TennoCon 2020: Watch the full demo of Warframe’s Heart of Deimos reveal

The TennoCon 2020 live reveal of Warframe’s Heart of Deimos was quite a bit to take in, so we understand if you missed anything the first time around. Or maybe you can’t wait until the August 25th launch and just want to revisit that thematic landscape to revel in the infested atmosphere for a while. Maybe you missed TennoLive the first time around. Whatever your reason for wanting to see more heart of Deimos, we’ve got you covered: Thanks Digital Extreme’s official recording, you’ve got the opportunity to watch the demo as many times as you’d like to soak in all the ambiance and information.

We won’t judge if you use that time to watch Live Operations and Community Director Rebecca Ford pop giant pustules and splatter goo all around, or if you rewind just to watch the free-boarding on an infested dragonfly. You could be hoping to zoom in on those ancient letter written on the Orokin walls hoping to decipher the secrets hidden there. Us? We’ll be here watching the feeding of the Helminth over and over. Just look at that happy smile he gets after his snacks…

Two thoughts about the whole demo stream.

First, I think my negative reaction to the Helminth Chrysalis was because they decided to show it off by feeding Mag to it. Mag was my starter frame, and still my favorite to use. I’d probably have been fine watching it eat Volt.

Second, I just realized that I really, really want the sentinel octopus pet skin that is part of the Hydroid Deluxe bundle. I think it would be adorable with the jellyfish princess Ivara Prime.

The sentinel skin is cute, but am not sure if it’s only for Diriga? Who’s one of the sentinels I ranked up for mastery then never used again – it does have some neat precepts, but it’s no Helios or Carrier or Kavat.

Have been thinking more about feeding ‘frames to Helminth, and realised that most of the commentary I’ve seen so far has been from veterans like us who’ll need to farm and build them again. But from the perspective of newer players, in many cases they’ll get the base version of the ‘frame first then later on get the Prime version of the ‘frame and the base version will either gather dust or be sold off for a handful of credits to free up the slot, so having something else to do with it is really neat.

Just for Diriga, the Grineer-looking sniper Sentinel. I mostly use Helios too, because auto-scanning if something new pops up and because the Deconstructor weapon actually hits really hard for a Sentinel weapon. Diriga kind of suffers from lack of focus – it comes with a sniper weapon, but the Precepts it uses are both short range stuns. One is a single target chain stun, I think the other is AoE. So if you’re being stealthy it won’t do much at all – until you get noticed, then it makes certain that EVERYONE knows you’re there. OnO

I suppose the Helminth system will be a lot more useful to people who don’t reflexively collect everything. I know a lot of people on the forums have mentioned “looking forward to the new Prime, I’m ready to delete the old version to make room!” So for those players it probably will be nice to get one last thing from a frame they don’t want anymore. (I am almost certainly completely weird for keeping all the original frames even when I get a Prime version – more costume slots!)

This game looks kind of cool, looks like the whole Solar System is the map of the game. How big is the playable world map?

Most planets etc. in the solar system have about a dozen nodes, and each node is a procedurally generated mission built from different corridor and room tilesets. Once Heart of Deimos releases there will be three “open world” playable maps – the grassy hills and coastlines of the Plains of Eidolon on Earth, the frozen wastes and coolant lakes and mushroom forests of the Orb Vallis on Venus, and the Infested fleshscape shown in this video.

The first two maps are pretty huge (though you can zip across them fairly quickly once you do the quests to get yourself jet-wings or a hoverboard) and both have extensive cave systems beneath the surface, from the sounds of it this new map will be smaller and more compact on the surface but with a larger network of procedurally generated tunnels beneath.

There are also space missions in a four-player ship, which don’t have that much missi0n or map variety yet but are dang cool and have a lot of potential.
