WildStar's Chad Moore has penned the latest State of the Game letter on the official site, the first since the announcement regarding the game's move to Steam. Moore first announces that he is now the Game Director on WildStar and is the man in charge of leading the game into the future.
The future, according to Moore, includes a lot of new content that includes new areas of Nexus (and beyond) that have yet to be seen by players. All updates will include new quests, rewards and encounters that are focused on particular game mechanics. Players can look forward to story-based content with fully voiced NPCs and brand new cinematics.
Players can also look forward to adventuring through the Halon Ring, an asteroid belt orbiting Nexus and home to a number of outlaws.
Anything can happen in the Halon Ring, and it probably will. And speaking of marauders, we just announced that the next major raid in WildStar will be the Redmoon Terror. This is an incredible new raid, and although it won’t be going live with Destination Arcterra, we want to get some early testing of it done during the Arcterra PTR so we can get lots of feedback from our dedicated raiding community before its release. We’re also working on a brand new Expedition (super cool and creepy!) as well as the Item Upgrades system, which will enable players to make their gear even more powerful. Lastly we’re taking a close look at PvP, and are working on a number of initiatives to improve the overall experience for our players, along with incenting more participation in both instanced and open-world PvP. This is just a sneak peek at WildStar’s roadmap and what’s coming up in the future, so keep an eye out for lots more info in the coming weeks and months.
