    Are you ready for an Adventure, cupcake? This week, Carbine are taking the wrappings off of a new kind of instanced content, with an old-schoool twist. Remember those "Choose Your Own Adventure" books? Well, WildStar includes all the fun of those days (but with none of the holding your finger on the page you just came from!)

    What are you waiting for, time to go and meet The Caretaker...

    This has the opportunity to add a LOT of replayability and it looks like an easy way to add contend as well. Really like it!

    The question that came to mind after watching the movie was "Why would I want to help a psychotic being of immense power learn how to kill me better"? Do the risks of helping the caretaker outweigh the benefits? Why has no one just turned it off permanently determining that the caretaker is too dangerous?

    There are a couple of things you are doing wrong :D

    1: You are posting info that you are in Beta on a FAN-forum :p (smart) Go check out the official Beta forum for help.

    2. The Beta isn't on 100% of the time, sometimes they need to make adjustments etc. so relax enjoy the wait and try to log in every hour or so? I'm sure it'll be back online....sometime.

    3. Thinking the problem of the servers lies with you ;) It's not! :up: isn't that good news?

    Because the Caretaker also has control over most/all Eldan devices.....so he is YOUR way into the Eldan tech!
    Why destroy the way in? Instead try to stabilise it and get the sensitive information you are so keen on!

    The faction that has the caretaker on their side first.....will most likely be the winner!

    The side with the better psychiatrists win?

    Scene:Caretaker lying on a bed with a Freudian looking psychiatrist with an outrageous European accent writes notes.
    Psychiatrist: "So, Caretaker tell me about your mother"
    Caretaker: "Of course and thank you for asking this question. My mother ABANDONED ME AND LEFT ME ON THIS PLANET!"
    Psychiatrist"I see, I see, very interesting..."

    Cool looking, but what is it for?
    Is this a look at end game content, level capped instances, or something more like the off planet missions?

    As to how it works... Would the program reset when you die or is it more matrix like, where of you die in the 'real world' too?

    Any chance of it being a daily thing?
    And is it group only content?

    Adventures are available from Level 15 and are 5-man instances. Unlike Shiphands (scalable 1-5 man instances) these do not scale.

    Carbine will no doubt put out some more details soon - but there's your outline!

    Cool, so maybe more like a randomly generated dungeon? I mention random because as someone else mentioned, it would be a very short time tool people figures out the right paths to pick....

    Community Article coming soon will go into a lot more depth about Adventures, I also made sure to answer some of the main questions people had about them (Difference between Adventure & Dungeon, how do Path's fit in etc).

    Keep your eyes peeeeeeeeeeled!

    I do not trust this caretaker. I get the feeling on off days he sits down at the virtual pub with HAL-9000, GLaDOS, Skynet and the WOPR.

    Most interesting thing is the praise of Caretakers personality on several social media pages I have seen.
    It is trully far less awsome, cool, delightfully creepy or whatevs in RL. From anyones point of view.
    He sure makes a strong character judging on his depiction in flick but most comments were rather ... would not say offending ... maybe strangely surprising.

    Other than I think the little movie was exceptionally well made.

    Wildstar's comment was also really nice and I am looking forward seeing exactly that ;).
