[PC] Coming This Week: The Old Blood

Recommended Posts

Curious about the melee reworks affecting non-melee type mods like Amalgam Javlok Magazine Warp. Like what will the +90% channeling efficiency get replaced with, and will parrying still be a thing?

I'd like to know the code of action: plague star activity, when can it reappear

Hopefully sooner then later with primary and secondary getting a 9th mod slot for DE selected mods like silencing mods. Atop the plat to unlock them, it's going to require even more forma per weapon to fit 9 maxed out mods.

GrendelHeader_Template_3840x1040_v2019.jpg

The dead shall rise again, and their vengeance will be swift and merciless. In The Old Blood update, take on the Kuva Lich, your personal villain; trample your prey as the ravenous Grendel; cleave through flesh and bone with the robust Melee Phase 2 rework; utilize Vauban and Ember’s revamped Ability Kits; and collect a smorgasbord of new Gear and Customizations.

DEVOUR THE WICKED AS GRENDEL

Like a predator, Grendel barrels in to feast on the cruel and corrupted. Despite his fearsome appearance, Grendel is a noble spirit whose generosity is matched only by his insatiable hunger. Visit the Leverian to begin your hunt for Grendel.

Passive
Each enemy consumed grants bonus armor.

Feast
Swallow an enemy whole and store it in Grendel’s gut. Not satisfied? Keep eating, but beware -- each foe in Grendel’s belly slowly consumes energy. Hold to vomit out stored enemies covering them in toxic bile.

Nourish
Consume the enemies in Grendel’s gut and nourish nearby squad members with a radial buff.

Regurgitate
Violently puke out a bile-soaked enemy from Grendel’s gut, turning the consumed into a toxic projectile.

Pulverize
Engorged from feeding, Grendel curls into a ball and sends any enemies in his path flying.

YOUR PERSONAL VILLAIN

We maggots live — not long… We hope. More life. Work. Kill… maybe Queens notice.

Maybe they share. The old blood.

84ac505df29b9fa411d3cca54df1e428.jpg

Tenno, you are not the only one with the gift of resurrection. The most worthy Grineer soldiers are receiving the power of Kuva. Strike these Kuva-Spiked Grineer down and they shall rise again, stronger and more ruthless than before.

Their goal? To take you down.

Land the killing blow on a Kuva-Spiked Grineer, and their death triggers their rebirth into your Kuva Lich. Your Lich will claim territory in the Origin System, using their influence to build a following of loyal Thralls. Track these lesser beings down and gather intel on the Lich's whereabouts. Your squadmates may help you in the process, but only you can give your Kuva Lich its final taste of fear with the Parazon ⁠— the hidden blade of the Tenno. Be warned: If you manage to defeat your Lich, another may rise to take its place.

We are maggots. But… eventually… even maggots... can fly.

MELEE CHANGES: PHASE 2

Building on the Melee changes from earlier this year, Phase 2 introduces devastating new combat techniques, smoother combos, the return of manual blocking and more!

Heavy Attacks
Phase 2 introduces new Heavy Attacks for all Melee Weapons. These attacks are slower but deal a mighty punch. String them together with your default Melee Attacks to create a symphony of destruction.

Mid-Air Madness
Melee attacks now work in mid-air! Now you can live out your gravity-defying ninja combat dreams.

Lift and Juggle
Certain Melee attacks can now lift enemies into the air, leaving them exposed to follow-up attacks. Attack them in mid-air to keep them juggled and trapped in a world of pain.

Combo Maker
The Combo system received a wide array of changes, including more intuitive combos for Melee Stances, a Combo Counter rework and smoother combo transitions to keep your flow going.

Melee Rebalance
We gave Melee Weapons their long-awaited rebalance pass, which includes Melee Weapon stats, Melee Mod rebalances and more.

Return of Manual Blocking and Melee State
Thanks to your feedback from Phase 1, manual blocking and a full Melee-only attack state have returned!

Learn more in our official Dev Workshop.

VAUBAN & EMBER REVISITED

This update delivers two highly requested Warframe reworks ⁠— Vauban and Ember! Vauban’s Kit allows for crowd control on the go and introduces a suite of new offensive capabilities, including the devastating Orbital Strike. Ember’s Kit synergises around her new Immolation Meter, which grants her some much-needed survivability and increases her firepower. We hope these changes strike a balance between adding exciting new features and facelifting old favorites. Read the Dev Workshop for the full details!

TITANIA DELUXE

Like a moth to a flame, bewitch your friends as Titania Deluxe. Includes Deluxe Skins for her Dex Pixia and Diwata Exalted Weapons, a Gunblade Weapon Skin and a set of Titania Armor.

TENNO REINFORCEMENTS

Engorge yourself on this feast of new Gear and Customizations, fit for a voracious predator.

Grendel Collection
The full collection includes the Grendel Warframe; the Grendel Glutt Helmet; the Masseter, an unusual crankshaft-style Heavy Blade; the Sumbha Syandana; and 3-Day Credit and Affinity boosters.

Grendel Glutt Helmet
Dinner is served. An iconic helmet for Grendel.

Sumbha Syandana
A most curious syandana and one favored by the gallant gourmand, Grendel.

Masseter
Grendel's signature weapon.Tear and chew through enemies with this unusual crankshaft-style Heavy Blade.

Vasca Kavat
A drinker of life, this Kavat prowls the Plains upon dusk. Vasca includes two exclusive Mods: Vampiric Bite and Transfusion. Vampiric Bite allows her attacks to bypass armor and steal health for her master, while Transfusion allows her to sacrifice some of her health to raise her fallen master while in bleedout.

Tigris-Themed Companion Armor
Adorn your most-worthy Kubrow and Kavat in this sleek armor of Tenno origin.

Double Space Ninja Entries
Every day you complete one mission in-game between October 25 and October 27, you’ll get an additional entry in our Become A Real Space Ninja Contest! One lucky Tenno (selected at a later date) will win $250,000 towards a trip to space. Click here for full contest rules and guidelines!

ADDITIONAL UPDATE HIGHLIGHTS

  • Pexilus Mod Slot: An extra Mod Slot for primary and secondary weapons, exclusively for Utility Mods!
  • Three additional purchasable Upgrade and Appearance configs, meaning you can expand it up to 6 total per Warframe and Weapon!

Let the feast begin, Tenno.

Tomorrow is the earliest. They go for Wednesdays if they can.

And it's done when it's done.

I mean, to be fair, they got Plains of Eidolon out on the month they said they would. It was broken, but it got released. Same will prob apply to this update. It's def going to be this week, cause next week would put too much stress on the dev team. They DID say they were going to release the Halloween content with this update, and getting that content the day BEFORE Halloween sounds like a bad move imo. Might as well rip the band-aid off.

They've released both early before, and unannounced.
So, it's anyone's guess.

Now that you say that, I'm vaguely remembering an update when that actually did happen. It's been a while though and my memory isn't what it used to be.

And the wait is killing me too.  I think it's slowly killing everyone. I can't wait to get my hands on Grendel and start eating things like Lyphantis, Konzu's lunch, and potato.

Move canceling on Nanchaku and "tactical dodging" have me all worked up.
I'm suuuuper psyched. Been waiting for things like this for 5 straight years.

Warframe has had a bit of a dip on the steam chart. Not a good thing I want this content to drop because I want the game to succeed.

You should have seen what the Bo used to do to people with blast on it. =P
Unless you have, in which case, good times.

Just checked it....

Seems to be doing fine? having about 35k players on average is nothing to scoff at. Still at least in the top of steam charts...
