This picture of Ballas looks like a reflection of Umbra..down to the flowing scarf, gold accents and weapon on his hip.  Maybe it's his personal guard and you have to beat him down using some evolved tactic that only Ballas understands in order to be worthy of his blueprint.

that is a new variation, origionaly we discussed it could be a royal guard variation of stalker so , makes as much sense as anything

I'm thinking that Ballas and the Unum tower will play a large role in the Umbra quest.

Ballas because, well, they did recently unveil concept art for him at TennoCon which at least entertains the possibility that he is still alive.

And I think that Umbra will take place within the tower simply because the plains is DE's newest beauty and it'd be a wasted opportunity not to make more content take place there.

its possible , some think cetus /unum/tower/ectwill play a role, some think it wont , wont know till it drops

That also brings to question, “Why the Cetus Tower and not the Moon?” I think the Umbra quest will have to do with both.

well the unum resides there maybe there is a plot

maybe the tower can get light from the moon for transference? 

possible, we know from the login rewards sigils there was some eclipse event  , that involves moon, transferemce, void gates ect

I get the feeling that once the launcher finishes updating to “The Sacrifice” and you get straight to your Liset after logging in, I can hear that inbox transmission from the Lotus- “Tenno, I’m picking up some strange disturbance from the tower in Cetus. Go investigate.” And you reach the top of the tower and meet a disheveled Ballas, torn apart by millenia of kuva consumption, sitting in an unkempt golden throne, with Excalibur Umbra at his side, ready for command. 

I firmly believe that not only will The Sacrifice bring us our beloved Excalibur Umbra, but it will also be the reveal of Ballas, creator of the warframes. He has locked himself away in the tower forever, and brought with him a batch of warframes to protect him- warframes that can think without an operator...

possible , i have a feeling  is something we wont expect

This reminds me of the moment when the Stalker was interrupted by the operator's warframe without their control.

Will we be able to run around as the operator and have our warframe follow us as an actual NPC? That would be something I'd really like to see.

I think mako should get a preview and test of umbra before he’s released, as a accomplishment award for keeping this thread going and not going crazy during the wait lol. Like how the guy who built 100 frost got to see his deluxe skin before release.

at this point we should just hope this prompts de to actually focus on umbra for once and give it to us instead of keeping it in a perpetual stream of delays.

I hope they will stop dodging it on devstreams, they are still doing it even though POE is out and umbra should be the next update

they aren't dodging they just don't have anything to say, two years of delays and the umbra update is still just an early wip. hopefully though it is the next update like de suggested, but then it was supposed to be the next big update after tww as well, so who knows. it was also said in the last devstream overview the next big update is corpus, so no idea how i should feel about that.

its ...conflicting

repeatedly this content is pushed to the side for some new content, the new content is to hopefully pave the way so the umbra content is cannon and flows into the main scheme /plan of warframe

i hope cetus or poe at least is a factor now in the sacrifice,  to at least give it some...foundation for why it had to come first 

ive asked repeatedly on multiple dev streams for them to simply answer yes/no or TBD/or ?? on some basic topics. 

all i can hope is they have pulled or at least listened or looked at it and internalized it to be talked on on another day

frankly i think it's just them being easily distracted that keeps umbra from being a priority, they clearly don't care a great deal about it, just the community, so they jump at any distraction they find more interesting to occupy their time instead.

i doubt cetus was on their mind two years ago and they have been planning umbra around it for all that time. fitting cetus into it now that it has arrived though probably just sets the project back further, since they have to redesign whatever the plan is to have the new addition fit.

But it's in 2018, that's for sure, almost here.

 

October 2015 - "We plan on releasing it this year."

April 2016 - "He's coming sort of soon, he's part of a big thing."

January 2017 - "It's definitely on the agenda for this year."

November 2017 - "I think we can commit Umbra to being next year."

Also November 2017 - "Next big update is Corpus based."


Lesson to learn: stop listening to everything they say on the subject. No, my intention is not to dev bash at all, I'll reword if necessary however. They have very clearly displayed apathy towards the frame in the past, and they have no reason to suddenly care about him. I feel saying, "...2018, that's for sure" is harmful to the (already) incredibly dwindled hope of his release.

The thing most important to believe from all of this is that maybe one day the global build will gain access to Excalibur Umbra. And as stated above, never count on DE's vague statements on the topic to be anything more than guesses, even if it's, "He's coming within the decade."

Regarding the Sacrifice teaser, it was, in my opinion (and I'm positive I'm not the only who believes this) made quickly as a crowd pleaser and only a crowd pleaser. The assets used have likely been put aside as they're now distracted with the next landscape, which I guarantee will come out before the quest. Again, I'm not trying to dev bash or appear as a strong cynic of sorts, these are just my honest thoughts (those of which I've been repeating for too long now, sadly). And no disrespect to yourself either, I hope this didn't sound hostile.

Well, usually we get 2 big updates under global number - .0 and .5 so it's possible 22.5 is for Corpus and 23.0 is for Sacrifice.

i'm aware, the point is the next big one is supposed to be corpus still. maybe they don't count .5 but i'm not sure about that, i also got the feel they expected umbra to be its own major update from the way they built up the quest. (made it sound in the same area as tww and tsd but i guess i could see that being downgraded)
