Warframe has a story too

Warframes story is fine IMO been there done that. But we don't know Anthems story because It's not out yet. And IMO Warframes lore is a bit lethargic at times. That said I'll still be playing the new war whenever that drops (soon), coarse that'll probably take 30 min give or take to complete. Then Ill most likely hope back on Anthem.

Not like Warframe does anything "new" there either, but fair.

The story around Warframe's bosses is certainly a plus. In the demo there's no story behind the Hive Queen you fight in the stronghold to my knowledge, whether this differs in the main game we shall see, but I don't expect anything different.

Yea, but something like the Razoback or something interesting with bosses you know what I mean, Bosses with puzzles, not GIANT GLOWING "hit me here" things lol

Well, Apex Legends was announced and released today. I guess I can't play Warframe or Anthem now...

 

Honestly, this thread has become more of an argument then a discussion. 

 

I still like Warframe better than what was shown in the Anthem demo personally but it wasn't the finished product and I'm excited to see what the game is like on full release.

I think I'm going to pass on anthem now. The combat was lacking and didn't give me any hook to latch on to. Alot of the enemies in strongholds were these bullet sponges littered everywhere and i just realised im playing destiny again but with jetpacks that don't suck. 

Yeah... they could have done a better job at explaining the combo system which turns those bullet sponges into smeared confetti in seconds...

 

People, people - Anthem Demo vs Warframe after 5 years of very active development isn't even a competition. Lets A. wait for the full release before passing judgement and B. stop the usual b*** 'ma bases is better' arguments. I personally liked the demo and will most likely buy it. Won't stop me from playing WF. Will stop me from playing Destiny 2 because I'm still annoyed with Bungie over its networking issues but that doesn't mean I'll trash the game.... except Fortnite, that game deserves to die.

Some explanation on what the element did would of been better like which could combo off each other would've been great.

It looks better then destiny but I still think I would stick with Warframe knowing EA would likely make the game $60 while Warframe is free.I think graphics look better on anthem but that doesn’t always mean everything.

Honesty said in the end still got many Tenno willing to support Warframe some even give money to Warframe because DE is known for fairness and honesty, sincerely treat us as family rather than comsumer. What warframe had done for us in 5 years those with eyes should able to see the DE determination to make Warframe success. Lastly dun think Warframe will stop evolving, Warframe still not reaching their limit as for anthem i not sure whether got those loyal consumer willing to spend money to support Anthem. What i see some of the gamer want to play Anthem but will not spend one cent on the stuff so all i can said good luck to anthem and i dare to say EA sure will suck up all the consumer money before Anthem going down.

They've already claimed to be addressing some concerns people have mentioned for the live version IE: the combo system is better explained and primers and detonators are more clearly labeled. They also claim things like KB/mouse controls are improved since the demo, which could be especially nice for swimming which for me was almost 100% useless in the demo. In the stronghold I would always just get ported ahead to the rest of the squad as I failed to manage to swim straight or even figure out what direction I I was facing after I got into the water. 

Some things that are concerning but remain questions are:

1) If/when will we be getting text chat? This is a huge deal for a lot of people. 

2) How significant are the performance improvements they claim are already in the live version compared to the demo + what additional improvements will be coming after launch? DX12 support also wasn't implemented in the demo but might be in live or added at a later time which could be a huge deal for those of us with lower end systems (SWBF2 already has beta dx12 support and uses the same engine). 

Loading times are also a huge issue especially considering you get a loading screen so frequently (even just going into a cave in freeplay). This is also an issue I think they need to address as you can find old interviews in which they claim Anthem is seamless and doesn't have loading screens at all after you launch into an area (https://www.usgamer.net/articles/anthems-open-world-is-completely-seamless). Clearly if that was ever the case, it no longer is as you frequently are hit with obnoxious loading screens in the demo. Are they planning on changing that at some point so you don't have loading screens all over freeplay?

3) How often will they add new javelins or new abilities to existing ones? There's already videos out showing end-game gear that will be in at launch and you don't see any additional abilities than what we saw in the demo. Some of them are fun, but it's a very small list currently. 

I think the game has huge potential and it will just be a matter of living up to it. Based on that interview I linked I also kind of feel like EA rushed them out the door since it seems like they had to cut some corners and didn't implement things the way they had claimed to have in the interview.

