Warframe prepares PC players for the Rising Tide and releases The Old Blood on console

    
10

The update hits are coming one after the other for Warframe fans. On the PC side, a new trailer is online that teases the opening steps of the space combat missions of Empyrean, while console players get to experience the features and ‘frames offered in The Old Blood update.

On PC, the next update called Rising Tide is due to arrive soon according to a teaser video. This content will mostly focus on setting up the drydock for the Railjack spaceship, which leads into the Empyrean spaceship combat content we covered extensively at this year’s TennoCon.

As for console players, they’re getting The Old Blood update’s content starting now. That means the hungry boy Grendel, the reworks for Ember and Vaubahn, phase two of melee changes, and the Kuva Lich system are all available for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

But what’s next for Warframe? That question will likely be answered later this afternoon during Devstream 133. We at least know that the next Prime ‘frame will be revealed.

It’s going to be Ivara, isn’t it?

Technically it should be Nezha, if you looked at the release schedule. But yes, I think it will be Ivara. This is too bad: Ivara is just about a perfect Frame right now, and Priming her would be kind of like gilding the lily.

They alternate male, male, female, female, and we just had two male frames in a row. So they’re going to do Ivara and then another female frame (Titania?) before they get to Nezha.

They have broken this rule a few times in the past (like with Zephyr). I dunno. Ivara is probably the #1 frame that DOESN’T need a Prime right now…though if I’m honest, neither does Nezha. (I just want Nezha so I can Umbra Forma it. It’s my favourite Frame.)

So far I don’t think they’ve broken male-male female-female as a pattern. They’ve frequently swapped to push the next frame in the pattern forward or back (I think Mesa Prime got pushed forward.)

Anyway, they’ve confirmed Ivara Prime is next. Unless she gets skipped, Titania Prime should be after that, then I believe Nezha would be the next male frame in summer 2020.

Yep, it’s Ivara (along with Baza and another pair of dual pistols) – I really like her Prime look, from frog to jellyfish princess!

I like the look but I don’t really get the jellyfish theme. The poison arrow frog for Ivara kind of made sense, it’s a forest animal, it climbs trees, it has a connection to archery. But nothing about her powers says “toxin” to me.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the ethereal look of the cloth physics parts. I just don’t quite understand why she’s got a more obvious poison theme than the *actual* poison frame Saryn.

Heh, having put an Umbral Forma on two of my favourites (Oberon Prime and Inaros) I’m saving my third (and any more I get) for now to see if we get any new Umbral or Sacrificial mods from The New War. I just don’t use Umbral builds on most of my regular ‘frames, and nice as the recent buff to Sacrificial Steel is none of my melee weapon builds need that extra bit of capacity. (Edited because I apparently can’t spell Sacrificial.)

I used the first Umbra Forma on my “umbra Wisp.” Although that was a combination of the fact that I liked the frame, and just wanting the Polarize screen to stop nagging me about “What forma type do you want to use?”

I actually have two of most frames now (or three, if you count Primes as basically the same thing.) Umbra Mods are super expensive to slot, and require pretty specialized builds. So rather than break all of my existing ones, I decided to actually grind to get them “for free” and just set up a second copy to use Umbra Mods. If the prime was already out, then I mostly just got a second Prime if I could.

As an experiment, I’d say the main result was to confirm my own personal bias that I don’t enjoy grinding for stuff. At all. I’d rather save up for Prime Access, then use the bundled Platinum to just buy a new frame. Grinding for Grendel isn’t fun for me. Taking Grendel into a mission, slurping up 15 enemies and then bouncing up and down until they’re basically a smoothie is fun. ^-^
