WildStar’s first major update ‘The Strain’ adds a new zone, gear, mounts, and more

Posted on June 18, 2014 AT 06:30am

Carbine has announced that WildStar‘s first major content update, The Strain’ will be available to download this July.

The update 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 boos fight against the Strain-corrupted Elyona the Mad.

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

Finally, players will be able to revisit lower level areas of Nexus that have been altered by the strain, such as the Northern Wilds, which is now known as the Northern Wastes.

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.
