As part of Carbine's promise to release meaningful content on a monthly basis, the team is proud to introduce the first major WildStar update. Called "The Strain", the patch will feature a new zone, new solo content, new gear, housing items, costumes and mounts and some existing areas will be overhauled.
The Strain content update includes:
- New Zone, Blighthaven: a massive new zone that includes Cankertube swamp and the gastrointestinal terrors of the Globellum!
- New solo content: a new group event like a tower defense game (Guardians of the Grove) and a dungeon-like area for group combat called The Nursery that includes a Boss fight against the Strain-corrupted Elyona the Mad.
- Players will also unlock new Strain-themed gear, housing items, costumes and mounts.
- Players will be able to revisit areas from Nexus that have been drastically altered; Northern Wilds becomes Northern Wastes and is now a crash site.
