Warframe shows off Empyrean gameplay as iDreamsky contemplates buying Leyou

Warframe is one of those game that just doesn’t like to have things spread out when it comes to announcements. Much like RuneScape, it likes to unload a huge block of news and announcements and then piss off to the pub for some beer and chicken wings or something. All without inviting us! I kid, I kid. Anyway, allow me to clean up and organize the confusion just for you:

  • Devstream 134 had a whole lot of Empyrean things to showcase, such as details on researching items for your clan’s Railjack, the various systems in said spaceship, and the Intrinsics progression system that lets players improve in various Railjack skills like Piloting, Engineering, and Gunnery. It also promises a Command skill that will launch later, allowing players to have an NPC crew. Also, for those who aren’t in a clan or otherwise don’t want to be bothered with the belt sander of grinding required to build a Railjack or its drydock, there will be a matchmaking system. All of this is previewed in the devstream and elaborated on in the summary post, and you can also get a look at the completely absurd requirements to get a Railjack of your own with MJ’s handy-dandy guide. Good luck, solo players.
  • Tennobaum 2019, aka Warframe’s holiday, is going to offer some lovely philanthropic cheer. Any time a player gifts a Tenno something in the In-Game Market between now and December 31st, a $0.25 donation will be made up to a grand total of $50,000 to benefit the London Food Bank to help feed those in need. The total donation will be handed to the charity at the end of December, however large it may be.
  • Are you going to be watching The Game Awards on Thursday, December 12th? If you’re a Warframe fan, you might want to be, as the devs are teasing a special announcement. Those who are watching can also get themselves a free Glaxion Vandal weapon via Twitch Drops. Come for the announcement, stay for the freezy laser.
  • Finally, The Old Blood update has arrived to the Nintendo Switch version. Just in case you weren’t already aware. Enjoy the gluttonous new Grendel Frame.

Last but not least, Niko Partners Senior Analyst Daniel Ahmad noted a pair of articles indicating that Chinese corporation iDreamsky is aiming to buy up almost 70% of the stake in Leyou Technologies. Leyou owns both Warframe company Digital Extremes and is likewise involved in the creation of the new Amazon-partnership Lord of the Rings MMO, so if this deal goes through, it oculd be one to watch.
