A new WildStar feature called Contracts will be included in the Invasion: Nexus update which Carbine Studios hopes will make the game “more fun and less grindy” for players.

According to Carbine, Contracts are “bite-sized, repeatable elder-game” content which can be completed rather quickly.

Contracts can be obtained on a board in capital cities and provide the player with new ways to earn gear. Five new contracts will be made available per day and players can choose three at a time, with PvP and PvE contracts counting separately, so payers can have three PvP contracts and three PvE Contracts at once.

Some require the player to dispatch enemies such as Moodies or Skeech, obtain a certain number of multi-kills, or by running veteran adventures. Each will have varying rewards and difficulty spanning three levels.

Rewards include in-game gold, a loot bag containing Glory, Prestige or gear, reward points, a milestone point or even a mystery box which could contain a mount or vanity pet. The bigger the milestone, the greater the reward.

Sounds interesting and a nice change of pace for Wildstar players.
