Chad "Pappy" Moore has taken to the official WildStar site to give players a bit of a retrospective look at 2016 and all that happened in the preceding months. In addition, he wraps it up with the promise that the team has much more in store when 2017 rolls around.
The WildStar forum has been updated with the latest game notes that brings the fantastic news that dye unlocks are now account wide. In addition, players can now change the color of housing items thanks to a new "action" available in the UI.
WildStar players will be able to start forming cross-faction groups when the next update goes live on November 9th. In addition, the second half of Redmoon Terror will debut and a ton of new social features to enhance the overall game play experience of WildStar players will be coming along too.
Carbine Studios has announced that the next major WildStar update will be launching on November 16th. Called Redmoon Mutiny, the update brings the second phase of the Redmoon Terror to players as well as cross-faction grouping.

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.
