today's video is all about aiming. In it, they discuss the various aiming/targeting systems they considered, before settling on what you see below, which is a combination of semi-traditional MMO tab-targeting with a more freeform system. As you'll see, it's a system that definitely requires some skill, and will reward those players who master it.

Oh, and... stick around until at least the 3:00 mark.

WildStar is currently in beta testing, and you can sign up for access on the official website.
