wildstar lore
Wildstar has had a dappled existence thus far. Despite the mmorpg gathering momentum all the way through its development phases and capturing the hearts of many a con-goer, the launch itself proved to be a little deflating. One of the biggest things that gamers complained about, following the launch of the sci-fi mmo, was the severe lack of tangible, graspable content for gamers to sink their teeth into.
