New Gear for the New Year

Written by Team WildStar on December 30, 2015

With each new year, the Protostar Corporation recommits themselves to bringing only the very best, newest, and most arguable necessary trinkets, toys, and baubles to the In-Game Store. This year is no different, especially since some pretty shoddy security in the Winterfest SuperMall-in-the-Sky led to them almost literally giving away the store. So let’s get fiscal!

This week we have an array of new items; from the cute to the downright dangerous. Take a gander! 

Ice, Ice, Baby


Introducing Sniffles the baby Ice Heynar! This little tyke is pretty well accustomed to the cold, and goes well with even the most discerning of “Papa” Phineas cosplayers. Just be sure to keep plenty of Protostar-brand tissues around, because the name is all too literal. Heynar sinuses are famously delicate.

We Got the Beaks


Meet Beaksy! Instead of migrating south for the winter this young Ravenok has decided to stay behind to be with you. Those wings may be tiny, but Beaksy's heart is full of love for you. So just to be clear, you also accept all medical responsibility for this enlarged heart condition.

Ritzy Riding Lizard

Golden Velocirex

Ride around in style on a spectacular new golden velocirex. Yes, one of the most aerodynamic creatures on Nexus is now in a shade befitting the consumerism-driven Winterfest season: gold! Claim one for your very own.

Taking You to the Vet

Veteran Costume Set

How long have you been adventuring on Nexus? Show everyone at the local watering hole you’ve “been through some stuff” with the all-new Veteran costume set! 

Celebrate an Arbitrary Date with Explosions

New Year's Fireworks & Hoverboard Flair

What better way to ring in the new year than by igniting chemicals in low orbit. A crate of Protostar-approved fireworks will do the trick! 

Ride with Danger

Celebrate another year on Nexus by launching yourself hundreds of feet into the air with New Year’s hoverboard flair. Don't worry - it's all approved by the Protostar Safety Inspection Division Department!


Note: The pets and mounts shown here can be purchased as single or multi-character unlocks. Except for the Veteran costume, which unlocks for all characters on your account via the Holo-Wardrobe.

To access the store:

  • Launch the game
  • Click on the NCoin icon on the bottom left or press the letter “U” on your keyboard

Most everything on the store can be purchased using either OmniBits (a free currency earned in-game alongside XP), or NCoin, so get your Protostar-approved Winterfest items today!


We’re not going to ask for a kiss at midnight, but it’s a new year, and a new chance to give WildStar a shot—for free!
