PS4 FORTUNA: UPDATE 24 (LIVE!)

[DE]Danielle

Hello PS4 friends!

Here to share some information about tomorrow's Fortuna release Update size! As we mentioned in the OP, "a brand new open landscape with all the fixings makes this update rather large" and it's definitely a chunky one (roughly 8GB!). This is also in part due to a fix we included that touched on all audio in the game (mostly under the hood that affected audio syncing!). 

So that you're prepared for and ready to download tomorrow's December 10th release at 10 AM EDT, we suggest taking the time to make room on your PS4 if needed! 

Thank you, see you all tomorrow 👋❤️

FORTUNA: UPDATE 24 IS LIVE!!! 

 

============

If you watched the Game Awards last night you would have heard the good news!

FORTUNA: UPDATE 24 IS LAUNCHING MONDAY, DECEMBER 10TH!! 

You will be visited by Red Text early in the morning around 10 AM EDT to get the countdown started to Fortuna! Thank you for all your support ❤️ 


============
That’s right, Part 1 of Fortuna is now in cert!

A combination of hard work from the console team and words of encouragement from the community has brought us to today’s send off of Fortuna: Update 24 to Sony!  

This is just the first installment of Fortuna content! You can expect more to come in the new year, including more Conservation species, new Operator Amps, and your chance to take down the ultimate threat roaming these terraformed lands. 

This update includes content from Hotfix 23.10.7 to 24.1.1.1*, along with additional cherry picked integrations beyond. As you can expect, a brand new open landscape with all the fixings makes this update rather large - so now would be a good time to make some room on your PS4 to prepare for its release! 

December 9th update on the size of Fortuna: Update 24:

*While we grabbed content from Update 24.1.0, the Round 14 items release in that update for PC will not be included in this build. More information to come!  Learn more here: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1041299-tennogen-round-15-deadline-and-more/

We look forward to watching you nail nose plankers and tail clutches on your K-Drive, fill your Orbiters up with Floofs, and build up your Arsenal with Kitguns. We’re ecstatic to spend our holidays with you all in the Vallis, thank you for helping us lift together! 

There is over 26 pages of Update notes! Let's get started with a look into some of what Fortuna: Update 24 will bring:

THE ORB VALLIS

venus_1.png

Located in the eye of a snowstorm, The Orb Vallis was once a scorching wasteland. When the Solaris reactivated the Orokin coolant towers, life reappeared in the Vallis. Giant looming mushrooms sprung from the snow, and four-legged Virminks appeared in the valleys. Through their blood, sweat and tears, the Solaris terraformed this barren region into a beautiful, hospitable world — but the Corpus are destroying its delicate balance in their pursuit of profit.

Due to its terraformed environment, Orb Vallis fluctuates between temperature phases, which directly affects certain ecosystems within it. The time cycle between these Temperatures is much shorter than the Day/Night equivalent on the Plains of Eidolon:

  • Warm - approximately 4 minutes
  • Cold - approximately 22 minutes

In-Vallis Bounties
A Solaris United Agent who does not miss his organics awaits you OUTSIDE the doors of Fortuna in the Orb Vallis snow. Other Solaris United Agents are dispatched throughout Orb Vallis at enemy Corpus Camps - take control of the Camp to acquire Bounties from them. This harsh landscape restricts Incursions, but there is much to discover!

Cave Encounters
Take shelter from the storm within the caves of the Orb Vallis. But not all caves are dormant, Tenno...

ORB VALLIS ENEMIES

Corpus-Explorable-Base-revised.jpg

Corpus Terra Variants - Tasked to maintain Nef Anyo’s voracious control over the Orb Vallis, these new specialized units have advanced their attacks, weaponry, and icy attitude towards the Tenno. 

Elite Terra Corpus Variants (from Hotfix 24.0.9) - These level 30+ Elite variants have higher Health/Shields and hit with harder damage!

Raknoids and Orbs -  As you explore the Vallis, beware of mechanical, spider-like machines known as Raknoids. These Corpus-designed creatures range in size and lethality, from tiny Mites to massive, invulnerable Orbs that loom over the region. Fortuna’s brightest are currently researching how to take down these Orbs, but for now, steer clear.

New Alert Levels
The Corpus have synchronized a way to ramp up the fight in Orb Vallis. Your time out in the open world could be calm - or frantic, depending on the Alert Level! You can reach a maximum of 4 Stars which will have increasingly difficult and scaling enemies.

New Resources!
The lands of the Vallis are home to many species of organic life. From glowing fungi to mucus mounds, encounter what this unique environment has to offer. The Corpus have also settled into this biodome and littered their own tech resources across the land to be discovered.

