The latest State of the Game letter has been published on the WildStar site. It's a somewhat short letter, but it has some interesting tidbits of information about what players can expect to find coming to the game in the future. Of particular note is the forthcoming addition of the Prime difficulty setting for raids.
The WildStar team is ready to unleash another double XP weekend starting April 14th and ending on April 17th. During the "Double XP X-Plosion" event, all experience boosts through Signature membership will stack with the bonus given through the weekend.
As pointed out by the official site and MOP, the Power of the Primal Matrix update is now live in WildStar and Nexus! The main focus of this update is on the end-game progression, adding a never-ending set of progression mechanics to keep your character growing beyond 50 - you even get a free level 50 to try it out.
The WildStar team is excited about Wednesday's launch of Primal Matrix, its brand new end-game progression system. Being twitterpated shows too with today's announcement that will see all players who log in at launch receiving a free Level 50 character.
WildStar players will be pleased to hear that the end-game progression system, Primal Matrix, will be making its debut on March 8th. To help players earn Essences (used to unlock the Matrix upgrade nodes), a pair of new instances, Evil from the Ether and Coldblood Citadel, will also be included in the update. Several dungeons and Expeditions will also become compatible with the Prime Difficulty, a new challenge to earn powerful rewards.
WildStar’s instances are getting a bit of a boost. In order to provide a form of endgame progression, Carbine Studios recently introduced the Primal Matrix as a way to develop characters beyond level 50. Beyond the raids, dungeons and questing zones, the Matrix will provide longer-term goals that shiny loot just can’t match.
Last week, Carbine introduced WildStar players to the upcoming Primal Matrix, a way for max-level characters to continue to progress through the collection of Primal Essence. During a live stream event held on Friday, Jonathan Brown and Chad Moore previewed the Primal Matrix. If you didn't have a chance to catch it live, the nearly hour-long event has been uploaded to YouTube.
The WildStar site has been updated with the news about the Primal Matrix System, the next significant update to the game coming in February 2017. The Primal Matrix is a way for end-game characters to progress beyond level 50 by collecting Primal Essence that can be spent to unlock new class abilities and more.
WildStar players will be able to take part in the Battle Chase event that is set to start on Thursday, January 6th and that will run through January 16th. During the event, players collect Battle Bits by completing Battlegrounds and can also score Battle Chase Crates with some nifty in-game rewards including the Exile or Dominion hoverboards.
From the "news about news" files, Carbine has announced via Twitter that the next significant WildStar update will be revealed on Tuesday, January 4, 2017. The announcement came alongside a tiny video that says, "The fate of Nexus rests in your hands..."
The WildStar team has posted an hour-long video from a recent live stream even in which Chad "Pappy" Moore and team took viewers on a tour of Winterfest. In addition, Moore reiterated how excited the team is for 2017 and what it has in store for the game.
