Nexus App

• Has been submitted for cert

• Should know within a few days when it will release, hopefully next week

• Will initially only be compatible with PC accounts, consoles will come later

 

Trading Relay

• There are new relays coming dedicated to trading

• Contains a new visual aesthetic

• While in these relays, you can enter a trading state that makes others able to enter trades freely with you

• Coming in U18

• Eventually, there may be ways to set up specific WTB/WTS desires

• Maroo sets up here

• Click
to see Rebecca explore the new Relay

 

Sortie

• The "triplet" of missions can be done once per day

• Rewards rotate in 15 day "seasons" so if you miss a day, you can still obtain rewards from the same pool the next day

• Each daily triplet is three specific missions of increasing difficulty with various limitations and penalties imposed on players

• Each sortie is associated with a specific villain, such as Nef Anyo, with a bit of lore behind the missions

• Season 1 Rewards include Dera Vandal, Karak Wraith, and a Legendary Core

• Requires MR 4 and a level 30 Warframe, can be played with up to 4 players

• Click
to see Rebecca play part of the new Sortie

Ivara (Archer Warframe)

• #1 Quiver: Tap to switch arrow types and hold to cast

• One arrow creates a bubble where it lands that causes the Archer to turn invisible within the bubble

• One arrow puts enemies to sleep

• One arrow draws enemy's attention to it

• One arrow creates ziplines that she can then walk across

• The ziplines and the invisibility bubbles are usable by allies

• #2 is the Aftertouch ability that allows her to take control of projectiles she fires, guiding them down halls. This is usable with the different arrows from her Quiver or even Tonkor

• #3 Turns Ivara invisible, forcing her into sneak mode, and allowing her to 'pickpocket' loot from living enemies

• #4 draws Artemis Bow that launches a fan of arrows with each fire

• Will be obtained from Spy Vaults in U18

• Click
to see Rebecca demo Ivara

 

Update 18

• Clan downsizing is confirmed for U18

• New Longsword stance coming in U18 (click
to see combo previews)

• Revives are free in U18 - you are given 4 free revives per mission, with more available from Arcane items

• New Login reward system is coming in U18 - confirmed to contain exclusive weapons and exclusive Primed Mods

• Mastery Rank will give increased chances for rare rewards from Login Rewards

• Sentients will appear in some capacity in U18 - perhaps not as a full faction though

• Rhino revamp will be coming in U18

Other Stuff

• Mag Prime and Volt are receiving PBR (click
to Mag)

• Simulacrum field is getting a visual revamp

• There is work being done on the new Banshee deluxe skin

• There are some ideas with how Umbra Excalibur will impact the game in terms of lore, but they were pushed back to work on Second Dream - expect Umbras to be more significant than just a simple skin

Thanks Bunny.

Although I must say that I'm pretty disappointed that they didn't go with Legolasa as the archer's name.

Probably the best devstream I've watched in a while.

 

Thanks for the rundown, AM-Bunny, as always.

 

Edit: P.S. - between the log-in reward rework and the sortie reward table, this devstream felt like one for the veterans.

Thanks again, doc. :)

 

I missed the first 30 minutes, so I'll devour your post.

Tree = New Skilltree System?

 

Hadn't thought of that... I somehow doubt they would be that metaphorical, although it could have something to do with The Focus System. The eastern aesthetic of the picture is reminiscent of the art shown in the rough draft for the new Starchart though... I really liked that.

That longsword stance...I don't have a kid, but I'd gladly sell one for it. Next week can't get here quick enough.

-INTERNALLY SCREAMING-

 

Yeahhh... I can't count how many times I did Vault Runs to get Covert Lethality. And these you won't even be able to trade for if you get frustrated and want to give up.

 

Although, there are definitely worst things... she could require Alertium.

To be honest i'd rather that than forcing myself to play Spy 2.0 which is just plain horrible for me D:

Excited for the new update but... the new warframe just looks like a waste. Who wants to pickpocket a enemy when I can just walk up to it and kill it?

So.... they confirmed Umbra will be skin not a frame? yay :D

I personally love the fact that she comes from Spy missions. They are very easy to speed run with a Limbo and ciphers.
