Devstream #69 Overview


Recommended Posts


Oberon Deluxe Skin
• Inspired by forest themes, Pan's Laberynth-esque
• Coming soon, essentially finished


• Some preliminary event information released


Mag Revamp
• Will be affecting all of Mag's powers
• Scott has a plan, but didn't divulge details

Update 18.5
• Will be releasing some time in March
• All of Steve's lighting and texture updates are going into 18.5
• Expect a large download - approximately 3 GB
• There will be a lot of chat upgrades  coming 
•  The randomize loadout feature is coming


Moon Expansion
• New mission types will be added to the moon tileset in Update 18.5
• This will include Moon Spy mission
• Moon Spy missions will present a new level of Spy difficulty and encourage a new method of thinking in Warframe
• Similar to how the entire moon was pulled from The Void during The Second Dream, the Spy vaults will also be able to transition between pre and post Void collapse
• This essentially means that every Spy vault has two completely different versions with different aesthetics
• The Void collapse is triggered by players, so they will have conrol over which approach they take


Dark Sector
• Was on hold for a long time, but recently there's been some thought about how Dark Sector can be re-vitalized
• Will address the 'click races' and other problems that plagued the old Dark Sectors
• There will be somewhat less focus on competition and more focus on cooperation
• Will still be focused on Clan and Alliance activity
• Individual Clans within an Alliance will be able to specialize
• There will be a focus on exploration of the new Starmap

• Approximately 5 head and tail variations determined by breed traits
• Will receive greatly improved AI (Kubrow AI will also be updated accordingly)
• Click HERE to see some Kavat animations


New Warframe: Mummy Warframe
• Releasing in Upadate 18.5
• Will be obtained via Quest, focused on Phobos
• Male Warframe
• Has no shields at all, very large health pool to compensate
• Has powers that steal health from enemies, increase armour, and summon minions
• His ult uses his health as fuel
• Has a unique bleedout animation involving his sarcophagus
• Many of his powers are sand-themed


Custom Holster Position
• There will be multiple holster positions available for melee weapons
• There was placement shown for: usual back placement and one for each hip
• In addition to the three locations, there may be sliders that players can manipulate to fine-tune the position to ensure good placement
• The new holster positions also come with new drawing and sheathing animations
• It's unclear at this point if this will only apply to melee weapons, or if guns are included


Other Stuff
• In a coming update, you will no longer lose progress if you complete a mission during a hotfix
• In a coming update, if a client is disconnected, they will be able to re-join and retain any loot from before the d/c
• There is a Conclave Syandana in development
• There is going to be some updates coming to Spira Prime's stats to make it comparable to the vanilla version
• Sheev will return via Sortie Reward - possibly next season
• One of the Cinematic Quests for this year will involve the Grineer Queens
• There will probably be cinematic for future Prime Warframes like Saryn's (possibly past Primes as well)
• After Update 18.5 launches, there will probably be changes to Focus Powers

There is a god.


As somebody who wasn't able to tune in, thanks for this. Great overview. Monarch Butterfly Oberon is beautiful as hecka.

I feel as though this Mummy warframe should have a prime variant almost immediately. An Egyptian warframe has so much opportunity for a great prime design.

Ha, good point. He shouldn't be too challenging from a design perspective. 

Additionally, there's the ongoing problem of Quest Warframes only being obtainable once. If they're sold, you have no option to obtain them again other than a market purchase.

Having the Prime variant available would at least allow you another avenue to obtain the Warframe after you've completed the Quest.

PLEASE DE, do not mess with Zenurik's Energy Overflow.  It's been a game changer for me!

It's certainly a game-changer. Energy Overflow and Shadow Step really standout, and things that stand out have a tendency of getting hammered down. I'd advise preparing for the worst.

Even though I primarily use Naramon, and have been abusing Shadow Step as much as anyone, I really hope it gets some large adjustments. I dislike how it caters to such a specific, niche playstyle. Not only does it require use of melee weapons, but crit-focused ones at that. If you do use crit-based melee weapons, suddenly it's incredibly powerful... I've been taking my unranked Warframes into T4 Survival and soloing it to 1 hour+ to rank them up. I don't like how Shadow Step is all-or-nothing like that.
