Devstream #90 Overview

Recommended Posts

bnNUVXM.jpg

Our resident web-god is off enjoying her long weekend, so this week's Overview will be posted on the forum today so you can enjoy it over your long weekend as well! We will be back on the Blog for Devstream 91.

---

Long time no see, Tenno! It’s been a while since we had a Devstream, but the team sure made it worth the wait. Episode 90 was jam-packed with content, so keep on reading to get all the dirt on the next Warframe, new enemies, a coming feature and more! 

Forgot what the Devs sound like? You can see (and hear) all their goofs and gaffs in the full stream here:

Housekeeping

  • We’ll be revealing more TennoCon details later this month, don’t forget to buy your Digital Pack or Physical Ticket here!
  • Don’t miss the usual Gift of the Lotus Alert after the stream, but also a second Gift of the Lotus Alert designed by our Design Council!
  • Leap of the Lotus is live! Get your Lepus Headgear, Easter Color Palette, and Double Credits all weekend long.
  • Octavia’s Anthem has been submitted to Cert! 

The Thirty-third Warframe

Our thirty-third Warframe is coming. Instead of traditional concept art, we decided to do something a little different. The above piece was drawn by the renowned community artist, Kevin Glint!

While currently nameless, we can tell you that he is a support frame that relies on high precision shooting. He is always ready to protect his squad, and sacrifice for them if necessary.

Like with Titania, Nidus, and Octavia, “Bobo” (as Pablo and Rebecca have so called him) is coming with another Syndicate-linked Quest. In it you will learn more about Red Veil, its Deacons, and perhaps some more Warframe lore.

Here is an in-game Render:

Ambulas

We spoke about the Ambulas Rework in Devstream 87, but now we have even more details to share! The new boss fight will debut in a Clan Event soon, so be sure to get your Clan sorted in the next few weeks/months.

This new battle includes phases, a timer, and a fail-state – but no invulnerability phases! Instead of one solitary enemy to fight, players will need to take on multiple waves of Ambulases to take down the looming threat in the sky. Your mission is not to defeat the Ambulas, but to hack them in order to sabotage the Corpus mothership. If the Corpus Drop Ship picks up 5 unhacked Ambulases, then it’s game over!

See the full segment here.

Corpus Spider Enemies

The Corpus is expanding yet again! We are introducing a new enemy type with new features to keep the gameplay fresh. Like with the Moas and Ospreys, there are different variants of this arachnoid that come in all different sizes and colours!

New Grineer Enemy

The Grineer are getting new recruits as well! This piece was concepted by Keith Thompson, an artist who designed some of the original characters in-game, including Loki, the Lotus and more.

We are working with him more this year and are so excited to make his vision a reality in-game.

Multi-wielding

If you can’t pick between your secondary and your melee weapon – and quick melee isn’t doing it for you – then you should be excited to hear of a new equip state coming to Warframe!

Above is a super basic prototype – a lot of the animations and features are still being worked on – but the premise is simple: you will be able to have a secondary weapon in one hand, and a blade or Glaive in the other. 

Spoiler

Oberon Rework

Yes – Oberon is getting a rework! His powers aren’t necessarily changing; instead, Scott is looking at his existing abilities and working to make them more synergistic and scalable. He will also be given a new Passive.

We won’t be giving any more details until it is ready to demo.

Other Warframe Changes

  • Limbo: His Cataclysm is being looked at. Stay tuned for a detailed post on what changes to expect.
  • Chroma: We’re aware of the Vex Armour bug and are working on a fix. It’s quite complicated, but we want it get it working properly ASAP!
  • Nyx: Discussion has been going on in regards to the Assimilate change. A possible side-grade might be coming instead of a direct reversal of recent changes.

iam8bit 
If you haven’t heard, we’re collaborating with iam8bit to produce some exclusive Warframe merch! On top of the amazing 2x LP and enamel pins that are available, they have created an incredible collection of art prints for us. All 32 Warframe were revealed on our Instagram page, but below are the 3 NPCs, which are only available if you purchase the whole set. Don't forget, these art prints are only available for purchase on the iam8bit site until April 23!

