    HOVERBOARDS ... OHHHHHHH YEHHHHHHH !!! AWSOME !!!

    :up: to all the clever boys and girls who helped work it out.

    Heres a link to the vid

    Apart from how cool that brief look was do we know anything else about them?

    1.Are they going to be our equivilent of an in game mount , collectable , customisable , usable in open world travel?
    2.Or are they just going to be some form of static transport or maybe usable in a quest?

    Im hoping number 1.

    If it is the first choice then it is brilliant on Carbines part , technically we get to fly but they also keep us close to the ground to make sure we are still interacting with the zones. I love it.

    Maybe we will get to see one in the stream this weekend.:D

    It looks amazing. I agree with you though, this will be much cooler if it's a mount we can use all the time. Looks a little fast though ...

    My biggest question is about the inertia and the physics engine. Will WildStar be able to handle inertia with lets say flying mounts? It would be epic if flying mounts, planes, spaceships, shuttles would be affected by inertia. That would make things like aerial combat so much fun. Think about soaring between two mountains, having to guess can you make it with this speed and this angle of entry.

    This kind of a physics bring so much on the table with mounts, eviroment hazards etc. You could have track down a mountain where you can go bobsledding or skeleton. The friction of the ice and your inertia would make all the difference between a being death, and completing the ride. :p

    These people certainly know what they are doing. Animation looks solid, might be to fast but if its supposed to be like a flying mount and this is the top speed then i guess thats ok.

    But who cares! Can't wait for this game and getting my beautiful hands on that hoverboard.

    And for christ sake! Can't Saturday come a little bit faster!? Tick Tack ! Yes i'm looking at you time. God your so slow!

    I just sincerely hope its a mount and not a "buff" item that lasts 20 seconds. Even running out of gas is ok as long as its a permanent thing I can know is with me always

    Goodness that is looking awesome :D - I did love the brief clip of him ramping off a rock and doing a trick in the air.
    And yes, I too hope that this is something permanent that can be earned with some effort. But still, hoverboards.

    How about turbo boosts that last 10-15s with 1 min regen time as a bonus? So freaking cool. Hoverboard races ftw. I hope there's achievements tied to tricks and stuff too. Makes me want to be an explorer more now lol

    I've been stalking this game on all kinds of shady websites and this totally came out of the blue. VERY EXCITED to see skill based mounts.
