Customization Galore in WildStar
Have you been wandering around WildStar recently, thinking to yourself:
"Why don’t I have an adorable little companion pet scurrying beside me? And why don’t I have a more customizable outfit system to truly cater to my very specific outfit needs?"
Well ask no longer, WildStar players, for there is a new update on the horizon, and it’s just for you!
In a post written by Lead Systems Designer Joe Piepiora, he describes a new update titled “Customization: The Deep Dive”. In this patch are two major new customization options: the ability to collect and summon companion pets, and a revamp of the wardrobe system - dubbed “The Holo-Wardrobe”.
In the new patch, the WildStar team is adding 54 companion pets for players to collect, and can be obtained by doing a variety of different tasks around the WildStar world. Things like dungeons, vendors, or random drops are some of the ways you’ll be able to collect a new companion army.
Alongside the companion pets is the Holo-Wardrobe, which is all about customizing your clothes. Players will no longer have costume slots, and you will now be able to save item appearances to an account-wide list of threads. So if you were to edit a costume you had saved, and clicked on pants, you’d get a long list of helmets you had unlocked, you can even dye every bit of gear. With this system, you will have account-bound costume appearances, and the ability to have any kind of costume you like, as long as it has been unlocked.
At the end of the post, they also drop a hint at the next content update, which will concern player housing.
