Last week, developer Carbine Studios introduced us to the infectious-looking Strain Ultradrop, the first major content update since the game's release. Only a month after the game's launch and Carbine is already looking to release a deadly plague unto its citizens of WildStar. Ouch.
Since the announcement of the Strain update, Carbine has been unveiling a little more on what to expect through their mini-website. In addition to a new area and Adventure, they've today revealed the housing and customisation options that plague-battling players can expect to earn.
For those on the housing front, Carbine will be adding several new items to decorate your home in the stylishly disgusting sickly purple and vomit-inducing yellow. These include the many-eyed creature of nightmares that will have you scaring your guests to a deadly poison barbed "thing" that will leave visitors bleeding all over your lovely house. Of course that's just the beginning, with Carbine promising a whole assortment of "pustules, globules, nodules, molds, glands, cysts, boils, spores, tumors, humors, swellings, carbuncles, rot, snot, bloodshot, and fraught…with peril!"
If your current mount is feeling a bit...underwhelming of late, well it seems Carbine also have a solution to that with new Strain-themed customisation options available for your mounts. Alongside these new items the update will also add a brand-new hoverboard themed to the sickly purple of the Strain patch. I'm sure Marty McFly won't be wanting this one. Players will also find a brand-new set of customisation options for their costume, including new sickly dyes and Strain-themed pieces of loot.
Full details on the new zones, adventures, new emotes and indescribable customisation options can be found at the update's mini-website here