  • Added Fortuna Resources to common containers found throughout Vallis as per Hotfix 24.0.1.

FORTUNA & SOLARIS UNITED
9eca3ca99a21ab7adf36186e085a066e.jpg


Down in the underground city of Fortuna, you’ll meet the Solaris: a society of body-augmented individuals who live in debt-internment under Corpus rule. A colony all too familiar with the reality of being “repossessed” — cybernetic limb and organ removal by Nef Anyo’s repo squads. Yet in these cautious times, the Solaris are a hopeful community who pride themselves in their efforts to terraform Venus.

VOX SOLARIS QUEST
Eudico, the once proud leader of Solaris United, has been reduced to serving Nef Anyo under near slave-like conditions to keep the rig jockeys of Fortuna safe. You will have to help her regain her will to fight so that she can stand up to Nef Anyo and bring back the Solaris United resistance.

  • The quest will be re-playable from the Codex on launch as per Hotfix 24.0.4!
  • Integrated balances in the Vox Solaris quest to decrease difficulty as per Hotfix 24.0.4 and 24.0.7.

Completing the Vox Solaris Quest will unlock the following Vendors in Fortuna:

  • Eudico - Bounties
  • The Business- Fishing & Conservation
  • Legs - Moa Companions
  • Vox Solaris - Raknoid Hunting & Operator Agent
  • Roky & Boon - Ventkids & K-Drives

6fe60e22fc03c96a055362034ba61235.jpg

Spoiler

This Fortuna vendor will be your one-stop shop for the mining tools and resources you need to extract the 10 new Ores and Gems of The Orb Vallis!

Smokefinger also has a lustrous list of Offerings available for purchase using Solaris United Standing that includes the SUNPOINT PLASMA DRILL, a high-intensity mining tool capable of extracting the rarest of materials with surgical precision, Gem Resource Blueprints, and the Orb Vallis Captura Scene! 

  • Increased frequency of Rare Gems in Smokefinger’s Offerings as per Hotfix 24.1.1.

Note: Ostron Mining Tools will be able to be used out in The Orb Vallis to mine Gems/Ore, but the Sunpoint Plasma Drill is required to mine the rarest Gems in Vallis!


The Business - Fishing & Conservation
Animal-Conservation.jpg

Spoiler

This Fortuna vendor is your gateway to two activities out on the Orb Vallis: EMP Spearfishing & Conservation!

EMP Spearfishing!

Your EMP Spearfishing journey to catch the robotic 'Servofish' in The Orb Vallis will start with The Business' offer of PULSE SPEARS - tools used to disable mechanical fish! The Business offers 2 variants of Pulse Spears: The SHOCKPROD and the STUNNA

The fishing mechanic in the Orb Vallis is different - not only is aiming precision necessary, but also timing your Pulse detonation! Land within the red bar to succeed!

Note: Your Ostron Spears will still work in The Orb Vallis, but the fish will be damaged. The key is to catch undamaged fish with the specialized Pulse Spears!

There are 13 species of Servofish to be discovered in the various Coolant areas of the Orb Vallis! 

  • Servofish will not spawn in shallow cave puddles as per Hotfix 24.1.1
  • QOL change from Hotfix 24.1.2: Servofish parts will display which Servofish they can be Dismantled from!
     

Conservation - Track and Tranq:

The Business is also equipped with gear that will allow you to aid in the desperate Conservation effort of The Orb Vallis' wildlife. Two key pieces of gear are required for Conservation: TRANQ RIFLE & ECHO LURES (Each species has its own Echo Lure! You'll have to progress through the Solaris United Syndicate to acquire some Lures)! Both can be acquired with Solaris United Standing. 

  • Bad/Good/Perfect Captures are stressed based, which rises when the animal comes in contact with a player. A quick tranq of a non-startled animal will yield you a ‘Perfect Capture’ as per hotfix 24.0.2!
  • Animals that wake up from their invulnerable sleep due to certain Warframe Abilities will become vulnerable once again. Timing and speed is your best bet for that Perfect Capture as per Hotfix 24.0.7!
     

Why Conserve?
In addition to rewarding Standing for each catch, you will be able to earn treasured items for your efforts. Each animal you successfully conserve will yield you a Tag that can be exchanged for a treasured reminder of your efforts to help the wildlife. From 'Floofs' to a badge, these offerings will be available from The Business!

