How to Play WildStar in 2024

So even though WildStar closed it’s doors back in 2018, discarded to the dead MMO pile, banished by NCSoft, the story doesn’t end their for this title.

Thanks to some determined fans and talented programmers you can still partially play WildStar today.

Slight disclaimer though, it’s still a work in progress and missing quite a lot of features, but if you have never experience WildStar before or just feeling nostalgic, follow the guide below to get playing today!

Getting Started 

So what do you need to get started… well you will need a PC, with internet and a copy of WildStar.

Technically you could go out and buy a copy if you haven’t got one already or you can get it from such sites as this one HERE

You will also need to have the latestVisual Studio 2022 with .Net6 and C# 9.0.

A lot of this is standard with Windows 10/11

Once you have it installed, you will then need to install the private server client….

Server Setup

There’s a few different servers to choose from and depending on which one you choose may require a slightly different setup.

NexusForever 

Typically a lot of people will install the NexusForever server. You can find the link here: https://www.emulator.ws/
