The day after TennoCon, the content creator ArgonSix was confronted by a less fortunate person in London, Canada. While he was walking back from getting breakfast, he met a person that lives on the street. (Ed. note: Header image courtesy of Redditor KevinGlint).
It now seems like clockwork for Digital Extremes to come out with a new open world zone each year. This year is no exception, but with a catch. At the end of the 30-minute demo of Empyrean, we got glimpse of where the next open world will take us in Warframe. So far, we only have a short trailer and not much more information. There are a few tidbits from the panels at TennoCon that can shed some light on what to expect for the next open world.
Everything is about to change drastically in the next year of updates to Warframe. Grab your ticket to Mars on Elon Musk’s upcoming Space X launch, because Warframe is about to take you and your squad to the next open world. Oh, and you might need to operate the Railjack guns because space is not a relaxing drive.
During TennCon 2019, the surprise announcements kept coming in waves during the final live stream of the night. Just announced, both Wukong Prime and Nightwave Series 2 went live tonight on all systems! Typically, there are weeks in between Prime Accesses and the Nightwave Intermission just ended last week.
Because the combat system in Warframe is continuously evolving with parkour, flying, mod changes, new warframes with unique abilities, and plans, the changes to melee are going to be released in phases. Releasing in stages also ensures the changes do not break too much of the other aspects of the game all at once. Smaller bite-sized chunks of drastic changes give the developers a good foundation for feedback. So far the new melee changes feel like an upgrade to me, but I have noticed some weird results to the changes.
If you look closely at the definition of Gambling Disorder (6C50) and Gaming Disorder (6C51) they mirror each other almost identically. Gambling Disorder or Pathological Gambling first showed up in the ICD in 2015. So what took so long for Gaming Disorder to be added to the ICD if it is at its core, it is Gambling Disorder? Do we have the rampant loot box craze to blame or was it just a matter of time before it was added?
If you haven’t heard, Fortuna update is coming to Warframe in November. The next major update will bring the second open-world experience to Warframe and it is going to be HUGE.
In MMOs factions have become a big deal. It is a game feature that players can relate to and join up with to help identify their character further. In many games factions can take on a whole life of their own. Look at Warcraft with the Horde and Alliance. Fallout has given us some classic factions in their day and a few returning to 76 will be familiar. However, we also get two new factions.
It is weird no matter how much you love a game; there are times you need to take a break from it. I have spent a half of a decade with an on and off relationship with Warframe. I truly love the game and want to play it for many more years to come, but there are times I can’t bring myself to play it. I know I am not the only one that feels the same about Warframe.
Frankly, I felt bad for all the other press members at TennoCon because they will never get the chance to feel as connected to a game as I am. It makes me sad real game journalist like Bill, are too busy to be able to sit down every night and enjoy the game they love like I do. What they do every night is to ensure you, the reader, have the most unbiased snapshot of a game.
First of all, let’s talk about what we know about the new game mode coming to Warframe in the future, and then we can talk about what the possibilities are. If you have been living under a rock, under the sea, and far away from MMORPG.com, you might not know what Codename: Railjack is. I had the pleasure of attending TennoCon 2018, and of talking to Dave Kudirka the Senior Producer for Warframe
The team behind Crowfall has been working hard on their MMO. However, more is going on than just a game. Recently, Artcraft Entertainment announced that they would license out their MMO Artisan Engine for other MMO creators in the market. It is something that Josef Hall, formerly of Shadowbane and Wizard 101 fame was brought on board to do. Todd, Josef, and Gordon all took time to chat with us yesterday about the plans for the Artisan Engine and how development on Crowfall is coming along.
Last year at TennoCon the community was shocked and excited to finally be able to venture into an open world to shoot, bullet jump, and fly like a ninja without being constrained to a hallway. In 2018, Digital Extremes went all in with creating better open-worlds. Even though the new open-world, The Orb Vallis might appear to be similar to Plain of Eidolon, it has a more refined experience.