Yup. Not even close. 

Would also add immersivness and verticality. 

coarse it shouldn't be difficult with the gaming engines running today to completely destroy the dated engine that Warframe runs on. 

yeah...thing is, the frostbite engine in anthem runs like hot garbage from the rear of a kubrow XD

really poorly optimized,(consoles cant run at 30fps and high end pc's cant reach 60 fps, hell i barelly reach the 50 fps on an overclocked rig) and in my humble opinion a really good optimized engine is better than any "pretty" engine

the evolution engine is designed to be modified, thats why steeve can implement new effects with almost no performance cost, while the stupid frostbite engine is a nightmare to manage according to devs testimonies

and dont get me wrong, im really interested in anthem for its gameplay, but their terrible optimization is a deal breaker

Laughs in Hall of Mirrors.

Didn't notice any performance issues myself, and my rig is hardly high end. Only got a AMD RX480.

I managed to get into the limited alpha or beta demo, can't remember which one and also got into the free weekend demo too.

From my experience with the demo It's an ok game honestly. Not great, but not bad either, it has potential but as it stands I feel that once I do all the story missions and strongholds I'll probably get bored real quick.

The things that I enjoyed was the ability to switch from running to flying almost seamlessly (although the flying controls were a bit of a pain, not a fan of those), the combo system felt rewarding once you figured it our since it allowed you to kill enemies more efficiently and one or two of the missions very quite unique (ex. search for 6 data logs in the middle of a mine field while a big ass monster is chasing you in the said mine field, fun time). I feel like DE could maybe 'borrow' some of the more interesting ideas from there but other than that the demo seemed kinda mediocre and the story so far didn't really hook me much.

Oh and I was rubber banding like crazy the whole time, hope they fix that before launch.

@DeMonkey right...Meanwhile in Anthem...

my neighbors think there is a jet aircraft flying over their house. 

My ears enjoyed that, reminds me of hitting the booster in Elite Dangerous.

Just hope when that day comes people will start to show fairness to Warframe because in the end Warframe and Anthem is a game that need heavy grind and will take ton of the consumer time. TBH in the end Warframe and Anthem is going toward same path. Content/combat/gameplay/lore/cosmetic/Progress after all these it will become daily grind fest.. The only difference is EA/Bioware and DE, EA/Bioware is a Triple A/with alot money and DE a small indie/with limit money but in the end both want their own game to success.

Pre ordered the game because I am interested in it and also FOUNDER status and free ranger skin ( preparing for the inevitable “NEVER PRE ORDER” comment flood). I love Warframe and Anthem, why people hate it? is it because jealousy that you dont have enough money to buy this game or run it? Or you just hate it because other people hate it? I know that EA published the game but they have learned their lesson (EA lost stock because of the recent controversies). Battlefront 2 doesnt have a season pass and they are still supporting it with updates.

My opinion about anthem is that the game looks amazing and the flight controls is better than Warframe’s archwing and also gives me the only thing that warframe doesn’t have “endgame content that is actually making me sweat”

They've always been pretty terrible and they've only got worse over time. I have hard time believing they would change their direction any time soon.

i hate to be that guy but "NEVER PRE-ORDER" and im not saying it cuz i dont have enough money, im actually going to buy it if they improve the optimization by the 15 when people start reviewing the actual final product, but i also have experience with pre-orders and you will always regret it, ALWAYS, best thing you can do is wait, be patient and if the game sucks you wont be feeling bad for spending money on a false promise

do you really want to spend all that money that you probabably wont get back because of terrible EA's poilicy, plus a title no one will care about and a pretty lame skin?

Hype around anthem is slowly dying. I haven't bought it yet(played the demo through an invite) and I honestly will wait for initial reviews. I've heard that it will release with 3 instances(tyrant mine + 2) so I want to see what the full game will offer before I jump on the ship.

Yes, it's my money. I can do whatever I want with it. My PC is quite beefy so I dont have to worry about unplayable frame rate.

My FPS on the open demo build is 60-80  at 1080p ultra settings with Shadows and AA turned to high

Give them time, after the Battlefront lootbox fiasco they are becoming less predatory with their microtransactions.

Bioware stated that the game is not Pay2Win and the DLCs are free
