WildStar trailer explains 40v40 PvP Warplots

Carbine Studios has released a new trailer to help further explain the idea of WildStar's 40v40 PvP Warplots. But all you pretty much need to know is that Warplots are like "your favorite food... wrapped in a six-pack of beer... wrapped inside another six-pack of beer." What more do you need?

Shacknews recently had an opportunity to try out some of WildStar's massive 40v40 Warplot matches, but unless you see the chaos for yourself, it can be hard to grasp the full scope of this PvP mode. Carbine Studios is looking to help spread more information about Warplots with a brand new trailer that helpfully explains the game mode as, "Your favorite food... wrapped in a six-pack of beer... wrapped inside another six-pack of beer." Well-said, indeed.

The trailer details how battle on this scale works, but also discusses ways in which team warplots can be customized and managed. Teams can position various defenses, such as turrets, lasers, and even dungeon bosses to keep opposing teams away. Warplots open up once players max out at level 50, with the object to either destroy the opposing team's generator or outlast the opposition until their resources run out.

WildStar launches on PC on June 3.

Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      They could separate out Warplots as a standalone game and it would still be a hit

      Looks like a lot of fun! Hope it lives up to my unlrealistic expectations at release.

        And...it failed. Didn't realize it was a mmorpg, or had a monthly fee which is an instant no-purchase.
