WildStar Developer Panel and Fan Event Coming to San Diego during Comic Con

WHAT:                 Carbine Studios is excited to announce two public events featuring WildStar, the most anticipated MMO of the year, during Comic Con next week in San Diego. The events include a panel discussion with the game’s lead designers and directors at the San Diego Convention Center, and a fan event at the Hotel Palomar downtown. Additional information on both events is below.

WildStar Panel Discussion

Storytelling and character development in MMOs can be extremely challenging, but both are vital when trying to launch a new IP. Lead Narrative Designer Chad Moore, Content Director Mike Donatelli, Creative Director Matt Mocarski, and Design Producer Stephen Frost will explain how characters and stories are developed in WildStar. Join them as they discuss the creative process behind key characters, the development of story arcs, and how those efforts culminate in making the player the star of the show.

WildStar Fan Event

                                Attendees will have a chance to play the game, get a firsthand look at two new races and be treated to a meet and greet with the devs to ask questions and learn more about the latest WildStar news.
