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!

was anything else added with the update other than the additional frame? Its odd that so many people would play just for another new frame, which they add pretty regularly.

There is a quest related to the new ‘frame and a whole new system, also related to that frame. There were also 2 new weapons and pile of weapon fixes.

I jumped in a little bit. This was a game I enjoyed when I first tried in in ’14 or ’15 but didn’t really stick with it in large part because it was tough to even find PUGs. It’s fun, though could have used the ability to refresh tutorials since the game isn’t that intuitive and there’s a lot going on. Little frustrating that every squad I got matched with would just silently speed run every mission, but I guess that’s what happens in a game’s third or fourth year of release

Pretty much why i stopped playing. Most of the later game stuff isnt meant to be solo’d, and any groups you get in, all speed run it to the point of ridiculousness.

Yeah, it also seems a very farm-heavy game. I noticed particularly the assassination missions that are guaranteed to drop at least one of a particular component, by the time I was back in my ship the squad was already requing.

um I might have poked my nose into this game again after watching MJ’s stream. Honestly I am pretty lost at the moment as I forgot all the things. It is not going to be a “main” as I find it tiring to play a lot but the odd mission now and again is fun.
