Carbine promises something for everyone in this latest WildStar ‘Strain’ update video

Posted on June 30, 2014 AT 06:31am

Carbine has released a new DevSpeak video for WildStar‘s first major content update, “Strain,” that promises something for all types of players.

“Whether you are a lore aficionado, customization guru, or max-leveled, murder machine who is ready to conquer new missions, our latest content update is sure to Blow. Your. Mind,” the developer wrote.

The Strain Ultradrop will add a brand new level 50 zone called Blighthaven, which includes Cankertube swamp and the gastrointestinal terrors of the Globellum. There’s also some new solo content for players to sink their teeth into in the shape of Guardians of the Grove, a take on tower defense, and a new open dungeon area called The Nursery that includes a boss fight against the Strain-corrupted Elyona the Mad. Players will also be able to revisit a lower level area of Nexus that has been altered by the strain: the Northern Wilds, which is now known as the Northern Wastes.

In terms of rewards, players will be able to earn Strain-themed gear, housing items, costumes, a hoverboard, and new mount.

The Strain update will be available to download later this week.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
