Update: Carbine's got more in store for us than just a poster! Today the official website for WildStar's first monthly "Ultra Drop" titled "The Strain" went live. The teaser site features a full schedule detailing what's planned to be revealed, including two new locations, new housing plugs, and all sorts of new customization options (including a new mount). On top of that, a new flick video and Devpseak will arrive in time to detail all the fun goodies:

- COMING 6/24
- NORTHERN WASTES
- COMING 6/26
- COMING 6/30
- ON PATCH DAY
- PATCH NOTES
Here's the link to WildStar's official teaser site for The Strain. It's worth checking out just to get an idea of the gross, disease/infection aesthetic of the patch: link.
Oh Carbine, what are you up to now? Today the WildStar developers took to social media to tease... something. Something ominous, by the looks of it. Something that currently isn't in the game, but perhaps will be before too long? The teaser comes in the form of a poster sporting the title, "SOMETHING IS WAITING", then further below is the subtitle, "SOMETHING... BEYOND SCIENCE". Oh, and there's a giant bloodshot eyeball stuck in some crazy purple skin that looks like it's being taken over by Venom from the Spider-Man comics.
The only other information provided on the poster is the hashtag #WSFLICK which is associated with each of the videos that Carbine Studios releases for WildStar. The implication is of course that a trailer must be in the works to reveal whatever our science-y poster is teasing. Maybe WildStar's just goofing around and this is just a fun video they're putting together. I'd love to see them do a series of background or story-focused videos. They're such pros at this type of content.
Or... could this be related to WildStar's first content patch?
Time will tell. The poster certainly oozes that sci-fi horror style that Carbine Studio has packed WildStar full of. Expect to hear more on, well, whatever is "Waiting" in the weeks to come. WildStar is currently available on PC.