  • Resource Boosters will apply to Tags procured from capturing animals in Orb Vallis as per Hotfix 24.0.4


Rude Zuud - Zuud’s Murderizers (Kitguns - Modular Secondaries)Kitgun-Build.jpg

Spoiler

The creator of the “Murderizers”... or more formally KITGUNS! Zuud is a bit of a stranger to formalities, might have something to do with all the static in her head… While she might have a couple of loose screws, that won’t keep you from crafting your very own soldered sidearms at Zuud’s Lathe!

These Corpus-tech Modular Secondaries are crafted using a Chamber, Grip, and Loader. Blueprints for these components are purchased from Zuud using Solaris United Standing. 

  • Reduced base Critical and Status Chance of the Tombfinger Chamber from 27% to 24% and increased damage from 80 to 84 as per Hotfix 24.0.2.

Zuud also offers enhancements for your Kitguns known as PAX ARCANES! Similar to Exodias for Zaw Melee weapons, these Arcanes can be installed on your Kitgun in your Arsenal once they have been Gilded.

  • Pax Charge: Kitgun Magazine is replaced by bolts fueled by a recharging battery.

Zuud offers other services as well such as the ability to Entitle your Secondary Weapons for Platinum!


Legs - Moa CompanionsMOA-Pets.jpg

Spoiler

At Legs’ Pets & Parts, Tenno can assemble, customize, and name new Moa friends.

Visit Legs to spend Solaris United Standing for Moa part Blueprints! Once you have a Model, Core, Gyro, and Brackets, you can assemble your Moa.

Model:
The head determines a Moa’s model type by unlocking a unique set of Moa Precept Mods. Once you acquire Precept Mods by purchasing the corresponding Moa head, you can use those Precept Mods interchangeably with each head:

Para Moa

  • Whiplash Mine: Deploys a mine that tethers all enemies in an area. A brief moment and all enemies still in range get pulled to the mine.
  • Anti-Grav Grenade: A Grenade that reverses gravity in a radius, inflicting Impact Damage. Target sustains additional damage based on the amount sustained while airborne.

Lambeo Moa

  • Vulcax: Charges up a powerful blast of ultra-heated plasma.


Ticker - Debt Tokens6bfa805fa30223914b793e44a6b86ad8.jpg

Spoiler

At Ticker’s Used Goods, Ticker deals in debt forgiveness for Fortuna workers who might otherwise face punishment. Ticker can tell you about each case and the price they might pay for their debts. You will be able to help them by purchasing their Debt-Bonds and earn Debt-Bonds! 

You can exchange Debt Tokens for Solaris United Standing. There are five variations of Debt Tokens:

  • Training Debt-Bond, Shelter Debt-Bond = Common
  • Medical Debt-Bond, Advances Debt-Bond = Uncommon
  • Familial Debt-Bond = Rare

VOX SOLARIS: Raknoid Hunting & Operator Agent
Operator-Armour.jpg

Spoiler

A shadow faction led by a familiar face.

  • All Spaceport enemies have a chance to drop the Vega Toroid.
  • All Enrichment Labs enemies have a chance to drop the Calda Toroid.
  • All Temple of Profit enemies have a chance to drop the Sola Toroid.

And if you’re lucky, you might find Toroids in your spelunking explorations!

There are currently 2 ranks with the Vox Solaris, and as knowledge of somethin’ big that creeps across the tundra grows, so will the Vox Solaris Ranks and Offerings. 

Note: You will need to complete The Second Dream quest before you can be initiated into Vox Solaris as a particular member of the Vox restrict who exactly can speak to them. 

Standing with the Vox can be used to purchase the newest classes of Mechanical Operator Armour:

SMELTER
Operator armor inspired by those Solaris who must work in searing heat.

OUTRIDER
Operator Armor modeled on enviro-gear worn by the surveyors and scouts of the Orb Vallis.

VENT RAT
Lightweight and practical Operator Armor designed for flexibility and tight squeezes.

HAZTECH
Operator Armor modeled on the daredevils of Fortuna's maintenance crews.


Roky & Boon - Ventkids

kdrive_grinding.jpg

Spoiler

VENTKIDS STANDING

Howzit, glinty? If you’re looking for a new way to traverse the Orb Vallis, the Ventkids have you covered. Hangin’ with their logical fam in the ducts of Fortuna, the Ventkids get by stealing parts from the Corpus and and running K-Drive races out on the Vallis. 

Earn Ventkids Standing upon returning to Fortuna by performing tricks on your K-Drive out in the Vallis. You’ll have to keep an eye out for floating purple K-Drive Trick Boosters that appear while riding out on the Vallis: hit them for an instant boost to your trick score multiplier!

