Maybe it slipped under your radar, but WildStar has been quietly and diligently at work preparing the next two content updates for the game as well as activating several events for the month of August.
According to this month’s Dev Connect, Patch 1.7.3 is “nearing completion” with its new communities feature, a “Residential Renovation” monthly event, and a couple of prime difficulty dungeons. Following that later this year is Patch 1.7.4, which will roll out the Genetic Archives Prime Level 1. This raid is currently on the test servers.
So what will this Residential Renovation event include? The team briefly discussed it in a recent article: “Players will help housing designer and renovator extraordinaire, Sara Conavius, by completing a variety of activities to earn currency which can be traded for rewards.”
Next up for events in WildStar is Sim-Chase from August 14th through the 21st, followed by a double XP weekend on August 25th through the 28th.
