WildStar's fir monthly patch is set to hit this week. They call them an "Ultradrop" and July's is named "The Strain" and to be honest we've talked about it quite robustly up until now. Still, it doesn't hurt to go back over everything in summary, presented with that classic Carbine Studios flair. Today saw the launch of The Strain's DevSpeak trailer, covering how this Ultradrop will introduce a ton of story, adventure and delicious loot.
One thing that has been noticeable missing from The Strain's details so far is any sort of PvP content, right? In today's DevSpeak it was confirmed that no major PvP content will be included in The Strain's Ultradrop. Keep that chin up, Stabby McStabberson, because Carbine's got something store for the August Ultradrop instead. Spoilers, it's a brand new Battleground. There's a pretty good shot of it towards the end of the DevSpeak. It may or may not be called Sabotage.
Just to provide a text source for what sort of content will be added in The Strain, let's make a bulleted point list:
- Genesis Chamber
- Secrets of Nexus
- Flying Robots
- Gelatinous Blob
- Skinny Dipping
- Bosses and Loot
- Group Holdout
- Firey Bird
- World Bosses
- Strain Costume
- Eyestalks, sacks, and THE STRAIN MAW
Yeah, and again, PvP stuff in August. Don't blame me for the odd list of stuff! It's all coming verbatim from the DevSpeak!
The Strain is planned to release later this week, thought we won't know which exact day -- or even if it'll actually be released -- until all's said and done. Otherwise, make sure everyone's buying their CREDD since month one's subscription is coming up! Get that attunement done, too! Ahh, glad we have that all sorted out now. WildStar is now available on PC.
