So a few weeks ago as most of you will know by now, a few of us were invited to the WildStar Fan event ArkShip in Brighton, UK. The event was held in the Hilton hotel on the beach and oddly enough it was a sunny weekend in Brighton (apparently it rains a lot there)!
The event was manned by staff from Carbine and NCSOFT. Leading the charge was the charismatic Troy “Aether” Hewitt, Community Director and Producer, his right hand man Global Community Manager Loic “Atreid” Claveau and European Community Manager Aidan “Faelan” Taylor compered the day and evening activities and introduced the rest of the team that was there:

It will publish the game on its Red Door online commerce platform in North America and Europe. The deal represents a major bet on the massively multiplayer online gaming business, which is competing fiercely for the attention of consumers alongside rivals such as social, mobile, and console games.
The title has spent six years in development, and its creator is Jake Song, who made the smash hit online game Lineage.
