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.
