Chinese version of Warframe: differences between global version and China's

  • Update speed similar to consoles (delayed release from Global PC version)
  • (fluff) "Warframe is virtual viagra"
  • "Starcraft Armor" is NOT a thing (darn you Google Translate!)
  • Content same as the global version, maybe a few exclusives

Update 16 on consoles?

  • Should be submitted this week!

When will Sentients appear?

  • U17, "Tomb of the Sentients"

Eclipse Narta? Emotes?

  • We want a batch done before launching

Warframe PlayStation Theme?

  • Made! Needs to be finalized! "One day soon!"

Gore nerfed after M rating?

  • Gore system is very detailed; lots of content that isn't updated with new enemies
  • Ragdoll, Damage 2.0 may sometimes override gore system
  • Will go back and add more gore!

Selectable Weapon Holsters?

  • All placements are done by hand per Warframe
  • Would take a long time to implement, but it sounds awesome!
    • Experiment: multi-attach points set per frame
  • Working on a new weapon type...

Tenno Weapon Sets (Soma). Lore or just stylish?

  • It was just stylish... but there could be Lore too!
  • More in the pipeline: Boltor Tonfas! "So Metal!"

Ultimate goal for quest system? Overall story timeline?

    • U16.5?

How long does PBR update take?

  • Video comparison
    • A few days, sometimes weeks. Process is faster now

PBR or cloth physics?

  • PBR is gradual, cloth physics coming with new Syandana this week!

Vermillion Storm stance release?

  • Few more attacks working. U16.5 hopefully


  • We will use it, but there will still be DX9 support

Syndicate thoughts?

  • Syndicates, PvP have been successes
  • Dark Sector changes still in-progress

Is Teshin a Tenno?

  • Not Tenno! He's guy with cool hat!
    • (Jokes) Space Mom & Dad! "Is Teshin my ex?" -Lotus

Next Raid/Trial?

  • Nightmare ver. of current Trial (U16.5)
  • New Trial (U17)
  • Tentative release dates!

Parkour 2.0?

  • Will affect (not remove) coptering!
    • Anything mobility-related up to change (abilities, mods, stamina drain)
    • Roping in crazy fling distances, more balance for all movement

Tyl Regor rework?

  • Mesh/Animations!
    • Giant Gorilla Hands stance, Sword & Shield stance

Manic scarier than Stalker - rework?

  • Yes

What's next to buff?

  • Shotguns, Snipers, Daggers, Excal need looks
  • Generally look over buffs every large update

Reworking Excal?

  • Initial goal was Frost, but there was more Excal feedback
  • We will re-do ability animations & some abilities too!
    • Slash Dash now attacks enemies within a line (like Bladestorm but cone). Can cancel with melee
    • Radial Blind use on move, open for finishers
    • New Excal energy sword
    • Super Jump removed. Parkour 2.0 will make it obsolete
    • Radial Javelin as third ability, adjustments vs. Blind
    • Ult based on Forum suggestions: draw Energy Sword, slashes create waves
  • Another Excal helmet

ETA on Mios Fan weapons?

  • No - Still working!
