    So on 9-25-13 the Wildstar Wednesday was about Shiphand Missions and there was a nice pretty picture. Let's take apart the picture and exam every little detail!

    [​IMG]

    This is clearly from the Exile side. In the foreground we see a Mordesh in profile. There's even a little science bot just above his head in the background. Then right to the left of the Mordesh is an alien we haven't really seen before. The one with the pink tentacle hair working at a computer.

    He does have that little octopus look doesn't he? Or she or ...uhm. It? Anyway! Even behind the tentacle-hair-pinkie is probably another mordesh. Look at the cute little ears!

    Then on the other side of the mordesh is the weird kangaroo rat thing.

    He looks important. And wearing what looks like work coveralls. Maybe an engineer on the ship?

    We also have the "Goon Squad" in the background.

    ShiphandRace03.png

    Probably just humans wearing masks or maybe some mordesh getting ready for Halloween. What they are wearing looks pretty standard between them so maybe they are crew?

    Look! Look! Laira! Mondo didn't zap her after all! She's hiding on the ship.

    Anyway, I'm not saying that these images prove there are new playable races for us. Yet it does show that the Exiles are likely not just made up of the four playable races we have. It's clear there are alliances or even allies that are supporting them. It also gives the idea that the Wildstar universe has lots of other races and planets we haven't even seen yet. The shiphand missions are a good hint to that too!

    Yeah I waaay back in the beginning they mentioned that there will be a whole bunch of unplayable races to flesh out the world and make it feel bigger, some will be enemies, some will be npcs etc etc

    Sadly, those are most likely simply NPCs. It'd be nice if we could actually play every single race available, though. But that's probably too much to ask.

    I remember looking at some art from Cory Loftis (guy who did the concept art for Wildstar) and saw these:

    I remember hoping they'd have something to do with Wildstar, and looks like they do! I really love their design :D

    He also had this:

    Old Aurin? I wonder if we'll have elderly and child NPC's in the game world as well. Would be really cool :D

    I'm fine with the races as they are now, but I hope they will unlock some additional zones/classes/races in expansions!

    Thanks for the breakdown. The "little octopus" race was featured in the DevSpeak Crowd Control video at about the 16 second mark.
