    Blighthaven: lovely place to visit.

    WildStar players will have a lot more content to explore as of today, because the Strain Ultra Drop has just dropped.

    The Strain Ultra Drop focuses on a horrible infection that’s corrupted Nexus, and has players investigating its origins and its secrets – which might just lead you to learning more about the conflict between the Drusera and the Entity. I don’t really know what most of that means, but there you are.

    Thankfully, I can understand the specifics of some of the additions. There are a pair of new level 50 zones, which are the cheerily named Blighthaven and The Northern Wastes. There’s more group content in the form of public mini-dungeon The Nursery and an open-world tower-defence style battle in The Tree of Life. There’s Strain-related customisation in terms of a dozen housing items (“oozing with pustules, boils, tentacles, and eyeballs”), a load of customisation items with new colours, and some horrific mounts.

    Also, anyone who activates a retail key for WildStar before 7 July will get a special “Squirg” costume item. Which basically means we’re now back to stuff I don’t understand, again.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he's willing to admit. He's written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion - in all its various incarnations - for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He's also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man's only professional games journalist.