Learn more about our partnership here.

Immortal Skins
Hydroid and Zephyr are the next in line to get Immortal Skins!

Zephyr’s skin will let you color the previously un-tintable black sections.

New Machete Stance

Earth Remaster

This remaster has been shown many times before, but it is just too beautiful to not share again.
In the video below, keep an eye out for new foliage. There might be some new lifeforms skittering and flapping around (coughcoughratsandvultures) but there’s no guarantee that they’ll be released with this remaster.

Other Tidbits:

  • We’re looking at giving Heavy Attacks some love, but we’re still trying to figure out how to do that.
  • No word yet on when the Tenno Shotgun revealed in past Devstreams is coming. 
  • Melee Rivens are coming, we promise!
  • Wall Run might make a comeback if we can smooth out some technical issues.
  • Relay Reconstruction is coming over the next 2 – 3 months, starting hopefully at the end of May.
  • Stay tuned for Nidus Augments.
  • We are looking at the Focus system and ways to expand it. 
  • Zephyr is also in line for a rework.
  • TennoGen Round 8 was announced. See the full list of accepted items here.

The Remote Observer, Vol 2.5
Sometimes our update notes turn out to be update novellas, which means a lot of the changes our team works hard on can get overlooked! With the Remote Observer, we take a look back at what hidden gems came in our releases during the week, so you don’t have to.

Below is highlights from this week’s PC updates. Consoles didn’t have any releases in lieu of getting Update 20 to Cert, so expect a large section next week!

UI Changes

  • Menu Scale has been added under Options > Interface (was previously HUD).
  • ‘Full’ Menu Scale scales to match your resolution.
  • ‘Legacy’ Menu Scale is similar to pre-U20, except diegetic screens (Mods, Foundry, etc) now scale as well. You will only see the difference in resolutions larger than 1080p.
  • ‘Custom’ Menu Scale is set and determined by you.

In-Mission:

  • Locked doors will now appear as ‘off’ (no color) to mitigate any confusion for colorblind players.

Captura

  • Fixed Captura conflicting with certain Warframe Abilities. Now you can use Mesa's Peacemaker (or other affected abilities) and then toggle the camera! 

For a look at what changes came in the past month, check out Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the Remote Observer.

Yes!!! Hopefully a good change, Limbombers remove all fun and challenge from missions. Super excited for Darth Plagius frame.

So the next enemy is a grineer water filled plastic bean bag chair with a dead guy inside?

 

Let me guess, the only way to defeat it is to sit on it…

 

also the forums are glitchy today, just post this and another blank post

Relay reconstruction = awesome.

Focus revisited?  I'll believe it when I see it.

Thank you for this Taylor!


As for the Oberon rework or should I even say it is? To me, I think this is more of a buff than a rework, his abilities aren't changing so I'm a little disappointed in that (Hallowed Ground seriously needs to be changed, but lets just hope Scott makes it amazing!). Nevertheless, at least Broberon is being looked at and is getting synergy and scaleability, that's more than enough for me. :satisfied:

Something I'd love with Focus, let us take off lenses. I don't even care if we get them back, but I hate having to worry about my gear with lenses slowing down the leveling up off other items.

So wait... Oberon is getting a new passive, while my man Chroma is being ignored, yet again... Give the guy an actual passive already (seriously, unless his passive is that he can change energy color in mission, it sucks).

To be fair, Oberon's current passive tends to interfere with certain Grineer missions. Not exactly ideal having to take an extra 10 minutes while the squad waits for a chance to kill the mutant cats. Which is frustrating because he was one of my go-to frames, but now I can't use him without annoying the squad.

You need to use the embed code (found in the "more" share options on the Twitch Clip page). Simply copy + paste that into your post using Source mode in the editor.

Not exactly removing challenge, but disrupting the mission. One of the reasons why I don't give my cataclysm max range.
