Law of Retribution Features.png

The Law of Retribution[]

  • On consoles, Law of Retribution was operating at 12 FPS, which is why it wasn't launched
  • Multicore optimization has been a huge focal point, and maximizing optimization on the consoles will also improve performance for PC players as well
  • Recent tests have been promising, should be sent for cert soon
  • Nightmare Mode is coming in 16.5, feedback so far has been "OMG too hard"

New Warframe[]

  • Yin Yang frame
  • Not coming in U16.5 - Unknown release date
  • Very ambitious, future streams will spoil more details


Parkour 2.0 Slide

Parkour 2.0[]

  • Aiming for release on U17 (very tentatively)
  • How stamina will interact with Parkour 2.0 is still up in the air - ironing out all the Parkour maneuvers first to decide how Stamina consumption will need to be adjusted
  • Stamina is being re-viewed quite severely; the ideology is that it should restrict you from constantly performing powerful melee techniques, not from running on the walls in a cool way
  • Old tilesets will be tweaked to accommodate Parkour 2.0
  • Potentially re-working the knockdown/getup animations (to allow directional rolling when you getup) and the bleedout/buttscoot animations
  • Rebecca shows off many Parkour 2.0 features including changing direction while wallrunning, braking on walls, charge jumping, zipline braking, zipline swinging, and more
  • Click HERE to see Rebecca playing a live demo of Parkour 2.0!
  • Click HERE to see pre-recorded clips of Rebecca doing neat stuff with Parkour 2.0

Genetic Foundry Upgrade[]

  • Coming U17
  • You'll have to retrieve a new module to upgrade your genetic foundry; not an automatic upgrade
  • Automatic stasis of Kubrows that are approaching death
  • There will be faster/convenient ways to get Kubrows in and out of stasis
  • Kubrow Armour in U17 (next stream there should be art to show of this)
  • New Kubrow breed: "Retriever" type; will have a very unique appearance

New Starchart[]

  • Hoping to appear in U17
  • 300 nodes are being condensed to 20 nodes
  • There may be time-based instances, such as Vor appearing temporarily, dropping different things each time
  • Similar to Alerts, but hopefully not something that punishes players for sleeping
  • There will be some removal of player choice - you will no longer be able to select whichever mission type you want, whenever you want; hopefully this will be better for the game overall
  • Re-viewing player made quests again and designing the starchart so that these will be able to fit into it; hopefully this will be the answer to players that resent the removal of choice


Other Stuff[]

  • There is a feature added to mute Warframe's sound while it's alt+tabbed
  • There will be new arrow skins similar to the Valentine's Day ones, but are not consumable
  • Nothing predicted for Archwing until U17
  • Syndicate emotes got postponed because the animation team got distracted by Parkour 2.0
  • Dark Sector is not a completely canon prequel to Warframe
  • New Cloth Syandana is not coming in U16.5, however, the Boltor Tonfas is coming
