WildStar is a Free to Play sci-fi Fantasy MMORPG with a stylized cartoon-ish look from NCSoft’s Southern California-based Carbine Studios. Play is set on the newly discovered planet of Nexus, once home to the technologically advanced race called the Eldan. Long ago, they mysteriously vanished. Now that the planet has been rediscovered, Explorers, Soldiers, Scientists, and Settlers are coming here from across the galaxy in search of adventure, fortune, and possibly the dark secrets of the Eldan. Why did the disappear and who, or what, made them go?

The second volume of the WildStar soundtrack has been released by Sumthing Else Music, a company dedicated to releasing game tunes. Composed by Jeff Kurtenacker, the new album features several never before heard compositions and also features the talents of Los Angeles Opera singer Nicole Fernandes performing "From the Ashes".
The WildStar forum has been updated with a new developer post to give players a heads up about some nifty quality of life improvements coming to the game in the near future. The list of QoL improvements came as a direct result of community feedback and include a number of oft-requested features. See what's in store.
The latest WildStar build has been deployed to the Pubic Test Realm that reveals new rewards from Madame Fay, items for the Sim-Chase event and a ton of new models coming to the game with Build 14018. Of particular note, however, is the addition of AMP (passive upgrades and "procs" spent to customize characters in areas like Assault, Utility, Support) and Ability Points.
When the Redmoon Rising update to WildStar goes live on August 17th, Madame Fay will be getting an update...or a retrograde, depending on how you look at it. From that day forward, she will be selling some pretty spiffy "retro-inspired fortunes" so Carbine is urging players to head over and snap up any of her remaining stock before the 17th.
The WildStar site has been updated with a preview of the Redmoon Rising dungeon that will be heading into the game on August 17th. The preview gives a nice stack of lore that includes what can be called nothing less than space pirates headed up by the risen captain, Ish'amel. Other characters of note include Swabbie Ski'li, Robomination, the Redmoon Engineers, and Mordechai Redmoon.
WildStar players are being invited to head to the public test realm to check out the Redmoon Terror raid. The raid will be released in two wings, Redmoon Rising and Redmoon Mutiny, with a third, harder, version to come in a subsequent update.
WildStar servers will be brought down today to bring the Heroes Evolved Update into the game. Heroes Evolved brings a number of nifty improvements and features into the game including instant level 50 characters, multi-queuing, cross faction instances, Chua Warriors, Aurin Engineers, race / gender swapping, Path Master and account-wide currencies.
The WildStar site has been updated with a big new (and exciting) post by Chad Moore that lays out the first details about the Heroes Evolved update that has now landed on the PTR. Heroes Evolved is going to bring some big, big and very welcome changes to WildStar.
Carbine has announced that Character Boosts will be coming to WildStar beginning with the next update to the PTR. When Heroes Evolved hits PTR, players will be able to check out the zero to 50 level boost that will come complete with full gear and consumables, a race-specific mount and Platinum to get things rolling.
