UPDATE 30.5: SISTERS OF PARVOS
As you can see in the list above, our next major update has a lot in store! We’ll go through each item point by point and show you what was revealed on-stream.
YARELI, THE NEW WARFRAME!
Our next Warframe’s aesthetic might be familiar to you if you are a Warframe Fanart connoisseur. Lovely Yareli was designed by Matias Tapia, known for their Magical Girl Warframe series.
We’ll do a full kit reveal in our May Devstream, but here’s what Pablo has to say about her design and intentions thus-far:
THE SISTERS OF PARVOS
You may know them as the Queenpins or Corpus Liches -- but their final in-lore name is revealed! These new Corpus foes bring an elevated threat, and 9 new weapons, including variants of the Arca Plasmor and Flux Rifle.
If you are familiar with the Kuva Lich system, these Sisters will bring their own unique twist to the Lich-style fights with the help of their randomized hounds. As with Kuva Liches, the appearance of these Hounds will be randomized with each Sister of Parvos generated. The head of the progenitor Warframe will be carried around by them, on a platter no less!
Geoff also brought with him some animations of the assassination takedown for these new enemies, as well as some of their custom attack animations:
NEW VOID STORM REWARDS
In-theme with the new weapons coming with the Sisters of Parvos, Void Storms will also be receiving some refreshed rewards as well. The exact details on their acquisition will come next Devstream, but for the meantime, enjoy the pure anime aesthetic of these briefcase melee weapons:
KUVA LICH IMPROVEMENTS AND NEW WEAPONS
General Lich grind reduction and a wild card system are in the works as well, to be detailed more in our next Devstream! We’re sorry we don’t have more to share, but we’re excited to confirm that improvements are coming!
Our Liches will not be forgotten in the wake of our new Sisters either -- with Update 30.5, you can expect 3 new Kuva weapons: Kuva Hek, Kuva Grattler, and Kuva Zarr.
EMBER DELUXE #2
Designed by Debby Sheen, she is finally releasing and our bodies are so ready:
STEEL PATH ADDITIONS
Teshin, Daddy Dax himself, is getting some store updates! Soon, you’ll be able to trade your Steel Essence for:
- - Teshin Noggle
- - Shotgun Weapon Recoil Mod
- - Cadus Staff
- - Various “In-Action” Warframe Glyphs
- - Riven Cypher (one a week) -- allowing you to bypass the unveil challenge! If you can’t nail headshots during your aim glide, or wall latch to save your life, this one’s for you!
SYNDICATE ARMOR & EMOTES
We’re expanding our Syndicate offerings -- it’s been a minute since we’ve added anything but Augments to these storefronts, so save up your medallions if this future content is up your alley.
You’ll be able to emulate your favourite Railjack crew members with these new tradeable emotes. Prices are still placeholder, so don’t fret!
Syndicate Armor Pieces
Additionally, each Syndicate will be releasing their own themed armor set. Here is a brief preview of them, but if you’d like to see them all showcased, you can see for yourself on YouTube at this video timestamp.
OTHER CONTENT MENTIONED
Four new Augments are in the works! Possibly for the Sisters of Parvos, if not before -- we’re not ready to commit to a date just yet. As always, values are subject to change.
Exilus. Adds a 4th entry to reservoirs that drops all three at once, at a greater cost.
Clear status and gain status immunity for 2 sec per victim in his stomach.
Exilus: Press and hold to create a dispensary that can revive sentinels, with a 60 second cooldown.
Gain bonus secondary damage (up to 500%) for each enemy hit.
WRECKAGE QUALITY OF LIFE
Wreckage limits as they currently stand can impact the flow of Railjack missions -- if you are one to play long sessions of Railjack missions in a row, you might have experienced this yourself. To prevent the interruption of having to scrap Wreckage every few missions, Wreckage is changing in a fundamental way:
All Wreckage of the same type (ex: Zekti MKIII Engines) will exist in one pool, without taking up Scrap Wreckage slots. If you wish to use that Wreckage for Repairs, Fusion, etc., you will be able to “Identify” the Wreckage to move it from that pool, taking up a Scrap Wreckage slot. The unique characteristics of that Wreckage will be revealed upon Identification.
This way you can continue to gather these resources in the background as you play, and choose how to use them once you’re back in your Dry Dock.
If this explanation isn’t clear, below is a clip that shows this process more in action. As you can see, much of this process is still placeholder, so you can expect a more detailed write-up of the process upon release. Overall, we hope our intention to streamline this system is clear!
REVENANT DELUXE SKIN
While Ember is slated for the Sisters of Parvos, Revenant’s deluxe is in the work -- and Geoff brought work-in-progress receipts to share!
CALL OF THE TEMPESTARII REFLECTIONS
It’s crazy to think the Call of the Tempestarii Iteration was only earlier this month, but the team has been gathering feedback and iterating since then. Steve specifically acknowledged that Void Storms missed the mark a bit, but we hope our (aforementioned) reward expansion and changes to the overall Void Storm FX will help with that!
He also mentioned some complexity issues that are still ongoing -- if your Railjack experience is still a little rocky, know we are still working on it in a technical capacity as well.
NEW HARROW ALT HELMET
- - Steve spoke about some Leverian Soul Searching. At this time, our narrative focus is on Quest work.
- - Co-op friendly quests are a dream but something that greatly increases the technical difficulty of a quest. Much of what we’re working on currently deals with a personal tone too, which is difficult to navigate for co-op play. With that said, there is an interest in injecting more narrative to the co-op experience, similar to what we did with Scarlet Spear. Time will only tell!
- - Plague Star and the Ghoul Saw will be released when Sheldon and Rebecca finally learn to get along. In all seriousness, it is a question and request we are aware of, but do not have concrete details at this time.
Join us on April 30th at 2 p.m ET for a first look at what’s next for Warframe: Update 30.5!
Viewers of this Devstream will be the first to meet our next Warframe and find out the name of Update 30.5 and what it entails!