Roky - K-Drive Acquisition

A member of the Vent Pobbers gang, Roky is your go-to for all things K-Drives. You can exchange Ventkids Standing with her for K-Drive component blueprints, and she will even bash together a plank for you if you ask nicely.

These components do not offer any stat bonuses, but the Board will earn you Mastery when you rank up your K-Drive -- no Gilding required! You will be able to earn Affinity for your K-Drive by completing tricks in the Vallis.

  • Removed the cap of 5 tricks in a single jump. You will be able trick infinitely if your jump is good enough as per Hotfix 24.0.2.
     

For additional statistic or functionality boosts, Roky also offers a variety of Mods (in exchange for Ventkids Standing) for you to equip on your K-Drive in the Arsenal. Much like your Archwing, K-Drives can be customized in the new combined “Vehicles” (previously “Archwing”) mode in your Arsenal. You will be able to change the colors and choose your K-Drive Scrawl, featuring art from the Ventkids themselves!

Boon - K-Drive Customization & Races

When you get out there to grind your way through Orb Vallis, keep an eye out for Boon, the leader of the Kubrodon Ventkid Gang, who wants to see if your K-Drive skills are up to snuff. You will have to look for Ventkids Icons on your minimap in the Vallis to find various K-Drive Race courses littered throughout the landscape.

Note: Races will eventually be more intense - including 'admission cost' Standing to participate, rewarding Standing on high-performing runs, and even leaderboard rewards! To help us stress test issues, we are NOT launching with 'admission costs' as we do not want to have a high-risk scenario in case of issues. Be prepared for higher risk, higher reward Races in the New Year!


GARUDA

Garuda.jpg

Our 37th Warframe is arriving: GARUDA! Death's crimson maiden. The blood of Garuda's foes imbue her with strength and vitality. If no Melee weapon is equipped, Garuda will resort to using her talons to deal damage and attack enemies. These claws can be Modded and upgraded in the Arsenal.

NEW WEAPONS

Garuda-Crossbow.jpg

NAGANTAKA
Slash targets with a single precise bolt from Garuda’s signature crossbow. Alt-fire to let loose a barrage of bolts. All bolts have a chance to cause bleeding and headshots have a chance to increase reload speed.

The Nagantaka Blueprint will be available in the in-game Market.
 

Corpus-Hatchet-(Kreska).jpg

KRESKA
This unsophisticated Corpus survival tool does what it was designed for: hacking and splitting whatever it strikes.
 

Corpus-Pistol-(Ocucor).jpg

OCUCOR
A weapon that reaches for its next victim even as it kills. With each takedown, this pistol spawns an energy tendril that reaches for a nearby target.
 

Corpus-Rifle-(Battacor).jpg

BATTACOR
A weapon that builds charge the more it kills. Hit capacity then release for an obliterating discharge of power.

Research for the Kreska, Ocucor, and Battacor can be found in the Dojo Energy Lab, or in the in-game Market for Platinum.
 

NEW SENTINEL

Oxylus Sentinel
The Oxylus Sentinel was designed to assist in Search-and-Rescue operations through the harsh landscape around The Orb Vallis. It comes equipped with two Precepts to do just that:

  • Scan Matter: Resource containers within an area  are revealed periodically on the Minimap for a limited time.
  • Scan Lifeforms: Increases the maximum Active Conservation Encounters.

The Oxylus' default weapon is the Multron Rifle! A new Sentinel weapon that fires a burst of armor piercing rounds. You will be able to pick up the Oxylus Blueprint by visiting The Business in Fortuna.

Note: This Sentinel requires two open slots.


New Sentinel “Assault Mode” Attack Precept Mod

In an effort to reduce the inventory duplication clutter that came with the individual Sentinel attack Precept Mods, Wyrm, Wyrm Prime, Carrier, Carrier Prime, Dethcube, Taxon, and the newest Oxylus will, after the update goes live, come with the Assault Mode Mod: “Sentinel will attack first visible enemy within an area”.

  • If you already own the original attack Mods they will remain in your inventory but will not be able to be equipped with Assault Mode.

  • We increased damage falloff range on the Sweeper Mod by 5m to allow it to work effectively with the Assault Mode Mod.

New Beasts “Fetch” Mod!
A new Mod, for Kubrows and Kavats (Beasts) is coming! “Fetch” detects and collects items within an area for its master, including Mods.

Fetch operates the same as the coveted Vacuum Mod for Sentinels.  You will be able to find the Fetch Mod from New Hyena variants in the Orb Vallis. 

With the addition of the Fetch mod, we have changed Vacuum and Fetch mods to pull the items directly to the Warframe as opposed to the Sentinel/Pet.

