WildStar early access period derailed by DDoS attacks [Update]

WildStar was set to launch for early buyers an hour ago, giving those folks a chance to jump into the game's world days before everyone else. Unfortunately for those players (including our own Giant Robots In Disguise guild), WildStar is experiencing server issues and the developers are pointing the finger at a DDoS attack.

Update: Carbine acknowledges that more players are finding their way into the game. The developer encourages players to keep track of any lingering issues on the WildStar forums.

Original story: WildStar was set to launch for early buyers an hour ago, giving those folks a chance to jump into the game's world days before everyone else. Unfortunately for those players (including our own Giant Robots In Disguise guild), WildStar is experiencing server issues and the developers are pointing the finger at a DDoS attack.

WildStar executive producer Jeremy Gaffney posted on Reddit, "I've heard from a few folks it's a confirmed DDOS attack (real time updates, may change, fog of war, etc.). Partially handled. Servers taking in some players now, player counts rising. Ninjitsu continues."

The best suggestion for now is to keep hammering away. The early bird period lasts all the way up to WildStar's official release on June 3.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
