(May contain The Second Dream spoilers)
As a fair warning to all Tenno this edition of Devstream Overview may contain some minor spoilers for PC's latest Update. Anyone looking to avoid spoilers or discussion on The Second Dream may want to avoid this overview until you've experienced Warframe's latest Quest firsthand.
Most of our Developer Livestreams are focused on what's ahead, but with so much content packed into our latest PC Update we couldn't help but stop and reflect on how far Warframe has come in 2015. If you missed the final Devstream of the year and want a chance to see all the action as it happened live be sure to check out all the action on YouTube here.
The Second Dream - Ongoing Development
We understand that many new features have been added that players may be unsure how to approach. We encourage everyone to take your time with the new System and explore it as much as you would like. There definitely will be an opportunity for players to respect their choices as we continue to upgrade and revamp the system.
A few other points to note:
- Everyone's love for Update 18 has truly inspired us…but it's also put tremendous stress on our servers! Warframe server (and Forum) improvements are soon to come.
- Letting players replay The Second Dream quest is important, and we'll be working on implementing such a feature.
The Second Dream Soundtrack
One of the most exciting reveals in The Second Dream's Quest was the Update's latest audio track by Keith Power. A touching melody that plays on the relationship between the Tenno and Lotus, we wanted everyone to know that what players heard during The Second Dream was only a small portion of what's to come.
