Wildstar's next major content update — Sabotage — will introduce a plethora of player-versus-player options to the game, including a 15-on-15 battleground arena, developer Carbine Studios announced today.

Slated for a late July release, the multiplayer mode Sabotage includes new airstrike and explosive options as well as mounts in its massive Daggerstone Pass battleground arena, which players can access once they hit level 30. Within Daggerstone Pass, the objective is to capture and hold certain points within it, which will in turn assist teams in damaging the enemy team's base. Bombs will randomly spawn near bases and can be used by players for various functions — just know they will begin ticking down as soon as they are picked up.

According to Carbine, Sabotage's content highlights the studio's commitment to continuously evolve existing gameplay mechanics in Wildstar into something meatier and more challenging.

I'm still enjoying it, population is starting to level out though after the initial launch rush.

They really, REALLY need better QA though. I mean, they patch things pretty regularly and they push out new stuff pretty regularly, which is good, but they break as many things as they fix with each patch. Nothing showstopping and nothing that prevents you being able to play, but ALWAYS something breaks. Like after one patch, the 'Repair all' function at vendors stopped working and you had to repair each piece of gear individually. And after the most recent patch, all the quest names and quest text in Blighthaven don't show up anymore, and none of the text shows up for your path quests so you just have to make a best guess about what you're meant to do.

I really like the attitude of the devs, and the work they're doing and really like the game in general, but this sort of thing is starting to get annoying and its chipping away at the goodwill they've built up, even amongst the most steadfast of their supporters. They really need to be careful =\

yeah this could be the downfall of the game. its strange in a way, usually MMOs these days fail due to lack of content, from the little I played during the beta, content doesn't seem to be a problem for Wildstar, on the flip side if the game is this buggy then that can be just as detrimental. there really is no excuses at this point to continue to release buggy patches.
