E3 2019: Warframe re-reveals Empyrean expansion in brand-new trailer

    
6

We’re getting a peek into Warframe’s upcoming Empyrean expansion today courtesy of the reveal on the PC Gaming Show from E3. “Empyrean is Digital Extremes’ ambitious cooperative space combat expansion, launching 1-4 players seamlessly from land into space into cooperative, tactical, ship-to-ship combat,” the studio says. You might recall that it was previously announced as Railjack.

Of course, this is just a glimpse, as Digital Extremes is gearing up for TennoCon in July, clearly Empyrean will be the centerpiece at its full reveal on July 6th. (And yes, we’ll be there in person again this year!)

Check out the new Empyrean trailer below.

The only thing that’s bothered me about Railjack, now known as Empyrean, is the relative speed and agility of your small 4 person corvette compared to the larger frigates, destroyers, and galleons we’ll be asked to face. I’m not saying it needs to be like Archwing, but keep seeing the ship looping over and under the ship it is attacking like the Millenium Falcon does to the Star Destroyers in Return of the Jedi. It’s not as fast or as slippery as a fighter(Archwing for our comparison), but it’s enough faster and has enough agility to give capital ship gunners a hard time with CIWS to keep the pursuing fighters honest.

It probably has to do with the relative ship scaling. It honestly should be the size of a marble compared to a basketball next to that capital ship it attacks in the demo last year to keep the scales similar.

For reference:

Looks good, but we will get the real details in Tennocon.

Yeah. I know some of the folks on /r/warframe were disappointed, but this was never for the hardcore fans. This was purely a teaser for the ten people out there who haven’t made Warframe accounts yet. ;)

Heh. They should know that. E3 is not the place for detailed Warframe news and events. Anyone who follows Warframe should know that. There will be no major announcements at E3 as long as Tennocon is around the corner.

Bethesda fans should have known that Starfield and TES6 wouldn’t be at E3 this year, for that matter, but it turns out fans are kinda dumb. :P

Interestingly being a long time Warframe player I’m not super excited about Empyrean. I think I know quite well what’s to expect from it. It will be good, playerbase numbers will rise to new heights, it’s quite likely Warframe will get a new portion of praise from media. But it will still feel like good old Warframe. New ways to grind, new things to grind for. I’ll be playing it and will have fun. But it will be just the same sort of fun.
