The fourth content update for WildStar fromis now out, and the developer boasts it address feedback from players "in the first half of 2015," such as improvements to 'quest flow'.
The Protogames Academy has been introduced to help new WildStar players acclimate to running dungeons in this level-10 run, but there's also the Ultimate Protogames for level-50 veterans.
The Carbine team has already reworked Shiphands with veteran level dailies for level-50s. "Just like Veteran Adventures and Dungeons, these new, more challenging versions of the existing Shiphand missions have tougher encounters and commensurately better rewards."
A new features trailer for WildStar's The Protogames Initiative update has been released. Check outon the fourth content update for a full account of all these changes.
The Protogames Initiative highlights:
▪ New Shiphand Experiences
“They Came From Fragment Zero!” is the newest Shiphand, designed for level six players (don’t worry level 50s, there’s a Veteran mode included). Players can blast off to an asteroid near the moon of Halon to uncover a spooky Eldan facility and investigate the unnerving experiments going on there. Additionally, WildStar’s existing Shiphands now also feature Veteran modes for level-50 fans looking for challenging encounters and matching completion rewards.
▪ Protogames Academy
To help the newest players out, WildStar brings the best tutorial on this side of Nexus in the form of Protogames Academy. This level-10 dungeon will teach less-experienced dungeon-goers the tricks of the trade by introducing them to WildStar’s more complex group content mechanics, while also providing a fun experience and access to more support-role gear much earlier in the leveling process.
▪ The Ultimate Protogames
A challenging new level-50 veteran dungeon, The Ultimate Protogames gives player-contestants the opportunity to battle through Protostar’s most diabolical and deviously devised diversions. In this maniacal game show, players will fight through randomly-ordered rooms making every run of the dungeon unique. The prize for emerging victorious? Eternal glory (and sweet loot).
▪ New Customization Options
A new customization system called the “Character Chop Shop” enables players to make all kinds of changes to their characters’ hair, face, and body, and a new housing option give players the tools to change the terrain style of their property. From the dusty dunes of Malgrave to the ice floes of Whitevale, players have more control over the look of their plot than ever before. And the new Underground Bunker House will let you get the most out of your available space by putting your living quarters deep beneath the surface.
