NCSoft has announced a new MMO at GamesCom 2011 in Cologne, revealing the much-teased project as an MMO called Wildstar.

Developed by Carbine Studios and using a cartoony aesthetic, Wildstar has just four character classes for players to choose from, each based around a playing archetype.

The four classes, which are pretty self-explanatory, are Soldier, Scientist, Explorer and Settler.

Set in the far future on a mysterious planet, Wildstar looks set to target a more casual end of the market than competitors such as World of Warcraft are appealing to.

'WildStar and Guild Wars 2 showcase the innovation coming from NCsoft’s development studios, paving the way for the next generation of videogames and setting a high bar for the entertainment industry to follow,' said NCSoft's Matt Turetzky.

'We are focused on delighting players by delivering fun, immersive experiences that rival traditional forms of entertainment through personal expression, best-in-class gameplay mechanics, and social engagement.'
