Warframe’s Plains of Eidolon is aiming to launch by Friday the 13th

    
22
Are we there yet? Almost, actually. Digital Extremes told Warframe players yesterday that the Plains of Eidolon expansion is coming sooner that you might think. “The goal is to launch within the next 10 days,” DE’s Rebecca Ford wrote. She further notes that the new warframe quest’s launch has been delayed a week past the release of the warframe, Gara, itself, “due to a scheduling conflict with one of [the studio’s] key Ostron actors.”

We spoke to the DE team back at Tennocon this summer, when we learned that Plains of Eidolon intends to add some game-changing MMO flair to the shooter, with more open-world landscapes, interactive NPCs, a “gripping” story, a diurnal cycle, and new mission types, with an emphasis on exploration.

Im looking forward to the “fresh start” of a whole new area/world/game.

Im someone who started warframe so long ago, that I no longer remember where in the story and quest line that I left off. With all the changes to the map and the systems in the game, and having been jumped to other planets from friends and guild members, I simply have no simple way to say “Ah hah, here is where I left off” and continue my adventure.

Eidolon is like “book 2” for me, enabling me to write off book 1 as something I skipped around in massively, with no hopes of starting over from page 1.

Got some space herpes on your neck there. Some space ointment should clear that right up.

Warframe is probably one of the most underrated games that is out at this moment. I think a lot of people tried it out when it first came out and did not like it. The thing is DE has revamped the game so much that it is almost unrecognizable from the game that launched. It really is a good game and it keeps getting better.

Apparently they have incredibly poor marketing. I mean, a major expansion is coming, and the announcement for it came from a developer giving a 10 day heads-up. Too much hype is a bad thing, but 10 days notice without an official announcement is just poor form.

Where did you get this from? PoE was announced months ago, with DE aiming for a September / October release – the forum post today was merely the first to give more specifics on the target date.

I was referring to a launch date announcement, not the expansion itself.

Going from “Coming soon” to “10 days” isn’t good enough when the game has a chance to bring in new players, especially when another shooter just hit beta (battlefront 2), and Destiny 2 is in a few weeks.

and again, where on there is the launch date? Go to Warframe.com and tell me where you can find a Plains of Eidolon date. Do you think new people are going to watch a 17 minute Dev letter to get something that should be plastered to their front page? When someone Googles Warframe, are they going to be redirected to a forum post?

Indeed, the main site does not mention the date (yet). To my knowledge the new PoE site should be up in the coming days.

In any case, since July the first thing that the new users coming to warframe.com see is the PoE landing page:
https://www.warframe.com/plains-of-eidolon

Returning users automatically skip the PoE page, most likely thanks to a cookie.

It’s very spartan, true, but it’s not like there’s complete absence of any PoE info on the main site. This PoE mini page is actually the thing new users see first when they visit warframe.com

Well, the announcement was apparently at Tennocon in July. It’s definitely been known as “coming soon” for a few months, though without a solid release date.
Not that I don’t think the game wouldn’t benefit from more marketing, too.

I think the chart Bree published a couple of days ago relative to PUBG’s concurrency showed Warframe in the top 10 Steam concurrent users, so it seems to have a pretty good community. For me, I really enjoy the gun-fu and the aesthetic, but get burned out by the procedurally generated maps pretty quickly, and can’t even motivate myself to do the resource grind for primes.

Definitely looking forward to a real story and open world environment. This game stays on my hard drive, now I’ll have a reason to log in.

Warframe is definitely underrated, and woefully overlooked by many of the larger gaming sites. It really is a shame, especially when you consider how polished, refined, and complete the game is, and how awesome the guys and girls are at Digital Extreme. Warframe has grown by leaps and bounds since the first time I tried it 3 years ago, and I am having a blast learning the ins and outs of the game all over again. Definitely looking forward to the FREE Plains of Eidolon expansion, and all the open-world and new weapon crafting system goodness that comes with it!

Whew, need to speed up my prep a bit then. The good news is that I FINALLY got the damn Nami Skyla Prime blade and built it. Now all I need is the Drifting Contact mod and the dual stat toxin mod from Vor and I’ll be all set. Going to be cutting it close but I think I can make it, RNG willing.

and the Grim Dawn expansion along with a game called Elex that I am looking forward to launches about the same time. Then it goes nuts at the end of the month too at around the time Destiny 2 launches.

hehe it sounds like I am complaining and I guess I am a little but I am doing it with a smile on my face as I type so not really being serious. Though my wallet is quietly weeping in the corner :-)
