NCSoft has announced that Destination Arcterra will be the next content update for WildStar.

“The recently discovered frozen wasteland of Arcterra is full of mysterious ruins, dangerous creatures, and ancient technology,” the developer wrote. “This brand new max-level zone offers dynamic content and events for solo players or groups of roving adventurers, presenting new challenges at every turn.”

The new zones being added with the update will introduce “Snowballing” bosses that will see more powerful bosses spawn as others are defeated, a new blizzard event in which players will compete to collect keys from epic bosses to open a secret dungeon for their faction, and a new reward track with costumes and an exclusive mount.

The update will also add a new instance called the Vault of the Archon, which “features unique gameplay mechanics, secret locations, and memorable boss encounters.”

Players will be able to test the update before its release when it hits the PTR (Public Test Realm) “soon.”

NCSoft also announced that WildStar will finally be coming to Steam in the first half of this year.
