Warframe’s Plains of Eidolon expansion launches open-world ‘landscapes’ today

It’s been a thrill, I think you’ll agree, to watch over the last couple of years as Digital Extremes‘ Warframe defied the rule that most online games in our purview shrink after launch. The game has only gotten bigger, as it does again today with the launch of its Plains of Eidolon expansion. Today’s launch is for PC, mind you; consoles can expect it in November. Oh, and it’s free. And as the DE team told us back at Tennocon this past summer, MMORPG players in particular should pay attention to this patch, as the addition of open-world landscapes, interactive NPCs, a “gripping” story, a diurnal cycle, and new mission types, all with an emphasis on exploration, definitely push the game over into more MMO-like territory.

“Plains of Eidolon is the first-of-its kind Landscape for Warframe. The Open Zone design offers kilometers of colorful rolling hills and pastures, lively lakes and rivers, active mines and caves, all during a continual diurnal/nocturnal cycle for Tenno to soak up and enjoy. As many as 50 players can converge on the makeshift basecamp of Cetus, where the race of the Ostrons offer missions and challenges, and new weapons, armor and items to craft and customize to a degree never before realized in Warframe. During the relative safety of day, whether on foot or soaring through the air (using the revamped Sky Archwing), Tenno will clash with new and old Grineer, partake in mini-games such as spearfishing and mining, and partner up with as many as three others to explore the Plains. At night, danger surfaces from the waters and haunts the storied grounds. Only the bravest and best equipped teams will venture forth in their crash-course hunt for the massive Eidolon, a towering monstrosity lured to consciousness in search of something dangerous and mysterious.”

Frontier Expo 2017: Elite Dangerous goes ‘Beyond’ with big plans for 2018

When I spoke to Elite Dangerous’ devs at this year’s Frontier Expo 2017, the company’s first fan expo, they admitted that communication went dark for a time. But it wasn’t for any worry-worthy reason: No, it was because the devs were preparing for Beyond, the big update road map for 2018 that was revealed on stage at the con. And what a reveal it was! The crowd was quite excited about the announced features spanning four updates throughout the year, including squadrons, fleet carrier ships, a codex, new ships, improved mining, revamped planetary graphics, and more. As Lead Designer Sandro Sammarco said, “Elite is an ongoing project. It’s not finishing any time soon.”

Along with  the big news reveal, I also spoke with Chief Creative Officer Jonny Watts and Producer Adam Woods about these updates that focus on three areas — core game, narrative, and new features. This is what I learned.

World of Warcraft’s Ion Hazzikostas talks randomness and Legendaries

There’s been another live community Q&A session with World of Warcraft director Ion Hazzikostas, and if you’re in the “highly frustrated” crowd of fans, the answers received are not going to mollify you. Flying in Argus? No. Randomness? Yes, that’s all good, there’s always been randomness in RPGs. Can we get world bosses more frequently? No.

On the other hand, if you’re pleased as punch with the current state of the game, you’ll probably be happy about minor quality-of-life bumps like the promise to continue using new Druid forms in future expansions or the plans for more realm connections. So take that as you will and adjust your expectations accordingly.

Meanwhile, there’s a strong hint that an Offline mode is coming to Battle.net, since an “appear offline” option has been added to the app in its most recent beta version. So if you’d like to avoid all notice from others, that’s going to be a good thing.
