WildStar Sabotage Update Unveiled, Video Released
23/07/14 12:16 | Category: Videos | Platform: PC |
Sabotage, the second content drop for WildStar since its launch June this year, will feature mounts, airstrikes and explosives. Sabotage is a new game mode that players can access starting at level 30 and takes place in a massive new 15 vs. 15 Battleground, Daggerstone Pass. The goal of the arena is to capture and maintain hold points, which will do damage to the enemy's base. The Sabotage comes into play through bombs that are randomly spawned near a base. Once picked up by a player, the bombs begin ticking down to detonation and can be used for various strategies.
For instance bombs can be used to blow up distracted enemies, with bonus damage for blowing up bombs near the enemy's base core; the fun is explosive. Everything blown up adds points to the respective team's total, and the team with the most points when the timer hits zero will be declared the winner. It's even possible to blow up the enemy's fusion core for an immediate team victory. Press Release: Carbine Studios™ announces next WildStar® update – Sabotage!
