Retro shooter Keystone rebrands as The Amazing Eternals ahead of founder beta

Remember back in 2015 when a gamer sneaked into Digital Extremes’ headquarters and wandered around for a day, tricking the unassuming Canadian devs into spilling the beans on a top-secret “FPS with cards” game they were working on? Last spring, we found out that game was a real thing, a retro-pulp shooter/card game hybrid called Keystone.

Today, however, we’re finding out that the “Keystone” title has been scrapped in favor of a new one: The Amazing Eternals. The Warframe dev asserts now that Keystone was just a codename for the closed alpha, which is drawing to a close and will soon be replaced with a closed beta that you too can pay to play.

“Building from its Closed Alpha test with thousands of enthusiastic new players, free-to-play Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes will launch the Founders Program for The Amazing Eternals (formerly codenamed Keystone) Tuesday, August 29. Using the community-driven model that helped grow Warframe to great success, The Amazing Eternals Founders Program rewards early adopters with direct development team collaboration, exclusive in-game gear, instant access to the Closed Beta, and more. Join the Multiverse by signing up free for a chance to get into The Amazing Eternals Closed Beta or enter the game instantly with the Founders Program launch on Tuesday, August 29!”

TennoCon 2017: Celebrating Warframe’s con from start to Umbra

Warframe’s second annual fan convention has ended, and now it’s time to reflect back on a very fun and full day. I wondered how Digital Extremes would top last year’s inaugural TennoCon — I remember the cheers that burst out for the new Warframe announcements in 2016, but that paled to the reaction at this year’s Tenno Live.

Viewers at home didn’t get to see and hear the initial reaction to the big Plains of Eidolon announcement — it was silence. Not silence because it wasn’t impressive but silence because the audience was surprised and in total disbelief; Game Director Steve Sinclair shared that this was the first content ever to not be leaked! Whispers of “No way,” “and “It couldn’t be,” bubbled up, and the tension and awe grew palpably as Live Operations and Community Producer Rebecca Ford maneuvered through the new relay Cetus while Sinclair narrated. But everyone heard when she opened that door to the Plains of Eidolon and walked through: The audience simply erupted in cheers.

TennoCon 2017: Warframe Q&A session turns into surprise marriage proposal

Digital Extremes’ reveal of a more open world with landscapes nearly brought down the house at TennoCon 2017, but that may not be the most important moment for one couple. (Or maybe it was, we won’t judge!) Player Brutallama (aka Dallin Heninger) took to the stage for a brief Q&A session, but then told the panel of devs that the question wasn’t for him. He got down on one knee and proposed to Todosplatano (aka Callie Wandell) in front of the entire convention and a massive live audience. She said yes.

The happy couple has six years of Warframe gameplay between them: four for him and two for her. Heninger admitted that the two had discussed marriage before, but the idea for popping the question at the convention was formed only three hours before it happened. Friend TKanimefreak (whom they just got playing a month ago, and look how he repays them!) then made the suggestion it be done on the stage, and with the help of Live Operations and Community Producer Rebecca Ford, the moment became a part of TennoCon history.

TennoCon 2017: Warframe’s Plains of Eidolon is the first step toward a true MMORPG

Do you think you know what Warframe is? Can you define the game? Well toss that out the window because the new expansion is going to change things quite a bit. Plains of Eidolon, announced tonight at the end of TennoCon 2017, is taking the shooter in a new direction by opening the world up and fleshing the universe out, creating new ways to experience the game. If you haven’t tried Warframe yet thinking the game isn’t for you, this summer will definitely be the time to jump in and give it a spin.

Can the new expansion really be that game-changing? Yes. I sat with devs as they played through a live demo earlier this afternoon, and what I saw really takes Warframe in a new direction. (I also really liked it!) Plains of Eidolon adds a whole new dimension of player freedom. It brings a more MMORPG feel into the game — makes it more of a real world. Instead of just taking missions and teleporting to small instances, players will have the chance to explore the Warframe universe in open landscapes and meet the races they’ve been protecting for the last four years. Game Director Steve Sinclair told me that while it isn’t an open world, this is a first step in that direction, incorporating elements such as NPCs, open adventure areas, and day/night cycles that influence the gameplay. Of course, the expansion will also include a new Warframe, new weapons, and plenty of new story. Read on for a preview and the brand-new trailer!

Warframe posts drop rates for all its loot, hoping to ‘start a trend’

Warframe’s Digital Extremes is joining the very small list of online game developers being transparent about just what’s in their lockboxes, lootboxes, gambleboxes, lootcrates, or whatever you want to call them. In fact, the data dump it’s produced actually covers all loot drops rates in the game, something researchers have been calling for.

Warframe is free! Which means our drop system is designed to maintain a balance,” DE writes. “Our free players can earn the game’s content, and our paying players who support us with purchases usually get first dibs on the content by using Platinum (which can be traded to free players)! As far as we can tell… we are the first developers to post something quite like this – correct us if we’re wrong! Let’s hope it works out for us and we may start a trend.”
