This coming week on September 6 will see WildStar‘s latest content update, which brings with it the much requested feature of “Communities” – the ability to link multiple housing plots – as well as a competition to help kickstart the launch (with a cash top prize).
Officially launching with Homecoming on September 6 and lasting until 11:59pm PDT on October 4, the Community Showdown is the preeminent competition for seasoned architects, landscapers, and interior designers to flaunt your elite skills and let vanity be thy true tape measure. But this isn’t your mama’s House of Haunts contest. This time, through the foundation of a Community, you’re in it to win it with a full five conjoined Housing plots fashioned to elegant perfection!
Just let it be known, you must register via the contest page using your NC Account by September 20 in order to participate in the Community Showdown.
The winning team in each region will be awarded a $2,500 (or €2.403,85) cash prize split equally among all members registered to the team on the contest site, with seven runner up teams whose registered team members will be granted the ability to claim any 10 items from the “Housing” section of the In-Game Store.
For those not inclined (or able) to join in the competition, the update also brings a series of “Residential Renovation” quests that will offer Home Renovation Guides which can be exchanged for housing décor, achievements, pets, and mounts.
