The War Within: Less wait, more update!


Recommended Posts

Hello my lovely Tenno. How are you? Genji, amirite?

TL;DR
I’m here to share some news on your next major update. We’re going to split up the huge mega update into chunks. Less wait, more update!

WHY CHUNKS, WHY?
We’ve aimed very high for this War Within quest and its related systems, tying the release of awesome new features into a codependent web of code and content. One feature slipping meant they all got held back. One script tweak meant yet-another-delay for everything else awesome we’ve been building for you.

This month we decided we should unravel the web. Instead of all-or-nothing mega-updates we’re going to be staging our major features into successive releases, culminating in the mind-blowing, life-altering, existential crisis that is the War Within cinematic quest. This approach harkens a return to the exciting evolution you’ve come to expect from us. It gives breathing room for awesome content that otherwise gets lost in the noise of mega-updates. By chunking up these features I hope to make the lives of our incredible content creators a little bit easier.

RELEASE PLAN (Fingers crossed behind my back)

Part I: Lunaro
Part one will be called LUNARO. This team sport promises to reinvigorate the Conclave for those Tenno that didn’t have a taste for Tenno blood. We are releasing Lunaro later this week on PC! 

Part II: Specters of the Rail
Part two will be called SPECTERS OF THE RAIL. This is the Solar Map 3.0 update and we’re planning for release just a couple weeks after Lunaro. It’s why I wake up in a cold sweat most nights. This update contains a redesigned navigation system, a redesign of the Void/Key system (your collection still matters, earning wll be a bit different but there is no 'content lock out'), Kavats and a few interesting surprises for old and new Tenno alike. Pray for me.

Part III: War Within
Part three will be called WAR WITHIN. This update will be dropped in and around TennoCon and contain our next ambitious cinematic quest. We’re excited for Tenno to face up against the Grineer Queens, learning more of their mysterious past… but be warned: as in the Second Dream, we intend to grow and alter the game mechanics in surprising ways with War Within. We want to surprise and delight you.
THANKS FOR READING

If you’re one of our beloved console Tenno, our hope is this this staging will also see new features making it your way sooner and with the quality benefits of iteration we do with our PC Tenno.

I’m hoping you will find some unique fun in Lunaro, it turned out great and I can’t wait to add more to it based on your feedback and passion as we continue, together, our crazy gaming experiment known as Warframe :).

 

Ninja Edit: Specters update is also coming with some new tech: an all new immersive sound occlusion system, new graphics quality options (like temporal AA) and an experimental 'Tenno crowd-sourced' system for generous Tenno to add dedicated conclave servers to the system.
