    Ahead of pre-order availability on Wednesday (you are going to pre-order, right?) those folks at Carbine have gone and quietly launched a redesigned website which better highlights the many features of the game (and the various Flicks and DevSpeaks that discuss them!)

    What are you waiting for? Go see the new shiny now!

    Wow, very cool!!! Definitely digging this major update to the the WildStar site! I'm really into the scrolling navigation trend in web design right now. :D Also, look at all this incredible content and ALL the fantastic images! :eek:


    EDIT: I think under "Fields" for Medic, they got some phrasing backwards? "Wielding a virtual pharmacopoeia of benign and malignant auras, you'll be savoring your enemies' squeals of relief and allies' howls of agony through the undebunkable magic of medical science!"

    I hate the new look >_>

    They're going with a format that I have never liked on any website and I instantly missed the old look when I went to take a look at the new site...

    We cant be friends right now. I cant see till I get back to my room tonight in camp and use my mobile internet connection. STUPID COMPANY THAT I WORK FOR!!! People can go to a freakin TAB/Sportsbet betting website and gamble their pay away but I cant get to a game information website (Wildstar, Kotaku etc) because its "Games". I cant PLAY any freakin games on these sites I can only find out information and discussion (much like this one) but noooooooo if I had a gambling problem its no issue tho. Go bet your wages away

    /rant

    On topic. Cant wait to see the new site hehe

    I suspect you'll be able to pre-order just fine via NCSOFT directly - just that they have no Australian retail partners.

    Please say they are going to have the digital deluxe edition somewhere to get. Because I really want to buy it.

    I think the new site is hideous...what were they thinking? User friendly? Clean? No way...things are just scattered across pages, way too much information laid out on a page. Totally un organized. Maybe its just my browser...can only use IE 8.0 at work. I'll check when I get home, but this thing is not pretty.

    Game looks great, new site looks like a high schooler in a web design class developed it.

    I'm not fond of the everything on one page approach (and it displays miserably on my smartphone) but it does look awful pretty!

    I like it. It looks nice and is very easy to navigate, at least on my computer. I haven't tried my smartphone yet. :)

    It feels a bit too tablet-ey for my desktop, but I like it overall. Really gets you familiar with the game and it's options quickly and concisely. Probably looks and feels a ton better on an ipad or something.

    I like it. It's streamlined and visually splashy but, there seems to be no section for crafting which is odd since crafting is said to be meaningful in this game.

    My thoughts exactly. It is beyond me how anybody can look at this and think it's aesthetically pleasing.

    People have been saying it's some new trend in websites. Well, I've never seen it prior to the Adventures page reveal recently, and I hope it's a trend that dies off immediately.

    Well this doesn't have to say a lot depending your browsing history (as in if you browse the internet a lot)/

    Personally i've seen it a couple of times (it get's more) and it seems that games are going this way with their site's.

    Heroes of the Storm has exactly the same: http://www.heroesofthestorm.com/en-us
    Destiny has their own unique way of approuching this as you can scroll down to see the last update entries.
    Aswell as some others, just go search some upcomming games and i'm almost sure you'll see it a couple of times.

    But the trend is that the first page get's ten times the info then it had before.

    It was my browser. Silly IE 8. Even still, I am not sure I like the layout. Im not a fan of everything being scrollable on one page. I think its lazy design ;p
