  • Steve said that the Apostasy quest will have something to do with "how a shadow falls over an object wink wink"
  • Eidolon development held back work on the quest last year, but now they're back to working on the next cinematic quest again!
  • The team is also working on the next 'open world' area, but the current plan is to get the quest out first. They mentioned that the next open zone will be much, much larger than PoE

Lots of good things hinting to Umbra this stream

So I was right on thinking the Apostasy had something to do with Umbra when it first came out, good then, I really hope it Umbra comes with the U23 so we can end the waiting time and so DE get their freedom of having to avoid "AND UMBRA?? UMBRA WHEN?" questions every devstream live chat.

By the way what a creative way of avoiding more umbra talks today with that fake fire eh, wink jk.

This is mostly just a rant that'll probably get a lot of flak.

 

At this point Umbra is just a meme, because every time you say that it's coming, something else ends up pushing it back. Even now, on Devstream 104, you guys say that you're hard at work on the next quest, then immediately follow up with 'Most of our team is working on the next open world update.'  It's haphazard. 

 

I feel like it would just be easier and better for everyone if Umbra got pushed to the forefront of your release catalog just so that we can all move past it, I'll bet you're getting more tired seeing the daily 'UMBRA WHEN' threads than we are making them. 

 

The community has waited a lot longer for Umbra frames (and the lore/scarves)  than we have for open world content. We just got Plains of Eidolon, which in my opinion still needs a lot more work done to it before moving on and forgetting about it with a whole new area which will likely come with its own brand new set of issues. 

 

Just a rant. I may be totally out of line, the wait is just frustrating.

Umbra is coming with The Sacrifice Quest, Big cinematic quest take along to time to make. If DE worked on the Sacrifice instead of PoE we would still be waiting for The Sacrifice to come out.

Not necessarily, it would ultimately depend on how big the quest is. If it's The Second Dream/TWW sized, it'd only take about a year max, as opposed to the 2 years we've been waiting so far, during which we've had many updates.

DE has made two big cinematic quests since they announced they were bringing Umbra to our region.

So, as far as I understand, Apostasy is indeed the prologue of The Sacrifice. Also, The Sacrifice will be released before new open-world map. No details on WHEN though.

Can I ask where it was stated this was coming before the next landscape? 

Edit: nvm, found it. unfortunately most of the staff working on the next open zone makes it sound like this quest could get shelved yet again.

"Tennos, please stop being excited for umbra, its basically just a reskin"

Don't forget the lore and the scarf that comes with him. Scarf is essential for fashionframe

Umbra is just pointless. Who needs 3x of the same reskinned power creep frame with the same abilities.

 

Who uses normal frames once you have a prime?

Who's gonna use primes if umbra is better?

Who's gonna use umbra is primes are better?

It's plain lazy and a cash grab.

Umbra should not exist.

Umbra doesn't have the same stats as excalibur prime.

 

To the OP, pretty sure the Devstream said that from now on they're focusing on the sacrifice.

If you don't own the prime, umbra is the only alternative you have.

Why not make sure umbra has similar stats to prime, or buff the prime so as to not step on founders' toes?

I'd get umbra only to use its body main skin on my prime (hopefully comes with the scarf)

It's not a cash grab if it's supposed to be pseudo prime for a warframe most people don't have the prime of

If it's an excuse to serve up more lore and a new cinematic quest then I'm all for it.

Either way the better stay frame will used, the the weaker frame shelved.

Meh umbra, it can take all year for i care for it to show up. I'm actually disappointed it is a quest and not a login thing since the Login option would make it drag out even more.
