[PC Status Thread] Update 19.5: The Glast Gambit

Recommended Posts

Happy Tuesday Wednesday, Tenno! 

Update: 
Releasing The Glast Gambit is too much of a gamble tonight. We're going aim for an earlier deploy tomorrow (December 22nd) so we can monitor and hotfix as needed. Thanks for your patience, Tenno!

In preparation for the upcoming “The Glast Gambit” 19.5 Update, we will be releasing a preload update that contains all the fixes and changes tonight (Tuesday, December 20th). We’re calling this a “preload” as its purpose serves to prepare for, and better manage, the amount of content coming in 19.5. We also want to assure, to the best of our ability, that the build is stable before release and tackle any major bugs beforehand. Tonight’s preload will essentially give us a good footing to deliver you Nidus, the Index Quest, and much more. 

So what should you expect? The preload will be treated and deployed as any other update, with the exception that the new items and content from The Glast Gambit will not be available until we’ve had time to polish and verify that everything from the preload is working smoothly. You can expect Red Text to countdown as usual, and you’ll be required to restart your Warframe client to receive the update. 

Due to time constraints and continuing work, update notes will not be posted with the preload, but expect them later tonight as we finish them. 

We are very excited to bring you Update 19.5: “The Glast Gambit” later this week, and we thank you for your patience and understanding as we prepare for its arrival.


Edit: Update notes here!

Sounds like a good idea, I remember the old days when major updates would nearly break the game. I'm looking forward to seeing if this makes it more stable!

Seems reasonable! Here's to hoping that this change in implementation makes things even more smooth!

so no nidus?

 

Not yet, no. That's kinda the point. They're trying to iron-out as many bugs as possible BEFORE releasing the new stuff. They're just giving us the chance to download the bulk of it beforehand.

Interesting concept with the 'pre-activation' thing. Could work wonders for virtually everything, when refined to Radiant quality.

What [DE]Danielle means is that they're integrating the update contents they have ready into the live build so they can both A: check if it's stable and B: size down the actual update when it goes live, when everything they wanted to put in it is in it.

sweet, can't wait for nidus to come out. have been looking forward to an infested frame since u7 or so back when i suggested it and a lot of ppl shot the idea down.

7x3=19 [It appears that actually isn't the case, as 7+7=14, meaning this math is broken and needs adaptation, but details are missing]. Coincidence?

Added response to 2 Tenno. Math is bugged right now, pending hotfix.

Hey Danielle, any pre-requisites we should know about so we can jump straight into the Glast Gambit quest?

Also, glad to see we're getting the Patch notes today. I need to read it all about it *now*

I am super hyped about finally being able to clean my ship.

If my memory of the last devstream is correct... You open the door, but BARELY clean the door.

Man, if this preload is successful, I hope you guys will do more for future patches. Especially for major updates.

Huh, this is interesting. Hope it's a sort of safe approach to major updates from here on out if it goes well this week.
