Carbine Studios has announced that WildStar‘s biggest update to date will go live next week, bringing with it new quests, areas, and almost 100 pages of bug fixes.
The update adds a new level 50 area to the game called The Defile, which includes new quests, lore, and areas to explore. A brief rundown of The Defile’s new areas can be found below:
- The Sonic Plaza ? One of the first area?s you visit in the Defile, and where your faction has made camp to study the power of Exinite. If you?re a solo player who loves Quests, Path Missions and Lore then this is an area for you.
- The Siege of the Lightspire ? A gigantic monster called Isigrol the Dreadwatcher is on the warpath and set to bring the Lightspire tumbling down. You?ll need to team up with a big group of adventurers to take him on in a 20 player Public Event called Siege of the Lightspire.
- The Black Focus ? If you?re more interested in saving the planet with a small group of chums, and are up for some 5+ player world content, the Black Focus is the place to go. Players be taking on Koral the Defiler and his plans to corrupt a Primal Focus to infect all of Nexus with the Strain.
- The Strain Maw ? Find the Strain Maw and jump on into its mouth. Doing so will reward you with new areas to explore and a ton of cool Path content, Datacubes, and more inside the belly of the beast.
- The Tainted Gardens ? Ruled by Syra, Queen of the Direweb, The Tainted Gardens is an arachnophobes nightmare full of quests to keep you busy. But you won?t just be stomping spiders this time, you?ll be working for them to help rescue some allies.
Following this, WildStar‘s next World Story will begin with Journey Into Omnicore-1. “After the skull-shattering revelations in the Lightspire, you?ll be thrust into: The Nexus Saga ? an epic, multi-part story designed specifically for solo players,” Carbine explains. “There you and your fellow peril junkies, will be joined by the most famous heroes of both the Dominion and Exiles and rushed headlong through the most epic locations on Nexus in a last-ditch attempt to save the universe!”
Mystery of Genesis Prime will be available from November 11.
