The Strain! First Wildstar Ultra Drop

strainAs we were discussing in guild chat last night, here’s the reason for a subscription based game.  Incoming! The Strain! The first major content patch for Wildstar.  The patch will include 2 new zones full of single player, 5 man and 20 man content and some really cool challenges.

From the MMORPG article

Jeremy reiterated the studio’s stance that they’ll be releasing a brand new content drop every 4-6 weeks, to make sure that players are getting their subscription dollars.  He wasn’t so bold to promise new content every 28 days, but he did say that Drop 1 was feature complete before launch, and that Drop 2 was damned close as well, with Drop 3 in final stages.  About 33% of the team is currently working on new content for the Drops, and as the launch stuff settles down that’ll become about 50%.

There’s more good articles at Massively and ZAM.  No date has been set for the patch, but look for more info over the next 2 weeks and expect the patch near (or on) July 2.
