Warframe’s new Fortuna open-world expansion due next month

I haven’t really been playing much Warframe lately. You could say this is because I have developed a seriously strong Destiny 2 addiction that leaves me itchy and twitchy if I don’t do my daily milestones, but the fact of the matter is that Digital Extremes’ free-to-play sci-fi looter shooter also has to take some of the blame as it’s been stuck in a bit of a content drought at the moment. Sure we got new Arbitrations game mode and Chimera Prologue quest, but the former isn’t really all that exciting and the latter is exclusive to PC players at the moment (Fellow console Tenno where you at?!). That’s all going to change though… real soon, in fact.

First teased ages ago and then showed off in all its glory in the last few months, Warframe’s new Fortuna update will be released in the first week of November. The announcement was made during the DE Devstream 118 this Friday past, where the latest build (with newly tweaked graphics and art) was shown off in action. This brand new Venus open-world expansion is already looking ridiculously massive, orders of magnitude bigger than the Plains of Eidolon update. Besides for the rolling landscape that we get to explore though, the Venus open-world will introduce new factions, some friendly and some not, and of course those giant freaking spider beasts. Gee thanks, DE. Now I’m never going to convince Darryn to play Warframe.

We will also get the introduction of the awesome K-Drive hoverboards which look like they will be the closest thing we’re getting to a Skate 4 game anytime soon. Then there are the new modular kitgun weapons we can build, and the introduction of MOA Pets, which you can customize with various parts and emotional chips to control their behaviour. Behaviour that involves following you in a crouch which may just be the greatest thing this game has ever done!

Unfortunately, there’s a little bit of bad news though. We had been told that Fortuna will be done separately to Railjack, the simply stunning looking new co-op space combat game mode that blew everybody’s mind when it was debuted at Tennocon, but some folks were still holding out hope that they would drop together. However, during the Devstream it was confirmed that Railjack will only be released sometime in early 2019. Not that we’ll mind the time as we’ll just spend it trying to see what else we can get our MOA pets to do.

  1. I’ve been wanting to dive in again for a few weeks now, but gaming time is scarce these days

      I’ve been feeling a small itch myself, but I’ve got so many other things higher on my list and as you say, not enough time to cross them off that list.

        I wanna do the new quests to be honest, but my farming is being scratched by Fortnite Save the World

          Tried the elite alerts yet? They’re kinda painful. Did an excavation, went through two host migrations because the hosts died & quit, then the last two of us spent over five minutes protecting one excavator which only got half way before we extracted – we decided to quit because power carriers were spawning so slowly.
