Carbine would like to invite you to check out all the latest content in the Strain Ultradrop on the Public Test Realm
We’re continuing to get more and more information regarding WildStar‘s upcoming update titled The Strain. With this update comes new zones, new adventures, and plenty of new customization for all aspects of the game.

Turn your house into a horrifyingly elegant palace by adding items like bathtubs with claws, giant infected optical nerves, postulant purple barbs and more assorted grossness. In addition, a couple new housing plugs will be available including a Strainmaw mat for your unwelcomed guests and a Phage Form Lab. All of these additions give players a crazy amount of options to truly customize their house and the chance to earn more rest XP when logging out.

Like the countless alien adventurers already descending into the mystery of planet Nexus, WildStar is itself a stranger in a strange land. As the newest massively multiplayer roleplaying game in an already crowded genre, it has an uphill battle in winning a piece of that market – and further still, keeping it engaging enough to warrant the monthly subscription fee. To compensate, developer Carbine Studios has cast the widest possible net by striving to cater to both casual players and the hardcore MMORPG player, a sizeable feat rather deftly accomplished by sticking to the formula that’s found success, while fleshing out new ideas therein.



The team at Carbine would like to invite you to check out all the latest content in the Strain Ultradrop on the Public Test Realm - Nexus! In addition to being able to check out the new content in-game, we'll be hosting an event on Friday, June 27, 2014, which will give you the opportunity to hang out with some of the game developers who created the Strain Ultradrop content! So, be sure to install the Public Test Realm client now - it may take a little while to install.

    As long as you have an Active WildStar subscription (NA or EU) you will be able to access the PTR.

    Character wipes may be needed on the PTR from time to time and your progress on this Realm may be lost, this is a fair warning!

    We are planning on leaving the PTR up and available 24/7, similar to any other Realm, for the remainder of the time that Drop 1 (Strain) needs to be tested.
