Wildstar’s not even a month old - Heck, Nick’s not even finished reviewing it yet - and Carbine are releasing it’s first big update for their MMO: the Strain Ultradrop.
We garnered a few details about the update from the original trailer but we’ve learned a lot more from the new Devspeak video.
It’s a whole new territory for you to explore. For lore fans you’ll be searching out the Genesis Chamber “where you’ll find the secrets of Nexus.” There’s a mutant hoverboard for those who just like to take in the sights, a bomber minigame that sticks you in the cockpit of a robot plane, and a cannon that fires you into a goo pit.
There’s new challenges for the folk who want high level content - new enemies and loot chests are up for the fighting and grabbing. You’ll have to win a group survival mission, rip out the heart of a big orange bird, and beat some new world bosses.
And, there’s a stack of new items to decorate your house with - spines, eyes on stalks, sacs of bacterial goop, and a strain laboratory.
Here’s that trailer for those who like to see mutant sheep:
The updates are due out over the next couple of days so be on the look out.
