Warframe’s Octovia’s Anthem, Star Trek Online’s Season 12 Reckoning land on consoles

Sci-fi MMO fans on console, today’s a good day for you to get yourself all patched up: Both Star Trek Online and Warframe rolled out big updates today that were formerly on PC only.

Star Trek Online pushed out Season 12 “Reckoning” earlier this afternoon on both Xbox One and PS4. “Captains can now face off against [the] powerful, militant [Tzenkethi] on both Xbox One and PS4, as they participate in a new featured episode, two space queues and a full space battlezone,” says PWE. Executive Producer Stephen Ricossa made note of the up-tempo cadence for consoles:

“With the release of Season 12, you’ll notice that content is coming out sooner and sooner on Xbox One and Playstation 4. Soon, you won’t have to wait long at all to enjoy all of the great new content that comes out every month for Star Trek Online.”

And Warframe delivered Octavia’s Anthem to both major consoles this morning, bringing the sci-fi bard-themed warframe to gamers with a musical quest and special instrument.

Warframe is probably revealing its next warframe on this livestream

Warframe is set to reveal something big on today’s livestream, the studio has hinted. Rumors about “the thirty-third” — as in, 33rd warframe — look pretty solid. Umbra, maybe?

The MOP Up: Guns of Icarus has relaunched as Guns of Icarus Alliance (April 2, 2017)

The MMO industry moves along at the speed of information, and sometimes we’re deluged with so much news here at Massively Overpowered that some of it gets backlogged. That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss. Seen any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!

Let’s kick things off with Guns of Icarus’ reimaginationing. It’s the thing to do these days: relaunch your game with a new mode and name. But Guns of Icarus Online is taking the trope a step further toward the MMORPG genre instead of away from it with its replacement release of what it’s calling Guns of Icarus Alliance; it’s basically adding co-op PvE to the existing PvP mix. It’s also adding a new pricetag: Even former Guns of Icarus Online players will have to shell out for the new game, though with a nice discount.

This week we have stories and videos from RuneScape, Defiance, Space Engineers, and more, all waiting for you after the break!

Warframe broke its concurrency record, again, with Octavia’s Anthem

Remember back in November when Warframe pushed out The War Within and broke its concurrency record? Last week’s techno-bard-themed Octavia’s Anthem did it again. According to Digital Extremes, the game

“broke a new record on Steam with 69,526 peak concurrent players over the weekend. The Saturday-Sunday, March 25-26 weekend also marked Warframe’s four-year anniversary and its 20th consecutive record-breaking major update. Boasting more than 30 million registered users worldwide since its launch in March 2013, Warframe broke into the top three most played games on Steam (Top Games By Current Players category) during the same weekend.”

Massively OP’s MJ Guthrie took a peek at the new update on Friday. Enjoy!

Mark Kern’s Em-8ER on omniframe classes, THMPR animations

Mark Kern’s crowdfunded MMO-shooter Em-8ER has a slew of new videos out this week featuring animations for the THMPR, finishing off the mech’s “basic animation set.”

“Next up is our test terrain and skybox, then importing the animations into Unreal and wiring everything together,” Kern says. Over the weekend, he also posted a “draft spec” on the powered armorsuits in the game known as “omniframes.” They’re basically the game’s equivalent of classes; Kern likens them to building a deck in a collectible card game. Warframe-ish, maybe?

Back in February, we covered how the name “Em-8ER” came to be, but that’s probably not going to stop you from snarking, is it? Kern himself is well-known to the MMORPG genre thanks to his involvement with Firefall and the vanilla WoW community. He has previously discussed his plans for this shooter, including “serial Kickstarting” and a Firefall-esque foundation that doesn’t “drift over to ‘WoW with guns’ again.” Studio Crixa has raised $23,000 to date through crowdfunding and has since offered Firefall players credit toward the new game.

Warframe counts 30M registered players on its 4th birthday, basically adds bards

Happy fourth birthday, Warframe! It may not be a traditional MMORPG, but it’s still one of those rare online MMOs that’s actually doing better several years in than it was at launch: Digital Extremes is touting 30 million registered users. Actually almost 31 million! (That’s up about five million just since the end of last year.)

To celebrate the occasion, the studio is rolling out the Octavia’s Anthem update, complete with a new warframe, cosmetic outfit capture tools, new weapons, and the new music-themed questline:

“Octavia’s Anthem has Warframe players journeying through an original, lore-driven quest in search of the musically enchanted Octavia Warframe. Along with Octavia comes the introduction of a simple-to-use musical instrument that enables players to compose original songs and synchronize them to their weapons to rhythmically dominate the enemy. Music isn’t just a tool of destruction in this update — players can create musical arrangements in cooperation with other Tenno and trade songs. For story buffs and lore fans, a newly written web comic, entitled What Remains, explores material well in advance of Octavia’s Anthem.”

Warframe opens ticket sales and dates for Tennocon 2017

Digital Extremes has just announced details for Warframe’s next convention, Tennocon 2017. “TennoCon 2017 will take place on Saturday, July 8, in the heart of Digital Extremes’ hometown of London, Ontario, at the London Convention Center,” says the PR.

“Digital Extremes aims to double last year’s charity donation of nearly $75,000 and is pledging a portion of the event’s ticket sales to a soon-to-be announced charity. […] Attendees will get a deeper look inside Warframe game creation during interactive panels hosted by various members of the development team along with a host of additional Warframe-themed activities and fun throughout the day. Added to the schedule this year is the Warframe Cosplay Contest which encourages the best of the community’s skilled cosplayers to showcase their Warframe creations at the show.”

Tickets went on sale this morning and run from $25 CAD (about $19 USD) all the way up to $1000 CAD (about $762 USD) if you had wanted ridiculous piles of swag, a meeting with the dev team, and a voiceover in the game. I say “had wanted” because the top two tiers (VIP and Legendary) apparently sold out within an hour of the site’s going live. Can’t make it to Canada? Expect info on the digital pass next month.

Warframe is getting a techno-bard

The image of the traditional RPG Bard who strums a lute is going to need to move over: Warframe is bringing out a high-tech version of this class in a future update.

The new musical warframe, which currently is not named, will use embedded speakers in the suit to broadcast jams and create rave-type situations on the spot. Even more interesting is the fact that players can create their own tunes if so desired using the in-game step sequencer. Players can use up to 13 sounds and notes at a time in the creation of their personal opus.

The notes you choose might do more than just provide a toe-tapping beat; there is speculation that how many sounds you play at a time will affect the type of damage output that your character performs.

Check out the musical warframe after the break, including some of the motion capture dance moves that will power this class!
