(NSW) Zephyr & Chroma Prime Vault: Switch Interim Maintenance Update
 

Nintenno, 

We have just launched a maintenance Update which is mainly a back-end change to reclaim our Hotfix space. While it does reclaim our back-end Hotfix space, this Update is also a soft-shader remaster which means it is a large download (6954MiB or 7.29 GB), but once it has downloaded the overall size of Warframe on the Switch will be reduced by roughly 2 GB! Please ensure you have 7.29GB free on your Switch before downloading the Update. 

This will bring us up to the same spot as the other consoles, so we will be able to Hotfix alongside them as usual. Keep in mind this update is purely backend, there won’t be anything of note content wise. 

For a brief explanation as to the why we need to reclaim our Hotfix space: 
We only have a limited amount of space on the Switch that we can use to Hotfix (480 mb), so occasionally we will need to reclaim that space. It resets each time we send a build to Cert, which is why we don’t run into this situation often! We weren’t sure if we would max out our limit before sending the next scheduled build to Cert (which you can learn more about in our “Next Update Post-Angels of the Zariman” announcement) , which is why we’re reclaiming some space in the next few days.

Thanks everyone!

You learn something new everyday (referring to myself)! These are the kind of explanations, and transparency I come to enjoy. It makes a lot of updates make sense, and gives people who don't know not only a good explanation, but the reasoning behind updates. Great job on optimizing file size of the game too! The whole industry needs to keep an eye, and try what you're doing.