Mining Changes (Plains of Eidolon & Vallis):

In Update 24, Ore/Gem extraction is done by heating a deposit to the ideal temperature. Aiming and shooting your Mining tool at any of the heat spots on a deposit will begin the process! 

A thermometer gauge ring will appear with boxed indicators that denote where you have to land in order to extract from the deposit. Simply hold the fire button and release when you are inside any of the indicators on the ring. Red deposits still indicate Ores and Blue indicates Gems. Landing in the smaller of the indicators yields Gems (even on a Red deposit).

    CHANGES
    Expand spoilers below for list! 

    Spoiler

    Arbitration changes:

    • Arbitration Drones will be exempt from Infested Ancient Healer Auras.
    • Reduced Arbitration Defense Wave length to balance mission time played in comparison to Arbitration Survival missions.
    • Slightly increased the hitbox of Arbitration Drones.

    Arca Plasmor Change:

    The previous Mainline update of Chimera 23.10.6 included a sneaky bug that removed falloff damage from the Arca Plasmor and the Shwaak Prism. The Arsenal continued to state the always present falloff (10.0 - 20.0) but it wasn’t truly applying. We have fixed this bug, which resulted in adding falloff damage back to the Arca Plasmor and Shwaak Prism, and thus returned it to its original falloff state prior to Update 23.10.6. This also fixes the Conclave Arsenal displaying the incorrect falloff damage for the Arca Plasmor.

    Note from [DE]Megan: I’m personally an Arca Plasmor devotee, and after testing comparisons, it truly remains a radiated plasma punch to the face.

    Operator Suit Mesh Revisit:

    You may recall mention in the Update 23.10.6 thread that Operator Suit Mesh changes will release when they are in better condition. We felt the first pass on PC lacked polish, so the changes were held back until more revision could be made. That said, this update is bringing a much smoother roll-out of our changes to Operator fashion. Since mixing and matching pieces is becoming the norm, we want all Operator cosmetics to be compatible with this.

    Changes will be implemented so that the hood mesh is no longer attached to the Chest piece of the Operator.

    The Operator Waistband section will also display each Suit’s waist attachments with the proper highlighted cloth displaying in the Icon. 

    General Changes: 

    • Vigilante Pursuit has been changed to an Exilus Mod! This Mod currently has similar function to the Enemy Sense Mod, therefore using a Mod slot was counter intuitive.
    • You will be able to travel to other Relays/Towns when accessing the Star Chart from a Relay/Town.
    • The following UI screens have received visual changes to better match the chosen Theme:
      • Cutting Fish Bait in Cetus
      • Cancelling a Foundry build
      • Viewing a members Clan contributions in the Clan screen
      • Harvesting a Resource Drone in the Star Chart
    • Increased the speed at which Kubrows/Kavats attempt to catch up to you from far distances.
    • Bounty completion UI will indicate that no Standing is gained from completed said Bounty if you are at your daily cap.
    • Improved the virtual cursor so that it no longer focuses on Star Chart nodes when sufficiently zoomed out.
    • Bounty boards aesthetically changed across the board (Cetus). Hover to view Bounty details. Select the "REWARD DETAILS" button to expand the reward list.
    • Vaykor Hek now has 0.7 Disposition as intended with the Riven Disposition Changes from the November 8th hotfix. When tweaking Riven Dispositions we missed the Vaykor Hek when changing the normal Hek - they now have matching Dispositions.
    • Increased the Archwing max height in the Plains of Eidolon to 300 meters.
    • The following Dojo rooms have received a quantity cap (Clans that currently exceed the cap will keep them):
      • The Inspiration Hall now has a max quantity of 3
      • The Custom Obstacle Course now has a max quantity of 5
    • The ‘SENTINEL’ Inventory category has been renamed to ‘ROBOTICS’ to welcome the new MOA Companions.
    • The Zaw Foundry category will be the ‘Modular Weapon’ category. It includes Zaws, K-Drive, Kitguns, Moa and Amp parts.
    • The Hastened Deflection Mod will be changed to a ‘BEAST’ Mod, meaning it’s also compatible with Kavats and Helminth Charger.
    • Numerous Bells, Lanterns, and Nature Decorations in the Dojo have received the PBR treatment!
    • The Hystrix’s Alt Fire stats will be split into tabs when viewed in the Inventory, to fix the stat information running off the screen.
    • Companions will teleport to you immediately after you dismount from Archwing.
    • … and more! 
       

    And almost 2 pages of fixes! 

    Once Fortuna: Update 24 has passed cert we will update this thread with the official date of release!
