Does the video and images above showcase Excalibur Umbra? Or is it of "Excalibur Umbra Prime?" I'm incredibly confused even after doing a lot of google searching and reddit searching. On Rebecca's megathread, she said "The recent images showcase Excalibur Umbra, Primed Nikana, and Prime Kunai", followed by " Will we get it? - Yes". So this version of excalibur we've been seeing recently, according to Rebecca, must be "Excalibur Umbra" and that no prime version of it exist and that we are ensured we are getting the excalibur seen in this video.

This contradicts what some players are saying - some say we're getting a non-prime excalibur umbra (therefore obviously not the excalibur we've been seeing recently) - and the excalibur umbra we're seeing now is staying in China.

According to this translation (found here https://www.reddit.com/r/Warframe/comments/3dyqwx/changyou_said_that_the_chinese_version_of_umbra/)

Just to try and clarify: 圣装 (sheng zhuang) does refer to prime in wf, google translates it as raiment, but literally it means holy costume.

The post on the changyou site mentioned earlier, roughly translated in essence as follows. Any errors are mine and i apologize in advance.

"Regarding DE Rebecca's clarifications posted on the international forums, might be related to some of our players' queries/confusion about our country's exclusive Umbra Prime Excalibur(暗影圣装圣剑). Therefore, DE and us will now clarify S#&$ up.

As big sister R (lol) has mentioned, we might be releasing a series of Umbra warframes, As part of this series, we might be releasing Umbra Excalibur soon, but we'll never release our country's exclusive Umbra Prime Excalibur again (according to the international dudes in charge).

Umbra Prime Excalibur is specially designed for our country's players by DE, it's super exclusive, and after the sale period we'll never ever release it again. Please be reassured, DE and us will not renege on this.

Additionally, regarding the issue of Prime Samurai blade and Prime spiral flying blade's availability, a certain time after our promo package has ended, the international version may launch some weird ! version of it. However, in our national version, it will never again be available after the promo package, either for sale or as a drop.

Please be informed. With your support, we'll strive to keep improving."

 

 

According to the translation, Changyou's statement 100% conflicts with what Rebecca said (That the global version of warframe is getting the excalibur umbra we've been seeing in the trailers, the nikana prime, and the kunai prime)

My friend, who is fluent in Chinese, read the article posted by changyou as well and confirms there is indeed two versions of Excalibur (Umbra and Umbra Prime) and he translates that Excalibur Umbra Prime is staying in China and the global version will be receiving [the never before seen] Excalibur Umbra [non-prime]

 

Which is it DE? Are we getting this version of excalibur we're seeing now, or are we getting a never before seen fourth variant of excalibur?

Looks like Excalibur Umbra Prime, which will be exclusive to Chinese founders. Excalibur Umbra won't be.

That means Rebecca has been lying when she said the recent images we've seen were of Excalibur Umbra when it was really Excalibur Umbra Prime.

"The recent images showcase Excalibur Umbra, Primed Nikana, and Prime Kunai."

We don't know. DE has yet to release the final, official FAQ answering all of these questions that Rebecca said we would get "later in the day" on last week's Devstream. I kinda get the feeling that ChangYou and DE aren't agreeing on something here.

 

EDIT: I have bad memory. She never said "later in the day". But still, it's been a while...

She was talking about images. You linked a video. Two separate things.

Have you seen any images of Excalibur Umbra non-prime? The only images we have been seeing are this one

What images was she referring to if it were not this?

Could be as of yet unseen ones.

You mean to tell me this entire thread, as a response to images and videos as seen above, is talking about gear we've never seen before and refers "excalibur umbra, nikana prime, and kunai prime" to gear we've never seen before? As a response to the images and videos of excalibur umbra?

That's really doubtful. That's a really petty, unsupported response.

Well, we can't really judge for now. Since Changyou's statment are conflicting with the official announcement (if I may call it) on the wf forums...

I don't even know who's right or wrong anymore...

Let's hope this is the case and that they settle on something soon and make an announcement for it.

Yes we are getting this Excal and there is no confirmed Umbra Prime basically people are using google translators instead of waiting for an official statement from DE (which was already made). Also even if there is an Umbra Prime ONLY DE would know the difference not random players or founders.
