Many Warframe fans have already been enjoying the recent Plains of Eidolon Remaster update that came around. But there’s more where that came from, as another update, The Jovian Concord, is set to arrive next week. And it’s bringing…parkour!
But there’s more to the update than that. The Jovian Conchord will bring “full graphic overhaul of the Tenno-favorite Jupiter tileset (AKA ‘Gas City’), now with reworked environments and gameplay,” according to the press release. In addition, it also “enables Tenno to wield the powerful 40th Warframe ‘Wisp’ to experience a variety of new enemies including the deadly new flying Eidolon boss. “
“Beneath gaseous bronze clouds lies the opportunity to explore something surprisingly new. The Jovian Concord reimagines the original Warframe environment with a vast level of physical terrain, every inch offering a fresh look and feel. Using nimble parkour skills, Tenno can explore internal heights and face new hazards or gauge their chances outside by leaping through the air along floating stations, distant platforms, crossbars, antennas, and more,” developer Digital Extremes explained.
“Longtime villain Alad V’s twisted experiments with Sentient technology have yielded hideous cyborg-like results — Amalgam variants and Jetpack Agents — whose laboratories hide a deeper sinister plot. Through new Sabotage, Rescue and Spy missions, and even a new gameplay mode, “Disruption”, Tenno will piece together frightening tidbits of lore that could lay the groundwork for a looming war — all before confronting Gas City’s deadliest threat, the ever-present menace the Ropalolyst.”
As far as what features fans can expect, they’re broken down below:
- RESERVOIRS: Choose and summon a Reservoir filled with Motes that attach to and aid Wisp and her allies. Haste Mote grants increased movement and attack speed. Vitality Mote increases maximum health and heals over time. Shock Mote stuns nearby enemies.
- WIL-O-WISP: Cast forward a spectral image of Wisp to confuse and distract enemies. Reactivate to travel to its position. Hold to have the image travel faster and teleport to its position on release.
- BREACH SURGE: Open a dimensional breach to overwhelm nearby enemies and cause them to release aggressive Surge sparks when damaged.
- SOL GATE: Open a portal to the sun to irradiate enemies with a devastating beam of pure solar plasma.
As noted, the update will be available for PC next week. There’s no word on when it’ll come to consoles, but the developers note to look for it “soon.”
