Get ready for WildStar’s first post-launch monthly update named Strain. This new update will bring hours and hours of content distributed through two new zones Blighthaven and Northern Wastes. Players will face new creatures with new attacks, new quest mechanics like the ring challenge, new gear, and new housing items.
According to the teaser page, The Strain is a “virulent biological anomaly that has begun to spread across planet Nexus.” It’s infecting fauna and flora alike, so expect to battle lumpy, mutated versions of Nexus’ creatures.
On June 24 Blighthaven and the Northern Wastes will be added, followed quickly by an update to player housing on June 26. The update will largely be targeted at players who have already hit the level 50 cap, and will feature new boss encounters and gear drops, as well as an emote that’ll make a big slimy purple mouth burst out of your chest why not. You’ll spot a few of those things in the trailer, but be warned—a cartoon goat was harmed during the making of this video.
