This is the only thing I don't like about this MMO and it might be the reason I won't buy it. I just place a lot of value on how the game world looks and comparing WildStar to WoW (as a former wow player who might go back to it), WoW's world just looks so much better. WildStar does have better NPC/Player models but the world does not look as good, WoW has so much more detail, something that WildStars World lacks. When you play WoW on the best graphics setting with HDR and the graphics macro it can look pretty good. See for yourself. http://www.blogcdn.com/massively.joystiq.com/media/2013/03/wildstar.jpg http://cdn.sheeparcade.com/resources/mmo/images/screenshots/wildstar-online_2.jpg http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/314/7/1/winterspring_background_by_aeirana-d4fqyhx.jpg These screenshots do not have HDR or the graphics Macro on. http://media.mmo-champion.com/images/cataclysm/beta/durotar_05.jpg I would say the graphics for the game worlds are about the same but WoW has more details for their game world. WildStars game world looks plain in my opinion. The trees and snow is just so clear , their are no fine details in anything, everything is just one pure color.
