Where is Update 26: The Old Blood?

Recommended Posts

Update #26: The Old Blood is on track to be the largest update so far of 2019. It's coming the week of Oct 28-Nov1!

The ravenous Grendel and vengeful Kuva Lich are coming with this Mainline Update alongside Melee Phase 2: Technique and revamped Vauban and Ember. You can read up on some of what’s coming in this news post: https://www.warframe.com/news/the-old-blood

We currently have 26 pages of pure Update notes, and 23 pages of Melee Stat Changes. 49 Pages total as of writing, and there’s a depth to many new features.

For those seeking a detailed preview, we’re dedicating tomorrow’s Prime Time Stream to the Dev Build to walk everyone through what to expect. There’s a LOT to go over! We will put the highlights in writing for those who don't tune into streams. 

We know this Update has a ton of new and changing content, so we’ll be looking to work together with everyone’s feedback in mind after you’ve played The Old Blood. To set realistic expectations on how we are going to be supporting the launch of Update 26, we’ve put together a brief table of the two tracks we’ll be working on. 

Bug track. Because it’s a mainline, we have to fight fires! The majority of day 1-2 Hotfixes will speak to obvious bugs and issues, major impediments in design, and more. Redtext is already working on their material. 

Feedback track. Because so much is changing by design, we want to be clear on how we’re handling your feedback and where we’re reading it. The majority of week 1-2 Hotfixes will speak to feedback. We have all been playing with the current version of Melee for months, the current version of Ember for years, and so on. We want to combine feedback and stats together to iterate. To be a part of the feedback conversation after launch, please be constructive and clear, and most importantly, patient. There’s nothing wrong with first reactions - but relearning takes time. We are especially interested in feedback from players who have taken time to understand The Old Blood. 

BUGS

FEEDBACK

  • Obvious Bugs and Issues
  • Kuva Lich

(Our Sources: stats + forums + targeted feedback megathreads/ reddit / social / videos and streams)


We invite you to be a part of both tracks after The Old Blood launches: informing us of bugs or/and writing detailed experiential feedback. Working with you is what will make the following weeks great.
 

The team here at DE is hard at work and looking forward to sharing this Update with you. It’s all just around the corner! Hope you’re ready to devour.

DElayed again. Not surprised at all. 

In their defense, they said "*possibly* this week", so it technically wasn't delayed.  Steve said they would shoot for this week, but some things were looking iffy, so maybe next week.  Ergo - it is still on schedule, not delayed

I really wish DE would elaborate more on what ends up causing delayed shipping of updates because at this point the "DElayed" memes are just annoying and expected. EVery time we get an estimate of a release, i slot it for 2 weeks after that, minimum

Maybe they're still discussing something regarding the changes, like how Bloodrush and Condition Overload's values were not defined by the time they posted the thread.

Thank you for the update. Seems like Mainline will release "soon".

I hope that my friend can also get his Machete as a login reward "soon".

1000+ login days and still no Machete... 

Just imagine how sad he will be when the Machete will become a top tier weapon with the Mainline.

Yeah, well... "in their defense". 

U mean <<from a certain point of view>> xD

With all due respect everyone, but writing software is not a walk in the park.  Given the amount of changes + new content coming, there will be unforeseen bugs that creep up.

I personally would prefer they take their time and have a polished experience vs. rushing it out only to run into more bugs.
